presentations (about 3 minutes each).

Engelbart's December 1968 presentation at the Fall Joint Computer Conference was

- using a hierarchical view control to navigate through hierarchies
- clicking on links to jump to other locations
- collarboration between people working at two separate work stations

Engelbart's demo (Real Video programs):
