Bootstrapping: Douglas Engelbart, Coevolution, and the Origins of Personal Computing (Writing Science)
by Thierry Bardini

Book News Annotation:

Bardini (communication, Universite de Montreal) analyzes the genesis of personal computing through a close study of Engelbart's life. It also examines the "bootstrapping" process by which the invention of new hardware and software systems was simultaneously matched with the creation of a new concept we call the "user." Engelbart's work and his vision for a human-computer interface is considered in its historical context.
