Ever wondered what early computing looked like? How about the first usage of a mouse? Enter The Mother of All Demos — a 1968 computer-performance-of-sorts. Join us as we watch highlights of this televised demo that introduced copy & paste, the mouse, and information retrieval.
- A playlist of highlights on YouTube (Spoilers: we will be watching this!)
- The full video on YouTube

We look forward to discussing the history of computer interfaces together. There will be snacks!
