Heard of death today of Larry Tesler, pioneer worker at Xerox Parc. He
advanced the era of human-computer interaction. He 'created' copy-
and-paste and cut-and-paste which made everyday computing in DOS-age easier
before GUI-age made mouse-driven commands easier on computer users. Early
pioneers are leaving us and I state their drive to innovate to advance
computer-use easier is being lost.

Happy computing all.

Murray 🙂
