Doug Englebart gave a real-time demo in Dec 1968 of an on-line system.

I was wondering how easily something like this could be done today...
Some bits are trivial (monitors & networking),
but others are harder (his drill-down files)

Anyone else have their favourite "world-changing" event?
[Including Linus - remembering where we are :-) ]
