Mother of All Demos

I meant to post this earlier, but December 9, 2008 is the 40th anniversary of Doug Englebart's "Mother of All Demos": The demo of early hypertext system NLS includes the first known working versions of things like the computer mouse, videoconferencing, email, and hypertext linking.

The Wikipedia link is pretty sparse, considering the geek-quotient of the event; Stanford's MouseSite has more info.)
