Larry Tesler, Computer Scientist Who Created Cut, Copy, and Paste, Dies At 74

Larry Tesler, a computer scientist who created the terms "cut," "copy," and "paste," has passed away at the age of 74. Gizmodo reports: Born in 1945 in New York, Tesler went on to study computer science at Stanford University, and after graduation he dabbled in artificial intelligence research (long before it became a deeply concerning tool) and became involved in the anti-war and anti-corporate monopoly movements, with companies like IBM as one of his deserving targets. In 1973 Tesler took a jo...

Information wants to be free*

*No, that’s not what he said, and no, it’s not completely true. Thirty-five years ago, in a conversation with Steve Wozniak (pioneer of the personal computer), Stuart Brand (founder of the Whole Earth Catalog along with many other foundational disruptions), said: On the one hand you have — the point you’re making Woz — is that information sort of wants to be expensive because it is so valuable — the right information in the right place just changes your life.

Woz Remembers Steve Jobs' Ambition to Change Humanity

The Bay Area Newsgroup reports on Steve Wozniak's new interview with longtime Apple evangelist Guy Kawasaki on Kawasaki's Remarkable People podcast. Woz reveals he's still on the Apple payroll -- he never left it -- and he's still receiving about $50 a week "out of loyalty. Because what could I do that's more important in my life?"

12 wildly successful companies started by people in their 20s

It's never too young to act on a great idea, and these successful entrepreneurs prove just that. Steve Jobs was only 21 when he started Apple out of his parents' garage, and Tyler Haney was 25 when she launched clothing company Outdoor Voices.

Here's how Google has changed throughout the decade, from its quirky campus to its famous 'moonshots' (GOOG, GOOGL)

Google was already a giant in the tech industry by the end of 2009, dominating in ad-search, video-sharing, and mobile operating systems.  The company was still famously eccentric, housing a dinosaur statue on its Googleplex campus and regularly tweaking its signature logo on the search page to celebrate different events.  But Google management looked very different: CEO Eric Schmidt presided over the company, as the company board thought the two young cofounders Larry Page and Sergey Brin nee...

On the Visual Thesaurus: Prohibitions linguistic hangover

October 2019 marks the centenary of the Volstead Act, the federal legislation that led to the passage of the 18th Amendment to the US Constitution—and to the misguided 13-year social experiment known as Prohibition. From January 1, 1920, until Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s inauguration in March 1933, the manufacture, sale, and importation of “intoxicating liquors” were officially outlawed. As everyone knows, all of those activities flourished illicitly. And so did new vocabulary items. I’m ...

Startup Ideas that Began Small and Got Big

Entrepreneurs are pioneers that look to create solutions to address the needs of their customers. Launching your own startup business requires a leap of faith and might be long and risky. Those who have found their niche, focused on innovation, planned for their growth, collaborated and had a little bit of luck have succeeded. However, many entrepreneurs are overwhelmed by the belief they have to start from scratch. They ponder on what they could do that no one has ever done before. In other wo...

An original Apple I in a briefcase just sold for nearly $500k

  Most people wouldn’t think too much of a computer crammed into a briefcase — but if it’s one of the few remaining examples of the first computer ever built by Apple? That’s a whole different story. An original Apple I from 1976 — as hand-built by Steve Wozniak — just sold for £371,260 (or roughly $471,000) in a Christie’s Auction. It comes set inside a leather briefcase, complete with a built-in keyboard. So, why the briefcase? Because the Apple I didn’t come with a case of its own. $666 go...

The History of PC Hardware, in Pictures

We all use personal computers, and we all take them for granted in our everyday lives. It’s easy to forget that PCs have only been around for a couple of decades, and initially were nowhere near the powerhouses we have on our desks today. For example, did you know that the first “portable” computer weighed 25 kg (55 lb) and cost close to $20,000? Or that the first laser printer was big enough to fill up most of a room? Or even, that you basically had to build the first Apple computer yourself? T...

What People Don’t Know About Introverts and Extroverts

When you characterize someone as an introvert, you are most likely referring to behaviors that seem quiet and withdrawn. We think of introverts as shy and anti-social, preferring to be alone or with one or two people rather than at a party or in a crowd. Extroverts on the other hand are assumed to be gregarious, loud and in search of the next party. There are many misconceptions, however, regarding these general beliefs about introverts and extroverts. The terms introvert and extrovert wer...
