He is best known for inventing the computer mouse,as a pioneer of human-computer interaction whose team developed hypertext, networked computers, and precursors to GUIs- and as a committed and vocal proponent of the development and use of computers and networks to help cope with the worlds increasingly urgent and complex problems.His lab at SRI was responsible for more breakthrough innovation than possibly any other lab before or since. Engelbart had embedded in his lab a set of organizing principles, which he termed his bootstrapping strategy, which he specifically designed to bootstrap and accelerate the rate of innovation achievable.
