About This Project

Doug Engelbart’s 1962 manifesto Augmenting Human Intellect: A Conceptual Framework offers a unique, multidisciplinary perspective on how human ingenuity, in symbiosis with networked digital computing technologies, might enlarge human capability and help address humanity’s most urgent problems.

Ranging from linguistics, to ethics, to engineering, to philosophy, to sheer storytelling, this document should be a basic part of a liberal education–yet it remains relatively unknown, overshadowed by the technological developments it fueled.

This project seeks to bring Augmenting Human Intellect: A Conceptual Framework into the primary place of study and discussion where it belongs.
