a quick summary of what xerox parc had invented by 1979


Update: This is, by the way, my third blog post. Ever. Anyway, the reason I wrote it and the reason I’m updating it is to say that at the time I posted this, I was reading an excellent book about the history of Xerox Parc called Dealers of Lightning: Xerox PARC and the Dawn of the Computer Age. Check it out.

actually. Xerox was pretty damn cool back then. no credit given where due now! it’s all apple and canon and epson and samsung. true innovations come every couple generations, apparently?

their rebranding was good, all lowercase letters.
