So.. we not have some fun and do some selfie replications of the image? And thus an impromptu tiny associative trail was started

And given a few quick responses, I wanted to play with assembling a twitter custom timeline (a poor web weaver’s storify if you ask me)


In looking at that Englebart photo, I kept thinking that the white cord on his side (assuming it was a small audio monitor) looked like a prototype of iPhone ear buds. This sent me down another trail
