This video is about Alan Kay @ SAP in Palo Alto. Alan Kay is a computer pioneer, he was part of the the Xerox PARC team of about 30 researchers who developed many of the key concepts of the PC and notebook. Here he talks about the lack of forward thinking in technology design and innovation. He advocates system thinking rather than discrete products such as apps and hardware, the goal is integration and collaboration among our technologies because that's what is important for humans: more collaboration. He also mentions that Steve Jobs missed a lot when he visited Xerox PARC and replicated the graphical user interface and mouse — he didn't see the computers were all connected, used Ethernet, and connected to the nascent Internet then called ARPAnet. Steve Jobs missed half of it and didn't see that the computers were all connected "because he's a visual guy."
