new year, new subject in the Cuis list?? :-)
I think that the ideal solution is what Phillip said, no one person but all
united solving the problem or what Ken did (incredible!).
I also think that sadly, there is no time and we must be practical, and due
to the current way of thinking/living and the way we were taught, we need a
kind of "hero", somebody to lead the change or at least start it.
Regarding Licklider, I think his success was not only because of him but
the environment. At that time everything in our field was about to be
discovered and there was a lot of money to invest on that... the context
has changed a lot...
