About the Seminar 1

A Comprehensive Strategy for Bootstrapping Organizations Into the 21st Century - Doug Engelbart's three-day management intensive presented March 24-26, 1992, at Stanford University, facilitated by Margaret Chambers. The program featured in-depth coverage of Doug's complete strategic framework, presented in twelve sessions (four sessions per day). Video production by the Stanford Instructional Television Network (SITN), now available on our YouTube Channel and permanently archived in the Douglas Engelbart Collection at the Internet Archive.

Throughout the 1990s, the Bootstrap Institute[*] produced a number of three-day, one-day, and half-day management seminars at Stanford University, SRI International, Logitech HQ, also in Washington, DC, and Tokyo, Japan. The format and materials for this three-day seminar were originally conceived and developed in 1990 by Doug Engelbart and Christina Engelbart with grants from the Mitchell Kapor Family Foundation, Sun Microsystems, and Apple Computer.
