Not the most-sung computer visionary, but an important one nonetheless.

He defined education of the 21st century:

Me: This is a copy/paste of Wikipedia.
Student: Isn't it how research work?
Me: No.
Student: Too much work, I quit.

(Really happened, she really quit.)

Well, he had help. If Al Gore hadn't invented the internet, you couldn't copy from Wikipedia and paste into Word.

Also: ROWFUL.

And nowadays, corporations are trying to take away from us a core feature of computers
(Have you tried to copy&paste recently on your cellphone?)

Too bad his name will fade to nothingness outside nerd circles :/

Bing?! Copy&share!? What the hell is wrong with you guys!??!?!

Anyway, apparently someone mentioned Tesler on a national radio show last night over here, so apparently even normies can bow down and pay their respects to people that done actual things other than selling stuff.

The host explicitly mentioned Xerox PARC, which was awesome (FFS, we need PARC to come back from the dead and give a couple lessons of sanity and actual innovation to UXtarded phone frat boys!).
...then moved to complain that copy&paste has done far too much harm, like those anti-knife numbnuts!

Bing is actively to piss Google off. Only reason. I don't even DO searches with that menu.

Copy and share are two different options, it isn't a single "copy & share", though the bad menu layout makes it look otherwise. I have no use for share, but no convenient way to disable it.
