The computer visionary, Doug Engelbart, BSOD’d on July 2. He should have been the computing star everyone outside of the nerd community knew about, but he was just a few years ahead of curve — which is sort of an occupational hazard among visionaries.
Here’s a link to his groundbreaking 1968 demo (aka “The Mother of all Demos”), which is sort of dry now, but then…wow.
If you would rather get a more rounded pack of info about this critical developmental period (mid-60s through the mid-80s) of computers, I very highly recommend Part 3 of the 1992 documentary series “The Machine That Changed the World”. Nerd me finds it riveting but not dry and dull. It features the talking heads of a lot of key [semi-]famous names in computing — if you were a nerd at the time, you knew them well. (Engelbart briefly pops up around 6:41, though you really should watch the whole thing):
