Christel Deskins

One of the pioneers of the modern computer interface has passed away: the New York Timesreports that William “Bill” English died on July 26th from respiratory failure at the age of 91. Alongside Douglas Englebart at the Stanford Research Institute, English helped develop the first computer mouse and put together a 1968 “Mother of All Demos” that outlined many concepts that would come to PCs over the decades, such as graphical user interfaces, online text editing, video calls and hypertext links.

The Federal Communications Commission estimates 21 million people lack a high speed internet connection, but other estimates are double that figure. Approximately half of the U.S. population—157 million people—have a slow or unreliable internet connection, according to Microsoft.

2. One of the largest rural internet providers recently filed for bankruptcy.

Frontier Communications,

which was awarded about $1 billion by the FCC five years ago to help expand networks in rural areas, filed for bankruptcy at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Bankruptcy documents showed
