We honour Larry Tesler, the unknown computer legend who died this week.
Posted on 21st February 2020
Not many people will have heard of Larry Tesler, the computer scientist who died this week at 74. Yet Tesler invented “copy and paste”. His idea made many lives easier and he should be honoured as an unsung hero. Of course, his invention has also been a boon to plagiarism.
We publish this article in his memory, entirely cut and pasted from The Times leader today.
