Larry Tesler Dies at 74 →

Luke Dormehl:

Larry Tesler, a pioneering computer scientist who worked at Apple from 1980 to 1997, and created computerized cut, copy, and paste, died this week at the age of 74.

Tesler was VP of AppleNet and Apple’s Advanced Technology Group. During his time at Apple, he played a key role in the development of products ranging from the Lisa to the Newton MessagePad.

And that was just the tip of the iceberg when it came to his contribution to computing.

Tesler is not nearly as well-known as he deserves to be.
