title Sketchpad, A Man-Machine Graphical Communication System
source Proceedings 1963 Spring Joint Computer Conference AFIPS, 1963: Vol. 23
summary The Sketchpad system makes it possible for a man and a computer to converse rapidly through the medium of line drawings. Heretofore, most interaction between man and computers has been slowed down by the need to reduce all communication to written statements that can be typed; in the past, we have been writing letters to rather than conferring with our computers, For many types of communication, such as describing the shape of a mechanical part or the connections of an electrical circuit, typed statements can prove cumbersome. The Sketehpad system, by eliminating typed statements (except for legends) in favor of line drawings, opens up a new area of man-machine communication.
