Augmentation Research Center
Set up in the 1960's by Doug Engelbart, ARC is a lab at the Stanford Research Center in Palo Alto. It is credited with developing GUI tools, including the mouse, graphical icons, and the hypertext system. These were expanded at Xerox PARC, and twenty years later, they became the basis of the Apple computer and operating system. ARC also developed ideas about teleconferencing, e-mail, and workgroup processing tools.
