We got some funding in the early sixties, I think it was from NASA, and set up an experimental environment with several different kinds of devices; a tracking ball, a light pen, and things of that sort that were available at the time. As we were setting up the experiments, I happened to remember some notes that I had made in a pocket notebook some years before, and sketched that out to Bill English, who was the engineer setting up the experiments, and he put one together, with the help of a few draftsmen and machinists.

On the mouse, one button was to click, another was called command accept, and the third was called command delete. If you wanted to delete a word, you would hit the middle button on the keypad, which was the letter d. It was d because it is the fourth letter in the alphabet, and this was a binary coding, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16. Then you pointed at and clicked the beginning of the thing you wanted deleted, then you pointed at and clicked the end of the thing you wanted deleted, and if you hadn’t made any mistakes, you would hit the command accept key on the mouse.
