The creator of the copy paste is dead! We owe him a lot of thanks

Larry Tesler Apple copy paste cutA major loss has been in the field of information science and technology as Monday's 74-year-old computer scientist Larry Tesler died, whose contribution to the ease of use of computers and laptops was the culmination of a long career that even affects modern information technology. . Born in New York in 1945, Tesler studied computer science at Stanford University and after completing his degree, he participated in Artificial Intelligence research (long before it was disseminated) while also involved in anti-war and anti-corporate monopoly companies such as IB. . In 1973 Tesler began working at the Research Center Xerox Palo Alto (PARC), where it remained until 1980. Xerox PARC is known for developing the graphical mouse-based user interface, now considered a given thing. Tesler also worked with Tim Mott to create a word processor called Gypsy, which is well known for developing the terms "cut", "copy" and "paste" when it comes to cut commands. ), copy and paste texts."cut", "copy" και "paste"

Xerox PARC is also known for not capitalizing on its pioneering PC research, so Tesler moved to Apple Computer in 1980 where he worked until 1997. Over time, he held countless positions in the company, including Vice President of AppleNet and was even its lead scientist Apple, a position once held by Steve Wozniak, before he finally left the company. In addition to his contributions to some of Apple's most famous products, Tesler was also known for his efforts to make software and user interfaces more accessible. In addition to the popular "cut", "copy" and "paste" functions, Tesler also supported the UI design approach, known as non-computer modeling, which is reflected in his personal website. In essence, it ensures that users' actions remain consistent across the various functions and applications of the operating system. When they open a word processor, for example, users now automatically assume that pressing any of the alphanumeric keys on their keyboard will result in this character appearing on the screen at the cursor input point.Xerox PARC Larry Tesler

However, there was a time when word processors could be converted to multiple functions, where typing on the keyboard would either add characters to a document or allow functional commands to be entered. There are still many software applications where tools and functionality change depending on how they work. That is, there are complex applications such as Photoshop, where many tools behave differently and perform different functions, but mostly modern operating systems such as Apple, MacOS and Windows of Microsoft they are very accessible and easy to use, so users have no problem handling and implementing them.Apple

After leaving Apple in 1997, Tesler founded a company called Stagecast Software, which developed applications that made it easier for children to learn programming concepts. In 2001 he joined Amazon and eventually became Vice President of Shopping Experience there, in 2005 he moved to Yahoo, where he dealt with the user experience and design team of the company, and then in 2008 he became involved with products at 23andMe. Tesler quit 23andMe in 2009 and has since focused on consulting.amazon Tesler

Finally, Tesler is one of the main reasons why computers are now available not only in research centers but also in homes. The creation and development of the personal computer was intended on the one hand for people to acquire powerful technological machines that would facilitate their day-to-day lives in a variety of ways but at the same time be accessible and easy to use, so that no specialized knowledge was needed and know-how in the IT field to exploit them.
