When it comes to innovation, technology is that field which has witnessed lots of good things from the last few decades. One of the best innovations in the computer digitized is the invention of copy-paste. Larry Tesler, who invented copy-paste in a digital computer system has reportedly died at the age of 74. Larry was a Stanford graduate student who pioneered the field of computing; however, he died on Monday in San Francisco. Tesler reportedly works for blue-chip companies like Apple, Amazon and Yahoo.
Tesler at first was found to be working for Xerox in the early days of the silicon valley startup era. However, later his true potential was found out by Apple’s visionary co-founder Steve Jobs. Xerox wrote in his memory “your work in the form of copy-paste, cut and replace has been quite revolutionary, which has helped many people in their workday. Tesla worked for more than 17 years for Apple while becoming a chief scientist for the tech giant company.
The scientists were reportedly born in Bronx, New York in 1945 and had to work at the genesis stage of computers. He had to come up with lots of new things while working for tech startups in silicon valley during the 60s and 80s. He specialized in user interface design and was working to develop methods to discover copy and paste function. Tesla had to make some changes to the traditional way of cutting texts and pasting it. The copy-paste function first was incorporated in apple’s software in Lisa computers which was liked by Steve jobs immediately. The reaction by legendary entrepreneur Steve Jobs was great to witness because he said it was a revolutionary feature to be incorporated in personal computers. Tech experts around the world remembered this legend for his priceless contribution to the computer industry.
