J.C.R Licklider is the person who considered and invented the first generation of Internet system and Graphical User Interface. Moreover, his concept of “Intergalactic Computer Network” is used on many parts of current Internet systems.
The reason why he tried to create Internet system is because he expected that provision of Internet system develop the thought process of people. His idea was brilliant, but at that time, the Internet system like he thought was kind of dreaming like flying carpet now. However, he continued challenging, and in 1963, he published the book about the concept of “Intergalactic Computer Network”. This concept might be the first step of providing Internet system in this current world.
The greatest thing about him is that he had always looked at several decades later of future. He is the first man who mentioned the necessity and importance of providing Internet system for nations even though the personal use of Internet system was not provided yet at that time. The one major concept is his “Intergalactic Computer Network” concept, which provide worldwide Internet system.

“The general precept of any product is that simple things should be easy, and hard things should be possible” by Alan Kay who is an American computer scientist. He was also the person who mentioned that computer should be easy to use for everyone. From that idea, he created the concept of ‘Personal Computer’. He left another well known phrase that “The best way to predict the future is to invent it.” Personally, I really like the words “hard things should be possible” from the quote which I put on my first Triple Troll Quote .
Ted Nelson is the person who created the word “Hypertext” in 1965. He also made the words of “hypermedia”, “Virtuality”, “Intertwingularity”, and etc. His priority of work was the same reason as Alan and Licklider, which is to let people use computer easily.
At that time, the computer was so big, expensive, and difficult to use. However, these three pioneers had realized that provision of easy use computer would develop and create the better society. They were great as engineers, but more than that, they were extremely respectable people as human.
