In 1970, Xerox Corporation gathered together a team of world class researchers and gave them the mission of creating "the architecture of information." The scientists of the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) lived up to this challenge by inventing personal distributed computing, graphical user interfaces, the first commercial mouse, bit-mapped displays, Ethernet, client/ server architecture, object-oriented programming, laser printing and many of the basic protocols of the Internet. In the years since Xerox established the Palo Alto Research Center, PARC technologies have changed the world.
