William English, the computing pioneer and visionary who helped develop the first-ever computer mouse with Douglas Englebart several decades ago, passed away at the age of 91 on July 26, reported The New York Times. English suffered from respiratory failure, according to the outlet. While Englebart was considered the visionary, English was one of the only people who truly grasped the ideas.
