How Could Xerox Have Blown It?

Cited at Lakeshore from the WSJ:

It was at the Xerox PARC labs in Sil­i­con Val­ley in the 1970s that the Eth­er­net was devel­oped to link dif­fer­ent com­puter net­works. Researchers there also devel­oped the first per­sonal com­puter (the Xerox Alto) and the graph­i­cal user inter­face that still dri­ves com­puter usage today.

And Xerox was twice near-dead after they INVENTED this stuff.
