Did You Know Who Invented Cut/Copy and Paste?
Can you imagine a life where you have to re-type the entire text word to word when needed? No, it's not practically possible to define the use of 'copy paste' command in our lives these days..!

Larry Tesler was born on April 24, 1945. He is a computer scientist who works in the field of human computer interaction. Tesler has worked at Xerox PARC, Apple, Amazon, and Yahoo..!
Tesler has a strong preference for modeless software, in which a user's action has a consistent effect, rather than changing its meaning depending on previous actions, as in the vi text editor.

Previously, most editors used the keyboard to enter text or to issue commands, depending on the current mode.

Along with others, he has also been using the phrase "Don't Mode Me In" for years, as a rally cry to eliminate or reduce modes.
