I just read in CNN that Arthur C. Clarke died at the age of 90 today.

A great writer, 'inventor' of the geostationary communications satellite and space elevator, and all-around amazing guy.

90 orbits around the sun just isn't enough. [cry baby]

That actually brought tears to my eyes when I found out -- he was my favorite S.F. author and an incredible visionary. I had the good fortune to hear him speak at Rice University in the early 70's. I'll have to dig out that cassette tape and listen to what he said.

________________________ Arthur C. Clarke Dead NO NO A THOUSAND TIMES NO. We owe him praise for thinking up much of NASA's missions. If it had not been for him the Govt. would only be building weapons.

This is sad news to all geeks and future-dreamers around the world. And even movie lovers: who do not know the "I can't do that, Dave" with the voice Kubrick gave HAL? And how could that have happened without Clark's creative genius?

A great visionaire has passed; he can't dream for us anymore. We'll have to jump to the task, people! Let's dream for the future, and share those with the many ready to build it! (Or even build it ourselves, if we can.)

Arthur C. Clark, thank you - I hope you have found the final answer to Life's biggest question.

OMG - it's full of stars!

I actually said that when I saw 10.5... part in jest I admit but even so ...
RIP ACC architect of the future (i,e, Now)

Great little essay on Arthur's influence...

A Boy's Life, Guided by the Voice of Cosmic Wonder
By DENNIS OVERBYE
To space fans and perpetual adolescents everywhere Arthur C. Clarke was simply the deceptively dry voice of cosmic wonder.
