Arthur C. Clarke has died at the age of 90. I first discovered his books in 1974, aged 8. Everyone's going on about how close and how far some of his predictions were, but they're missing the point. His predictions weren't doom-laden, as has become so popular, but full of optimism.
I hope they get the gravestone right. A large black slab, with the ratios 1:4:9.
