In 1974, Arthur C. Clarke was the science fiction writer who teamed with filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, to give the world the break–through film: 2001: A Space Odyssey . Arthur C. Clarke is standing inside one of those huge computer centers that held the massive machines of the day. He’s joined by an Australian television reporter, and the reporter‘s son, who’s about 5 years old. As those massive machines hum in the background, the reporter looks down at his son and asks Clarke what the boy’s life will be like in, yes, the year 2001. Clarke gives an uncanny prediction of the PC and the Internet, a good 20 years before they were invented.
