Sadly the great man is now gone. The man who pretty much created modern sci-fi and predicted much modern technology (including communications satelites), has - at 90 - decided it's time to go.
I repeat... Arthur C Clarke is dead.
"Life is just one big banana. Science fiction allows us all to peel open the reality and discover the yellow truth inside." - Arthur C Clarke
Edited to add - video of Clarke that he made last December.
