Reuters (via The Washington Post) writes a story about the science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke. You’ve got to love a 90-year-old who celebrates his birthday by releasing personal reflections to YouTube. (And wrote 2001: A Space Odyssey.) Also, I knew he had made his home in Sri Lanka for many years, but I didn’t realize all the other things I had in common with him. His triad of birthday wishes: a sign of extraterrestrial life; that the world should adopt clean energy sources; that Sri Lanka should find peace.
Happy birthday, Mr. Clarke. Watch the video:
