Arthur C. Clarke

I've tried starting this post 4 different times. I want to say something clever about robots and AI computers, but it's all gonna seem so trite at the moment. I watch 2001 like fundamentalists read the bible. I watched a lot of his science shows, most of them on underwater exploration and not outer space.
Anyway, Arthur C. Clarke passed away today at the age of 90. Since I'm not good with time and dates, it's really messing me up that news reports said he died on the 19th. Because of the time difference between here and Sri Lanka, my first thought was that Clarke was so fucking awesome he got to die in the future.
There's so much more I feel like I should say, but I'd rather just go home and watch 2001.
