R.I.P. Arthur C. Clarke

We lost another great writer and thinker today. CNN seems to be updating their story on his death by the minute. There’s no controversy, but from the first version or two, you’d think the only thing the man had ever done of note was co-writing the screenplay for 2001: A Space Odyssey.

I know that he came up with more than just the idea of communications satellites, but at this very moment, I can’t remember his other non-fiction contributions to the world. I’m sad, but 90 years is a good, long run.

Cyn is Rick's wife, Katie's Mom, and Esther & Oliver's Mémé. She's also a professional geek, avid reader, fledgling coder, enthusiastic gamer (TTRPGs), occasional singer, and devoted stitcher.

One thought on “R.I.P. Arthur C. Clarke
