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 Katie's mom, Esther's Mémé, and a Support Engineer. She lives in the Atlanta area with her life partner, Rick, and their critters. She knits, does counted-thread needlework, reads, makes music, plays TTRPGs, and spends too much time online.

  1. One of my all-time favorite sci­ence fic­tion books was ‘Ren­dezvous With Rama’ and the fol­low on books. We have lost a giant mind.
