Arthur C. Clarke Predicts the Internet & PC in 1974

In 1974, the futurist/science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke described for Jonathan, a little boy about five years old, what his life will look like in 2001. And boy did he get it right. Of course, these thoughts weren’t particularly new for Clarke. A decade earlier, in 1964, he predicted pretty much the same thing.
