Arthur C. Clarke's farewell message

Sir Arthur C. Clarke passed away yesterday at 90. I well remember reading Childhood's End for the first time, and will never, ever forget that first amazing time I saw 2001: A Space Odyssey. This last video message was recorded for his 90th birthday and is a reflection on his life, and his hopes for the future of our world. He was a remarkable man, and lived to see many of things he first wrote about as science fiction become reality.


Telephone tip

GOOG411 is great for saving money when you need phone numbers and/or addresses. You just call 1-800-GOOG-411 (free) instead of 411 (usually $1.50 and up per call). Especially useful for cellphone users. I programed the number in my phone and named it "info." Check out their video on it -- funny. Another free service from Google.

It Made Me Laugh

For those of you who don't know, I live in Berkeley and used to work at the BPL until I left to go with Infopeople. I love my library and am so proud of them for this foray into our multimedia and interactive world. It's imbedded in the BPL website but I think you should go directly to Berkeley Public Library, An Intimate Portrait on YouTube so you can see the comments folks have left. It's a simple little video giving some useful information about the library... but... it's funny!!!
