Watch Arthur C. Clarke predict personal computers and the internet in 1974

The minute and a half clip is from Australia’s ABC network, and in it Clarke not only predicts that by 2001 every home will have a compact computer console, but that they’ll all be connected letting users do everything from remote banking, to buying theater tickets. He even predicts how computers will eventually let us telecommute, and as Clarke always was, is optimistic that these new technologies will enrich humanity instead of isolating us.
