Arthur C. Clarke

from singularityblog.com - A video of a futurist from 1964 giving his predictions of what was to come - some came true - some have not yet (but are totally sci-fi and awesome, I think his pets would be kind of like an Android Chimp. Cool.). This proves that we can imagine a better future and create it, even if it sounds impossible. The singularity is coming.
