Interesting post and question raised by Drew McManus in is blog Adaptistration. In this interview from the ABC in 1974, Arthur C. Clarke was certainly prescient, albeit an unabashed enthusiast.
He does describe a more democratic business model and adds a then utopian dream of SOHO or satellite working. Some of it does not seem so far fetched 37 years on?
Like Drew, I am sure that monopolies/duopolies and intermediaries imposing legal barriers that restrain trade were not part of Arthur C. Clarke’s vision.
Wouldn’t you just have loved to pull an iPhone out of your pocket and see the look on his face?!
