Arthur C. Clarke Predicts the Internet & PC… in 1974

By 1974 the seeds had been planted. We had integrated circuits long enough, and they were evolved enough that we could foresee the microprocessor. Moor’s Law was already on, we just didn’t realize it yet.

    And it was ten years later that our family purchased our first IBM PC–with two floppy drives (when floppies were actually floppy!) and no hard drive, which we had installed about a year later. We ended up having that computer upgraded for my daughter to take to college with her in 1991! I had not realized the internet was predicted as early as 1974, the year my son (who is now a supervising computer and electrical engineer with a global company!) was born! Woo-ee–great info here, Heather!
