Latest comment: He was pretty much spot on, but was wrong about conducting business from Tahiti in 50 years' time. 25 years after this programme, HE was doing everything from a big laptop in Sri Lanka. Also, he mentioned that the world would shrink to a point due to better communications: may I suggest that a lot of the comms have gone beyond that, and are completely pointless...

Arthur C. was right about where communication was going, but he over estimated how unmotivated we would be in using the technology. People would rather text each other about stupid stuff than go to the moon.
