Yesterday I was notified of the passing of Arthur C. Clarke by my Twitter feed.
The link from Twitter sent me to his Wikipedia page.
For me, yesterday was March 18th. According to Wikipedia he had died on March 19th. So from my perspespective he died in the future. The screen shot below is from Wikipedia.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Things are getting wacky.
Unless where he died it was 3/19? I think I read he died in Sri Lanka…
You are absolutely right. He did die i Sri Lanka. I was just struck by the notion that we are that connected to information that wikipedia content from the ‘future’ is available to me in the ‘past’. It’s only a matter of a few hours, but I found it to be one of those ‘aha’ moments. 🙂
