Thank you for this. Clarke was a hero of my childhood--I guess I thought, like a child, that he'd live forever. What a life!

Risking a lengthy discussion, I'd like to replace "Advanced technology" with "Applied knowledge" in this Venn diagram AND in the actual law.

Fantastic..that law is in my email sig at work and it has always summed up my feelings about technology.

Thanks for a brilliant (again) index!
