A science fictional day

Arthur C. Clarke CBE, SF author, futurist, and all-around paragon of 20th century excellence, died yesterday. Most widely known for his work on 2001: A Space Odyssey, he also proposed telecommunications satellites before they became reality. Spacecraft were named after his works, and he promulgated Clarke's Three Laws, which have generally stood the test of time.

So, I think it to be an appropriate, if sad, occasion to post some SF, a story that I found on Boingboing that combines time travel and wikipedia - which are, of course, two of my favorite pastimes.
