English: IN 1974 Arthur C. Clarke told the ABC that every household in 2001 will have a computer console and be connected all over the world. (Note that the system described here—a dumb terminal connected to a central computer for all information services—is closer to a late-1970s videotex system than the modern Internet and World Wide Web.)
