I wish I could remember where I found the link to this, so I could give that blogger proper credit. Alas, I cannot, but that shouldn't stop you from enjoying this Bill Moyers interview with Isaac Asimov from 1988. I would say that Isaac Asimov is the man I most credit with introducing me to the love of science and science fiction, and second only to my mom in imbuing me with the love of reading and learning. I especially enjoyed his prediction that someday children would learn by computers hooked up to libraries that would give them access to the vast store of human knowledge. If only he had lived long to see that already, half of that prediction has come true.
