Arthur C. Clarke's Last Message to Earth

From Wired Science:
Sir Arthur C. Clarke, legendary science fiction writer, has passed away at age 90. This video was his last message to the world.

It was uploaded to YouTube in December, and displays his enduring optimism -- despite the dark cloud of failing health.

Clarke said that if he was granted three wishes, he would want: proof of extra terrestrial life, freedom from dependence on oil, and an end to the civil war in Sri Lanka. Although he has had a diverse career in underwater exploration, space and science promotion, and communications technology the aging legend said that he would most like to be remembered as a writer.
