Legendary Writer Ray Bradbury Dies At Age 91

Science Fiction Legend Ray Bradbury dies at age 91 in Los Angeles after lengthy illness during a rare Transit of Venus on June 5th. A YouTube video (at left) is a relatively early biography in 1963 of Bradbury and it provides nostalgic insight into a still vigorous writer. The half-hour bio includes frames of key punch cards for younger audience who've never seen them. Bradbury is admired for being his own man, who shared feelings about technology in a late 2011 BBC News article: "'We have too many cellphones. We've got too many internets. We have got to get rid of those machines. We have too many machines now.'" You may also enjoy as a bonus, "Dial Double Zero", a short story about intelligence within a telephone system, included in above video - please RIP Ray Bradbury.
