Sir Clive Sinclair is something of a hero to me, and I suspect a lot of other UK computer users in their 30's and older. He more or less single handedly created the UK home computer market.

In the interview below Sir Clive discusses many issues: His view of the internet, the future of electric vehicles, flying cars, and the development of the computer. It's a typically eclectic mix of ideas, with ambitious schemes side by side with very perceptive comments on the current state of technology. An edited version of the interview below will appear on iPM this Saturday, below is the source material - largely unedited.

In the article we reference a speech before congress. To clarify that was the 1984 speech before the Congressional Clearing House on the Future. I do recommend reading it. If you find any of Sir Clive's ideas far fetched, reflect on how many in this speech are now reality.
