"I saw '2001' when I was 14 at the Cinemascope big-screen McVickers theater in downtown Chicago. I was blown away. It fed my curiosity about space, computers, film, astronomy, special effects, classical music, evolution, alien travel, drugs, communication, the future."
   --Russ Mitchell, Wired Managing Editor
