Ray Bradbury Does Not Compute

Stan Freberg here. One of the famous people who will not be online anytime soon is sci-fi writer Ray Bradbury, so, don't try to send him any e-mail. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here. The man I consider one of my best friends is sci-fi legend Ray Bradbury. We've been best buddies for about 35 years now.

Both of us have spoken to audiences at IBM many times, and once they gave Ray, who writes on an IBM Wheelwriter electric typewriter, an IBM computer.

After trying to write on it for a week, he finally gave it to one of his daughters, and went back to his old faithful electric typewriter.

I happen to write on a Macintosh, and have tried to talk him into a computer. Nothing doing. In spite of writing on the future, Ray doesn't compute.

Not knowing this, Microsoft's Bill Gates recently asked Ray if he could help him with his computer needs.

"Bill," said Ray, "I don't do 'Windows'."
