Geek Squad Holding Moment of Silence for Arthur C. Clarke Tonight

Geek Culture

AccAccIn my inbox a few minutes ago came this notice which has supposedly been posted at Geek Squad sites all over the U.S.:

1917 – 2008

Yesterday, the worlds of science and science fiction lost one of their true visionaries, the inestimable Arthur C. Clarke, author of seminal works like 2001: A Space Odyssey and Rendezvous with Rama. Through the writings of Mr. Clarke, all these worlds are yours.

It isn’t easy to overstate Mr. Clarke’s contribution to increasing the public’s fascination with science and technology.  In fact, Mr. Clarke’s imaginative fiction, profoundly insightful futurist thinking and boundless optimism played no small part in shaping the formation of our company, Geek Squad.

Out of the deepest respect for Mr. Clarke, Geek Squad personnel will be observing a moment of silence this evening at 20:01 military time.  Many thanks for your understanding. The sky is filled with one more star tonight.

I’d love to get confirmation on this, because if it’s true, then hats off to to the people of Geek Squad; very classy.
