Isaac Asimov (born in Petrovici in the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic) was an American author and professor of biochemistry at Boston University, best known for his works of science fiction and for his popular science books. Asimov was one of the most prolific writers of all time, having written or edited more than 500 books and an estimated 9,000 letters. Isaac Asimov is widely considered a master of science fiction. Asimov's most famous work is the Foundation Series; his other major series are the Galactic Empire series and the Robot series, both of which he later tied into the same fictional universe as the Foundation Series to create a unified "future history" for his stories.
Our school's library blog has posted an Asimov's interview, dated back in 1988, for an American TV programme presented by Bill Moyers "The World of Ideas", where Isaac clearly predicts the impact of the Internet on learning 23 years before! As the interview is in English, with Spanish subtitles, we've considered it interesting to post it here, too.
