Michael Crichton (1942 – 2008)

Michael Crichton, the well known writer, died of cancer a few days ago.  Several of his books such as The Andromeda Strain and Jurassic Park not only sold well but went on to become major movies as well.

I have not read any of his books and seen only a few of the movies based on them but for some time I have been reading his non-fiction writings on his website and have found a great deal of sense in them.

Here is a speech he gave at the National Press Club in Washington D.C.  It is as relevant today as it was when he gave it a few years ago:
