RIP Sir Clive

Very sad news. The Spectrum was such a huge part of my youth and without Clive's drive to create a computer which the average family could afford, it's likely I would have grown up without the joy of video games.


Clive Sinclair introduced the fun and possibilities of computing to a generation of British school kids, his legacy is assured. Rest in peace sir.

A real shame, such a legend. The spectrum was the first computer I ever owned and I can't understate the effect it had me and my life. Likely more influential than anything else in getting me to where I was today. Such a huge part of my life growing up, and even now.

I'm sad to hear a true British computing pioneer has left us. He did some great work.


I think I'm more in love with the romanticism of what he achieved than the man himself, but it's difficult to separate the two. 


All our heroes are built on romanticism and nostalgia, so he is no less worthy than my favourite popstars from the 80s.


Rest in peace, Clive Sinclair.
