Looking around Wikipedia I found this priceless video of his (last) 90th birthday (can't be embedded)
YouTube - Sir Arthur C Clarke 90th Birthday reflections
The collected quotes he's got on wikiquotes are also pretty good, but of course, I'd have to keep this one:

Electronic Tutors (1980)

I also liked the following:

The Exploration of Space (1951), p. 111
Which allows me to seamlessly proceed to cheer at
Google Shoots For The Moon - Forbes.com
"[...]One bold ambition of the project: using lunar materials to make solar
power collectors that can generate carbon-free energy, which is then
transmitted to the Earth. [...]"
When Internet Moguls decide to go to the Moon, anything is possible... I think Clarke would like that.
