I love the fact Clarke used the term "hack" in 1956.



I'd just like to double-check that you and others realise that there are multiple definitions for the word "hack," some originating from far before the 1950s ;)

chop: cut with a hacking tool

cut away; "he hacked his way through the forest"

a mediocre and disdained writer

etc.
