Just a few great Douglas Adams links

In the beginning the universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

There is a theory which states that if anybody ever discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

Okay, on with some links. First, his page: http://www.douglasadams.com/

Artificial god speech to Biota: http://www.biota.org/people/douglasadams/

His "Community" Page that the BBC now owns: http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2

Hyperland: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7190175107515525470

Let me know if there are any particularly appropriate links that I should post. And of course, feel free to discuss his works of fiction as well!

Wonder if Sylvia Browne or John Edwards uses an answering machine like the one Dirk listened to?

Fans of Douglas Adams, I'm trying to track down online for you all a video of DNA discussing ideas about the internet before it was a reality.

I watched it the other week and thought it utterly fascinating to here him discuss what are essentially notions of hypertext and web browsers before they were a reality.

Can't find the link at the minute but am searching for it, will be back with as soon as I do, and maybe it'll be an early christmas present!

RH.

I had to read that once twice before I 'got' it.

Same actually with the holisitic detective agency.

I think mostly it was the age I began them at, and a better understanding of what the holistic method meant and some of the jokes making more sense rather than just being weird-funny. ;-)

Clive, it's an honour to have you part of this community as well. If you have any thoughts, please let me know and I'll do what I can to implement them.
