Upcoming and Proposed Meets
The London Summer Meet!!!
Yes, it's that time of year again (or at least it will be) - it's The Great, Marvelous, exotically spiffing, H2G2 London Summer Meet 20041! The date is now confirmed as 10th July. It looks as if the afternoon (from around 1pm) will, once more, be spent in Hyde Park for picnicking and games or at a local watering hole for the diehard drinkers. The evening venue is still being debated. More details can be found here or just sign-up and join the other 54 (or so) would-be attendants.
Other Potential Meets to Keep an Eye On!!!
The First Great Birmingham Pit-Stop
Running on Friday 9th July in conjunction with the London Summer Meet this is for all those wanting a pre-meet outside the big smoke. More details can be found at This thread.
No firm dates as yet for these and no pages set up but discussions about these proposed Meets can be found at the following (rather quiet) threads:
Return of the Deuchars? - postponed
The South West
The purpose of this Entry is to provide a Zone for Researchers to inform each other of their free time and movements so that they can hopefully find out when and where all or some of them can meet up in the future with the minimum of inconvenience to enjoy each other's company out there in the real world.
Whatever else you do this week, be sure to drop along to Clear Sign to read about John Ridgeway and team who are fighting to save the albatross. Easy links are provided to all the information and the petition which we hope you will all sign.
The Hitchhikers' Movie
Yes, it is really happening at last and yes they have started filming! Read An Interview with Garth Jennings and Nick Goldsmith to find out more.
Did you know that Douglas Adams' computer was recently sold on ebay and is reputed to still hold many files of unpublished material? If not, then you haven't visited the Douglas Adams Continuum site set up by Duke of Dunstable.
The We Didn't Start The Fire compilation entry is now nearing completion and this has generated so much interest that we not only see more
projects proposed in the Collaborative Writing Workshop but also the return of 'The Topic of the Week'.
This week the subject is What The Romans Did for Us?. You know about the aqueducts, the perfectly straight roads and that big wall they built to keep out the Scots. You've heard of the mad Emperors, like the one who made his horse a senator. Rome ruled most of the ancient world at one time, but what has that done for you lately? Drop by and let h2g2 know.
