Goodbye Douglas

0 Conversations

So long and thanks...

Douglas Adams had a great idea back in 1971 - that someone should create a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

In the past 30 years, that idea took a lot of forms - radio, print, television, comupter game, and most recently in web-based form. That's why we are all here at h2g2. To help him make that web-based form of the Guide a reality.

It has been a privilege and an honour for me to help make part of Douglas' vision come to life.

I have made a lot of online friends here at h2g2. And more importantly, I have learned a lot here - probably much more than the others here have learned from me.

For that, and for enjoyment I have received from Douglas' works, I owe him a debt of gratitude.

Thank you Douglas and goodbye.

"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a wholly remarkable book. It has been compiled and recompiled many times and under many different editorships. It contains contributions from countless numbers of travellers and researchers."
