Hey, how did you get to this page??? I'm not involved in the H2G2 community and have only posted something once or
twice. The reason is that I'm too busy with an earlier version of a hitchhikers guide to everything on the web:
Project Galactic Guide. So basically, this is a blatant plug for said Project. I'm an editor for it, and one of the most
prolific authors. Want to read my approx. 60 entries? Try me
<A href="http://www.strw.leidenuniv.nl/~vdmeulen/deeper/Articles/" >http://www.strw.leidenuniv.nl/~vdmeulen/deeper/Articles/">at home</A>
or go to our website at <A href="http://www.galactic-guide.com" >http://www.galactic-guide.com">www.galactic-guide.com</A>.</P>
<P>You might wonder why we haven't given up all together. Well, we still think
we have something to offer: the exchanging of thoughts and article-improvement ideas between author and editor.
It's really a lot of fun, and you get to improve your skills. Of course,
we have peer review as well. Check out our newsgroup: alt.galactic-guide.</P>
Hey, this gets me thinking... If you find that the article that you
submitted to the H2G2 editors gets refused, there are several options.
One is that you can guess why it was refused, and then you rewrite and
resubmit it. Second is that you try to get a discussion going with
other field researchers to find out what could be improved. Third is
to submit it to PGG. Of course we also have standards that we want to
live up to, and we mention them in the FAQ and in the newsgroup, but
if you post your article in the newsgroup for peer review (or you
mail it to an editor, but we prefer you try the peer review stuff
first), you'll get a lot of comments of what may be wrong with the
article, and some suggestions on how to improve it. You choose...</P>
So much for the plug. I hope you have a good time here, and come visit
us now and then. Bye!</P>
<P>I almost forgot: I'm Roel van der Meulen (try to pronounce <i>that</i>!), Dutch, and for
the last 10 years been active in Astronomy, getting a masters
and trying to get my PhD, but due to a break-down I've given up on that.
I'm going to do something in the website-development business, but who
knows what else might come along. My hobbies are indoor 5-a-side football and
aikido. And of course working for PGG. You can find more to read on
<A href="http://www.strw.leidenuniv.nl/~vdmeulen/" >http://www.strw.leidenuniv.nl/~vdmeulen/">my home page</A> which won a prize from the Centre National de Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and UNESCO!</P> </BODY>

"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."
