I miss this guy. http://www.douglasadams.com/ What a brilliant author and wit.
My kids rented the The Hitchhiker's Guide on DVD this weekend and it will be nice to enjoy something that spans generations.
I had the rare opportunity to work with Mr. Adams when I was at Digidesign in the early 90s -- he was one of the earliest users of our Audiomedia card for multimedia art projects. He was a very personable and ego-less, had a super sense of humour and a great facination and appreciation for the latest technology.
