Douglas Adams died this weekend.

Douglas Adams

died this weekend. Shocked, astonished and bewildered. A few of my friends used to work for him at his company The Digital Village.

I got to meet him
once. He generously listened to my drunken ramblings about life, the
universe and everything, and thanked me when I told him that he had
taught me that the rational can create as much wonder as the magical.

As a teenager reading his books and watching the prescient TV series,
the threat of being put on the Golgafringan ‘B’ Ark made me pursue
science, engineering and art equally – leading me to architecture
instead of graphic design.

As someone in this list of tributes says: “you changed my life – I’ll never forgive you for that”
