e42 – Douglas Adams and the Mac

Douglas Adams is best known as the author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, but he was also a huge fan of the Macintosh. We discuss his many Macs, interactive fiction, and his extremely astute vision of the future of technology, both fictional and real.

“I love deadlines, I love the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.”

I wrote an ad for Apple Computer: 'Macintosh - We might not get everything right, but at least we knew the century was going to end.'
