Blawg Review #213 is one week from today, on May 25, 2009. Kevin Thompson at Cyberlaw Central says he needs a picture of you with a towel for his theme; who picks these hosts?!
Seriously, though, Towel Day is a great way to celebrate the life of Douglas Adams, and not just the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series he’s most famous for.And come back on Monday to read Blawg Review #213 on Towel Day at Cyberlaw Central, where quite a number of law bloggers (including this anonymous editor) will have posted photos of themselves with towels!
Douglas was an environmentalist as well, one of his more interesting endeavors was writing the book Last Chance to See, a book about the search for some of the rarest and most endangered species on Earth.
It’s a wonderful book, which, like Hitchhikers, was also a radio show.
Douglas also wrote much more, including several episodes of the classic show Doctor Who, two books in a series about the holistic detective Dirk Gently, the quasi-dictionary The Meaning of Liff, the computer game Bureaucracy, and Starship Titanic.
So, carry your towel on May 25th as any savvy hitchhiker would (or, in correct lingo, as a hoopy frood would), and honor a man who brought much laughter and joy into the world.
