Bigging Up Adams

Nice present from AB this morning, for Tribute Island [SLURL]. A sperm whale and petunias for our mutual childhood hero, Douglas Adams. Well worth a look.

This drove me to the site to see what was already there, and horror of horrors there was bugger all. Jack. Nada. Bupkiss.

I'm letting the geek-flag fly here and summoning the troops.

Please, if you can, write something for Douglas. He deserves it. He changed sci-fi and the mindset of a billion generation Xers. There's modern day kids TV presenters on the site with 400 tributes, and SFA for the man who brought us Hitchhikers, Doctor Who, Monty Python, and just about most cool British things in the 80's that weren't The Young Ones or Spitting Image. That's just plain wrong.

Surely the guy deserves a few kind words of posthumous thanks, even if we ALL just chat "Zaglabor astragard, Hootrimansion Bambriar", which actaully isn't a bad idea :-)

Give it a Digg too, if ya like ;-)
