Anyone that grew up a geek in the late 70’s to early 80’s (ahem) will get the references in this video:
For those of you that are unfamiliar:
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is a comedy science fiction series created by Douglas Adams. Originally a radio comedy broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1978, it was later adapted to other formats, including stage shows, novels, comic book adaptations, a 1981 TV series, a 1984 computer game, and 2005 feature film.
I was most familiar with the video game, which came out about the same time I bought my first computer, the beloved Apple IIc. That might have been in 1986 or so.
Anyway… It is nice to see a new generation of enthusiasts among the current Engineering students.
So long, and thanks for all the fish.
