Description

This is one essay from the anthology The Anthology at the End of the Universe

Cult favorite for over twenty years, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series has influenced everything from modern day science fiction to the look of today’s computer interfaces. This anthology includes not only a look at the inaccurately named trilogy’s social and technological effects, but an assessment of Vogon poetry, the zen of 42 and why Marvin is actually Jesus Christ.

About the Author

Mike  Byrne

Mike Byrne is an assistant (but hopefully associate by the time you read this) professor of psychology at Rice University in Houston, though he grew up in Minneapolis. He has an advanced love-hate relationship with all forms of technology, particularly computers. Mike’s research is focused on computer simulation of human cognition and performance, in order to better understand how to design technology that more effectively meshes with human capabilities. When not working, Mike spends most of his time with his wife and two boys (ages 1 1/2 and 5 at the time of this writing), neither of whom will hopefully turn out too much like Bart.
