New Online Interactive Guide has introduced a new section to the site... a completely Hitchhiker-edited online version of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. Granted, it's not an entirely original idea, but it looks good, and you don't need to login to help update the guide because it's setup as a wiki. (Once there, I recommend that you click the "Open the guide in a new window" link, as it is considerably more convenient to use in it's own window.)

The Duke of Dunstable (owner of The Douglas Adams Continuum) reports that original movie props are being auctioned for charity.

Also of note is the opening of the "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy Exhibition" (previously mentioned in this news blog) at London's Science Museum, where they bring you an immersive experience complete with Vogons, the Heart of Gold, etc., and will, no doubt, take a look at the science behind the story. They also note that "Lost tickets will only be replaced with orders signed in triplicate, sent in, sent back, queried, lost, found, subjected to public inquiry, lost again, and finally buried in soft peat and recycled as firelighters." Cute.

Other than that, there's not a whole lot going on in the world of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. The movie is still #1 at the Box Office, and the onslaught of articles and reviews have pretty much all been published. The folks involved with the film are, no doubt, taking a much-needed break from the media, but once things get moving again, I'll be ready to present it to you here.
