Wikipedia will become the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

After thinking about the way characters in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
use “The Guide” to look up information, and the way it seems to get edited… I realized that Wikipedia + Tablet Computer = The Real World’s Hitchhiker’s Guide to Galaxy…

One day, all of those wiki articles are going to come in handy when trying to figure out what day an old TV or Radio show will broadcast on a nearby galaxy. We assume, of course, that this will only be practical if displace ourselves through space faster than the light from the original broadcast travels.


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 books, a 1981 TV series, a 1984 computer game, and 2005 feature film.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is a fictional electronic guide book ….
The Guide serves as “the standard repository for all knowledge and wisdom” for many members of the series’ galaxy-spanning civilization.
