Cool People I'd Like to Meet

(What a frigging honour, I know)

  1. Douglas Hofstadter
    Author of Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid Pure Genius. This guy is sharp as a tack, funny as a plastic yellow goat, and is possibly one of the greatest minds of this century.
  2. Douglas Adams
    Maybe I just have a thing for authors whose names are Douglas, but this hoopy frood is even funnier than a plastic yellow goat. His Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy series is without rival. And don't get me started on the Meaning of Liff...
    Trillian would be a good name for a tree, don't you think?
  3. Norm MacDonald
    Ah, he was no doubt, the best news anchor Saturday Night Live has ever seen. Sadly, he was fired because he would not let us forget that Germans love David Hasselhoff, OJ is a murderor, and Michael Jackson is a homosexual pedophile. Norm's just such a cool smart-ass.
  4. Tom Murphy 7
    This dude is a lot like me, only cooler. He's possibly more insane than I am, and has more free time than I do to express it. I used to think I had an enourmous web site until I discovered Tom 7's HTML portfolio. Make sure you check out His Home Page and of course
  5. Richard D. James
    Aphex Twin, Polygon Window, The Diceman. Just what in in the name of Bob is going through this guy's head? I'd like to know. I hear he goes weeks without sleeping. Cool, no? I'd try it too if I didn't have to work all the time...
