Cool People I'd Like to Meet
(What a frigging honour, I know)
- 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
- 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?
- 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.
- 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 snoot.com
- 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...
