This is an that interview Adams did not long before his death. I like his speculations here about what technology did to culture in the 20th century. It lines up with the movement of postmodernism, in particular, as thought and representation became fragmented, man unable to reckon with himself.
Alienation, in the midst of all our connectivity, seems to have been what has plagued us. Adams got that. And his is a voice that is sorely missed. So enjoy Towel Day, friends, and celebrate a fun writer, and a series that does tell us a lot about ourselves, both funny and sad at the same time.
Happy Towel Day, all!
