Last night I was working, but then I had to rest, and quite randomly I found this masterpiece: Douglas Adams, days before his death, in one of the most interesting talks I’ve ever watched.

I spent about 35 minutes collecting the following links, thoughts, etc. You can spend about 5 minutes to read them, and eventually much more to dig the details… But you would have saved 30 minutes… Given that you trust my filtering skills 🙂 Please remember that: opinions here are personal, and that linking to resources doesn’t necessary mean that I agree with the content.
