Hours of Time on the Telephone Line,
Talkin' 'Bout Things to Come
We talk, don't we?
We talk on our mobiles. We chat online. Some of us (blush) yell at the TV screen. We even occasionally look up from our electronic devices and talk to the person in the room with us – what a concept, wonder if we could market that? We talk about anything and everything. We are the chatting species.
A lot of what we talk about ends up on h2g2. This is good. Whether the result of all that talking is a witty conversation, a drawing, painting, or photo, or a poem, story or essay, we've added to the h2g2 body of knowledge.
Oh, and we've given other people something to talk about.
This issue is dedicated to all you h2g2 chatters out there. Clicking on the headers will take you to some of Ask's conversations. You know Ask: you, er, ask a question and see who answers. Try these questions on for size.
All this talk gets reported. No, not by Homeland Security (we worry about what Homeland Security thinks of 2legs), but by the Quote of the Day folk. This week, Geggs brings us our first monthly report on the state of the QotD. Read and enjoy.
The Post is pleased to welcome Effers, who has contributed the results of some communicating she did Down Under. Bel's been communicating in Blogland, as well, and Tavaron has been communicating with the gamers. Once again, h2g2ers boldly go. Willem's gone out and got us a cuckoo to admire – we're not speciesist – and Awix has been exploring at the cinema. (He travels much in Oxford.)
As usual, some of us are communicating with the voices in our heads. (Check out the artwork.) If what you read moves you to talk some more, you can leave a comment. If it moves you to commit poetry, art, or writing of your own, send us a submission.
Enjoy your week, and keep talking. We're listening.
