Neil Gaiman (author extraordinaire, patron saint of this writing podcast) was asked to give the Douglas Adams Memorial lecture this year. A good portion of the lengthy, wonderful lecture is about discussing the nature of stories, their lasting qualities, and achieving a kind of immortality. This lecture is well worth your time if you have any interest in storytelling, Douglas Adams, writing, or thinking creatively. Please give it a watch and donate to Save the Rhino if you can. It's a great cause that was near and dear to Douglas Adams' heart.
