Advantages A superb web community
Disadvantages You don’t get paid for writing
The BBC website is one of the greatest, and H2G2 became a part of it in February 2001, so this is an opinion of H2G2, a website in a website, sorry, I know its annoying when an opinion you read isn’t actually about what you wanted, but H2G2 is probably the greatest community website of all (in my humble opinion, of course).The BBC web site has everything you would want to know about the BBC, its programmes (radio and TV), channels and such. I use it to find out the latest news from my wifes home country of Nigeria, The latest info about Doctor Who and The HitchHikers Guide To The Galaxy, I have bought a CD from the BBC Shop and, well, there's a whole lot more to boot, but as I say this opinion is about H2G2.
Is there anything you need to know?, is there something you’d like to know more about?. You’ve got the questions, H2G2 on the BBC web site (http://www.bbc.co.uk/h2g2/guide/) might just have the answers, even if you don’t have any, its a great place to hang around and talk.
So Who Is Douglas Adams?
Well in 1978 he wrote a radio series called The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, which later became a TV series, a series of books, a computer game, a towel, a comic book, and literary any decade now, a film, he’s also written for Doctor Who, done a book about zoology, stuff with computers and so on.............., he sadly died on the 12 May 2001, at 49, and will be very missed.
What you write are guide entries, pretty much about anything, however this is not a consumer site, what is written is about things rather than about product in particular, such as, if you wanted to know about the film Highlander, your more likely to find an entry about the Highlander franchise, which would include information about all the films, the TV series and so on, rather than the film itself, and its an overall view of the film not a persons personal opinion. The idea is that H2G2 is a work of reference, you use it to find out about things, not an opinion of something.Like wanting a well read and well rated opinion on ciao, on H2G2 what you want is your entry to be edited and become an official part of the guide. The difference between H2G2 and Ciao is that on H2G2, you can’t write about something that’s already got an entry, but there’s ways to get around this, there maybe an entry on Madonna, but not on one of her albums.
