I was there too. After the initial annoyance that he was simply reading out every single word of every bullet point that he put on the overhead projector, his talk was very enjoyable, and had some cracking facts in it that I'd not heard before, despite being an avid reader of his work.

Th Douglas Adams Memorial Lectures are held each year around Douglas's birthday, and are a chance for any clear-thinking person to share their knowledge and enthusiasm about the way the world works, especially in the areas of science and technology.

I liked John Lloyd's nose joke. He'd been working on that for a while. :-)
