What is H2G2?

H2G2 is a constantly expanding, user-generated guide to life, the universe and everything. The site was founded in 1999 by Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy author Douglas Adams and Movie Producer Robbie Stamp.

Anyone can write for H2G2 – which already has thousands of Entries on a range of subjects, from Aardvarks to ZombiesPolonium to Pooh Sticks, and Absolute Zero to Hilbert's Infinite Hotel. Central to the site are the Approved Entries, articles written by individual users, with a little help from the H2G2 community, which are checked and sanctioned by theH2G2 Editors. The result is a living, breathing guide that is constantly being added to, updated and revised by the people who use it. (There is more information on how to contribute to H2G2 in the section entitled, appropriately enough, How to Contribute.)
