Presumably, Adams’ Macs are a bit speedier than Deep Thought. The writer uses Macs to experiment with interactive fiction and computer games like the Starship Titanic he created. These days, Adams spends his time as “chief fantasist” at an online entertainment company, The Digital Village, and working on “the 137th rewrite of
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
movie screenplay, an all new novel, and a new secret project.”
Q: Which piece of Mac-related paraphernalia can’t you do without?
The Cinema Display. It is a stupendous piece of kit. I use Final Draft and Inspiration a lot. And Microsoft Word, I suppose. Also, iMovie has been a bit of a revelation for me, and I’m working my way up the nursery slopes of Final Cut Pro.
Q: What was it like making your first iMovie, Rockstar, featured on the AppleMasters Web site?
I loved it. I’ve done a bunch of iMovies since then as well. In fact, I’m going to have to scrub that software off my machine soon, or I’ll have too much fun and not do enough work.
