It’s still very much a concept, and not something being described as a business venture, but author / designer Douglas Coupland is hoping that his new “V-Pole” design will serve as something of a model for cities looking to build out their technology infrastructure. As you can see, it’s a rather nondescript (albeit brightly-colored) pole on the outside, but Coupland sees the inside being packed with an array of the latest technology, including Alcatel-Lucent lightRadios for wireless connectivity (both WiFi and cellular), an LED street light on top, and connections to nearby wireless charging stations for electric vehicles. As for the “V” in the name, that stands for Coupland’s home city of Vancouver, which he sees as a natural fit for the pole — something the city’s mayor apparently agrees with.

Question by chocolahoma: Douglas Adams “HitchHiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”?
Is HHGTG simply an adaptation of “The Wizard of Oz?”
I can spot many elements that seem parallel. The “yellow brick road” translates into the startship “Heart of Gold”, for example.
The Tin Man morphs into “Marvin the Paranoid Android” (He’s not looking for a heart, he just want to get replacements for the diodes down his left side…)
Aurthur dent plays Dorothy’s role (just wants to go home)
Trillian is the opposite of the scarecrow. She’s got a degree in Astrophysics, but can’t find a job. (she was “on the dole” on Earth)
Of course Zaphod also plays the part of the scarecrow. He seeks knowkledge about the true ruler of the galaxy.
Does anyone see any other parallels to OZ?
The Wizard would be the idiot that lives in the shack who really rules the galaxy. Also a twist on the OZ themes.
I have read, and reread all of the book in the series many times.
I am not criticising the work– I would never use the word “derivative” to describe a work I think of as genius.
Also, not all adaptations must have every single element from the original. Also, thast why I am asking this. To ask others to help me identify other parallels.
Yun the Vogons are clearly the flying monkeys/and or the witch’s guard. The witch? Thats Gag Halfrunt, Zaphod’s personal brain care specialist. He’s secretly behind the destructionof Earth, and orders the Vogons to fire on the only survivors…
Answer by Jan Stolz
I haven’t read it, but its quite possible Oz was the inspiration of Hitchhiker. Look at the new movie “I Am Legend.” Then go rent 1960′s movie “The Omega Man” with Charlton Heston. Its just an updated rewrite. Hitchhiker might be the same.

On December 9, 1968, Douglas C. Engelbart and the group of 17 researchers working with him in the Augmentation Research Center at Stanford Research Institute in Menlo Park, CA, presented a 90-minute live public demonstration of the online system, NLS, they had been working on since 1962. The public presentation was a session in the of the Fall Joint Computer Conference held at the Convention Center in San Francisco, and it was attended by about 1000 computer professionals. This was the public debut of the computer mouse. But the mouse was only one of many innovations demonstrated that day, including hypertext, object addressing and dynamic file linking, as well as shared-screen collaboration involving two persons at different sites communicating over a network with audio and video interface.
