Q: What is the point of Deep Thought?
A: There is not necessarily a clear objective, other than sharing thoughts and essays we’ve written. We generally hope to inspire curiosity and intrigue.
Q: Why is your name Deep Thought?
A: Well, we had some plans to play off on Douglas Adams’s “The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy,” which fell through. There’s a supercomputer in the work who declares that the answer to “Life, the Universe, and Everything” is “42.” That supercomputer’s name is Deep Thought.
