I recently discovered TweetBrain - a complementary tool to Twitter. It allows you to post a question and receive answers from fellow tweeters. Others can vote on the answers given and finally you can choose what you consider to be the best answer.

To test the system out I posted the question Does anyone know the meaning of life, the universe and everything? I received 38 replies before closing the session. Not too surprisingly the answer 42 proved popular!

My choice? Well I went for an answer submitted by Marc Scrivener from Viktor Frankl from his book Mans Search for Meaning that has long been my favorite.
Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.

But take a look ... which is your favorite? And oh yes and TweetBrain seems quite a useful little tool.
