Answer Day

I'm unilaterally declaring Sunday, October 10 this year as Answer Day.


Well, it's 10/10/10 and 101010 in binary is 42. And 42 is, of course, the answer to Life, The Universe and Everything.

So, let's celebrate the life and work of Douglas Adams on Answer Day, by rereading his lovely books. I'll be making sure I know where my towel is that Monday.

Will you join me in carrying a towel on your daily routine that Sunday? I'll carry a towel rolled under my arm that day. Say Hello if you see me.

You've still got time to prepare so... Don't Panic.

I'll do as I did while I was in Dresden for an international maths congress: I carried my towel in my bag :)

R.I.P Douglas Adams, if only there were more like him.
