Prompt is an experimental email-based community project.

The premise is simple: every day, you get a prompt in your inbox. You get 18 hours to write back with anything you want. The next day, you get a new prompt, but you also get to see what everybody else on the list wrote back.

Not that I want one more extra email in my inbox, but I do find the idea charming.
