    Question for the 'new robots': Do you plan to monetize the site in some way, and if so, how?

    Does anyone know the story behind the re-emergence of 43Things? Who are the developers and do they have any connection with the original robot co-op?

      @kuntzman Is there a way to report spam? It didn't take too long for them to show up.

      @kuntzman Sweet! Looking good so far! Love the new site - enough like the old to feel like home, but with fresh new things, too.

      @kuntzman well you have done a good job, it looks like lots of time or $ went into it, in particular I was impressed by the video. BTW any of yall in the Asheville NC area? I recently saw a graffitti wall that looked just like the chalkboard 'I want to ___' that was on the page a while ago, possibly on Lexington

    I joined the original 43T site I believe in late October of 2005. I even remember what I was searching for when I stumbled across the site, and signing up was a touch and go decision as I was far from comfortable with an online presence back then. Somehow the way the site was designed and the community of souls on there had a hugely energising effect on me and brought out a side of me that doesn't show itself very often (in fact I expect it never will again). I took on a somewhat provocative (and probably, to some, quite annoying) persona and had a lot of fun on the site for a few months before my activity died off. I don't know if I really utilised the site for its intended purpose particularly well (namely goal setting). Hopefully I'll make a better job of it this time around. :-)

    Back then my life was about to change significantly, as I'd already decided to leave my job in early 2006. Joining 43T also involved me in a bit of an unplanned adventure in 2006 which possibly slightly derailed my plans for my 'year off' (which ended up being more like three years). Since then life has taken a lot more unexpected twists, some welcome, some not so welcome (or at least they didn't seem very welcome at the time).

    I can talk about my journey from 2006 to the present, if anyone is interested. I really posted this goal in the hope that other people would join me and tell their story of what happened to them since the 'old days'.

      @superbligh  yes I think it would be interesting. 2006 was a pivotal time in my life and I cannot believe how much my life has changed since then. I would love to hear more of your story, and I am certain that I am not alone.

    It's been a tough winter for me as I seem to have been plagued by a string of colds and coughs for months on end. This has sapped my energy and had a drastically adverse effect on my productivity, especially at work. What's more, I know my poor results haven't gone unnoticed and I feel like I've been cashing in on my previous good reputation and performance.

    I'm sure being under the weather is self-perpetuating for me as my low energy levels generate cravings for unhealthy, sugary snacks, which ultimately lead to me feeling even worse.

    At last I seem to be coming through these doldrums and I'm starting to get my mojo back. I constantly have to combat my lamentable propensity to get distracted, both by myself and by outside influences. The mental gratification of a good day's work is worth effort required to stay focused on the job at hand, whether at work or elsewhere.

    I think maybe I'll start giving myself a productivity grade (0 to 10) at the end of each week, as a means of tracking progress on this goal. From now on, downtime is allowed, but only as a reward for hard work!

You can type any date in plain English like in 3 weeks or next month.
You can also type in recurring due date like every day, every week and every month.
