    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 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

      Thanks @ahorrasi , 馃檪 lots of time for sure... The 2017 video is self made, done with Adobe Premiere and pieces of footage from Shutterstock. The black board from the coming soon page was inspired by BeforeIDie and they do have a board in Asheville, check it out, maybe thats the one you saw - http://beforeidie.cc/site/asheville/

    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'.

    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!
