Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

First start

Today I’ve worked through the first two chapters of

For now I’m really impressed esp. with the quality of this tutorial. It’s logically structured and also helps people who come from procedural and object oriented languages like C or Java with enough references to understand the (at least for me unusual) functional concepts behind Objective CAML.

Let’s see what tomorrow might bring :-)

Functional languages

It’s like a phobia for me. A few years ago I had to write some progs in Lisp and Prolog and really started to hate Prolog simply because I couldn’t get used to this way of programming. Lisp was a little bit better but not much.

Next semester I will have to make another course focusing on Prolog which will perhaps change this phobia. As an addition to this I also want to give OCaml a try simply because the whole idea of mixing functional and oo languages sounds very interesting :-)
