Did this happen at all?
Stephanie, I applaud your initiative in the first place for trying to take this up.
But I know for me, that it is unlikely that I will ever bother with this idea again. I was excited the first time ‘round, but now have become too skeptical of any attempt to even consider it. The critical mass has gone. Our time has passed. For this to happen, I think it will take a new group of people on a completely different forum.
Either that, or a great leader.
And now the guy who started it all has removed himself from 43 Things. So what’s the point? Well, it was fun thinking about it anyways…........
Dunno if this is gonna eventuate any time soooon. I’m starting to lose my nerve. Maybe the day before or the day of my birthday? May 12th?
Just wondering if there are any poll results? Or do you think we should start this goal over? I’m sure there are plenty of people still interested…
too many indians and no chief.
I don’t mean to flame you, but there are some valid points here.
I was ready and had my family of five ready to turn up last Thursday. All I needed was a ‘Let’s do it!’ and we would have been there. I am sure that there are plenty of others here in the same boat.
I found myself asking ‘What happened?’ and the first thing we hear from you is about a ringtone.
In the spirit of GTD, what’s the next action?
Here is a suggestion: why don’t you create another poll, put down a set time, place and activity and simply ask if people can/will do it. If you get more yeses then nos then do it! Otherwise ask for more input and try again.
He’s just been really busy, that’s all. Why do you think he’s pulled out? I thought the ipod tune was kind of thoughtful, not meant to offend anyone.
You start this, completely neglect organising it , then spam us?
Count me out too.
This will need to wait awhile for me and I’m sick of getting all the messages about it. I might change my goal to ‘participate in a flash mob’ or maybe find a third party organizer to participate with.
I hope this works out for other people in the team, but I’m outie for now.
I think if someone just went that’s it I’ll be here at this time who anyone wants to join me I’ll c u there … it would get further. That could be me but I’m too gutless at the mo …
A flash in a pan full of advertising, so I have decided to pull out.
