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.

- The Robots.

objectninjaConcurrent programming

It’s always interesting to learn new paradigms, and Erlang is assurely one of those for me. I learned to design programs through processes which communicate through message passing. Also, there’s a Scheme port of this style which is Termite (gambit) 8 years ago

sigsegvsome nice features

Just got done with the “Getting Started With Erlang” tutorial. Erlangs language level support for message passing appears fairly straightforward to use (!, receive, after). My main concern is whether it can be hooked in with other communication protocols (e.g. xml, hessian, burlap) or are you bound to what erlang gives you. 9 years ago

sigsegv1 more for the road!

The last two nights I’ve been playing around with Erlang. I kinda of like it. The standard documentation supplied with erlang seems incredibly well written for a technical subject. The “Getting Started” guide got me picking up the language fairly quickly. I’m almost through the sequential programming chapter. Next is concurrent programming and I’m looking forward to that (I’ve cheated and looked ahead).
I must have reached some tipping point with functional programming languages. It’s getting easier and easier for me to pick them up. I keep seeing the same concepts repeated over and over again, albeit with dissimilar syntax and semantics. 9 years ago

Donimnot just for nordic phone switches

With all the buzz about parallel and distributed computing, between the continued rise of network apps, smart phones, and the move to multicore / cell processors even in plain ol’ desktops, this would not be a bad time to familiarize one’s self with a well proven language that is supposed to be good at that stuff. 9 years ago
