I’ve been playing around with 43 Things and its family of sites for some time now.
I was taking a browse through my Del.icio.us inbox today (does everyone else use this? Its fabulous and I’ve only recently happened upon it!), and noticed a link that Robert Scoble (who I stalk via Del.icio.us) posted called 8by1
Now, I love the sentiment of the site (and it reminds me a lot of a site I was working on before called Act Now), but holy hell it reminds me way too much of the 43 Things site.
I took a little look around to see if anyone from 43 Things was claiming the site, or being credited for the the site or anything like that… but I can’t see anything. I tried checking out the 8by1 blog but that wasn’t loading…
I hate to bitch about something that has seemingly noble objectives, but … hell, it looks like they’ve ripped off 43 Things?!
Does anyone know some more background on this? Are they related?
I’m going to email them and ask. Stay tuned.
