12:59 pm - 43 Things
Yesterday I finally started to play around with 43 Things. There is a link to my list on the right of my page, or go here if you're curious. Part of this was motivated by stumbling across Carrington Vanston blog (author of the now-ended Movie Punks webcomic). He has a link to his To Do Before I Die list. In describing the origin of it, he writes:

I'm not much of a list-maker, but this has always seemed like a good thing to have: a reminder that there are more important things than watching television, and probably a limited time in which to do them.

There are various things in my head that I plan to do before I die -- most sooner rather than later. Sometimes they come out as a surprise when I act on them -- hiking the Inca Trail, for example. My 43 Things page starts to enumerate them as I think of them. That's part of the rationale. Most of these are things I could act on but don't, and I have no intention of using the list to generate guilt. Another reason is that it is a fun procrastination tool, they've got a fun idea user-interface-wise. This is my step into the next generation of collaboration tools -- I've been building a lot of Wikis lately, and loving them, but they are oh so 2003. And my livejournal? Ha. Dinosaur. Memestreams is almost next-gen -- could be if they add tagging.

That's a not a bad little site. Goals (big and small) are wonderful to have. i realized, after seeing the "10 things i've done" meme on my friend's page over and over that there's SO MUCH i haven't done... and i love lists.
