I’m certainly not the only one who gave 43Things a shot after the Salon article that has been so widely discussed. Suffice it to say that the “there’s no such thing as bad publicity” adage probably holds true here. Their traffic (via Alexa) certainly seems to point to a rash of new interest:
The number of visitors who have signed up and like what 43Things is doing almost certainly outnumbers those who have been using the service and now feel betrayed. Plus, is it really such a bad thing to be associated with Amazon? It’s like being asked your biggest weakness in a job interview.
43Folders’ biggest weakness is Amazon. That’s pretty good.
