Here comes Quackers

First there was Snuzzle, then Hugster. In the short but proud history of using My Little Pony names for 43 Things releases, next week we’ll be releasing Quackers … the next version of 43 Things.

What can you expect from Quackers? Here’s a preview of things to come:

Currently on 43 Things 16 people want to Attend a Building of Basecamp Seminar in London. But wouldn’t it be even cooler to see what 43 Things users in London are up to? What are the most popular goals in your city? Does anyone else in Pittsburgh want to ride in a hot air ballon? Quackers will answer these questions.

Plea for Help
You may have noticed the “Would you be willing to help others do this?” checkbox on your final entry after completing a goal. Quackers will leverage the community of people who’ve completed a goal and are willing to help the rest of us who are trying to complete the same goal. Want to quit smoking? Soon you’ll be able to ask these people for advice.

Enhancements and Improvements
As always, you’ve provided us with great feedback and all sorts of feature ideas. We’ll be rolling out a few more enhancements and improvements such as:

  • better search
  • better integration of anonymous users
  • support for WordPress
  • adding your list to your blog with a javascript include

…and of course one or two surprises.

Quackers will launch next week and we’ll be excited to hear what you think.

    I think adding location info would be a huge addition. Google Maps and A9’s Yellow Pages are two new-er examples of location as important data element and would be a natural fit for any networking app. I think Josh might even know a guy…<br />

    Congrats and keep up the good work. It’s fun to watch.
