Spanking New: 43 Places from the Robot Co-op

I'll be talking a lot more about this soon, but I wanted to post a quick link to 43 Places, the latest from my homies here in Seattle, the Robot Coop, of 43 Things fame.

Update: At the time of this writing (6/26/05), 43 Places is not yet public, but should be soon.

It's all about where you've been and where you want to go. I'm digging the cool mapping features and the other 43 things-style goodness. Like 43 Things, it's a blog for people who aren't necessarily "bloggers".

Instead of the "Zeitgeist" for 43 Things, they are using "Wanderlust" (to be pronounced with your best German accent) for the same thing on 43 Places.

Big ups to the Robots for getting more of their master plan out into the world.
