Nice Ad[edit]

Really. This is one of the best advertisements for a website I've ever seen on Wikipedia. Thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.181.197.110 (talk) 19:07, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

The phrase "Amazon.com has not confirmed whether they are porting their whole website to use the Ruby programming language or if they actually let small companies they invest in make their own decisions." belongs in tabloid journalism, not an encyclopedia.

Please promote your programming language du jour elsewhere. huh!

Amazon.com has also not confirmed whether they are planning to murder all their employees and replace them with oompa loompas, but I don't feel that is notable either. Nice —Preceding unsigned comment added by Glamourpup (talkcontribs) 15:26, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

Salon.com CEO resignation[edit]

The article seems to suggest that the Mieszkowski debacle may have had something to do with David Talbot's resignation as CEO.

The fact that Talbot remains as the chair of Salon's corporate board; that the resignation from CEO position happened on the day Salon posted profit for the first time; and that a permanent successor was named immediately make this hypothesis very unconvincing.[1]

Controversy?[edit]

This whole controversy section is idiotic. This doesn't seem like the sort of factual information that belongs in an encyclopedia.

The real beauty of Wikipedia is the massive wealth of knowledge available for those willing to take the time to actually look. My search for knowledge, answers and social contacts have been increased so much with the great care and hard work of the authors of these very important articles. People like yourself who take the time to add so many helpful links and explain things so clearly are a blessing. I have felt like I have just found a library that has been hidden to me for so long. Thank you sir for all your efforts and valuable information.

Category:Conspiracy theories[edit]

I removed this category from the article. Its inclusion here makes no sense to me whatsoever, after reading the current article. But I thought I should make a note of it since it looks like it's been here a long time. Grandmasterka 04:05, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

In need of references[edit]

The page currently has no references. I have found the URL to the official blog stating that they have reached 1 million members in April 2007 (http://blog.robotcoop.com/2007/04/27/43-things-has-gone-platinum/). The blog also confirms a few other statements found in the Wikipedia entry (although the "43 Things Launches!" entry is dated one day before what the article says. Puceron (talk) 02:11, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

@Puceron: I agree. This statement needs an accurate source: "As of September 30th, 2014, the 43 Things website contains an announcement advising users that it will go offline on New Years Day, 2015." I believe their announcement goes even before 30 Sept 14. This link has a user inquiring about their announcement as far back as 22 May 14. http://www.43things.com/entries/view/6484211 --Zyvzyva (talk) 21:35, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
