Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

rant on occasion to get it off my chest (read all 7 entries…)
Driving a sports car like it's made of glass...

Yes, I know, there are more rants out there about driving than could fit in an encyclopedia. But, here’s one that came up lately. Don’t buy a high end sports car like a BMW or Porsche and then drive it like a granny. (No insult to grannies intended.) So, a BMW pulls out in front of me, and goes just the speed limit, or just under?? WTF? If you’re going to pay big bucks for a car that moves, MOVE IT! That’s what it’s for. Grrrrr. By the way, Toyota Camry drivers are the slowest drivers. Never get behind one, or it’ll take you an extra hour to get to your destination.


gitana17 Life doesn't come up with a remote,so,get up and change it yourself!

hahahahaha,Anita,you made me laugh,I think the same about those expensive cars,what a shame,idiots driving so slow those fine machines,it makes me mad as hell,by the way, i think that the PT cruiser drivers are the sloooooooooooooooooooooooow ones

ha hahahaha!

Thanks for your comment…I’m glad someone agrees :) Yes, PT Cruisers…omg. The drivers do generally go slowly, maybe that’s why they’re called “cruisers” but excuse me while I say that they’re the ugliest cars around, besides that cube thing. My husband and I have fun with the PT cruisers…you know the “Punch Buggy red (or whatever colour the VW beetle is that you see), no punch backs!” game that kids play, we play that, but we added one, “Punch Ugly red, no punch backs!” whenever we see a PT Cruiser. Ha hahahaha!
