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.

I really appreciate

his musicianship, if you ever get the chance to see him in concert, treat yourself. He’s a lot of fun; he has a great rapport with the audience, at least he did that night, and he does this really cool thing with his feet, a combo of keeping time, I think, and using his own feet as percussion on the floor of the stage. You can actually hear it in some of his recordings….I love a good live show. I like good showmanship/rapport as much as the music, though I get it when an artist just wants to get up there and play….like Bob Dylan. I have seen him twice, and he doesn’t chat much with the audience, but he is polite, says thanks once in a while, introduces his band and such at least. I have seen people in the past whose stage presence was horrible. Shawn Colvin, and Michelle Shocked, for example, both of whom were insufferably rude and bitchy. If I have just paid X amount for a ticket, I don’t care if you choose not to banter with the audience, but please don’t be RUDE to it, especially if they are being gracious and welcoming. Bad form, man! Shawn Colvin bitched about my state and the weather (what does one expect when they come here in winter???) and Michelle Shocked, whom I have seen 2x (never again) threw her mike down on the stage and walked off because no one was dancing! (Neither venue had any dance space at all, and to stand up in front of our chairs to dance would have meant blocking the view of other people….) her band played on both times. They must be used to her tantrums….”Ohhhh there she goes again, let’s just jam for a while again, shall we boys….” So unprofessional and ungracious…..
