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.

Install Linux on my Macbook Air (read all 2 entries…)
I got...

I used to use Linux quite a bit at work. It’s great that there isn’t a lot of virus and exploit possibilities with it.

I had...

...used Ubuntu several years ago before I got into using Macs for everything. I still really do like Apple, but it is becoming so big, just like Microsoft. I have been a loyal Mac user since 2007, but lately, I don’t really like the idea of who closed natured iOS is and how that it beginning to filter into OS X. I’ve always liked the concept of open source computing, (both OS and in software), so I thought I might start tinkering around with Linux again and see what’s changed in the last five years (a lot). I went with Bodhi just because of how customizable it is and because it’s a Ubuntu derivative.
