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.

Political Apathy

So today I participated in my first ever war protest but it was more than that. It was a way to toss off my political apathy and quit sitting on the sidelines.
Protesting was a way for me to become engaged in the process of democracy in this country and in the world.
I highly value decocracy and freedom but for too many years I’ve just exercised that value by voting. It’s important to me, to take that value and stretch it a bit more by becoming more active in the process by protesting, volunteering for the election campaign and voting.
This was a good thing to toss because there was something better to replace it with and that’s Political Involvement.


way 2 go...

this war has gone on way 2 long…

democracy is evolved, u cant just go in guns blazing and make ppl conform to democracy..

its not good to have a cowboy in the white house…

Great Toss!

And even greater replacement. It’s so important to raise up your voice. You’ve inspired me!
