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.

birdie99 on 43things 2007/3/29 discovered her identity as namesake of margaret valrae lynch known as lynchy to the dahlinger family and known as marnie to ours

2007/7/21 birdie99 on 43things knows that her time on earth is running out and she is thankful that before she died she found a way to answer john cote dahlingers book written with the help of frances spatz leighton The Secret Life of Henry Ford.

birdie99 knows that DNA is key to revealing the true paternity of john c dahlinger.

birdie99 believes the Ford Family should be forced to reinstate the Dahlinger Family to its prominence in the interest of true history.

birdie99 recalls that Heinlein wrote of bastardy in Stranger in a Strange Land and perhaps that is why miss jean valrae crotty became fixed on sci-fi.

birdie99 notes that Strom Thurmond admitted to Essie Mae Washington Williams that he fathered her as a young man.

birdie99 thinks Henry Ford may have thought he fathered John whether in fact he did or not.

birdie99 hopes fervently that David Hoffman and Syvia Nasar
and Peter L Bergen will work together on Boots to Booties,
the fragmented tale of Jeanie.
