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.

work on my German (read all 4 entries…)
Ich habe mein Deutsch ganz vergessen :o(

Big Bro and I conversed in rather halting German for a while last night, and it’s quite shocking how much I’ve forgotten. It does come back when I speak it for a bit, but I wouldn’t really consider myself fluent anymore. Big Bro mentioned Rosetta Stone again, and said he’d get me a copy, so that’ll help – if he comes through this time :-p

We mentioned the possibility of going on another trip to Germany together, too. Maybe back to Karlsruhe, which we both liked, or maybe Hamburg – I’d love to see Hamburg again. It’ll probably be next spring/early summer before we can make it happen, though – I already have more travel plans than I know what to do with between now and Christmas, and taking time off work in the first few months of the new year is verboten. But it’s something to look forward to, and a reason to keep practising the language.


redbandita does NOT want to be facebooked, twittered or shared.

Naja, ich kann ja ein bisschen nachhelfen!

Mach Dir keine Sorgen, Dein passives Deutsch bleibt Dir sicher erhalten. Solange Du Deinen Gegenüber verstehst, werden Dir auch die richtigen Antworten einfallen. Das kommt nach 10 Minuten wieder.
Ich muss allerdings zugeben, dass mein Deutsch auch total eingerostet ist, da ich meistens Englisch oder Holländisch spreche.
Nur Mut!
