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.

joie de vivre Here, now and until the end

Elect Barack Obama president (read all 30 entries…)

Sent out to some friends:

Dear Jewish friends, friends of Jews, and fellow Obama supporters:

OK, so maybe you think Obama is a putz. If you’re in this category, go ahead and hit “delete” right now.

But, if you support Obama, and you are Jewish; or have friends who are Jewish and support Obama, I would like know if you would like to have an Obama kippah. I am coordinating the sale of kippot (or, “yarmulkes”, if you’d rather) for our area. We are hoping that our Obama yarmulkes will get people talking in shul and help us find more Obama supporters who want to join the movement. Everyone wearing an Obama kippah will be encouraged to point potential supporters to to get them signed up.

They will be suede kippot, in an ivory color, with “Obama ‘08” printed in blue, and the campaign’s logo directly above the text. If you have a large white Obama button, it will basically look exactly like that, (that’s even the exact same size) printed on one of the four panels of the stitched ivory kippah.

The cost is a suggested donation of $5 per yarmulke from each supporter to cover costs. If you donate more, I’ll forward that on to the campaign.

You’d definitely have them before Rosh Hashannah which starts Sept. 13th.

Email me ASAP if you are interested.

I don't think he's a putz...

I just don’t think he’s ripe yet.

This is a cool idea, though!

Trauma_Junkie ready for recovery week, and data pushing.

A Very cool idea

I Met Obama in Claremont NH this summer, on accident. I was going to work and his very cool motorcade blocked my progress. He was exceedingly polite and friendly, as were his bodyguards. I already liked him, but now I like him more because they were willing to move about 15 large vehicles so I wouldn;t be late to work.
Unfortunatley I am unsure the US is ready for a president named Barak….
