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.

Hmmm. Well, it was loud.

Otherwise it wasn’t too exciting. I worked in concessions at the beginning, monitored the dance in the middle, and worked in the “cloakroom” towards the end. It was really loud and I was getting a headache.

My daughter met her “date” there, but then they hardly spent any time together. I’m not sure if she ditched him, or he ditched her, but neither one seemed to care too much. She had a great time with her other friends.

The only really amusing part was when the song “Thriller” came on and all the teachers got so excited and went running in to show the kids how to dance like from the video. Ha.

Too fun.

A few years ago I was able to teach my niece and her friend The Hustle when we were dancing at The House of Blues in South Carolina. My cool quotient when up from an already pretty good level.

Des has gotten 11 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
