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.

take tupperware to restaurants and use a travel coffee mug when i get coffee (read all 2 entries…)
I've been feeling guilty

because I’ve forgotten my tupperware everytime I’ve gone for dinner in the past couple of months. So I’ve stuffed my face and felt like crap after, or taken the styrofoam option which I felt SO guilty about.

Also I buy a lot of tea from the coffee shop next door to my work…with their cups, and its not so good. I always have my mug too, I don’t know what it is. I suck.

However, today I sent Gaelen to the Fickle Pickle (the local greasy spoon, like 3 doors down from the store) with a plate to get me a sandwich and fries…

except that they put tin foil over the plate, which totally defeats the purpose.

Tomorrow I’m going out for dinner (it’s prom, but I’m not going to prom because it’s really just not for me, (thats the short version), so we are going to a fancy, ridiculously expensive restaurant) and I will remember my tupperware, for sure.



Comments:

this is a very good idea, I think I will start trying to do this too!
because I always feel stuck between the rock of not wasting food and the hard place of wasting plastic
