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.

This Charming Man has been missing in action but is back, Jack!

try speed dating
Suprisingly Good!

I only went as a favour for a friend. Our other mate chickened out last minute and so I went along with him instead. I was only looking to have a laugh, which I did. I thought it would have been full or geeks or weirdos, but that wasn’t the case. Lots of teachers/accountants/lawyer types. Girls with a similar sense of having fun, socialising and meeting new people. We even went to a club after it with a load of them. Would definately do it again if it came around.
Went looking for new friends and found them.

So you liked speed dating…

I have always thought that sounded fun…

The lady who runs it around here is a little odd and the most unorganized women on the planet…

Who knows when she will have another one..

Maybe I will try it.

It was really good fun!
The key is though that you’re happy to be yourself, and not pretend you’re something your not.
Go do it.
It does wonders for confidence.
Plus I’ve got a couple of matches.


I’ve still got it!
