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.

live without a television for a year
it kinda sucks

i felt very ‘out of the loop’ news-wise.. if you are good and get your news off of the internet or by newpaper then it can be feasible but otherwise i feel like it just puts me so out of touch with the world!


Out of whose loop

I understand you completely. I really do. BUT… the mainstream news media are not telling you the truth. You get snipits of what is happening in the world with a very biased POV. So which loop? Whose loop? Know that for every news story and report that is being transmitted to you, there are hundreds that are censored and depending where in the world you are, will never reach your ears. But there is yet another issue about the news. Dr Andrew Wild says that news reports are designed to create fear and high levels of anxiety causing stress which is a huge contributor to many health problems. I could go on, but let me just say that if you must watch regular TV, you had better have an attitude that there is no truth in it and just enjoy it as entertainment fiction.

I agree with sollang… I stopped watching the news years ago, all it was doing was upsetting me…


I want to:
