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.

Learn to surf (read all 5 entries…)
wet feet

We got to Kalahari today! It’s so nice to be out of Rockford. Away from the schedule. It’s also nice to know that I don’t have the schedule tomorrow or the day after.

Anyway….I tried the Flowrider for the first time today. It was actually kinda hard at first to get the hang of it. I mean getting the hang of positioning yourself and moving around and all that. But it’s pretty awesome now. We didn’t get to try surfing today. They opened it to surfing at 7:00 but we had a service at 6 until 10 so we missed it today. But a few of us are watching all 3 LOTR extended editions tonight so we’ll be up early haha. I guess they let people surf in the morning before it gets busy.

They had a surfing demonstration that we watched. It was pretty sick. It’s definitely not real surfing so I think even if I do accomplish it here, I can’t check this off the list. The boards are really short, a little shorter than snowboards. And of course the environment is a little different. This will probably be more similar to wakeboarding than surfing. I’ve gone wakeboarding once. It was pretty easy I guess. Hopefully I’ll get my chance to try this out tomorrow.
