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.

move to Iowa
Iowa , Oh my

I moved to iowa in 8/2004 but only to go to the Univesity. Iowa is a nice place to move but i believe it depends on where you move in iowa. Their a few places that many people may not want to move. But if your young and college bound i would recommend Iowa City. I Currently live in Iowa City and I love it, the people are so FREAKING NICE.It’s a great place to have your kids grow up. I’m from Chicago and Iowa is a big change. It’s less people, less stuff to do, but Less Crime,Less traffic. You know it’s kinda take this or take that. You have to weigh your options. Iowa’s nice but i do Miss Chi-town, the windy city, so many places to shop:) But iowa is for people who are looking to concentrate and live the good life. So i would recommend it. It’s a cool place. It’s only 3 hours away from Chicago anyway!!
