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.

Today is the day

Today we record our live album! Lot’s of set-up today. We ran all the lines yesterday (both snakes and 16 channels) Also EQed the room yesterday. Today we need place all the mics and do a full run-through an test the recording.
I’m super pumped to run live sound tonight because every instrument is completely isolated so there’s literally no stage-noise. So I got my work cut out for me making it sounds great.

So after tonight, post-production begins! My friend Andrew Justus is going to be doing almost all the post stuff but ill be sittin in with him as much as I can. Logic is really a simple program. People said the new interface is hard to learn but its really not. If you just memorize the shortcuts its super easy! Maybe because I’ve worked with FLstudio before it seems easier. FruityLoops was super confusing at first but a friend helped me find my way around that and now I love it. I actually hate GarageBand because FL is so awesome! I’m thinking I want to find a copy of windows to run on my Mac so I can have it on here. I would definitely make more music then.
I’m also thinking of trying to get a summer job being an engineers assistant at a local recording studio. I’d love to get into studio recording more and eventually invest in enough equipment to be able to do it myself.

So alot of great opportunities have come my way. The Lord is great.





I want to:
