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 an art
Monday, November 30th 2009

My father makes art for a living and has been for the majority of his life. While mostly working with clay in his creations, his portfolio includes pieces with mediums ranging from Pop Culture Magazines mixed with Biblical text, to recycled computer chips on canvas. It makes me scratch my head at times when I see such talent and ability in his work, but cant seem to even come up with a concept when trying to make a piece of my own. It just goes to show that even something that should run in your veins cant compensate for the years of experience gained by the starving artist.

Update coming soon on my quest for culture.
