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.

carecalder had forgotten about this site, but was happily reminded.

see more live music (read all 3 entries…)
hot child in the city

So this is somewhat of a strange thing for my list because compared to many people I do watch a lot of live music. All that aside though, I want to make sure that I keep going to live shows, so adding it to my things to do list is a great reminder.

I’ve bought my festival pass for Ottawa’s Bluesfest, so I’m excited for the summer.

This month I’ve seen Jason Collett with Zeus and Bahamas – fanastic show!

I also went to see Graham Wright (of Tokyo Police Club – his album should be out in the Fall, great stuff, check it out, you can download is Lakes of Alberta EP for free:, who played with In Flight Safety and Said the Whale. Again, another amazing evening for only a few dollars.

I also just bought tickets for the Born Ruffians and Ted Leo shows in June, which I’m super excited for!!!

Debating buying tickets for the Besnard Lakes & Young Galaxy show. I’ve seen them both before, but that was awhile ago.

This summer is going to be wonderful. :)
