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 crash architect. i like voyage, i like voyage

I'm gonna spread my wings and take to the sky by doing one New and Fulfilling thing in July, August, and September 2010 (read all 6 entries…)
A pretty good start

1. I never thought I’d decide to get a degree in mathematics, but I gotta say it’s the best. field. EVER! I love pretty much all the lectures and… yeah, that’s pretty much it.
2. My ‘student initiation’ was yesterday. Even though everybody thought that our group never cares about anything [maybe because we’re 3rd, therefore last, I don’t know], we were the first group to complete the tasks and we totally kicked everyone’s ass in the rope pulling contest! xD
3. My foreign language score was the best one in the whole faculty!
4. Had a concert last Saturday and nobody showed up… xD But we started 2 hrs late, and there were some people after all. Damn you, basketball!!
5. I found out that we’ll have Physics in spring already. Somebody said that we’ll only 2nd year students have Physics, which made me a bit disappointed, so this is great news. I love Physics!
6. I didn’t get busted yet, but I doubt that people will really be this blind 4 damn years…

And that’s a lot of exclamation marks.
