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.

Hey girl!
I don’t know where about you live or if you have anything like this around you but I do the San Francisco Aids walk every year. I’m not sure if it’s a volunteer thing because you have to pay to get in but you don’t get anything for doing it. Anyway it’s 6 miles long but after I walk it I feel incredibly good because I felt like I supported a good cause. So many kudos for you wanting to volunteer at a hospital and I hope it goes well for you!

It’s normally the second or third weekend in july. You can google san fran aids walk and they’ll post it. 6 miles up and down those hills though. They kick my butt every year but theres like 30 something thousand people that do it :)
