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.

Kevin Jennings is procrastinating his Silverlight lessons.

learn Silverlight
The path to riches?

I’m currently a C# developer and I’m trying to learn Silverlight. The reason being, I have a friend that is a C#/Silverlight developer and they insist that Silverlight is a hot commodity for developers right now. His current company does all of their development in Silverlight and all of the developers get to work from home (the company insists on it!). I want that kind of work freedom. Heh, if I could work from home, that means I could live anywhere. Which ties into my other list item: Moving to Florida. We’re desperately looking for a way to move to St. Augustine, Florida. We hate living in Mississippi (mostly because of the small town we live in that has nothing of interest). So, I’m hoping that by learning Silverlight I’ll be able to get a “dream job” that will enable us to get out of here and live happily ever after in the oldest functioning city in the U.S.



I want to:
