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.

Item 1: "Seeing Stone Soup"

This was an absolute blast!

A team of us worked together collectively, with myself, Nick Woolsey (of Poi fame) and Naomi Steinberg (Storyteller extraordinaire) working heavily on script and concept and the whole team developing a dynamic, multimedia event at the Vancouver Planetarium focusing on the integration of Science and Spirituality.

I loved my role as lead “Marble Head” – Someone to outline the philosophical concepts that we were working with, and to help explain them to the team.

In addition to that came co-authoring the script, working with Marc Jirian (Tech Guru) and Jeff Ellis (creative dude)to put together the multimedia component, and functioning as “research liason”, contacting various scientists and researchers whose images or sounds we wanted to use in the show.

We only did one performance, but it was an incredibly rush, watching our combined efforts come to fruition in an inspiring, rich, and fun show!



I want to:
