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.

try a new restaurant every month (read all 11 entries…)
May 2011
  • Skillet Diner—This is the physical restaurant for what has heretofore been a pop-up or mobile experience. The space is awesome, and the food is fantastic. Very comfort-food-ish … including breakfast all day. Next time I want to try biscuits and gravy + poutine. Hello future food coma.
  • Plum Bistro—A vegan restaurant right by work. The veggie ingredients are fresh, organic, and flavorful, but the tofu on my crispy teriyaki tofu 1) tasted like it had been crisped to death and 2) definitely lacked the traditional teriyaki flavor. I do plan to go back to try to Tofustrami on Rye.


mac and yease

If you like greasy salty things (and I mean that in the best way) try the mac and yease. It has some detractors from people who like their vegan food healthy (and from people who expect it to taste exactly like cheese), but it’s tasty!

kmar has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
