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.

Good Stuff

Please tell me that the “pb” you ate with your broccoli wasn’t peanut butter. And if it was, please don’t tell me that you put it on your steamed broccoli.

please tell me that you're not being

sanctimoniously annoying.

I just dislike peanut butter that much.

Anyway, hope you’ve been keeping up with the veggies.

nicolasc has left the building. 43T and the friends I made will always be special to me.

Haven't you ever had

Chinese or Thai food that have veggies in peanut sauce? Yum! But of course if you dislike peanut butter, then nothing is going to appeal to you. :-/

RuthG lives.

It's also African!

Cooked greens with a bit of peanut butter sauce = yum!

I do enjoy Thai with peanut sauce, but that is not peanut butter. In my mind I see people dipping their broccoli spears in a jar of Peter Pan.

Broccoli is meant to be dipped in cheese, preferably aged cheddar. :)

apology accepted


to each his or her own, yes?

I saw a package of fresh scrapple at the deli yesterday. I’ll eat that and you can have your peanut butter. ;)

Hope you’re surviving the shutdown of the city.

i interpreted “pb” as personal best. yup, always helps to focus on the good stuff.

Cloudberry is a tomato plant with her roots nestled in rich compost.

broccoli with pb

yes, one of my favorites, too: pb with a bit of chili paste, soy sauce, sugar, hot water, tossed with some Thai rice noodles… yum!

bookish has gotten 4 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
