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.

Jitterbug "Christmas Song"

There is a song that has made its rounds through the playlist of Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn that has a real Jitterbug – Jive style to it, the most pronounced lyric is “welcome to my Christmas song”, on the computers that control music system neither the name of the song nor the artist appear – ARGH !

Does anyone have an idea of what this song can be?

Sorry, no

The Elton John song I’ve heard a lot, but never knew it was EJ. Wish I could help with the song you’re wondering about!

This probably isn’t it either, but it’s worth a try.

If you happen to have an iPhone, there’s an app called Shazam that’s sometimes able to identify the song title and artist of a tune that’s playing. If you don’t have an iPhone, maybe you can commandeer one the next time it’s on. :P
