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.

Kiwa I got a place where all my dreams are dead.

become a werewolf (read all 3 entries…)

Alright, so we just beat SOPA and PIPA, and now guess the hell what?

Some other shit called ACTA is coming! Yay, great!

Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (or ACTA) is basically something against piracy. Basically. But guess what comes with this? Internet censorship, oh I love this.

What is this actually about is in short, me not being able to download ANY KIND OF SHIT from the internet. Like, if I go to a doughnut recipee, find it nice and copy-paste it over to someone else, my e-mail account can be taken down, they can cut off my internet and I can even get sued. Indeed people, I’m not allowed to copy text either. Because I’m piracing! Woohoo!

Acta was passed down in secret (wonder why) at some shit convention at Tokyo. Surprisingly, the countries who actually do big-time piracy didn’t even sign it, those being China, Russia, or South America.

It was passed down in Romania (FML!), USA (What the fuck), Australia (T_T), Canada (????), Japan (if you’re trying to censor internet in the Ja-fucking-pan, you must be dumb), South Coreea, Maroc, New Zeeland and Singapore.

For Europeans, this ACTA shit will soon visit Bruxelles. If it’s passed down in the European Union, it will affect all countries in EU, which is biiiig time shit.

Anyhow, people are already taking action. Anonymous has threathened to attack some Government data bases, and Polish people are already starting to riot.

What you could do is spread the word. Copy this entry, make a new one, whatever. Change your account picture, idk, just do something. Protest if you don’t like it. Get informed, read/watch the links I put there. We are NOT going to let the governments kill the internet, fuck no. Fine whatever, piracy and shit, but as long as you’re taking 80% of my freedom, bitch please.

Get pissed off. Not pissed on.
