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.

Born of Stardust dances the line between two worlds...

Create Youtube Videos that I can be proud of. I want them to be documentations of my life and to grow with me as I grow. I want them to be profound and silly and mine. (read all 20 entries…)
Banana Dance, Time Turner, and Basilisk...

This is a video that I made for my friend Leelah and the country of Taiwan. It’s the banana dance and my reflections on being an exchange student. I am getting better at editing voice-overs. Sometimes the sound quality isn’t very good because my camera wasn’t really meant for recording sound, but I try my best. This video will probably make me smile in the future.

A silly video I made one day in the library about Basilisks and Time Turners…
