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.

Gobolino On a way to better...

Make birthday gift for Sandra (read all 4 entries…)
Done!!!

Finally I did it, book has been assembled, cover has made (by one of dance girls, she done amazing job) and it has been sent to Sandra, hopefully he will get it in March 14th, but well that`s not a big matter.

In the end, cover was made by Sigita, completely different than I was imagined, it is heavily photoshopped photograph (made artistically off course), in the picture there is 14 pencils and three paper pages, and on one of them there is little Latvian folklore star Auseklītis.

In the end book is heavy 2,3kg, made with heavy, soft fake leather in nice green font and texture, I was amazed about it, I was imagined something much, much simpler, but this is way better than intended.

I decided to send book trough mail mostly because I want it as surprise and if I would use courier or other methods, surprise moment would me much less because I would had to tell what I have done before she gets her present. I know that she hates surprises, but well, I like them and sometimes you must go with flow…

In the rush and hurry to get things done I forgot to take picture of book, so, well use imagination.
