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.

T - Restaurant Challenge

Thai Patio – In the heart of Thai town, I like this restaurant for it’s atmosphere and food. It is popular, but usually not crowded and there is always some entertainment in the evenings. Great for a night out in Hollywood.

Thai Ocean – On Vermont Avenue, Thai Ocean stands by itself in a sea of Korean & Latino businesses. It is like home Thai cooking and just a block away from Wilshire Blvd & the subway. They only take cash, but the food and the portions are definitely worth going here.

The Stinking Rose – One of the few restaurants in Beverly Hills restaurant row that I like, this sister restaurant of the original in San Francisco is all about the garlic. And I have learned a lot about preparing garlic that I tried here first. My favorite dishes are the pastas which I think are way better than Olive Garden. The meats are OK too, but at $20 a plate or more they should be! And never go here on a holiday because it gets way too crowded.

Tom’s Jr. – This is a hamburger stand, but they do have the biggest breakfast burrito I’ve ever gotten. Some people complain that it has too much potato in it, but one will never complain that it doesn’t fill you up.


The Stinking Rose

The one in SF is really fun and the food is fantastic. I haven’t been to the one in Beverly Hills but if it is like the one in SF, then I’m in!

Stephen has gotten 8 cheers on this entry.
