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.

WTF?!

So sorry to read that. As of last week I thought it was just Bibi being racist. Surely it’s a small minority, though, I hope?

Just as I read your post, I saw on FB a number of posts from the New Israel Fund, Liberal Judaism (UK) and others deploring the racist violence. At least you’re not alone in the world.

Well, seeing as we have a coallition

of 94 out of 120 MKs, all between right and very extreme right, and there is even one party in the oposition that didn’t join in because they ar even rarther to the right, I’d say, not a very small minority. Of course, the people who actually act with violence are a minority. But a very common remark I’m hearing is: well the violence is wrong, but I know what they mean by it, the foreigners are criminals, they are violent, they have deseases.

I see

Sounds like they’re scared. But didn’t I read that the crime rate is actually lower amongst African refugees than among regular Israelis…?

I'm not sure.

I’ve seen references to several researches, they seemed contradicting but I don’t know. Maybe they measure different things, or over different periods.
Suppose there is really more crime? There may be crime where there is poverty, I suppose.

I think I heard

that the chief police guy in Israel was making that claim.

But to be honest I haven’t been able to follow it that closely so I could be wrong.
