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.

read Anna Karenina

Received a Kindle for my birthday and the first thing I did was download Anna Karenina. Took me a little while to get in to it and I have to admit, I found it a little daunting when it showed me that I’d only read 17% (and it felt like I’d been reading for AGES!!!) but eventually got into it and having that percentage tracker is a lot more exciting now that it’s at 94%.
The only problem I had was after my brother had been playing with the kindle and lost my page. He tried to leave it on the right page – as he said “I left in on the page where the Russian name said something serious to the other Russian name” but unfortunately that describes pretty much the whole story…



I want to:
