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.

Season/Series Finale

Of the 1 that happened in the past few weeks any you really liked? hated?


wren You'll not see nothing like the mighty wren!


I really liked the ending episode of The Killing, and I really hated the finale of House.

that's interesting

I liked all the episodes of the The Killing but the final episode. They did all that great work of creating complex, moral characters, and then nearly annihilated that progress so that nothing really computed at the end. I was disappointed.

Lost touch with House in recent years, and cannot comment.

That’s very different from my take on it. I thought the ending made loads of sense.

Katie home 4 the holidaze

I second that.

I personally loved the finale of this season. But before the last several episodes of s2, the season was a little disappointing. C’est la vie. Looking forward to the next season. :)

Desperate House finale was alright

I didn’t think everyone would get a happy ending but of course the main characters did. It ranks as being somewhere in the middle.

For Glee of course they graduated which was expected and it's not clear what some of them are doing so next season should be interesting.

Wiggum224 Still on Twitter, not under this name. Contact me for info.

I liked the finale of Mad Men, and that it gave us somewhat of a breather after the big developments of the two previous episodes. I also particularly liked that Betty made no appearance in it!

And, to be honest, out of the shows whose seasons ended in May, nothing really stood out for me out of the stuff that I watch, other than Parks and Recreation. The Big Bang Theory was nice enough as well.

itsasecret has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
