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.

go on a road trip with no predetermined destination

Drove to UD for a Thursday night this summer before I went to Hawaii for my last few college credits and before I started work immediately after getting home. Stayed with Brent Songer, TJ Ferriss, John Okerson, and Brian Willebrand at 456 BLowes (where Kogut Cioffi Chase and Evon lived Junior Year). One night very slowly turned into an extended 8 night stay, and I left as their 5th Roommate. This was one of the best moves I have ever made, great foundations with all these boys ( +Ben Gough) and they only grew more genuinely over the 8 days. It never felt like a visit or like I was stepping on anyones toes, esp with my own top bunk.

I am so happy to have ended my time at UD on campus with this. I love all of them and Ben and I felt like I was with family.
