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.

Develop a practical guide for Living Sustainably! (also known as Reducing Ecological Feetprints or being Environmentally Friendly and such... all have similar notions but would be useful to summarise constructive advice and have links to reliable info) (read all 2 entries…)
more on mogwai propagation...

for the disbelievers see here for all the environmentally friendly goals, and here for all the goals concerned with ecological footprints, and also here for sustainable living

it’s an epidemic i tell you!!! trees everywhere are being hugged more than they ever were before… (grass roots jokes aside) you’d be just plain crazy not to get in on the action… so join me! :D

ooh ooh, and i also thought once the intial guidelines are posted, if we wanted to add more info thats location specific we could just copy the goal and add “in Timbuktu” (or wherever you are) at the end!

[of course it is my hidden agenda to contribute to the propogation of more goals… i’ve been pro-gremlin breeding a looong time now… but that really is an aside to my general ambition here]

hows that for thinking aye ;) not only that, but i think i’m procrastinating from doing that other thing i promised… y’know the guidelines first draft thingee? yep, well, if you wanna see it you have to join me with this goal, so there :P hehe
