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.

have less paper in my life (read all 3 entries…)
Even less paper

Today I went through 7 years of paper, bills, and various paper crap I’ve saved for no real good reason other than to take up space in my filing cabinet. It looks like Xmas with all the shredded paper I have I could start packing presents early this year. Anytime I get a statement in the mail I make a point to switch it to email only. Usually the turn around time is pretty quick if I get on it right away and I wont see another paper statement again. Somehow my mother’s name is floating about still and I’ve recently been getting mail for her although she’s been dead since 98. I suppose I should get her off of whatever mailing lists she’s on. Will it ever end…? It’s definitely better.

less paper is best. My room looks better now with less paper afte I’ve read the book Apartment Therapy. They do have a website, check out apartmenttherapy.com. Inspiring!

standard adobe acrobat/scanner + external hard drive = no paper :)

i pdf print everything (from the internet to research papers, etc.) so there is no paper. save on hard drive. back up on external hard drive so nothing is lost and everything is retrieveable :)

switched to online statements for everything and electronic bill payments for the past 5 years and never had a prob. :)
