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.

How to go to Dragon*Con 2009

D*C 2009 was absolutely amazing

Picture 30k people, at least 75% of whom have and use actual thinking, working brains; a clear passion for life; and demonstrable creativity.

Add in four straight days of multiple interesting tracks full of content with topics of discussion that range from hard science through to the most fantastic of fantasy.

Throw in myriads of highly creative costumes that clearly required massive engineering, planning, design and execution.

Stir in Southern graciousness, which keeps many people from the overt rudeness that could otherwise be common in large crowds.

What was DragonCon like? It was all of that, and more. It was amazing and life affirming and gloriously fun and fabulously thought provoking.

beams and in trying to describe it to you, I’ve rekindled the memory for myself – and am now blissed out all over again. So, thank you for asking!

i have to go next year!

I’ve been to a scifi con in Richmond but didn’t find out about Atlanta until it was too late to plan. Did you get to meet any special writers or tv stars?

ATLfemme has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.
