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 make a movie


rockwilder is a self-knowing creative romantic.

Your movie experience

Your movie experience sounds awesome and I would love to see part of your movie. Did you put any up on YouTube?
I like what you said about remembering the Beatles lyrics, but you didn’t specify so I don’t know which ones you were refering to. However, any Beatles lyrics could be source of inspiration.
I am inspired by your film making.

Thank you =]

Aww that was a really lovely comment – thank you. When i mentioned Beatles it was sort of a play on words cause the at start i mentioned getting by with a little help from my friends =]
No i didn’t put my film up on youtube and my computer crashed so after i made it so now the only copy i have is on a dvd. When i find the dvd i’ll figure out a way of copying the files back onto my laptop (i’m not very technical. The film editing took three days because it was mostly trial and error) then i’ll upload them and i’ll let you know. I’m glad and honoured that i inspired you. Charlie Chaplin and artist Cornelia Parker were a major influence for me whilst i was making my film and though its nothing extraordinary, i’m still proud. I’ll defiantely let you know as soon as i find and upload it. Good luck with your film!! x
