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.

Why?

If I have the goal of keeping in touch more often with the people who are important to me… then clearly I’m challenged by maintaining the relationships I already have. Having a goal to meet more like minded people, then, seems out of priority.



game day = successful

I felt a little shy going to the “open board game day” at Dr. No’s store, but it was worth the moments of awkwardness. I ended up staying to observe one & play 2 more games; while I’m not sure if any of the people I met would be “like minded” in multiple areas, we at least shared one interest and I had a good time.

I’ll definitely be going back again.



Getting Started: Board Game Day at a local store

Logic dictates that the optimal way to meet like minded people is to go out and do things I love to do. The people also doing these things would, logically, have at least one thing in common with me.

So, I’m going to Dr. No’s Comic & Game store http://www.drnos.com/ this afternoon for their open board game play. I may be the only person over 40; I may be the only girl. No way to know unless I go!
