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.

If we would get some winter weather

I’d be all over this goal :(

When the weather is more wintery

I’ll see if Blake wants to get together and take a lesson. It’s good socializing motivation, and I know he wants to learn to snowboard too.

i never watch the olympics

but i was flipping channels and have been watching the snoboarding halfpipe event. Unreal. I just wanna be able to get down a mountain without killing myself. maybe this season…

If I could afford a mini-vacay...

I would totally love to do this 3-day $90 thing i keep hearing about on the radio. It’s for a mountain about 2 hrs from here, near where i used to live, and for the $90, you get lessons rentals and a lift ticket. The mountain’s not shabby,as far as I know, it’s just trying to keep up w/ Mountain Creek. I dunno how long the season is, but maybe i could pull together some money and try it, i want to learn so bad!!

aka "falling with style"

So I’ve heard this snowboarding thing is fun. All the young kids seem to dig it (haha, I’m only 23). Word on the street, tho, is that you need to possess a certain degree of coordination to get the hang of it. No worries. After a few hours on the slopes, I’m sure I’ll be falling on my face and breaking my bones with the best of them. ;)
