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.

Someplace I could really call home

My family immigrated to Israel from Georgia in the late 70’s (back then, I wasn’t yet born). We lived in a 2.5 room apartment of a 7 story building, in a messed up neigbourhood in Ashdod ‘till I was 12 years old.
My father’s dream was to plan and build a big house, and even though his profession was medicine, he learned the principles of engeneering and designed the house we live in today, by himself.
Someday, I plan to do the same myself since I feel that a real home is a place you plan and build yourself, and feel part of.
Looks and uses? think about Superman’s fortress of solitude, or Tom Hanks’s character’s fun apartment in BIG, or John Cassavetes’s house which he used to shoot movies at, and a bunch of late 60’s artist’s flats, which everyone visited and took part in creating stuff in.
