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.

I’ve been answering alot of requests to join and would like to keep inviting more people … especially since theres the 43things group at Orkut now ….

But I’m marking this done to make room …

There's a 43things community at Orkut now

But it’s kind’a lonely in there … so maybe some of you will come join us?

I just joined

Thanks to an invitation from another 43things member. It’s pretty cool. Another online community. It actually reminds me of Stumbleupon .... but they ask for ALOT of info …. but the info in peoples profile is what makes it so interesting.

It’s “in affiliation with google” and when you sign up you even get an invitation to get a free gmail account (at least I did).

Anyway, it’s by invitation only …. so if anyone wants to join, let me know.

OH … editing to say that Orkut asks us to put in a first and last name along with an email address when sending an invite … so please make sure you include at least first and last initials along with your email addy to get your invite. Thanks!
