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.

this won't

happen in the next 12 months at least. We’d still like to go, but the money isn’t there.

We go

on again and off again with our plans for this trip almost weekly. I think we’re going to go this year, at least until we change our minds again.

london first

We’re starting to sock money away for this. Hope to travel to London in mid-autumn. My wife especially wants to tour Victorian-era houses and ride the London Eye. Sounds good to me, too. I hope we can get away for a day and visit Stonehenge. I have this dream that we too will investigate and piece together prehistoric puzzles.

I've never been

My grandfather, an Irishman, loved London. This was back in the 70s. My grandmother said London was his favorite European city.
