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.

Hedgepiglet in England is doing 11 things including…

take a photography course


Hedgepiglet has written 7 entries about this goal


OK so last class didnt really exist, but I’m gonna have fun making my light box. Any (decent) pictures I take will be posted on deviantart under the name: Hedgepiglet. All in all I couldve learnt a little more but hey, I paid $15 so it was pretty good for that. And I learnt all the technical side (what aperture/lens speed means) so I shall try and put it to good use.

I just found this!!

On how to make a light box – now I have to rush through my homework so I can make it in time to take photos for my class tonight.
fun fun!

Last Photography Class

and it certainly has taught me some things… although ideally I would like to be on a much longer course. Nevermind.


So far so much fun :) We havent been taught anything yet, we merely did a presentation on photographers who may have inspired us. I previously knew of no such specific people (except for Lara Jade and Akif Hakan Celebi whose work I had seen on deviantart) so it was a great opportunity for me to go out and find some! I came across Richard Avedon (I especially love his “American West” series) and friends suggested Sebastiao Salgado (amazing documentary style photographs) and Tina Mclelland who has some great self portraits.
Next week we are to be given a tour around the dark rooms and facilities, and then i guess the learning begins!


I’ve just signed up for a 6 week photography course – 3 hours every Tuesday night – for $15! Nice. Suffice to say the free one got a little forgotten and there wasnt much in the way of feedback.

Look what I found....
