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.

As of October 17, 2012, I am a permanent 18APA in the RBP unit! I was the successful candidate of the recent competition!


Yesterday I applied for a permanent 18APA in the RBP unit. I had applied for a 20 but didn’t even get an interview (neither did 3 others in my unit). I assume I will hear the results next week. Fingers crossed!! xox


My secondment got extended for 3 months (July 13) so that is great news. I interviewed for another 18APA contract at MOF but didn’t get it. I’m waiting to hear back from a 19MCP permanent job that I interviewed for last week. I also have applied for a 12 month contract for a 18APA at MCYS and haven’t heard anything yet. There may also be some permanent 18APAs and 20APAs coming up on RBP.

RbP Secondment

I applied to an expression of interest for an 18 APA business analyst in RbP and came in third. Lucky for me, #2 declined and there were 2 positions. So at least for 5.5 months I’m in an 18 role!
