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.

The World Is Out There...

...and I can’t afford to experience it! It’s not fair! I hate being stuck in one place, doing the same job everyday, going to school, and ironing my clothes so I can do it all over again. If I could take a long drive once in a while, that would ease the boredom. But gas is expensive! One of these days, when I’ve earned enough money, I want to see the world. It’s not enough for me to look in an encyclopedia and read about a foreign country. I want to see it and touch it! I want to be there. I want to hang out in Tahiti, then fly to Nepal, then fly to Morocco, then fly to Russia, then fly to Japan, then fly to Turkey, then fly to Australia, then fly to Greenland, then fly to Ghana, then fly to India, then fly to… BLAH! Whatever! Wherever! Anywhere in the world! I don’t want to see the same place for more than a week. There’s so much to see. And it will cost thousands and millions of dollars to travel everywhere. You know what would be cool? To be able to tell my friends that I visited EVERY FREAKINNATION IN THIS WORLD. How many people have done that? Journalists do that kind of stuff. The only problem is: I can’t visit Cuba ‘cause my government won’t let me. Oh well. It would be fun to get special permission to do so. Like those National Geographic photographers. They get permission to travel to ANY nation. They get all-access passes to the whole got damn world. Anyway, that’s my dream. “Climb every mountain…ford every stream….”
