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.

Spend less time fooling around on the net and more time actually working

i managed (somehow) to spend 2 weeks without going onto any irrelevant sites…these being anything not directly conected with project research or e-mail. i got my work completed sooner! didn’t miss the irrelevant sites so much, but the not going on msn was my downfall after a fortnight!
i think i’ll try it again, so, hopefully this should be the last irrelevant thing i’m looking at on the screen untill…ooo next sunday at least. sigh


this isn’t going to great, my main web-addiction is msn, i tried not log on for a week, but failed miserably. i really should just not allow my self to go on the internet full stop, however i need to for reseach. okay okay, i’ll attempt not to connect to any irrelevant sites at all ‘till next friday. i can, and will, do this!


I want to:
