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.

It took some effort but I was able to finish up the year and watch all 12 I needed to meet my goal. I’ve already gotten a jump on 2012 with a couple more watched.

I started this challenge back in 2006. There are so many of these films I don’t think I could ever watch them all. But watching a dozen a year will eventually make a dent in the list.

I have watched a total of 62 Criterion films, not counting the 10 I had seen prior to starting this challenge. So far, I have met my goal every year, but I am quite behind this year. It’s May and I haven’t gotten around to watching even one film from this collection this year. So, I need to spend some time watching some movies!
