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.

Well, I Assume They Are

In the aforementioned AP English class, we were given a fairly large summer reading list. We were to then choose the two we wanted to read beyond the one already chosen for us. While I didn’t get to finish the class, I’d like to think I can still read them. I guess, in a way, I’m stubborn in wanting to prove I could still read the material, despite not being qualified for the class.

I understand it’s a pretty tall order, especially since there are some on that list that I know I won’t like (any of the ones under the modern classification of “Romance”; I swear I like the old definition better) and some I will like to know what the powers-that-be were smoking when they proclaimed the piece a classic (As I Lay Dying? Really? I’ll agree it’s a piece; a big, steaming p—... I digress), but I suppose I feel like I have something to prove.
