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.

organize my bookmarks

43things is becoming very useful for me. Organising my bookmarks is something I struggle with constantly. I’m not very organised by nature, and I currently have hundreds and hundreds (maybe even a thousand?) bookmarks, and I’ve spent many hours studying library science websites in order to learn how to classify things.

Right now I have a very cumbersome folder system that still doesn’t really allow me to find what I’m looking for. I downloaded this great program called AM deadlinks which is fantastic. It searches through all of your bookmarks and lets you know which are dead links.

Next, I’m looking into various social bookmarking sites. I’d signed up for some time ago, but found it confusing. I’m looking at it again though, because so many people seem to like it. I’m also looking at Xerpi, which runs s-l-o-w-l-y but has a really interesting interface.


I want to:
