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.

What Music Has Become

Music today has become very conceited and materialistic. I was talking to my friend last night about this and she said ‘Music that artists write is either trying to make people love the artist, or people love other people. Right now, it’s all about loving the artist’. And I think this is terrible. I think music is a very powerful thing, and can convey strong emotions and ideas. I want to write music that provokes thought and makes you wonder ‘Is the way that I’m living doing anything? What can I do to make this world better?’ Yeah, I know alot of the music I write right now is very emo-acoustic style, but I want to get to the point where you can read the stories in the songs I sing and say ‘Wow, I never looked at this that way.’ I want my music to open people’s eyes and hearts and to address major problems in today’s society. To remind people that we are just temporary, that we are not immortal and will not last forever. So let’s try to do as much as we can now….
