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.

Back to Nature

I decided that reading ‘The Origin of the Species’ indoors was wrong, after all, the book is about the theory of evolution of the world all around us, not of the 4 walls of my apartment around me.

So this morning I packed a blanket, pillow and lunch and headed down to the Botanical Gardens. I went for a walk around the rainforest section of the Gardens and then up to the waterfall – very relaxing. I then found a nice tree to sit myself under for the rest of the afternoon. I finished the notes by the Ed. and now am into Darwin’s actual work. I’m actually enjoying it more than I expected too! I think from now on I’ll only read ‘The Origin’ when I can be outdoors as today was lovely.


I finally picked this up off my bookshelf and started reading it. Mind you, I’m not even up to Darwin’s work, I’m still getting through the Editor’s section at the beginning. I have a feeling this one might take awhile, but I’ll get there…

Tidd's is BACK! has gotten 26 cheers on this goal.
