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.

I know I'm not awesome,

but I do feel like I’ve definitely improved, so I’m marking this as done even though I plan on continuing to improve!

There’s an awesome riverbank park thing 5 minutes away from our house in Oxford. I visited this afternoon to do some reading.
When I sat down on the dock, this goose swam right over to me and watched me, waiting for food I presume. I didn’t have anything to feed him! I felt so terrible! He floated around at my feet the whole time I read my book. I finally got up and picked some berries off the tree for him, but he didn’t really like those.

Sorry, goosie.

Trafalgar Square

I don't know

if this is any good, but I like it.

I just thought it was convenient

to have a sign that says “The New Yorker” right next to a serious icon of NYC.. the ole Empire State Building

Not sure why I like this photo...

those are two of my cousins. We hung out in NYC for a weekend, and that’s the Manhattan skyline as seen from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade.
