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.

office is set up, too!

my office is in the space more commonly used as a dining room. a friend suggested i move the desk to face the window and now i face a beautiful tree which houses a little squirrel family. i watch them sleeping in a little hole while i work. one big huge important change was getting rid of the huge monitor that was old and scratched up. i do a lot of photo editing so now i am enjoying a flat screen lcd monitor and its slim shape. i fought with the idea of making this purchase, but it was a really great decision.

also, i built a shelf for cds that faces a pretty bookshelf. the balance in the room is very good for my scattered mind! i’ve also brought a few plants into the office, since i now have the space to do so!

studio is set up!

it’s fairly organized, and kindof clean. needs a few hours of attention, tho.


I want to:
