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.

Ever watch Survivorman?

Don’t you want to smack him sometimes?

What the heck happened here?

I take some time away, and when I come back, hello color explosion! Don’t we look fancy. And not that I was ever very good with the 43people aspect, but now I can’t even find it. Help me out, give me the scoop…what do you think of the new site?

What was the last

big surprise you got? Was it a welcome one?

Is the waiting

really the hardest part?

Do you name your cars?

I didn’t name my first two, but I’m currently very happy with Gia Rose, my dark red Grand Am. She just needed a name. Have you ever named yours?

What's your earliest memory?

Mine is my brother teaching me how to climb out of my crib…step on stuffed animals, get leg over bar, swing, hang, drop (not that it went that smoothly when I decided to actually try it).

ooooh, widgets!!! has gotten 11 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
