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 did it!!!!

I took a motorcycle course this past weekend. I should have did this years ago! I went down to the DMV on Monday and got my motorcycle endorsement. Definitely recommend this!

Bike Night

I saw my motorcycle friends last night at bike night. I try to head out to these events because it keeps me focused. They talked me into signing up for motorcycle class anyway this summer. I had been worried about money, but who cares about that. I’ll find a way, or a way will find me. I miss riding… even if I was just a passenger.

Group Rider Course

I went to my first Harley Davidson course today….Group Rider Course. It was all about how to ride correctly in groups (duh). Anyway, I became an expert at giving hand signals while maneuvering a metal foldup chair. I had lots of fun and there was great practical info from experienced riders.

Learn to ride a motorcycle

I ride on the back of a Harley…and love it.
I want to drive.
I’m sure it’s a control thing.
