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.

So close....

The fifties are all that need to be organized now, then into the album everything goes! Should be done very soon.


Totally forgot… I have to print the slides we want for the album. Getting closer at last!

Almost there...

Everything is scanned and organized by era… Now just have to check and make sure no one else has any photos floating around then into the albums they go!


NO albums left, one bag of slide boxes down! Just one dress box of slides and I am DONE.

Halfway there?

I have two of three albums scanned and boxes of slides left over. I’m going to work on slides tonight! We will see how much I can get done.
