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.

Cause I've Got a Golden Ticket...

I wrote my first entry about this goal Jan 2, 2005 (remember 43 Things isn’t much older), and it was one of the first goals I added to my list of 43 Things. Now, thanks to Digital Web Magazine I’m going to realize my goal!

Will this year be the year?

I didn’t make it to SXSW last year because I was in the middle of a heavy time with classes, but I spent the whole week thinking of where I’d rather be. Organization for SXSWi 2006 is well underway and my desire to attend should be evident by my excessive sxswi06speaker 43 People tagging. It’s coming down to money (having a job), getting there (I can drive, that’s just more money really), time to go (getting the right job and/or classwork), and securing a place to stay (I have distant family in the area).


I attend a design college in Texas, earning a degree in Interactive Design and I’m trying to convince a group to go so we can go together.
