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 want to join Mensa

I’ve taken iq tests many times. It’s wierd to trust a gut feeling on “spot the pattern” and be right most of the time without understanding the rule. It seems I keep coming just under the qualifying, acheiving scores from 126 to 132. I just took the Mensa funtest and got 23 out of 30, it said there’s a chance I could make it. No surprises in the ones I missed, just in the ones I got without knowing the pattern, just going with my gut. Perhaps there’s greater innate intelligence than I know of and the only thing separating me from my soon to be genius friends is a better understanding of math.
