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.

Re-read Banana Yoshimoto’s world by Giorgio Amitrano


Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

I read it in English, here is my little review:

As many readers have already highlighted, this isn’t an original novel. Meyer used a banal narrative scheme: the bad inaccessible boy who falls in love with an average girl. His name is Edward and her name is (Isa)Bella. The difference from any other love story is that he is a vampire and she is a human being who often loses her balance (like she can’t take two steps without falling or injuring herself).
They go on staring and looking at each other for pages. She is constantly struck by this godlike boy and hypnotized by his goldish eyes (or black, it depends if he’s hungry or not) whereas he is torn by the idea of involging Bella in his life.
More trouble to come…
This novel may not be very original but I love it. And that’s what matters. Now I can’t freaking wait to read the following books.
