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 Still Can!

So I brought a couple of knitting needles and some yarn to work with me tonight, and I remember both the knit and the purl stitch! It came back really quickly, just like riding a bike! :) So I’m considering this done

Have I completed this?? We'll see!

So I have finished two scarves in the past, and then for some reason I just stopped. I think I’m going to bring some knitting to work tonight and we’ll see how it goes. If I can remember the two basic stitches I learned before then I guess I’m still on track. I want to pick this up again a bit more once I’m out of school… My goals within my goal are to make my stitches more even and to learn how to switch colours.


I was having some trouble with the instructions in the book, so my friends mom helped me get started! I know how to do the basic stitches, but still havent quite qrapped my head around the casting on and casting off part. But I’ll get there!!


I was really excited about this! So i bought some needles and yarn, and a handy how to type book, and I’m all set to start, and since I have the whole day off tomorrow, I might as well get started! :D


When I do, I’m making a Harry Potter scarf…

maybe, if i learn fast enough, I could have it made for when I get the last book. except for that will be in july, so a wooly scarf may be inappropriate. We’ll see…
