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.

I am going to start with number 1 on the top 100 and work my way to 100 and then maybe down to 250. As there is a top 250 but i am only doing the top 100 at the moment. So i have now seen the top 3 and waiting for number 4 to arrive from lovefilm. Me and my friends are going to do all the movies. I am getting the ones that i ahve not seen and their are getting the ones that i have seen. Dividing the cost is great.



Friends

So some of my friends who are not on 43things has taken up this challenge as well. But they are going to start at one and work they way down to 100. Watching all the films even if they have seen it. Going round theirs today for stir fry and movies.
