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 meet the man

who wrote these lyrics:

Don’t come closer or I’ll have to go
Holding me like gravity are places that pull
If ever there was someone to keep me at home
It would be you…

Everyone I come across, in cages they bought
They think of me and my wandering, but I’m never what they thought
I’ve got my indignation, but I’m pure in all my thoughts
I’m alive…


honestly everytime i listen to the live oct 3, 2005 concert i am taken back to the energy filled arena. i was literally in the tip top section so i could hardly see amidst all the smoke from the partiers below.. but i don’t care. i was in the same venue as mister eddie vedder. it damn near breathtaking. i felt alive :)

top of my list

have you ever had that one person touch your life, in a minor or major way, who just affected you more than you could describe?
well this is at the top of my list because eddie is that person for me. i guess it sounds stupid and childish but i dont care. i dont have to explain myself to anyone :)

can’t buy what i want because it’s free

kelbelle has gotten 14 cheers on this goal.
