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.

25 Days In...

Haven’t really done much towards this goal. I’m not even sure if I still want to pursue it since it seems less entertaining to me now then becoming a writer. I guess I’ll keep this goal up here though in case I do decide to get back to working on this.

I mean, a giant robot corporation would be cool and all, but the work involved getting there would be pretty boring. I’d rather work on a novel instead.

Guess I’ll see what happens…

11 Days In:

I can’t honestly say I’ve made much progress on this front. But hey, this is a long term goal and even minor progress is important right? Wish I could say I’d made some sort of minuscule amount of progress but I really don’t think I have.

I’m being too lazy! Guess I should reassess my business plan or something. And by “reassess” I mean “make one up since I never bothered to make one in the first place.”

I guess before I can make much headway on this front I’ll need to improve on a few other things. Like say, my knowledge of Robotics.

This goal is not impossible, damn it!

So it begins...

I am going to create the company that will be the largest manufacturer of robotics for all practical applications.

At least, that’s the goal. :)
