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.

When I first committed to this goal, I just wanted any roadtrip.
Then I started doing some with my family and I was like, “Well, I’ll have to mentally modify that one to mean ‘with friends’.” But now, after driving 5.5hrs with my parents on our second roadtrip of the summer, really…I’m good.
My roadtrip desire has been satisfied at least for the next couple of months.
Now of course, this won’t mean I’ll pass up anything with my friends as some ideas have been brought up, but it’s not important enough to me any more to keep it on the list.

Good luck to all you others, and if you need a place to crash overnight on one of your own adventures, ring me up in TX.


He suggested going on a roadtrip beginning of August, just us
would I do it?


well, tomorrow concludes Roadtrip #1 of Summer 2007. Went to Panama City Beach, FL and back with the ‘rents. ‘Bout 13 hours straight.
Interstate 10 through Mississippi is absolutely gorgeous on a lightly cloudy day. The marshes in Lousiana, while logically a pain during summer, were lovely today, too.
Talked to mum bout the OK trip with Kay, and it’s a go. Ready to make plans.
Considering arranging another RT with friends to AL to see a friend who’s there all summer.
Already got an AL trip planned with the ‘rents for July to go to my dad’s HS reunion.
AL is priceless.


Goin’ to Stillwater in May and College Station in October??


oooooh man
been having intense cravings for a good roadtrip soon
I think a week in summer is going to have to get this one going…


Best friend spoke today about going on a road trip; just leave and go to a bunch of well-known colleges.
Would be nice, but I think we’d come too much to regret our current choice.
