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.

Just okay.

Might have been better if I practiced the cooking techniques more. Oh well.

Sounds so good!

For those that don’t have recipes yet, here’s the one I plan on using:


7 oz bittersweet chocolate
2.5 oz light corn syrup

Melt the chocolate au Bain Marie and stir in the syrup. Separate into two saran wraps and allow to sit for 3 – 4 hours at room temperature. Warm for 5 seconds in the microwave before using. Kneed to make the Plastique roll able.


13.5 oz coconut milk
12.5 oz heavy cream
4 oz Jasmine rice
3 oz granulated sugar
Dash of vanilla essence

Mix all ingredients in a heavy bottom pan. Simmer over heat for 30 minutes stirring all the time. Cover and allow to cool.


Kiwi, mango and strawberries make a great color combination. About an hour before putting this dish together marinate each of the diced fruits separately in a very small amount of dark rum.

Roll out the Plastique in cocoa with a rolling pin. The ideal size is a finished 10” x 16” rectangle. Trim the edges to make it straight. Build as you would sushi spreading rice to within 1” of the top end. Place the fruit inside in rows and roll up. A palate knife is a good tool to help lift any Plastique sticking to the table. Set in the fridge and cut with a sharp knife. Present with marzipan colored to look like Wasabi, Crystallized ginger and raspberry sauce for Soy.

I plan on doing this this weekend! :D
