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’ve got a French language CD and an Italian Language CD I’m hoping to atleast learn the basics before my planned trip to Europe next year.

I bought some CD's

well I bought some CD’s for French and Italian. It will be a challenge to learn both at the same time, but I’m up for it actually I took French is High School so hopefully this CD will be a refresher course. I have over a year to master the basics of the languages I think I can do it. it will make my trip next year all the more enjoyable if I can communicate

going to try

well in about a year and a half I’m going to France and Italy so I’m going to get a few books or tapes to try to atleast learn the basic phrases I’ll need for my trip

I want to do this

I want to learn another language most other countries people know two languages I wish America Emphasized learning other languages in school besides the two years in high school. I took French, but I don’t remember hardly any of it. I have relatives that live in Brazil and they speak Portuguese (spelling?) so I’d like to maybe learn that, but I’m also interested in French and Spanish.
