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.

isnt it strange that as the day blooms in summer we look out the window and think “ooh shes going to be a warm one id bettter put the air conditioner on”. Now air conditioners pump out hot air so in a round about way wouldnt the heat produced by these also have an effect on the outside air temp.? thus making it a hotter day leading to hotter night and hotter following day and so on. and the power used to run all of these machines is contributing to the temp rise also. so we’re screwed…....................... we cant do much as they make sooo beautifully cool, so to stop the waste of water we should at least collect the fluid produced by these monsters and use it to feed our gardend or the like.

mtngoat RIP Comitted suicide has gotten 2 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
