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.

Almost there!

Oh, the last book. It’s so close. I will devour it as soon as I get it and then read all of them one last time. I feel a bit sad about this though.

Oh Harry

So, I read book six. It was good. I’m sure most people atleast know who dies. Well, actually alot of people die, but I’m not saying. That would ruin it. I am re-reading all of the books right now, really going through them with a fine toothed comb and let me tell you what… it is way foreshadowed! I think I was almost expecting it when it happened, but before I had read it, I was in denial about it. I don’t seem to have the same fervor I had for the books I had before. It isn’t that they are any less wonderful, it is just that it is almost over and only so much can happen in one book. There are sooooo many things that I would like answered and I don’t think all of them will be answered in the prose itself. It kinda takes some of the fun away.I don’t even feel like guessing what will happen next. I think maybe I have come to peace with the books…
