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 have invested..

..nine euro on a learn conversational french book! On page ten i have learnt the phrase “Pourquoi pas inviter Fabien et sa copine?” which means; why not invite Fabien and his girlfriend? Heres hoping i meet someone called fabien, and that i have something to invite him to!

How cool?

how cool would it be to be able to take part in easy conversation with people in a foriegn country? I have a smattering of juvenile french and literaly a few words of Italian. This will take effort and commitment. i think it will be Italian for me. going to drive Route66 in march. When i get back I will start on a linguaphone italian course. Will but it next week. Do it, do it do it!
