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 was going to give up

on this goal since Как ее зовут is giving up on it too, but I did read one of the books, so I’ll say that I completed it.

I just finished

Heart of Darkness. It was really good. I only listened to it on my commute and I carpooled many days and didn’t get to listen to it in one stretch. Then my wife ejected it from the CD player, and I had no idea which track I was on. I ended up just re-listening to the CD and found that I got more out of it on the second time through. I finally brought it to work today and listened to it while trying to figure out the errors in a project I’m working on.

If you want to impress anyone at your meeting, watch Apocalypse Now before you go, and quote it. The guys will love it.

This book is terrible

I picked up chapter 11 and a woman with big earrings asks the main character to be a reference for the defense. The defendant is the one who hit the main character in the head and knocked him out cold. Is this dumb or what. I put this book down and read something more realistic – Batman.

Красивейшая Богиня, you must really like a guy in the book club to want to read this book.
