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.

A Room Devoted To Books...

I have for many years, dreamt of having a room in my house entirely devoted to books.

In my dream, the ceiling is fourteen feet high, and every wall is covered with shelves, and all the shelves are full. There is a loft-type platform where you can climb up and ensconce ones self in not only soft pillows, but other reading material. There are sliding ladders on each wall.

There is a comfortable sofa, and loads of huge comfy pillows. In one nook, there is a communal computer with a fast Internet connection, and is used for research purposes.

This is a room devoted to books, yes, but above all it is a room devoted to reading in comfort…

Alas… I need to get a house.
