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.

Did it again!

1. I flew over it on the way to the US. Amazing feeling – I – 10km over the surface of the ocean and the Titanic – 4 km under the surface.
2. I’ve been to the Titanic artifacts exhibition in Atlanta. Great experience – lots of cutlery, jewelery, parts of the ship itself and two a few meters long pieces of the hull :) When you enter the exhibition you get a boarding pass with one of the surnames of the real passengers and in the end there are two boards: one listing peope who died and the other listing people who survived and you can find out what was your fate. I survived.
There was also a nice quote: “In the end all of us are the passengers on the Titanic.”


I may say I’ve partly completed it since I’ve bumped into several things from the Titanic in the Maritime Museum in Greenwich :) It was a really nice surprise :) But I still hope that one day I will go down deep into the ocean and see the whole wreck…


Do you remember? 15.04.1912.
Today is the anniversary of the night that has changed the world.
