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.

This is a sad day. I don’t think I’ll ever truly find a replacement for 43Things. It’s truly the nicest and most sincere corner of the internet.

Best of luck to all of you, my you always reach your goals!

Dave, Part 2 & 3

Dave has visited San Diego twice in the past year. Not to visit me, but was always kind enough to let me know he was coming. We went to the beach, chatted for a few hours, grabbed some lunch. A few hours later, we visited with his parents and sister at their vacation rental.

As I get older, you start realizing that your best lifetime friends are the ones that you’ve known the longest…some since childhood.
