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.

speak english
Greatest language ever

Easy grammar, so many words, everybody speaks it around the world, just unavoidable to speak some if you are going to travel in a country whose language you cannot speak.
It’s also the best way to communicate all over the internet, to know new friends, writing a blog. This kind of stuff.

Live in Milan

Maybe it’s just that I’ve been living here my whole life so far and I’m Italian myself. But I don’t like Milan that much. Milan is without doubt the most livable city in Italy, but that doesn’t make it worth living here… Maybe if you are learning Italian, studying fashion or something like that.
Milan’s weather is horrible, people are unpolite, prices are always the highest in Italy.
Also “La Milano da Bere” (Milan by night) isn’t that good as it is believed to be abroad.
Sforzesco Castle and the Duomo are the only two things I love staying in Milan, cities like London, Tokyo or New York are far more stimulant from any point of view.

have a one night stand

Maybe I didn’t take the right side of it, or simply expected to feel like something else. But as far as it concerns my experiences, one night stands are to be avoided.
They are some kind of emptying, sometimes they lack humanity.
Maybe it’s just me being not mature enough to enjoy it. I don’t know.
