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.

Read more books (read all 4 entries…)

I think it’s safe to say that I’ve stuck with my plan to read more, I have been in a constant state of reading something for a year now, I think this is a good point to say i’ve done it. I hope to continue now…

Wi-Fi my Home

My wife and I each own laptop computers, and we have no desktop coputer at our house, and neither of us are very good at sharing anything, let alone the ethernet cable. So I think it seems like a perfectly reasonable idea to just wifi the two computers so we don’t have to be confined to the desk in the office, or have to share the one ethernet cable.

buy a car

I currently drive a 1994, ford taurus station wagon, with just under 250,000 miles on it. I think that is reason enough to need a new car.
