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.

The Goodbye Girl

I was really pleased with this one. Academy Award winners are usually dramatic and dark and serious, but this movie was more on the light side and I enjoyed Richard Dreyfuss’ performance. It was witty and fun and endearing. SPOILER ALERT – I’m a sucker for romantic comedies but was a little disappointed that this movie followed the typical story line of a couple first hating each other and slowly coming to love each other. And the ending was kind of cheesy.

Kiss of the Spider Woman

Just finished this movie. I love how the story line is so original. I really appreciated that when you think they’ve told just about every story out there within the 100+ years of film making. I thought it was a beautiful story and very intriguing. I cared a lot for William Hurt’s character and was sad and surprised by the ending.

Mystic River

Okay movie. I give it a 8 out of 10. I don’t know, just don’t see Sean Penn as a serious actor. Well, I take that back. I’ve seen “Milk” and I thought he was very good in that. Just didn’t believe his dramatic acting in this movie.
