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.

participate a flashmob in Melbourne, Australia

I would love to see people just lying on the steps at flinders st station, everyone ‘play dead’ for 1 minute?

learn portrait photography

I understand how you feel… I’ve resorted to ‘paying’ my almost 3yo, with bribes of lollies, outings or even visits to grandma… just so long as he will not hide from the camera, or glare at it… I really do need to find someone else to practise on…

get back into school
I have a five year plan :O

Okay, Getting back into school would be the first goal – well the second, I’m hoping to get a grant to pay for school, that should probably take first place. Although i am determined to go anyway, which sort of makes the grant a wish… hmm

Anyway, if I have my way, this time next year I will be completing my 3rd short course, possibly my fourth, which will help me with applying for the diploma of arts (applied photography) in 2008, such a long way away, yet I know it will be here in no time.
