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.

live in New York City
After spending a LOT of time there

for the last two years, I’ve probably spent about 5 months there collectively… I don’t know if I can do it. I love being there, it’s amazing… but it’s so hot and gross and humid during the summer. I don’t know if I would be able to give up the weather in Santa Fe. Maybe I’ll get really rich one day and live there during the fall and winter seasons. haha

donate hair to Locks of Love
why not?

I did this right before I graduated from high school. I saw it as somewhat of a small stepping stone into my adult life… I hadn’t had a cut that significant since I was in the fourth grade… I cut off 18 inches and sent it away. I’d say do it as often as you can… It doesn’t cost anything but shipping, and if it can make that much of a difference in someones life, why not do it?

Make a movie
So little time...

As college students, we really don’t have a lot of time to make long movies. So we decided to start making previews instead! We’ve only done a couple so far, but they are turning out fairly well. Come check us out on myspace!> If you are on myspace, befriend us!
