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.

Times Are a-Changin'

I’ve put QuenchYourFirst.com on the back-burner indefinitely.

The last couple months have been spent focusing on getting my MLS Flat Fee business up and running. That is, CharlotteFlat.com.

And it was put up finally a few days ago. We are in business! I’m checking this off my list now. Information product will hopefully soon follow, as I publish my eBook, “The FSBO Guide: 12 Steps to Attract More Buyers and Sell FAST”.

Stay tuned…

100 / 100! I'm done!!

I’m done, I did all 100 movies! Here are my thoughts on the final three:

90. Rashomon (1950)
94. The Elephant Man (1980) Much better than I thought it would be. Kind of hard to watch in parts, because of the ugliness of fear and hate. But a great movie overall. I recommend it.
95. The Great Dictator (1940) Another awesome Charlie Chaplin movie. The final scene has a great speech. And the speech, although made over seventy years ago, is incredibly relevant for today. Check it out (with music from Hans Zimmer added): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8HdOHrc3OQ
