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.

Launch "Progressive Student" Training Camps
Training Camps For Progressive Students

The word “camp” doesn’t really adequately describe the concept. However, I intend to launch training seminars for high school and collegiate age students that are interested in progressive politics, candidates, and political issues. The Republicans and “right” leaning think tanks and other organizations do an excellent job of promoting their goals and objectives among the USA’s younger generation. Further, they are highly skilled at training such students in the mechanics of politics, and have done so since the early 1980’s and the beginning of the Reagan administration. I would like to launch constructive programs that counter these measures from “the other side.” With my experience within the public sector, the private sector, and working with young people, I am eager to put together thought-provoking programs that can have a lasting affect on the participants and their communities.

I have enjoyed visiting many different lands throughout the world. I would like to re-visit many of them, including China, Russia, Brazil, Argentina, Oman, Scotland, and more.

Time to learn at least two additional languages. The world is much smaller than it has ever been, and both personal passion and my involvement in business globally compel me to study at least two additional languages
