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.

Dead Can Dance had a farewell concert in Radio City Music Hall, NYC...

and I thought they would never get back together again but alas they couldn’t resist. They have come back for another tour! I cannot wait to see them perform one more time, LIVE, for me and countless other lucky bastards! I wish a friend of mine in particular could be there with me to see it. I think she would love it.



Reach my Kickstarter goal of $4500 for Lexicons of Dueling. (read all 2 entries…)
WE DID IT! Not only did we reach our goal, we blew it out of the water.

For a while we plateaued at a little over $2,000. I was worried that we wouldn’t make it in time. With hard work, lots of phone calls, word of mouth, demos and pushing people who were interested but didn’t realize that there would be nothing without the goal being reached, we made it. Not only did we make it, we are over our goal by $800! Still 16 days left till our deadline. With people seeing the game is funded, more will now donate, realizing they will get something out of donating! It was hard work, lots of number crunching and lots of driving and pushing our hard work, showing people we have something special! EXCELSIOR! EVER ONWARD AND UPWARDS!



Reach my Kickstarter goal of $4500 for Lexicons of Dueling. (read all 2 entries…)
We are so close, if we nail this goal we start publishing our first run!

Here is a fun and fast paced game of strategy and heroics as two duelists face off and use real time strategy. This is a non collectible card game with a very unique engine and a limitless amount of directions we will take it. Please enjoy the video and see our demo on Kickstarter.com. William W. Refsland and Erich H Michel approached me with the info that they had put together a little company that is growing called MinMax Games. I said to Bill, “I have a game for you.” He grabbed it and helped me take it to the stars. With Bill’s engine and the direction we are taking this thing, I can’t wait to see where it will take us. Please take a look at it. I am so proud of us, we worked really hard on it. Spread the word, let me know if stores would like demos and let me know if you would like me to come to your house and run demos for you and your friends. We don’t need a lot to start, every little bit helps.
