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.

a whole lotta loans

With all the funds kiva has returned from the partially completed loans I was able to easily start 8 more and go from 35 to 43.

Well worth the effort of sticking to this and making regular contributions. I think that I’ve committed a more than trivial amount of capital to this project and although sometimes it’s hard to know if you’re really making a difference, I don’t think there are many better ways than by giving people the opportunity to help themselves.

10. Cobra

10. Cobra : di Andrew Klavan This is a translation of an english book, it’s one of those true crime stories about an incident that happened around the San Francisco Bay Area, mostly in Berkeley / Oakland. It’s about a renegade gang of bikers and their crime sprees, the wayward daughter of a rich local resident (Honey Graham) who takes up with the gang. The father has aspirations to run for government and can’t have his daughter going around causing scandals so he hires a private investigator who is every bit as rough as the bikers to infiltrate the gang and rescue his daughter. Amid all the drama the twist is that the daughter is playing nearly everyone and is a cold blooded killer. All in all it was entertaining enough, if a bit tawdry.
