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.

Learn Dutch (read all 9 entries…)
Eindelijk

I am getting reasonably good. In the village where I live I speak the local creole, fluently. So most people don’t want to speak Dutch with me (as I don’t speak Dutch as well as I do the native language) but when I am in the capital city or anywhere else in the country I can do pretty good.

I have even had long drawn out conversations (on limited subject matter – but it is something).

I am hoping to test at an Intermediate MID or High in October and then make it official.



explore the amazon (read all 3 entries…)
So what counts?

I travel a lot around Suriname, in and out of the jungle. I see crazy creatures (rhinobettels, jaguars, monkeys ect…) I eat strange things (Pirrahna, Iguana, Armadillo -which is very yummy). And I have spent quite a lot of time in the rainforest, which is part of the Amazon… but not in the river basin…

So does this count? I don’t know



learn to speak another language (read all 6 entries…)
Well I did it again!

In the last few weeks I have started to really pick up Dutch in addition to the creol Sranan Tongo I first learned when I moved to Suriname. So I am now tri-lingual… WHAT FUN!
