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.

make sure the people i love, know it


read more of the books i own

I live in a house full of novels, poetry and non-fiction, and yet so many of the things I pass every day heaven’t been given my full attention, a travesty the nature of which only became apparent to me after flicking through and then compulsively absorbing Khalil Gibran’s the prophet.

watch more black and white classic movies (pre-1950)
Cosa nostra film noir ^-^

This was a genre I loved as a small child, with the belief that bogart and his contemporaries were the coolest guys ever…

dance like no one is watching
With the proviso that no alcohol or other aids are involved111

This is easier at times than others…

Dance in the rain

It occured to me that rain is an acquired taste of an environment, but when the pathetic fallacy is just right…

save everybody

This one doesn’t really bear me explaining, but I should probably chalk up my little road to redemption every now and then…
