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.

live in a commune
Communal Living

My problem with communal living, is that I’m afraid of perverts; I do not want to come into contact with hippy wannabes who thinks communal living is all about getting stoned, having sex with anything that breathes, and refusing to bathe ( I’ve heard horror stories from people who have lived with these kind of non edible nuts ), my ideal commune would be a place where there are acres and acres of land, mostly used for farming vegetables, and perhaps some free range chickens. We could have a potluck diner twice or thrice a month , music circles, and safe , caring home schooling. A place where elders are respected, and don’t have to work, and children are safe..
This has been a dream of mine for years and I believe that there are others who share this dream as well. It’ll take lot’s of work, but it can be done.. I’m also interested in strawbale houses, but that’s another story !!! Earlier this year, I had wanted to live as a guest at certain ecco villages for a few weeks just to get a feel, of the lifestyle, but unfortunately, things haven’t worked out as planned ( jobless – hence, no money saved ),so perhaps in the nearby future I can do this, God willing …
