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.

Be A Couchsurfing Host
It's all about trust, fun and learning. =)

I’ve hosted 6 couchsurfers since I join this great community. They come from Taiwan, Hong kong, Malaysia and America. I didn’t thought it would be unsafe, probably because I’m also an out-going person like most couchsurfers. Actually if you worry about safety problem you may go to his/her profile and check references to help you make decision.

Every time I spent time with couchsurfers, we usually go and have a tour around the city, have a drink together, talk about culture difference, and share each other’s interests. It’s a great way to make friends, have a different view about this world, and also have a lot of fun.

take toefl and get a high score
start now

I reviewed the vocabulary about astronomy today & learned some knacks about listening. There is no complete schedule for the preparation, I kind of feel that I had to plan properly before going for the exam…

watch all the episodes of lost

So far I’ve finished season 1-5 and the first 4 episodes of season 6.
I’m so stuck with it but at the same time, keep being so confusing about all the mystery…

See all entries ...
