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.

Be there...Burning Man 2009...for a 43Things Convergence!
well, i *want* to do this, but unfortuntely, i can't :(

as long as i’m still working as an accountant and doing month-end, i can’t go anywhere the first week of any month. it blows, but it’s my reality right now. if something changes, i’ll let you know!

find work I'm passionate about (read all 11 entries…)
not sure if this entry belongs here or where

but this is the book i am reading right now:

i have concluded that this is the greatest book ever written. i’m not talking great literature, but i am talking about philosophy. reading it makes me feel like what i want to do (say screw it all) is truly possible.

learn norwegian

my mom picked up the basic norwegian 10-disc set before we went over there in ‘07 (gosh, that sounds like so long ago) and i just finished lesson ten. I am thoroughly enjoying this. gotta call or do some research to figure out which set to get next.

See all entries ...
