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.

have my own darkroom
New to darkroom and loving it!

I started getting into photography more seriously in early 2007 (Canon Digital Rebel XTi). Now I’m taking a 35mm film photography class at the local college. It includes a darkroom component (black and white photography), and I’m in love! I’d like to set up a home darkroom this year.

Good luck, everybody! :)

Complete Project 365 for 2008
I'm trying!

Work has made it tough, but I’m determined to post as many photos as possible in my first attempt at Project 365.

My photos are here:

Good luck, everyone!

Take a picture everyday
Project 365

I started Project 365 for 2008. I’ve missed a handful of days already, mainly during the week when my work schedule is too hectic to stop and smell the roses (or snap a photo of them). I’m determined to finish the year with as many photos as I can manage, though! I’m posting my Project 365 photos to:

and I’m blogging about the stories behind the photos at:
