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.

Visit Easter Island
Fantastic place!

It was one of my best trips ever. The Moai statues are incredible, but the island itself is also fantastic. It was a grate experience!

switch to gmail
GMail is much better now!

I try it before but end up going back to Y! Mail. A couple of weeks ago I gave GMail another chance and I am really liking it. Things like the RSS Web Clip and the spelling dictionary available in a lot of languages are very cool features.



Buy an iPod. (read all 2 entries…)
Have already got 2!

I started with the Shuffle and now I have a 2GB nano! “Impossibly small”… Impossibly cool ;-)



Buy an iPod. (read all 2 entries…)
mini or shuffle?

I am not sure if I buy a shuffle or a mini. The shuffle looks cool because of the size/weight and also because it works as a pendrive. But the min can carry more information (like my contacts) and has very nice accessories, like the iTrip.



Get a gmail account
Need an invitation?

I got my GMail account a long lime ago, but now I am willing to use it a little more ;-) If anyone needs an invitation, just ask…



get a yahoo 360 account
360 is cool!

I am a long time Yahoo user and therefore using 360 is being a very nice experience. I wish I blog more, but I’m working on this. If anyone needs an invitation for 360, just ask ;-)



Make Firefox my default browser
Nice free multi-platform browser!

It is very nice to use a good multi-platform browser. There are still lots of plug-ins missing, but there others already there that were only IE till some tome ago. Like Google and Yahoo toolbars, for example ;-)
