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.

sleep under the stars
A question about this goal: Is this better done alone or with company? December 21st, 2005 14:46


Both are wonderful and enjoyable experiences…though each in a very seperate kind of way.


I don’t like non-commital answers.
With a girl is better :)

Niel is doing whatever it takes ...

I’ve only done it on my own, and it was good. I think doing it with somebody would be better.

Well, I would say that it is perfectly fine all by your lonesome. I sleep under the stars every single night!
I guess i’d be happy if my owner would come out here and sleep with me, but that’s what beds are for.

BELLALOUISA has gone to doggie heaven

My mom and I have gone camping together, and it is for sure much better with someone else.

This is so much better with someone else, I guarntee you…


With company of course! If you are alone, and some wolves come, you are screwed at that point. With at least 3 people, 1 can go get help, and you and the other person can stay with the wolf and keep it back. Unless you’re not in the woods and in your backyard or something. Even then it’s still better with other people.
