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.

I’d like to tell you that I’m “no one, really” but that’s Knox Harrington, the video artist. If you note my 43things, I’ve got an odd life, but I’m not a musician. In 2006, I was sent to Europe, mostly France with stops in Prague, Italy, andd Budapest. Two years later, I was back in America and declared myself retired. No dice. I got shipped from my hideout in rural ID to Asia, mostly Japan with engagements in Taipei, Germany, and London. My contract is up and I’ve got one last commitment in Poland, a month in France and then (maybe) back to America. Tomah, WI was one of my favorite places as a child and I once took my old lady to Mt. Horeb. I’m glad to hear you have a child—I’m childless myself (a little sad about it) so never underestimate your child. Given the current state of the world, I hope you have secure work. If I can ever help… 3 years ago

I’ll send you something? Fun or cash? But it will be a while because I’m “mid-world-tour”. 3 years ago


How can I ever repay you?
You’ve done humanity a service. 3 years ago


Nope. Still a mystery 3 years ago
