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.

jtinskyGetting my AJAX on

Ever since I first saw gmail and google suggest I thought this new (then acronymnless) thing was just the kick in the ass the web needed. I tried a few times to make it all work before the groovy new javascript libraries were available with no joy.

Now I’m using jQuery for a few things and have a real understanding of how and where I can use AJAX on a real live project I’m working on.

I just purchased jQuery in Action which is a clean easy to read explanation of jQuery. So far I’ve been able to perform some minor javascript magic but no actual AJAX. 6 years ago


AJAX is just so…cool. Fun. Useful. Something that someone who fancies herself a web designer should probably know. 6 years ago

dirgonJavascript, AJAX, and JSON

I have been spending some free time working with javascript and JSON the last few days. I have to say that it is quite interesting. I am starting to get a little deeper into AJAX now. Did someone mention XHttpRequest? 7 years ago
