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.

I am 67 and my half Brother is 21 months younger than me. He was adopted just after he was born my mother never told me about him I only found out because my cousin let it slip one day when we were talking. He was born on the 29 December 1947 at the Osborn Nursing Home in Thetford Norfolk and his name then would have been Cuthbertson. I have tried to find out as much as I could but have come to a dead end. The only thing that I have is his Birth Certificate. I have another Half Brother in the U.S.A I found out about him in 1995 and we have been doing a lot of catching up since then. 16 months ago

I’m fifteen and I’ve been wanting to meet my two older brothers sense I was about seven, but my family never has enough money to hire someone or anything.
My eldest brothers name is Daniel Edward Bosco, born 3/10/82, and the second eldest name is David Nathaniel Bosco, born 5/25/84. I don’t know if they’re names have changed or not. This is all I know about them, but I really would love to meet them someday. 3 years ago
