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.

At least I can feel the way my finger dancing on the top of piano keys and feel the beethoven’s way doing it. Beets FTW! 3 years ago

schase10353Learning now

I’ve played inconsistently since I was 5 years old but the hardest song I tried before taking on this feat was the first movement. I’ve forgotten it over the years but I want to get it back soon. However, I’m more interested in the 3rd movement now, honestly. I’ve learned the first part of it and I’m not too frustrated except that I can’t read notes at all. Which SUCKS. 6 years ago

SheddingPlaying this piece

I can read music (albeit.. very slowly) I’ve memorized the begining but I can’t continue further until i’ve perfected the first piece. However, every single time I try, it will not come out perfect.. I will either miss a key, or I can’t make the transition fast enough to make the sound flow. My piano has very hard keys (more so than some more expensive pianos I’ve used) could this be the culprit? 7 years ago

Kimmi445Moonlight's Sonata 3rd Movement

Let me be completely honest: I learned how to play this piece when I was 12 and performed it at 13. It took me a whole year to “perfectly” learn the 2nd and 3rd movements. When I first started learning to play this song, I had had already about 8-9 years of piano experience. I’m not saying it’s impossible… I’m just saying it’s extremely hard to accomplish, but, I praise you for your efforts and it’s definitely worth it! 7 years ago

The_Kat_in_London....and keep practising :)

I stopped practising when I didn’t have a piano anymore. I found a piano shop which allowed me to practise in their storage rooms, later found a local primary school that let me use the piano in their music room after hours, then a church…

But I haven’t got enough time to keep it up, and I found that I can’t just sit down and play away anymore. So back to step one: working through it at snail’s pace, in the private back room of a local pub :) 8 years ago
