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.

rockwilderZilker Botanical Gardens

During my stay in Austin, Texas where I attended Fantasticfest, I took some time to visit one of my favorite gardens: Zilker Botanical Gardens. It so happened there was some sort of garden meetup happening that day. I walked around the Oriental garden and the Rose Garden. After that I was tired, so I did not see the whole place, but I took some lovely photos to remember my visit, where I felt very meditative and grateful, contemplating my previous visit there with my daughter Camela and anticipating that evening’s events at the Fantastic Debates, where I would later see Keanu Reeves and Tiger Chen from “Man of Tai Chi”. 10 months ago


rockwilderI'm a Venus watcher

Yesterday I really enjoyed watching the Venus transit across the sun streaming live on NASA TV. I always enjoy star gazing or planet chasing. And my daughter even posted a very touching short film on my facebook page for me that was most appropriate to commiserate this occasion. It was based on a poem written by Derek Brown and made into a short film by the Holechek brothers. You can find it on you tube. It’s called “A finger, two dots, then me.” 2 years ago
