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.

As I was grabbing my coat to head off to work this morning, I saw the glowing purple light on the Wii console indicating that a new message had been received. I quickly powered on the unit and navigated to the messages center where I soon discovered that the Opera browser for the Wii was now available for download. Since work today was going to be very light, I delayed leaving to download the software and give it a quick test.

My first site to browse? Why my 43 Things/Place/People subscription page of course! Navigating with the web browser was surprisingly easy, given that I was using just a tiny remote control 10 feet away from the television. The font used on the subscriptions page, however, was a little bit hard to read.

I thought about writing this post on the Wii, but decided that I would soon get a little too tired pointing at the virtual keyboard. Maybe that’s a task for wasting some time during the holidays. 8 years ago
