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.

joie de vivreCostumes

One of the best Purim parties I went to, we all dressed as our inner Haman – the side of ourselves that we were ashamed of.

One fellow came in drag – said he couldn’t deal with his feminine side. Another woman, who is a nurse, and is very sensible and plain in how she dresses and communicates, came in teased hair, make-up and a tarty dress. I wore things that demonstrated my superiority over others: political buttons to show I was more politically correct; a mortarboard on my head to show I was better educated, and so forth.

It was an interesting party. 7 years ago

AgpiousPurim party

The last few years it seems that Purim has lost part of its magic. After high school, most people don’t get dressed anymore, it’s really sad. I think that people feel more comfortable wearing costumes in a party. We had one 2 or 3 years ago and it was great, so if I don’t find one this year, I’ll organize one. 7 years ago
