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.

Possibly going to the Van Gogh museum next week. The good thing is the museum is open from thursday to sunday till 22.00.

I’m really looking forward to this :). I’ve never been to the Van Gogh museum before, which is kinda silly really since I live so close by. 5 years ago

AnnemaartComing to a museum near you...

Starry Night is my favorite Van Gogh painting. Fortunately for me, it’s coming to the Van Gogh msueum here in Amsterdam, which will save me a trip to the US to see it. 5 years ago


I have always loved that painting but thought it would be for ever before I would get to see it (I live in Texas). The MET did a traveling exhibit so they could remodel(I think that is why) and the only US stop they made was Houston, Texas. Why they decided that was it in the US I have no idea. The rest of the exhibit was going to go to Europe. Well some of my friends and I drove from DFW to Houston and it was just the best trip. The painting was so beautiful and the colors are not what is portrayed in all the copies. The blacks are more brown and the blues are more green. 7 years ago
