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.

I think it’s important to get your voice heard, and make politicians aware of what their constituents think and want. I wrote about this a little here in my blog7 years ago

Tio D. working to end Huntington diseaseReceived a reply

Give props where due – my Member of Parliament wrote me a letter and apologized for being tardy with his reply.

Let me borrow a phrase that I attribute to Australians (but correct me if it originated elsewhere): Good on you, mate! 7 years ago

Tio D. working to end Huntington diseaseRemind me

to send lots of notes about term limits.

Received an email today about the hideous raise voted in by Ontario’s provincial government. A 25% raise. What the hell is that?

My response is that we need fewer career politicians. One way to do this is (follow the good example set by New Zealand and others) shorten elected terms to 3 years (from 4 in ON and some other places, up to 5 yrs in most of Canada) and then limit each elected representative to any 2 terms consecutive or not, doesn’t matter. 6 years max.

And by the way, get rid of the pension schemes for these people. The elected representatives should get pensions from their ‘private life’ work only. 8 years ago

Tio D. working to end Huntington diseaseNeed to write about

bag tax, on plastic bags but on bags given out by all retailers.

Also about lifting restrictions on what property owners can do with their properties in my city. Specifically, my city would benefit from higher density. What could help with breaking down the dependence on automobiles is the availability of more smaller food retailers within walking distance of more residences. This allows for more opportunities for small and micro-businesses which would be operated from home or very close to it.

My city could increase its density if it was easier to create an additional housing unit (like a basement suite) within one’s home. 8 years ago

Matt MaldreWe need a national firefighters day

Did you know that there is no National Firefighters Day?

Write to your elected officials asking them to start one. A sample letter is at my blog post: 8 years ago

Tio D. working to end Huntington diseaseSent more letters today

to my Member of Parliament, the Ministers of Health and Environment, as well as an unelected government official about proposed changes which would take away the traditional exemption granted to animals such as transgenic mice used by research scientists in the search for a cure for Huntington Disease. 8 years ago

Tio D. working to end Huntington diseaseGood start

Sent my Member of Parliament (federal government representative) a note yesterday. 8 years ago

Matt Maldrewhat should i write

Hmmm, I guess I added this goal, because it sounded like a good thing to do. But I need something I really want to write about first. Maybe I could just share with my elected officials what I had for breakfast. 8 years ago
