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.

chaucer1234U2 concert

Saw them at the University of Notre Dame in their first American concert following 9/11. The context added emotional depth to an already emotive band. Well worth it!! 6 years ago


I went with my wonderful co-worker friend at the time, Helen G. and it was OUT OF THIS WORLD. Not only was the lighting awesome with these beaded curtain type things, but really, they played all their hits, and Bono’s One Campaign to end all poverty (interactive texting during the show) was awe inspiring. 8 years ago


It was a beautiful day!!!!! 8 years ago


Although it is too long ago. It was the love comes to town tour. I want to do it again. 9 years ago

redbanditaso I have completed a goal.

The concert was wonderful from start to end, if one forgives for the atrocities booked to open, a band who call themselves “The Music” (?), and Snow Patrol, yuech.
U2 played a gig with verve and penache, old songs, new songs, a very good mix. A great performance by Bono, whose voice I expected to be strained, but sounded really good.

Unfortunately, the same night, in the early hours of the morning, my aunt passed away. So that has more or less overpowered the impressions I assembled the night before, and so I am not going on about the concert.
If you like U2, I can only recommend seeing them better sooner than later.

redbanditathey are on ebay

My 2 extra tickets for U2 on 16-07-05 in Amsterdam. This will be my first ebay sale as well, and so far nobody has made a bid… :o( 9 years ago

mchoU2 is the one band I really want to see...

...and I’ve seen a lot of other bands (and the Foo Fighters were by far the best—a couple years back when they came “home” to the Patriot Center). Hopefully there’ll be around my area… 9 years ago


It won’t be a problem, because I successfully(!) queued for tickets in the cold in Febuary, and now I have two extra tickets to sell for the show on 16-07-05 in Amsterdam. Anyone interested? 9 years ago
