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.

My friend Walex and I started an electronic music duo this winter. We’ve been learning ableton and we’re working on getting gigs. We’ve already played at the 9:30 club (voted #1 club in america in 2008) and we’re poised to play many more. Check out to see more. Basically we just got a copy of Ableton and a midi controller and we just started experimenting, all the time. Learning new ways to create different sounds, finding different riffs that work together. We are by no means done with this task, but we’re off to a good start. 4 years ago

GoonerballIm on my way...

I really want to do this, I wouldnt mind doing it on my own but duos music just seems more classy and fuller than solo artists. Justice and Daft punk are 2 of my favourite duos, unbelievable mixes on their alive album and I went to see justice at oxegen here in ireland a couple of weeks ago… best night of my life. Well, I’ve started creating music at a friends house, he’s recording riffs off my guitar and messing around onn the computer with them but I want to learn all of his side of it and then learn how to mix it up on decks. Just wondering, does anyone know what Gespard Auge’s job is in Justice? Xavier seems to do all the work and he just twists a few knobs here and there and then waves to the fans. let me know if u know, thanks… 6 years ago

dok73Start an electronic music duo? Yes!

I am currently making a living doing something similar to electronic music. I play Harmonica, sing, percussion, bass, my partner plays guitar, sings backup. I have just recently purchased a Handsonic 10 and will be incorporating it into the band soon I hope.
we use backup disk that we either buy or create ourselves and we do covers of all different genres. I know you all may be thinking of keybords and beat boxes and all that and we are very close to that. The way the world is chaning, I beleive there is lots of need for all forms of entertainment, so get started, you can quit your day job if you do well, look at all the DJ’s that are working, the karaoke nuts, it’s worthwhile.

I was thinking about joining the “start a band” goal but frankly, bands suck. Better to be in a (vaguely heterosexual) electronic music duo! A la Yello, Sparks, etc.

In case’s somebody is interested, I’m into drum machines, synths, etc, the geeky stuff. So, I can be the moustached one in the duo (see my “grow a moustache” goal). 9 years ago
