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.

Last night my daughter and I went to hear a local band that we know well and love, Smackdab. The performance was at the Botanical Gardens in Buffalo. The gardens were lit up with colored lights and special effects. It was a magical setting. The only negative was that the crowd was not very interactive. I am used to seeing these guys perform to a dancing raucous audience. It was much tamer. 23 months ago
I started Friday night by listening to one of my favorite singers, who also happens to play the fiddle beautifully. She was performing in a duo with a male singer/guitar player. The atmosphere was relaxed and lighthearted. Another local singer was there and joined in for a few songs.
From there, I went to hear a young band that compares its style to The Red Hot Chili Peppers. They played with energy. I was there through the first set and would have stayed longer, but the bar’s atmosphere was iffy. I did enjoy the band, though, and would go hear them again. 23 months ago

There is a band playing with no cover (fits my budget!) I heard them once before when they opened for another band. I crave the stimulation of live music. I am going to try to find someone to go with me. If not, I may go alone. 23 months ago

Never heard of her? Yeah me either im ashamed to say. She sang with billie holiday,bessie smith,sarah vaughn. She sang all over europe in the 30’s,carnagie hall,the white house. She lived with satchel paige for a while,and she was born in my little home town. Where we now have a very small blues fest named in her honor. :) 2 years ago

I am making plans to attend several festivals this summer. The first one is in June and only 30 minutes from my house. I have never been to this particular one but have heard it is small and funky. I went to Bonnaroo with my daughter two years ago. It was so expensive and hot! Still I wish I could go again. I thought about it, but even if I volunteered it costs a lot to get there. I have decided to focus on more local venues this summer. I might be able to attend a bigger festival in the fall. 2 years ago
