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.

Make a list of all the movies I have ever seen

Great Big FeetToo complicated!

Not listing the movies, just remembering if you have ever listed them before.

So I will change this to a new goal and just list movies as I see them from now on. 7 years ago


Great Big Feet101-200

OK, so here is the next list of the movies I have ever seen

http://www.imdb.com/mymovies/list?l=28002795

Not sure why, but as I made this list it seemed to concentrate on old war movies. I must admit I love old 40’s and 50’s war movies, particularly British ones.

There are a several other types of movies in there.

I’m sure there are at least 1000 other movies I have seen in my life and as I trip over them I will list them. It will get harder though, not so much remembering if I have seen the movie, but if I have already listed it. 7 years ago


Great Big FeetFirst 100

Ok, Here is my first list of 100 movies. There is no order to it, just as I tripped over them on IMDB

http://www.imdb.com/mymovies/list?l=28002820

I started with the first movie I can ever remember seeing: “Bedknobs and Broomsticks” and just let it run from there as linked with movies with the same actors, or sequels

Its interesting that this list contains such diverse movies as “The Godfather”, All Star Wars movies, “Teen Wolf” and even the soft-porn classic “Emmanuelle”

The last one I put on the list was “Richard III” so when I start my next 100 I will commence there. Maybe seeing where Ian Mckellan takes me from there. 7 years ago


Great Big FeetThis is an interesting goal

I’m not sure how many movies I have ever seen in my life.

Obvioulsy it will be easy to list movies as I see them, but trying to go back over my entire life of movie watching will be interesting. I’m hoping that as I go back and list movies it will remind me about different emotions that the movie evoked as I think about where/when/why I saw it and who I was with at that time. 7 years ago
