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.

DanT1999Lunar Eclipse 2014

I shot this photo of the lunar eclipse at 12:08 AM on April 15, 2014 using a Canon 7D set to ISO 6400 with 400mm lens. It’s a little bit grainy because of the high ISO and the fact that I wasn’t using a tripod; I just stood halfway outside my apartment door and aimed my camera at the sky hoping to keep a nearby tree and the second floor of the building from getting in the way. I don’t do much shooting at night so I’m sure I could have used better technique, but I still like how the redness of the moon was captured. I didn’t even know there was going to be a lunar eclipse until some people at work were discussing it the previous morning, and I thought if I couldn’t fall asleep I would check it out. For once, I’m glad I couldn’t fall asleep. 6 months ago
