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.

Straha"bringing it back"

The restoration project is waiting at my parent’s house, and I’ll pick it up this week. I’m really excited about getting this one completed. 4 years ago

Straha"just checked"

My “dumpster” bike is currently stored in my parents garage. The name is “Comet” and the color is gold. Sadly, I didn’t get any pictures.

The plan it to bring the bike back to Oakland over Thanksgiving Break. I work with a bike aficionado, and he offered to help me out.

Once it is fixed up, I plan on riding it to work at least twice a week. That should not only cut down my carbon footprint, but help with the human weapon goal. 4 years ago

Straha"from the ashes"

Back in 1998 I pulled an old bicycle out of an apartment dumpster. Yeah. I’m a scrounge.

I don’t remember the manufacturer’s name, but the bike is heavy, has a 1960s build, and built in England.

This is my restoration candidate. 6 years ago
