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.

DoctorTeethI am HERE!

So yesterday I spent my first day at the San Diego Comic Con. It was a lot of fun, lots of people but not OVERWHELMINGLY so (at least not yesterday). I think it helped that I went to the New York Comic Con in October and I kind of adjusted my expectations after that (three times the people was a good estimate). I would love to write more and post pictures but my internet time and access is limited so this is all you’ll be getting from me today, sadly (or luckily). I will do another post with pictures, stories, and so on. But so far: so good! 3 years ago


Monday night I got my tickets to San Diego! (Well, technically Los Angeles, but let’s not bicker over details.) Decent price, good seats, direct flights, not ridiculous leave or arrival times, with plenty of “free time” days on either end. I can’t believe this is happening. It seems too good to be true. I hope this isn’t a dream. 3 years ago

DoctorTeethIt's happening! IT'S HAPPENING!

I went to the New York Comic Con last year, and while I was there, someone told me that anyone who considers themselves a comics fan REALLY needs to try and go to San Diego. Even if it’s changed a lot, and is crowded and unmanageable and focusing more on TV & movies than comics, it’s still kind of Nerd Mecca. And I’ve always half-heartedly wanted to go, knowing that it’d be really cost-prohibitive.


My friend, who goes to SDCC every year, told me that her mother had cashed in all her Air Miles points and booked a hotel for SDCC with two queen beds. And wanted to know if I wanted to go with her and her friend. So yeah. I have convention passes, I have a place to stay, and I have a general travel plan. I’m going to SDCC with two nerdy girls. Sounds good to me. 3 years ago
