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.

Iron ManI had handcranked ice cream

at the rendezvous in Forest City. We ate it with a piece of lattice crust apple pie baked in a dutch oven. Twas all very delicious. I think Cottonwood has had the opportunity to have this pie at least once, but not sure. If he didn’t try theice cream there he lost out big time. 7 years ago

Kitty Is Backi missed it

I thought about ice cream. Does that count? And we’re going to make homemade ice cream this weekend so that should more than make up for it! 7 years ago

Air07Sorry I missed

I hope everyone had a great time! I had forgotten that was the first night of our bowling league and was not able to make the event. I ate an ice cream sandwich later that night! 7 years ago

joie de vivreMissed the 20th

Sad but true, with my new job, and then chairing a volunteer board meeting that night, I never had the chance to eat ice cream with you all.

Instead, I’m sitting here at my desk, before leaving the office, eating a Haagen Dazs Dark Chocolate Chocolate bar. It’s pleasant enough, but I’m sad I sort of missed the party. 7 years ago

lynnerhad to have a few more scoops.

this time, three twins ice cream. local, organic…think early ben and jerry’s, before they sold out to unilever. i even know these three twins and they are super cool people.

thanks to mindy and gemm for the good old-fashioned ice cream social. 7 years ago

Lost WayfarerIt was lovely

I love ice cream and it helped cheer me up a bit as well. I saw so many lovely flavors that I never knew exsisted.

Now, I will have to try to eat some of those newer flavors when I have time. 7 years ago

I was at Moorenko’s enjoying a double scoop – black raspberry chocolate chip and coconut – and reading email on my phone when I saw a posting on this goal.

My only regret is that I didn’t get hot fudge… oh well, next time! 7 years ago
