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.

it was pretty good, a bit touch and go at times but we got there in the end. The thing is that one has to have faith and never give up, these things always right themselves in one way or another and I’m just pleased it worked out in the way it did. You can never really tell, I mean , that might have been the last we ever saw of him, thus leaving us all with a feeling of ‘what might have been ?’. Hmmn. 6 years ago

cat burglars need to go underground for a while.
This has happened before. The good news is that Lupin / Leiermann / Thersites has the incredible power of reincarnation…
We all will have to wait and keep our eyes open for any new and eccentrically charming music fiends who suddenly show up on 43T

my list of subscribers has been reduced by one, and his name no longer appears on it. Maybe we have the first cyber murder on our hands…...... 6 years ago
he disappeared at the same time that the Tough Talented Tuscan went all quiet on us.
Incidentally, has anyone seen The Domina ?
