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.

BookmonkeyOh Well

I went out of state Thursday and Friday. Then I had to work Saturday…So it just wasne’t in the card at this time. But I’d like to in a 43 meet up soon. 7 years ago

FaustusI had

the privilege to meet Bookish and Sara in person, and I’m really happy that I got to know them better. We chatted about different “things” around a little table in JavaMonkey (sadly, no high-chair for me), tried to recruit new 43Ters from the people on the table next to us… just talking and laughing (no, I won’t share any of the secrets; you had to be there :)).

I had a good time, and I hope Bookish and Sara did too. :) 7 years ago

thatgirlsabSorry I missed y'all :(

I ended up having some stuff I couldn’t get out of today. How was it?? 7 years ago

FaustusTentative plan...

Date: Saturday, November 24, 2007
Time: 2:30PM – ???
Location: JavaMonkey @ Decatur

Did I miss anything? Does this sound fine to everybody? 7 years ago

bookishso... can people meet in the Decatur area at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday the 24th?

(i’ll be there for a wedding in the morning, and a reception in the evening, so it might be easiest for me to stay in the area…)

would that work for folks? 7 years ago

bookishpossible change in plans?

Sorry folks… it turns out I waited too long to buy my plane ticket, so I had to accept the times the airline gave me, which has me leaving Atlanta fairly early on Sunday morning (10ish)

so…. there are two options.

1. Since Sunday afternoon is good for most of you, you all should meet up then anyway, and know that y’all have my virtual hugs…

2. meet up around 2ish or 3ish in the afternoon on Saturday the 24th of November (that will be in-between the wedding and reception festivities…) 7 years ago

bookishoh no!

it looks like i’ll have to leave Atlanta fairly early on the 25th in order to get anything close to a decent deal on my ticket!


What to do? 7 years ago
