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.

Straha"silent progress"

So none of the shit I wrote about for this goal has happened yet. I am now stepping back and looking at some ideas for 2014. I have several small story ideas, and am in the process of deciding which way to go.

I am making this a 2014 priority. 12 months ago

Kapitan NiemandPractising over the years

3:01 IIML Stex Football – Kapitan Niemand edit – Sometime in the mid-to-late 2000s, when the European Exchange Students surprisingly lost the annual football match to the local IIML geek team, they decided they needed to restore their credibility and regain lost pride. And thence came this short film, interrupting the academic “theory and history of football” with live action showcasing the skills of the new STEX Team against the backdrop of the sprawling IIM Lucknow campus. 14 months ago
