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.

I purchased a handsom Personalized Flask from 7 years ago

spookyboyThis one's actually from a while ago

It was probably the nicest way to get a hip flask. I was a groomsman at my oldest sister’s wedding and they gave me this flask with my initials on it filled with like 200 year old rum (The memory may be tainted but I remember it as some of the best rum I’ve ever tasted). They have remained married for nearly eight years; good on ya… 8 years ago


Mine was from that Target set they made for Fathersday and included a cordura case so security thinks it’s a CD player. 8 years ago

Buster BensonDebuted on Friday night.

I took my new cheap flask out for the first time this last Friday. Drank out of it outside Saito’s as I waited for my late guests. It was enormously satisfying. Also came in handy in the taxi, and at the gallery. It’s a bonding experience to share a drink amongst friends on a fun night out… I think this was definitely a good move. 8 years ago

Chadwick DahlquistConsider it an investment

When you think of a hip flask, what usually comes to mind is the cheap stainless steel crap that you find in head shops. This bothers me. A hip flask has so much potential as a beautiful piece of workmanship, and I’m sure there was a time when they were considered as such. Google searches will only come up with retailers selling expensive versions of the stainlesss steel design. The only place I’ve seen cool designs is on Ebay. Most the ones that catch my eye are vintage and from Germany. So I’m adding this to my list of things to do during my upcoming vacation there.

I want it to be small and simple and well made. I want to have some character, so I’m thinking—used. No emblazoned flaming skulls, nascar logos, confederate flags or tazmanian devils please. 9 years ago
