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.

G0tj3nn?Was worth it!

I knew I had to complete this goal before reaching 30, and I now get to say that I did it! I showed up at 1PM but NYPD moved us around so much that someone showing up at 5PM could’ve been next to me. We were saving our spot around 44th on Broadway but wasn’t aware that we had to go through security check. At 3PM, we were moved to 49th and I knew that, with the amount of people there, I wouldn’t be around the ball. I went back to 43rd at 5:30PM and was very lucky to have been the first to go through a new security point. They placed us 40 yards away from the ball! I brought a pillow, snacks and drinks. Had a great time!!! 2 years ago
