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.

Andy RobertsLast Minute Changes to Module

Passed on to me from Cohort 1 today, a message from Stephen Powell, which, just 1 week before the deadline, appears to make important changes to a module which has been running all year long.

“Not sure if this has been covered elsewhere so I will say it again.

1. The CBSP template has had a slight change. Previously at the top of the self assessment template it said ‘The Intended Learning Outcomes for this module are…’ It should have read The Assessment Criteria for this module are….

2. Note that ‘Select and negotiate appropriate tasks and meet learning objectives’ self assessmnet is about finding evidence from any of the level 2 modules. It does not refer to just this module.”

LindiopGot to get this done.

OK so the first section is all about taking resposibility for my own learning. I realised in a conversation earlier that the reason I couldn’t get started with this was partly that I’m quite angry about all of this. I have had no choice but to take responsibility and to modify all of the learning activities because they almost never relate to my context. So maybe I just need to accept that this is the reality. It isn’t going to change. I therefore need to ‘get over it’! 9 years ago
