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.

Make people aware of the fact that Nelson Mandela was a terrorist and a criminal

Johan van der MerweMandela on US terrorist list

I saw in the news recently that the US was going to vote to remove Nelson Mandela from their terrorist blacklist. Apparently he has to get a special permit when he visits the US because of this.

A man doesn’t get put onto a terrorist blacklist just for being black. Nelson Mandela carried out terrorist attacks in South Africa and that is why he was not allowed to go to the US. Nelson Mandela was a dangerous man. He was put in jail for a reason and even the US supported it. 6 years ago

Johan van der MerweThe truth about Nelson Mandela

A lot of people seem to think that Nelson Mandela is some kind of hero without knowing the facts about him. The truth is that he advocated violence and terrorism. He arranged bombings and political violence. Hundreds of people died because of him yet today you will only see the good things about him in the news.

A man doesn’t go to jail for no reason. Nelson Mandela went to jail because of his terrorist activities and not because he was black.

The Church Street bombing is a good example of the kind of thing Nelson Mandela used to like doing. It happened in 1983 in Pretoria. A bomb was set off in the middle of rush hour traffic and the intent was to specifically kill as many white women and children as possible. 19 people died and over 200 were injured. 6 years ago
