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.

Romilly MacAranIn the glow of Burning Man

I’ve been contemplating the marking of flesh. Among My treasured posessions, the greatest of which is My servant, exists a gorgeous hand-wrought brand with My single, unadorned initial. The finish is rough, the handle decoratively twisted. The brand, it was a gift from My servant. Its impressive heft and substance, its potential, send shivers down My spine each time I hold it. And I do so, often. When I run My index finger across the rough-hewn initial, press it to My thigh, leave a faint indentation, I can almost hear the sizzle, see the smoke, smell the sear as My eyes lock with My servant’s. In his eyes I find all that he is and craves to be. And in Mine he finds My love, My possession, My resolve. Those eyes, O/ours, hold all that W/we need to do this, to share this agony and fulfillment. In the heat that passes from My hand, My brand, to his flesh, in the excruciating gasp of completion, the outcry of ecstacy, the inevitable flow of O/our tears, W/we will seal a bond that is visceral, eternal. I know He wants this more than anything. And so do I. 6 years ago
