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.

I’ve been designing apps for the past year. Interested in start-ups and maybe in the future having the ability to design AND code my own work. I can do HTML, CSS, and some PHP…but have no idea about more hardcore code, like Objective-C. 2 years ago

Well, it took me 12 months of learning to do this. I was a ex support worker mum and I had never programmed a computer before.

First I learnt the c programming language by watching youtube videos of richard buckland teaching c programming. Then I bought a few books on objective-c. I also followed the new boston’s objective-c tutorials on youtube. I currently have 4 apps in the app store.

I have recently started learning cocos2d which is a way to program games for the ipad and iphone. It is totally cool and I love learning it. 3 years ago
