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.

Jeff Welton55 to go

The Silence of the Lambs (1991). Very interesting and creepy movie. Interesting how you can like the “villan” so much. Also, after watching the complete Monk series it is really odd to see the Captain on that show be the serial killer in this movie. 23 months ago

Jeff Welton56 to go

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975). It was cool to have read the book first (another goal on my list) and not the differences. Really, no one else could play McMurphy but Jack N. 2 years ago

Jeff Welton57 to go

2001:A Space Odyssey (1968). Very cool effects. Not quite sure how they did all of them. Got my wife and I debating the meaning, which I guess was Kubrick’s intention. 2 years ago

Jeff Welton58 to go

Easy Rider (1969) Interesting piece, especially when you consider how much of the work the two stars did behind the scenes. Not quite sure what it was trying to tell me, though, other than watch out for hicks with shot guns. 2 years ago
