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.

joyjoeiThe Reader by Bernhard Schlink

i’ve just finished this book this morning. i wasn’t surprised much while reading it as i watched the movie first. but the book was still impressive and highly recommended. i enjoyed the movie hugely and that was why i wanted to read the book. i wanted to understand the characters and absorb the story more. but i felt that the german version would be much more wonderful than the english translated one. after watching the movie for 2 times, i saw the thai version at a bookstore and was tempted to buy it. but i’d rather wait to buy the english one and i was fortunate that my friend, pu, could locate and buy it for me from bkk. it is a short book and i could read through it in 3 days as time permitted each day. if anyone was interested, i would suggust read the book first and then see the movie. i think it would make much difference than doing the other way round.. 5 years ago

joyjoeiLoving Frank by Nancy Horan

this morning, i finally finished this book. i’d read through the last page; not just the story but the interview and the background of the book and it took me 3 weeks to finish it. i enjoyed it tremendously. it was well written and beautifully described. i love this style of writing. i could see pictures and felt the story. while reading it, i had mixed feelings; agree, disagree, sad, jolly, pity, bewildered, shocked, etc.. i can’t say that i agree with what mamah and frank decided to do with their life but one thing i like to say.. they really lived their life to the fullest and chose their own happiness.. i like this and not many people have the urge to do so..
before writing in this post, i seached for more information and looked at the pictures of the house that frank built for mamah. god! it is amazing. it looks ordinary in this age but it was extraordinary then.
at the end of the book, i didn’t expect it to end like that. i was so shocked and sadden with the tragedy all of them had encountered.
from my view, i think it is an amazing book and i will read it again.. to relish the beautiful language.. 5 years ago
