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.

Dawn MatthewsDefinitely Halloween weekend in Austin, Texas

and just another reminder that I am currently 20 years old.

In my complex all you can hear is “WOOOOO!” and then a loud bang, and then an even LOUDER “WOOOOooOOO!” Everyone else has been looking forward to this weekend for so long. About all I get to look forward to is the Halloween Candy going on sale Tuesday after it’s all over.

It’s just weird being stuck in the interim where I’m too old to participate in Trick Or Treating or Halloween Parties, but too young to go down to Sixth St and party.

Dawn MatthewsI'm sick of people not taking me seriously.

I’m just sick of being a twenty year old female in the world of business, which is dominated by forty to fifty year old men. I don’t think 21 will change all that much, but at least when I tell people how old I am at least they can’t scoff at me because I serve alcohol on a regular basis but can’t consume it.

What really frustrates me is that I’m one of the smartest business people I know, male or female, young or old. I have a level head, I know how business works, and I know how to TREAT people, employee and customer alike. I have the ABILITY to manage a business, both the numbers side and the people side. Most managers I see do NOT have the ability but simply the seniority. You put in enough years with a company and they’re bound to reward you with a position of authority, regardless of whether or not you have the ability or aptitude to do it.

Here’s for hoping another year on the calendar counts for something. When I was eighteen I was straight up laughed at, now that I’m twenty, I’m condescended to and looked down on. Maybe I’m getting somewhere? 3 years ago

Elven PathSeriously CAN'T wait!

I’m not an alcoholic, but I do like a drink every now and then. And I think there is just something cool about being able to buy booze whenever I feel like it! :P 3 years ago
