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.

Got it!
Not the one we really wanted first, but another that is just as nice almost. It does not have a bathtub or a courtyard. But on the plus side it is close to my work and close to all the cool shops and resturants.

Mostly I glad we got a 2 room place and that we dont have to worry about it anymore :) 9 years ago


the place we realy wanted has 20 other interested…and the aget handeling the property has not been very nice to us.

But then my husband found another place, which he went and had a look at yesterday. It was really nice and even though there had been many people looking, no one had put in a application yet. So there might be a better chance of us getting this place.

Added factors, this new place is closer to my work and also closer to the very hip and cool street in the area :D 9 years ago


Found this great flat on an online real estate page last night. I so want it!!! Now Im waiting for a decent time (9 am) so I can call the agent. Crossing fingers that its not gone already.. 9 years ago


got the job! so now we can really start looking for a place to live. Was lucky enough to get a job in a area where the rent is a bit cheaper then more popular aeas of the city. So we can afford a 2 roms flat :) 9 years ago


This is hard ! What we can afford and where we will end up living is so up to how much work I get. In the area I want to live the rent is so much higher…. It seem a bit useless to move to the big city and end up living 30 min trainride away from the city centre (where the cheaper appartments are..)

Crossing fingers ! 9 years ago


to early still – blargh….
the ones I have had a look at on the net looks oki though, some are even very nice and not to high rent.

will work harder on this at end of November when the appartments availble from end of December (when we need it) will be advertised. 9 years ago
