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.

красивейшая БогиняSpanish Meet-up Group

Today I’m trying to join a Spanish meet-up group. Ideally I’d rather a latin one, but they’re meeting next week in a really loud bar with dancing, so that’s not really for me.

Spaniards can be quite dry and humourless at times. (sorry to offend, but it’s a goal of mine.) Well, they have an online application form you have to fill in before you can join their elitist group.

This is their first question:
Q> Where are you from? If you’re not Spanish what is your special connection with Spain?
Oh please! “Special connection”!

I’m really wanting to answer with this:
“I’m a Londoner. I don’t know Spain but once I had a flight stop-over in Madrid for 5 hours and I fell in love with the airport. The MacDonalds’ coffee was great, the toilets amazing and I bought a straw donkey and a sombrero. I feel a profound connection with bull-fighting and Gibraltar.”

Then later it asks:
Q>”How did you find us? Who recommended you?”
I’m tempted to reply: “The flight attendant at Madrid airport recommended this Spanish group. He said you …”

Oh, guess maybe I shouldn’t 2 years ago
