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.

Visit John F. Kennedy's grave

Something a little strange about me—I’m obsessed with the Kennedy family. Mostly the older (and dead) generation, but JFK, RFK, and even Teddy are just endlessly fascinating to me. JFK I relate to as a person. I mean, I know he was completely fucked up and cheated on Jackie all the time, and people like to pretend he was a drug addict and such. And it’s not that I overlook or condone his flaws, and would never date someone like that, etc. But as someone, a president, I find him so relatable and human and interesting. That despite all the work he put into appearing one way, he was almost the opposite of everything people thought he was. Healthy. “Vigorous.” Happily married. Religious. Plus way back in the 20s and 30s he had a gay best friend and roommate, and that’s pretty cool of a young man in those times. RFK is a really tragic figure to me, and by all accounts was pretty depressed and somber. And completely devastated when his brother died. Like, utterly wrecked. But the man, the politician, that came out of that? RFK, to me, will always be the best president we never had. I really believe our country lost more than we can really comprehend on the day he died. Even more so than when Jack died. RFK was going to change things, help the minorities, the underrepresented, the poor, the disadvantaged. I think our country would be a fairer, better place had he lived. And Teddy, well he was an AMAZING senator. He probably accomplished more than his brothers combined, and it makes me sad, makes me scared, that he’s not still out there, forming our laws, protecting our country. 3 years ago
