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.

Daniel SpilsBánh mì and my brother

I had lunch with Greg this past week. We sat outside along a retaining wall constructed of broken concrete slabs on a hill in Little Saigon while eating sandwiches from Seattle Deli. Coincidentally, my older brother Conrad and my Mom called and we all chatted. And for a few moments the sun even shined on us. 8 years ago

Daniel Spilshey, brother, let's get lunch!

I’d like to have lunch with my brother, Greg. Does next week work? I can ride the scooter up to you and we can go to Seattle Deli for a banh mi. Name a day. 8 years ago

homefrieswell, i guess I expected more.

look, the guy ate all the tofu. he actually pulled a piece out of his mouth that he’d just stuffed in there and tried to put it back on the plate, saying, “oh jeez, i’m sorry, like, I thought, you know, you were done!”

And then there was the thing with his look—he kept trying to check his look in any reflective surface he could fine. I mean, wtf. get over it dude: you’re going bald. 9 years ago
