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.

Bob1623I just saw

Sister Simone Campbell on the Colbert Report. (She actually got the best of Steven too.)

I’d really like to see a female pope. I think it is time. Sister Simone would make a good pope. 2 years ago

Bob1623On Bikes

Last week, me, my son and his wife went on a little bike ride back and forth between our homes. (They live about 10 miles from me.)

It made me think, wouldn’t it be nice to see our whole family riding together on bikes?

And then, wouldn’t it be nice to see our neighborhoods riding together?

And then, maybe both our towns people getting on bikes and riding together.

And how about seeing everyone in Rochester NY on bikes riding?

And then maybe, everyone in New York State getting on a bike and riding all together?

And then everyone in the whole United States of America getting on bikes and riding.

And then to see everyone in the whole world, riding bikes together?

Wouldn’t that be cool to see?

Because did you ever see anyone on a bike who did not have a big smile on their face? 2 years ago

Bob1623Flying Cars

I remember as a kid (and that was a long time ago) magazines and TV said we would soon have flying cars and highways would take on a much different look.

Well, where are the flying cars? And how about jet packs too? Maybe that is a different entry. 2 years ago

Bob1623Winter X Games

in person. I watch these on TV every chance I get, but to see the awesome things these athletes do in person would be so cool.

I want to know how they learned to turn gravity off. 2 years ago

Bob1623My Friends

I want to see P and M work out their differences and become the happy couple. They are so good for one another; they need each other, but there is something that makes things not work.

I hope they figure it out. They are my good friends (P may be the best friend I have ever had) and I want them to be happy. 3 years ago

Bob1623Ride Her Bike

I want to see my wife ride the bike I bought her last year. She said she really wanted a bike, but got scared the time she tried to ride last summer. I hope she tries this spring.

It would be nice to ride together. 4 years ago
