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.

Sandy Gabriellistop modern witch hangings

Saw this story this morning and I’m concerned that the news site felt it was OK to put a Bible quote in the story that encourages the killing of witches. What century is this?

http://worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=58142
“Hanged witch in Massachusetts sparks allegation of ‘hate crime’
Halloween celebrated with sorceress in noose, pagan worshipper likens it to lynching blacks”.....

The story is of about a woman who practices wicca showing concern for the fact that her neighbor has a Halloween decoration of a witch being hanged in his yard. She asked him to take it down because it offends her and he refused. He is just ignorant.

The scary part is the story in the press. What were the editors thinking when they included this quote?

EricBackfiring?

I don’t know what happened, but I posted a blog on MySpace and one of my old friends tore it apart. It was about my hatred towards things teens do these days and she said I was just ignorant and I shouldn’t talk unless I’ve experienced it.

For some reason, I don’t think this one is going well for me, but I’m still working at it. 7 years ago

DaveSomebody once said...

... that poverty and ignorance are the two biggest problems humanity faces.

Whoever it was said that the problems are unsolvable, so it’s better not to try and instead to focus on something else (like curing cancer or heart disease).

But I think that they can be beaten. And if not entirely beaten, at least they can be reduced to the point that they are no longer the biggest problems. 8 years ago
