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.

From the archives…
I was bored at work earlier, and decided to poke around on my USB drive to see what I had. Misfiled within the “NYC pictures” folder was this picture of Minnehaha Falls, taken on a picnic I had there last summer. 2 years ago

Apparently my camera has been buried in my old room at my parents’ house for months. So THAT’S where it’s been!

The glorious day we had a couple of days ago made me feel that a walk was in order. I ended up at the Sculpture Garden at the Walker Art Center. There are, of course, many lovely things to see there, but the must-see is Spoonbridge and Cherry, a piece of art that has nothing whatsoever to do with Minneapolis, but has become one of its icons. In fact, I intend upon getting it tattooed on me eventually as a symbol of my affection for my city. 2 years ago
