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.

Harmless DilettanteI'm an Autuer

I’ve been wresting with the iMovie ‘11 learning curve. I’ve managed to negotiate a truce between it and my old JVC camera footage. I’ve now made videos of each of the three phrases of Ferra’s AHS mare performance test. I’ve also made videos of both of Penelepe’s dressage tests at her first schooling show. The most fun thing has been choosing the music. The least fun has been trying to master iMovie’s interface and video organization. I’ve picked up the “Missing Manual” and “Teach Yourself Visually.” the Missing Manual is much more in depth, but dry as dust with less than helpful graphics. Think it’s going to be more useful as a reference manual. 3 years ago

Harmless DilettanteHalf Way There

I think I’ve got the camera sorted, but iMovie is going to take some time to master. Guess I’ll need to go through the how to book I bought step by step. And use a tripod for filming. I’m not exactly a human Stedicam.

I hope video editing will be like photo editing: steep learning curve, then all the programs work pretty much the same. 3 years ago
