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.

Katie FabulousWent to Space--and saw an old friend

Like a lot of people, I felt like I had a tribe in college. Well, last night I went out and watched a friend from that tribe perform at Space, a performance space in Evanston. He was really surprised to see me, and touched that I would “drive all that way” (about 1/2 an hour) to see him. It was nothing really, a tiny bit of effort. We’re going to get the gang back together as soon as we can. Not sure if it will be before or after Nepal. 22 months ago

Katie FabulousFound this by accident

I LOVE THis goal! I found it by accident while just cruising around on 43T, and I gotta say, this is a huge goal for me! HOpefully, I’ll be able to tick it off in a few months’ time. And then just cultivate those relationships like crazy. 23 months ago

ErickrayTribe Recognition

You find yourself at a table talking about things that you know would make most of the people you meet and work with on a regular basis roll their eyes or stare at you blankly. Instead of that reaction, you see the people you are with nodding their heads or laughing along with you. You feel yourself drop the hesitation you normally carry around inside you and express openly what you love about what you are doing, what you are talking about, what you want and the direction you want to go. If you find something like that happening, now that you have just located members of your tribe.
