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.

I read:

The Woman In Black – which was completely awesome.

Chimps – not quite sure where the title came from… though it did turn into a play that spent a little time talking about racial relations. I’m not sure if the title is supposed to be offensive, or what… but there were zero actual chimps in the play. And barely any chimp-like behavior. 3 years ago

dramathemusicallove those Greeks!

Antigone – a classic, but always bums me out because I got invited to play Antigone and thought I couldn’t do it due to moving. Well, then life changed around after they had already re-cast and I didn’t end up moving until a week after the show closed. :(

But, I could have really done a horrible injustice to the role. Maybe it was fate to save my rep!! 3 years ago

dramathemusicalused bookstores FTW

Bought a collection of 4 plays for a $1.00 at a used bookstore. I think the book is called Coastal Disturbances. For a dollar, I’ll read just about anything… bring it on. 4 years ago

dramathemusical# 1... check.

I finished Our Town. I think it’s one of those plays that turns magical on the stage. But, at least I’ve read it!! Good for me. 4 years ago

dramathemusicalit's a start...

I went to a used bookstore and picked up Our Town by Thorton Wilder and the Oedipus Cycle by Sophocles. It’s a trilogy. I have already read one of them (Oedipus Rex) and I think I read one (Antigone) long ago and far away. I at least know the plot. But I’m pretty sure that one still counts. The last one I know I haven’t, so it will count (once I read it!). I started out Our Town and was liking it so far. I like when plays acknowledge the audience and the fact that they are watching a stage performance.

It’s a beginning… 4 years ago
