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.

IzanamiGlobal Warming Sucks

I have a happy glow hearing that the Northeast and the Midwest states are blanketed with snow during this holiday season. I’m sorry that it might mean pain and misery for those people, since I live in the South.

I hope that Glogal Warming is a hoax. But the scientists say….and then the other media giant says…...and then the tv show says…...What do we believe??

Could mankind really destroy the environment….or at least tip the balance in such a way that we infringe upon the health and biodiversity of future gerations? Could governments or corporations willingly withhold the truth for the sake of some greedy alternate plot? I hate entertaining these thoughts….but the information is just so in our faces!—>—> 6 years ago

IzanamiExperiment to save the Poor Drowning Polar Bears

Reading about poor drowning polar bears and melting ancient glaciers is quite depressing.

We have to think of ways to enjoy what we have while we still have it, plus participate in a method to reverse the damage that is already done.

If only the corporations could cooperate with the masses….maybe just as an experiment:

I think that the work week should be shortened by a day per month and the store hours should be decreased. Car exhaust is highest during commutes to work and errands to the stores, particularly weekend shopping.

Just as an experiment:
1.) a few longer work days,
2.) A few shorter work weeks,
3.) less shopping excursions
4.) Less cash expenditures
5.) fewer credit card debts (from less shopping)
6.) less gasoline consumption …hence less car exhaust.

IzanamiLosing Arctic Ice

The Polar Bears are going to be extinct. The natural habitat for the bears is slowly melting away. What can we do to insure there will be biodiversity for our grandchildren? Or, better yet, what can be done to insure that the ice doesn’t all melt and flood the continents? Is this all a hoax? Can we make this a goal? 9 years ago

IzanamiIt's Melting.... it doesn’t snow as much anymore. Seeing all the holiday iconic snowmen and horse drawn sleighs seems oddly ancient and idiotic.
We have penguins visit the indoor heated mall at Christmas in Dallas. It used to snow this far south, but it rarely does anymore. Winter coats on the racks will be at giveaway prices by Thanksgiving.
