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.

Tink"It was 40 years ago today"...

...well, maybe not today, but this year.

I was just a kid, and a hockey fan only by necessity (read: an obsessed stepfather and only one TV in the family).

Who knew that 40 years later, having watched the Leafs win the Cup would be starting to look like a “once in a lifetime” experience?

It could happen again while I’m still alive, but I’m not holding my breath. Go ahead, Leafs, prove me wrong! 7 years ago

sugarbabybabyAin't gonna happen...

in 2007! 7 years ago


It sure as hell isn’t going to happen this year! 7 years ago


Was the last time they won the Cup. Every year I am hopeful and every year…well…I am sure other Leaf fans know what I am going through…Will 2007 be the year? Will this be on my list for years and years and years? Gosh I hope not! It has to happen in my lifetime…it has to! 8 years ago


I’ve watched this team lose ever since I was a kid. They came close a few times in my memory – within one game of going to the Cup final. I still have memories of that. But I’ve never experienced the thrill of watching my team win it all.

I am fairly certain I’ll cry when it happens. I know it’s only sports – but the thread of the blue-and-white links all the years of my life. I can’t help but to be affected. The boy inside me lives on. 8 years ago
