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.

lilcuteyLaughable, really ....

Someone, somewhere has designated July 20, 2006 WORLD JUMP DAY. Apparently there is a plan for the majority of Earth’s population to jump at exactly the same time, thus lurching the planet into a new orbit …. Seriously.

Simple physics and common sense would tell you that this won’t work and personally I would have researched that fact before setting up such a snazzy little web site and selling t-shirts, but that’s just me.

But despite all that common sense and what-not, over 464 MILLION people world wide have pledged to partake in this ‘earth moving’ experience (sorry, pun intended). These sorry fools are going to be sorely disappointed when all of this anticipation leads up to that big moment and then ….. nothing…..nothing but the warm fuzzy feeling that you just jumped simultaneously with a zillion people from all over the globe.

Which ….actually…... does sound kind of cool. I checked my calendar ….. looks like I’m free that day ….
