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.

Bill WHere's the deal

I printed out form and went over every question on each of its eleven pages with Carmen. http://www.cbs.com/primetime/amazing_race_application/TAR_12_Application_Form.pdf Some of the questions were difficult to answer, like “Would you rather compete to win $1 million or share it equally with nine other teams? Why?” It seemed designed emphasize the show’s competitive premise. This is reality tv, after all. In the first “cycle”, it seemed like the premise of the show was a little more dignified than it is now. The emphasis was on travel, its difficulties and its rewards, and the cameras were there simply to record the humiliation and jubilation that comes with all adventures. Maybe the logistics of the show didn’t work, I don’t know, but now, it seems like there’s a lot more emphasis on the competition, the personalities, the conflict.

Then there’s the language in the waiver. The show owns and asserts control over everything you say.

I have no idea why reality tv is so often so bad. Watching people struggle to accomplish a worthwhile goals is fun, but watching people bicker and connive in pursuit of money (and not that much money) isn’t.

So, I guess there’s watching a reality tv show with a travel angle, and then there’s adventure travel, and then there’s being on a reality tv show. I want more adventures, but being a contestant on reality tv has no appeal at all. I can watch the show, but I don’t know if I can be on it. 5 years ago

Bill WI really like the first "season"

Where they dropped the contestants, blindfolded, in the middle of a featureless Mongolian plain. I think we (my wife and I) would be good contestants. 9 years ago
