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.

ubermickAmazing performances!

Saw ‘em twice – at the 9:30 Club in DC, and at the Warfield in San Francisco. I have to agree with deadweightloss, the acoustics matter – the Warfield show wasn’t nearly as good as the DC show – but the guys are phenominal on stage anyways. The price of admission is worth it when John Butler does his instrumental “prayer” Ocean… 7 years ago


I’ve seen JBT 6 times and every time they have put on an amazing show and surpassed the previous. I have also had the opportunity to meet the band on 2 separate occasions and can’t say enough about how nice they all were. 7 years ago

deadweightlossBetter recorded

OK, maybe we had a bad venue. We saw him (them) at the ANU in Canberra. It was noisy and smokey and the accoustics were just bad. I was disappointed, because I loved the recorded versions, and I had images of watching his fingers over the strings. 7 years ago


I’m doing this!!

They’re playing in London on the day I hand in my undergraduate disseratation. So I’ll be handing in my work then running to the trainstation to catch the show. Exciting! 7 years ago

ScottMaclureJBT: Awesome Artists AND Entertainers

There are some bands that create great songs but can’t entertain worth a damn: it’s like listening to their CD live.

This is definately NOT the case for JBT, who I went to see last night at the Horden Pavillion in Sydney, Australia. I can easily say they’re the best live performance I’ve ever seen!

For every song, John is handed a new guitar or instrument (banjo or bongos), they extend the solos out forever and they have a talent for building their songs up to a crescendo that results in the crowd going wild and you get that rush of ‘cool’ when you listen to these guys.

The highlight for me was probably the drum solo – the drummer Michael (I think that was his name) just went crazy for about 10 minutes – I actually had a rush of endorphins when he finished. Amazing!

Anyway, if you’re not heard them, I highly recommend their latest album, Sunrise Over Sea – and if they’re playing live go and see them! 9 years ago
