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.

LynnsanSomething to do in Winter in Japan

Sapporo is a great city and it swells and swells and swells during the snow festival. I lived there five years so I saw my share of these. It doesnt take more than a day to really see everything though. There’s a particular pleasure to seeing the snow festival, having a nice bowl of sapporo ramen or yakitori in a smokey little hole in the wall, and then tossing down a few drinks near or in Suskino. 8 years ago

spiredPop japanese culture plus some impressive displays

It’s a fun show. I recommend going the day before it actually opens because 1) it’s not as crowded 2) the sculptures are actually the best looking. The downsides are that there’s no music/skits going on for some of the sculptures.

Don’t expect lots of high falutin japanese culture. 2005’s display was full of Yong sama (bae yong joo)—I think I counted 18 of him and heard countless non-japanese asking who he was. Otherwise, domo-kun, anpanman, and hello kitty are some of the stars of the show. 9 years ago
