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.

sitruunapuuBarefoot shoes

So for those who don’t know, I’m looking to buy something similar to the shoes in that picture. I’ve never seen barefoot shoes sold in Finland so I might have to buy them abroad or from an online store… They obviously aren’t the same as walking barefoot, but still an improvement compared to normal shoes. I’d especially like to use them for running because it’d be good to have some protection for my feet, yet keep the barefoot feel.

My friend already announced that she won’t spend time with me in public places when I’m wearing these shoes, haha… poor her, I’m always embarrassing her with something :D

My dear fellow Finns, have you seen this kind of shoes being sold somewhere?3 years ago


4 out of 6 family members got barefoot shoes. My daughter made it her science fair project that made it to Regionals. My hubby wears them overseas…military doesn’t like them yet. After 9 months, you wont catch us in regular athletic shoes unless its yard work. Our knees do not hurt and no shin splints! 3 years ago
