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.

My company has a tiny record label with an office in LA, and at the end of January I got to go along with my boss and the CEO to help gather some info for a few days. At his insistence, we added a day at Disneyland. That part was cool, although the park was smaller than I thought it would be. Once I wrapped my head around it though, it was pretty great. I even went on all the rides that the guys did and was served orange soda from a metal jug. The highlight may have been the real orange trees that grow in front of Tomorrowland. Yes, I am still a food geek.

Hollywood was far less glamourous than I expected though. It was kind of bleh and dirty and not terribly interesting. I did check out a music showcase at the W hotel on our last night though. It was a cool experience and slightly more swanky (even though the show was in a makeshift tent just outside the lobby).

I think I’d go back to LA, but maybe check out some different areas around the city next time. I’d also plan to attend some show tapings or something. Still: a very worthwhile experience. It was nice to have it feel like proper summer in the middle of winter. 2 years ago
