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.

rocklandI just need some rhythm...and timing...and the ability to multi-task

Just a few years ago I despised electronic music. I thought it pointless and repetitive. I then started dating a trance DJ and, after a short period, moved in with him. Needless to say, I heard it all day and night long. I started to develop a grudging liking and an appreciation for it. However, after my first rave, I fell in love. It clicked for me. Since then, I’ve found that some of the most profound and beautiful pieces of art are techno tracks.

I have all these ideas for sets that I’d really like to see expressed, but it’s hard to verbally communicate what I’m looking for. Now, I’m not aspiring to Sandra Collins, or even DJ Pollywog status. I’d just like to be able to show an actual DJ what I’m talking about when I describe my idea, so that they could run with it and express it fully.

This goal will probably be a long time in the making, as I am no longer dating the DJ and indeed, live several hours away, and am no longer able to take advantage of his expertise or equipment. Which means buying some cheap stuff and a reasonable record collection for myself and sorting it out as I go. 7 years ago
