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.

If you still think you have to be ‘cool’, you’re living in the ‘90’s. It’s time to move on. It is, and has been the ‘cool’ thing for years now to be nerdy, geeky, techy, otaku, obsessed, and especially yourself – in other words being nerdy is not nerdy – it’s the natural personality – stop pretending and putting up a false front. Be silly, make goofy noises and rave about the slobbering idiocy they spoon feed you before the movie starts in the theater! Let your natural personality come out. It feels better, and you have more fun. 7 years ago


lachuckI maintain a movie review blog

blogger, maintained by google, allows anyone to maintain their very own blog for free. There is nothing more nerdy then dishing out your opinion on random stuff in the blog-o-sphere. If you go to blogspot.com it is very easy to get started. If you want some ideas check mine out, www.bottsatthecinema.blogspot.com 7 years ago

pyro_mandidnt work out to well...

well my plan didnt work out exactly as i had hoped. im not world dictator yet…. 8 years ago


pyro_manOMG

i just made the perfect plan to travel in time!!! and im telling everyone that by tomorrow i should be world dictator. Which i will be, because the plan will not fail. No one should worry, ill be a nice dictator. But i just realized that planning on how to travel in time and then saying that im going to be world dictator and saying that my plan is flawless is kinda nerdy, so i figured i should say something about it on here. 8 years ago


pyro_mani wanna go back....

i used to be nerdy, it was pretty awesome. But i changed in high school and now im semi-cool. I want to go back and revisit my nerdy side, just to compare and see if being “cool” is really any better, i personally dont really think it is, i think its just that the “cool” people are a lot more arrogant and think of themselves highly, causeing the “nerds” to think lower of themselves, when we are all just equal. one or the other isnt really any better, you just do things differently, and you can have just as much fun being “nerdy” as you can being “cool” 8 years ago


WasillaKatieDoes it count....

if you own 3 iPods, and the only accessory you’re adding to your brand-new, ordered direct from the factory car is the Music link for iPods? 8 years ago


bluebutton32We'll see

Well, I don’t know, I’m not nerdy in that typical nerdy way I think. But, the other day I went to work and my shirt that I was wearing was a little bit shorter than I would have liked it to be, but I like my shirts a little bit long, but, I don’t know, I just kind of went with it. I think what this goal really means is to kind of realize the clothes and hair don’t really matter very much. I have always kind of thought this, but, I do also put a lot of effort into finding clothes that fit me in the most flattering way possible. Which I don’t think is bad, but, I don’t know, to just be comfortable in the shirt that is too short, and know that no one else cares or notices. I don’t know. 8 years ago


bluebutton32Sometimes..

I wear socks with sandles.. In public. 8 years ago


bluebutton32All my pants are too short.

Whenever I notice this, which is pretty much everytime I sit down, I feel like a dork. I’m starting to care less and less. I still don’t think I have the nerdy look, which is fine because it’s not how I look, but I want to be able to not care if there is some sort of external factor making me look/feel less than gorgeous. 8 years ago
