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.

I heard one day that George Clooney tips twice the bill, so I wanted to randomly tip something outrageous. One day I was at a bar and had maybe $20 in drinks. Feeling that this was the moment, I left $100 tip and walked out. I wrote on the check “This is not a mistake. Thank you so much for your great service! :)”. 11 months ago

Still looking. Nope, still haven’t found anyone worthy enough.
(P.S.: I always leave tips, since I spend 4 months every year with 4 waiters that just LOVE it when you tip them, but also love to curse when you don’t- thus, I always leave tips, just not “huge” ones) 23 months ago

I have been trying, but no waiter has been “worthy” enough to get this treat, up until today, that is. I will keep looking, though! 2 years ago
