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.

Brian EggeMost shows were rather forgetable

After leaving NYC, I tried to figure out which theaters and which shows I had been to. Turns out, I’ve been to quite a few . I even found more than one theater that had since been demolished. I came to realize that much of what I saw wasn’t all that great, but there were some really good shows in there. I’m not quite sure if it would have been possible to skip the poor shows without missing some of the great ones, but I think I over did the ‘take advantage of living in NYC and being able to go see lots of shows’. I remember going to see a show at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre and trying to remember what other show(s) I had seen there. It turned out I had seen five other shows at the theater and couldn’t remember one of them without seeing a list of what had previously played at the theater. Sometimes I would go see a show because it was supposed to be short run sell out, etc.. Next thing you know I’m paying $220 to see Julia Roberts in “Three Days of Rain”.

There are so many other great events in NYC besides just the Broadway shows. 7 years ago
