New year, yet another year... you certainly do not have a LOT of time. But you certainly have ONE minute. Without giving it long thinking, drop there the FIRST wish that comes to your mind for year 2009 regarding our projects and helping the world to be a more informed/educated place. Rule: no more than two sentences. Anthere 01:00, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

  • There are a number of loose ends policy wise where some clear direction from the Foundation Board would be helpful. I wish they would take those up and clarify matters. Oh, and I have a horse already. I'd rather have a pony though. ++Lar: t/c 06:34, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
    A pony? Good to know - the search is on! (careful what you wish for!) - Epousesquecido 13:57, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

    I'm not sure we can directly affect world peace, but it's nice to dream. :) Kylu 06:29, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
