Wall Wisher Pages
The first two issues of The Daily Find had their own Wall Wisher pages attached. However, it seems it might be better to collect thoughts over the lead up to the conference on a single page. Therefore, the NAISAC11 Wall Wisher Page for the Online Community is now open. It is very easy to use.

Mind over matter
Read this introduction then visit her blog as she leaves us with a question that would be great to ponder- Feel free to also leave ideas on the Wishing Wall
