    99 Days: The second round of 99 days ended on March 27. In celebration a theme session for both of first two rounds (or 198 days) was held on March 31, 2012 at 13:00. Wol recounted how the project started:

    Wol Euler: so one afternoon of the Halifax retreat, nearly a year ago

    Wol Euler: Pema and I went for a walk, down to the river and back

    Wol Euler: Pema was encouraging me, trying to help me out of the doldrums

    Wol Euler: looking for ways to get me meditating more, get me back in touch with myself
    Wol Euler: the question was basically "how to get me to do this every day?"
    Wol Euler: we came up with the idea of the wiki-based 99 Days project
    Wol Euler: every day for 99 days, do something of value (the same thing every day, or same-ish)
    Wol Euler: and then post a comment on the wiki
    Wol Euler: making it a group commitment

    As for the name of the project:

    Wol Euler: There's a commonly held belief that it takes 100 days of practice to establish a habit
    Wol Euler: but since we like 9's we started at 0 and went to 99
