A brief "me too" thanking the outgoing board members for their great work. I've on occasion been skeptical of Wikimedia, The Incorporated Body (not as a movement or goals, but just in the way I'm skeptical of any growing, professionalizing/institutionalizing organization), but I think the Board over the past few years has put forth quite a bit of effort in making sure numerous stakeholders and goals are represented and reconciled. I'm most familiar with Phoebe's tireless work (which is truly impressive), but what I know of Arne Klempert's and Ting Chen's roles is quite positive as well. So, thanks!
