Hi all, First of all, thanks a lot for the many good wishes that I received on- and offline. Let me answer some of the questions that came up in this thread.
(1) WMF grant money The Wiki Education Foundation received a grant to get things off the ground last year as part of the Projects and Events Grants process. The Wiki Education Foundation has already reached out to a major donor in the United States and is confident to get third-party funding in place by the second quarter of this year. (2) Office space One of the first things on my to do list will be to start looking for office space in San Francisco. From February 18th on, I plan to work out of my living room (yes, my wife knows). (3) Recognition At this point, the Wiki Education Foundation would like to focus on programmatic work. Like many organizations that are not formally recognized Wikimedia organizations, we will be part of the global free knowledge community. We look forward to participating in various education and free information events consistent with our mission, including through participation at Wikimania and working closely with like-minded groups within the United States, Canada and other countries.
