Hi folks, I would like to thank all of you who have contacted me on and off-list with your warm wishes.
Working with you and so many other community members is what made this job so special for me over the years. I will miss our collaborations and hope we’ll get a chance to work together again down the line. And yes, I hope to be able to contribute new content as a volunteer, now that I will have more time for this type of work. In the meantime, I invite you to continue to work with others to grow ‘a culture of kindness’ (1) in all that you do, so that our movement can reach its full potential — the real opportunity ahead is a lot more about nurturing a welcoming and productive culture than it is about building technology, and we sometimes forget that. Thanks again for reaching out to me, and for being such great partners — I look forward to more great collaborations with many of you down the line. :) Regards as ever, Fabrice (1) A Culture of Kindness https://blog.wikimedia.org/2014/12/23/a-culture-of-kindness/ <https://blog.wikimedia.org/2014/12/23/a-culture-of-kindness/> P.S.: Sorry about my previous email, which was intended to be sent privately. ________________________________________ Date: Mon, 22 Jun 2015 20:50:55 -0300 From: Oona Castro <oonacas...@gmail.com <mailto:oonacas...@gmail.com>> To: Wikimedia Mailing List <email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>> Subject: Re: [Wikimedia-l] Farewell Message-ID: <CAOLju7C9=mqh3quc0u+m-9u0u5evfo2vxozgrhddfofow7g...@mail.gmail.com <mailto:CAOLju7C9=mqh3quc0u+m-9u0u5evfo2vxozgrhddfofow7g...@mail.gmail.com>> Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8 Dear Fabrice, it was a pleasure to collaborate with your work.
