Gnangarra, I agree with you about the vision. I think that where we see things differently may be in the discussion of how we achieve the vision. Individuals have a lot of freedom in the Wikimedia community, but organizations exist in a complicated world with real money, real laws, real people, and a variety of circumstances that can help or hinder progress. We want to share the sum of human knowledge, and to do that effectively requires a coordinated effort. Wikimedia is an incredibly complicated collection of entities, of which affiliates are a part.
I am very mindful that real resources (time and money) are involved in Wikimedia, and I would like those resources to be used wisely, transparently, and fairly in service of the mission. I need to depart thread so that I can focus on other projects, but I plan to return here in a week or two.
