Below are some thoughts I have possible themes that can be included in the strategy update. I'm sharing these in public in case other Wikimedians would like to discuss strategy.
1. Design experience Move the design and intuitive ease of use of the Wikimedia user experience away from a 2000s experience and toward a 2020s experience, both on desktop and mobile platforms. 2. Social experience Decrease the frequency and intensity of negative experiences, and increase the frequency and intensity of positive experiences. 3. Governance Decentralize the functions currently managed by the Wikimedia Foundation to reduce dependencies and increase resilience of the Wikimedia projects, communities, and affiliates. Empower Wikimedia affiliates and the online communities to be capable of continuing operations, fundraising, and growth even if WMF becomes incapacitated or corrupted. 4. Openness Transform WMF and the affiliates into models of open governance and open culture, particularly concerning Board activities and the use of financial resources. Make information be public by default rather than private by default. Proactively publish the expenses and compensation for all individuals and organizations spending or receiving funds from WMF and other Wikimedia affiliates. With limited exceptions for discussions for which there is a strong reason for confidentiality, livestream all Board and Board committee meetings of WMF, chapters, and thematic organizations. 5. Finance Acquire adequate financial resources to achieve goals 1 through 4 within the lifespan of the strategic plan's time horizon. I look forward to hearing the thoughts of others in the months ahead, both on Wikimedia-l and on Meta.
