Overall I like the statement on wiki. Quick question though: "rigorous
research" can be very time consuming, very expensive, and probably
difficult to do well given Wikimedia's vast number of languages, number of
projects, and multiple platforms. Could this be made more nuanced?
Other than that, I like what I see here.

> Hello all,
> Over the past few months the Design team members at the Wikimedia
> Foundation (user experience [UX] designers, design researchers, user
> experience engineers, and communications) have been working with Arthur
> Richards from the Team Practices Group to identify the high-level themes
> that motivate design at the WMF. These themes have been turned into a brief
> statement of purpose, whose intent is to articulate the vision and purpose
> behind design at the WMF. This statement will influence the future
> direction of design work.
> At this point the stakeholders are ready for a review of the draft
> statement. The purpose of this review is to gather a common understanding
> of its purpose, and to identify any key themes that may be missing from the
> high-level discussion. On the wiki page for the statement, you'll find
> these themes and what they encompass in the "Background" section. If you
> have an observation, comment, or concern about what is listed there, please
> bring it up on the talk page. If it is relevant to the review and
> understanding of the statement, it will be looked at for future drafts. If
> there are comments about design and the design process in general, we'll
> hold on to those until a time when they can be addressed for the broader
> discussion of design in general.
> All that said, here are the links:

> We look forward to seeing you on the wiki.
