For nearly a decade, I worked (sometimes closely, sometimes not as closely) with Michelle Paulson. She dazzled me with her brilliance and her care for Wikimedia and Wikimedians around the globe. Anytime that I needed someone to fight with me because a Wikimedian was in some way threatened, I never had to check - because I knew that Michelle was either there ahead of me, or right besides me.
She is unwavering in her care for Wikimedians - she feels that calling very deeply. Wikimedia owes much to her. But speaking personally, I've seen the toll that it took on her, and I've felt a touch of it myself. Michelle - go take a good long break. You've earned it. Well done, my friend. Well done. philippe On Wed, Apr 26, 2017 at 7:44 AM, Tomasz Ganicz <polime...@gmail.com> wrote: > 2017-04-26 15:33 GMT+02:00 Katherine Maher <kma...@wikimedia.org>: > > > Michelle > > > Michelle was one of my personally favourite employees of WMF with which I > had occasion to meet face to face - so I wish her great continuation of her > carrier somewhere else and be missing her. > > Hopefully, our new General Counsel will be even better. > > > > > > > > > -- > Tomek "Polimerek" Ganicz > http://pl.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Polimerek > http://www.ganicz.pl/poli/ > _______________________________________________ > Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/ > wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines and https://meta.wikimedia.org/ > wiki/Wikimedia-l > New messages to: Wikimediaemail@example.com > Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, > <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe> > -- Philippe Beaudette phili...@beaudette.me 415-716-1795 _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines and https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia-l New messages to: Wikimediafirstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
