Hi Katherine, I'm going to do something bold here and respond in public to your comment about the changes at WMF since last year.
Standard disclaimer: this reflects only my own views. I seem to have a long memory for things that have gone badly at WMF over the years and for longstanding points of contention between communities and WMF. As you can probably tell from my recent email about WMF financial matters, I'm also dissatisfied with some things in the here and now. However, my perception as an outsider is that WMF is in a much better place than it was when you took over the ED role, and that there are a number of aspects of the organization which are headed in good directions. My perception is that WMF was close to chaos when you took over, and that the situation improved remarkably quickly within the first few months. Also, there have been remarkably few breakdowns since you took over, and I'm grateful for that as well. While I have a number of differences of opinion with you, I think it's only fair to say that you've done a lot of good in your first year, and I'm hopeful for more ahead. I wish you a second successful year.
