I have a few comments here. These aren't directed personally to Katherine; this is more like "Pine thinking out loud".
I have am grateful for the depth and breadth of discussions that are happening in the strategy process. The depth and breadth are more extensive than I anticipated. I am uncertain about how the end product will look -- I think that everyone is -- and I continue to be cautious about spending so much money and time on developing strategic goals and a strategic plan. Still, I am hopeful that the end product will be useful. However, there is still the matter of the financing of the extension of the grant, and so far the lack of answers about how much it is costing and the other matters that I raised in my previous emails. I am hoping that WMF will choose to be cooperative with these inquiries. It seems to me that WMF should make efforts to set a good example of financial transparency.
