December has been a relatively slow month as people are busy with
holiday plans. Hopefully the Christmas and New Year holidays provide
everyone with a refreshing break, as well as an opportunity for
reflection and brainstorming for the coming year. 2009 will be
Wikimedia Australia's first full year of existence and like a toddler,
we are learning and growing in leaps and bounds. We wish all our
members a happy and successful 2009 and hope that they will help us
make the same come true for Wikimedia Australia.
