Peter's reply is pretty accurate. :) I'd add, it isn't because of what we've done - the change is, as far as I understand, driven by the Foundation's wish to move more responsibility to the Chapters to focus on grassroots outreach. So a major part of the developing role of WMAU is to focus on reaching new people and assisting them to produce free cultural content, in whatever form that may take. This, of course, means scaling up dramatically, so a lot of current focus is on getting policies and procedures in place to allow the Chapter to scale without encountering the fundamental problems you tend to hit.
Anyway, I would like to echo Peter's suggestion of more ideas. :) We have some really nice projects in progress that we'll be able to talk about soon, which I'm looking forward to, but a range of suggestions and possible directions would be greatly appreciated. We do have a formal proposal process, developed so that proposals won't be lost or forgotten as we scale up, but at the moment any and all suggestions would be wonderful as a point to start discussion.
