Legal por ela ser ambiciosa e nos convidar a pensar grande. Espero que as
coisas dêem certo!

Sendo um bom wikimedista chato, apenas o ponto "Because Wikimedia is the
place to transcend the now and to build the future." soou muito como puxar
sardinha para o mundo wiki apenas. A Wikipédia é revolucionária. O wiki é
apenas uma ferramenta.

Se a WMF continuar tão wiki-cêntrica (principalmente nas sua métricas)
continuará com uma comunidade cuja fixação será quem editou mais verbetes
ou reverteu mais vandalismo, o que nem sempre é o mais eficiente para as
pessoas terem acesso a recursos educacionais abertos de qualidade (ela não
mencionou isso, apesar de mencionar sobre aprendizado), um dos temas mais
importantes ao redor da Wikipédia, na minha opinião.
