Well, there is a sign at the top of the mountain that is both enthralling and terrifying:
'Our mountain is like nothing you have skied before!
Give this mountain the special respect it demands!'
Wikimedia is that mountain."
I am no longer Wikimedia Foundation staff - I'm an editor now, and enjoying it. Previously, I was the Director, Community Advocacy, for the Wikimedia Foundation. For more about my work, please see my official userpage. In my volunteer capacity, I can usually be found on en:Wikipedia (where I am an elected administrator) or meta. I previously was, by virtue of my job, a bureaucrat on the Wikimedia Strategic Planning wiki.
I was a member of the election committee for the Board of Trustees in 2007, 2008, and 2009, and was the staff liaison to the committee for 2011, 2013, and 2015.
On IRC, my username is usually Philippe.
