This is the third departure of a WMF employee who was involved with the 2015 Inspire Campaign.   The other two were Luis Villa [1] and Anna Koval [2].  The response to that ideaLab campaign [3] figured significantly in the program of Wikimania 2015. [4]  The Wikimania 2016 schedule for Esino Lario, however, seems to have few or no accepted submissions on community and governance, [5]  and if I understand this correctly, there will be no Wikimania 2017.  It's hard not to conclude that Wikimedia is transitioning away from being an open source community movement.
