So, the audit was released a little while ago (if
you missed it, the important thing is at
<http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Image:Wikimedia_2007_fs.pdf>). I'm a little
surprised at the general silence here - did I just miss the threads or something?
I don't think what was released was detailed enough or recent enough
to say much about. One noteworthy figure to me was that the
Foundation had just over $1 million in cash, but that figure is long
obsolete, there's been lots of spending and lots of fundraising in the
The fact that the audit is completed and unqualified is good
I'm just happy to
see it happen. The next trick is to get them into the
habit of publishing interim quarterly statements. Audits are not
required for these.
