This is a celebration of Wikipedia.. It is as if all the other projects do
not exist. If that is the Wikimedia Foundation, I feel very much left out.

I’m happy to share with you the Annual Report from the Wikimedia Foundation
for 2014 -- Knowledge is a foundation <https://annual.wikimedia.org>.
published last Wednesday, but I'm just catching up enough to send the
email. (Pardon me.)
This year, we are telling the story of Wikimedia in the context of free
knowledge, and releasing it as web version (wiki, too!) so that we can
share that story with even more people.
Knowledge is a foundation. It is a foundation for human potential, a
foundation for freedom, a foundation for opportunity. Our mutual project,
Wikipedia, is part of the global support structure for free knowledge.
Most importantly, people are the foundation of Wikipedia. We are inspired
by thousands of contributors who support the projects, and are excited to
share a little bit about Dr. Netha Hussain, Jacek Halicki, Dumisani
Ndubane, Dr. Adrianne Wadewitz, Ihor Kostenko, Dorothy Howard, Ram Prasad
Joshi, and Jake Orlowitz.
Thank you for the myriad of contributions you make, from coding to writing,
editing to programs, and uploads to donations.
We've written a blog post about the process we went through this year, and
how we settled on the concept of 'knowledge as a foundation.'
You can participate in the wiki version of the report here, and soon help
with translations 
Thank you very very much,
