I like the ideas about setting up a variety of remote
clusters as well as
remote individual employees. Google, Microsoft and Facebook have remote
clusters, and I'm sure that many other companies do this as well. Besides
decreasing expenses, improving travel logistics, and improving recruiting,
having a distributed workforce increases disaster resiliency such as in
case San Francisco had a major earthquake.
Google, Microsoft and Facebook also have the vast majority of their
employees working in the Pacific Northwest. I don't think recruiting and
location strategy is a topic particularly amenable to amateur input. The
management of the WMF is not an element of the movement that is
crowdsourced, probably for good reason. Not that anyone with great
confidence in their opinion should refrain from offering it, but hopefully
no one will be upset when the WMF makes its own decision.
