Hi Eugene, very nice, thank you (and welcome!)
* Could you please help update the meta page on the process with your
thoughts and ideas? [[m:Strategic planning 2009]] What's your current
rough timeline for the coming 12 months?
* I see you are using a non-editable Chandler calendar to track tasks. Can
you set up an editable one for the whole community to use? It also seems to
me that more of the 'later' tasks, even at this early stage, should be
milestones from / facilitated through / presented to the community, whereas
they are currently designed around bridgespan and board meetings.
* I have the impression that bridgespan would like to be brought up to speed
on what the community's key issues, motivations, and priorities are. You
probably know better than anyone; how can community members best help get
outsiders (like BS) get up to speed on past discussions about WM and WP
future planning? How have you been getting up to speed?
This might be a good discussion to continue on-wiki -- I expect most of the
community editing about this will take place on Meta, and its pages are
watched by many people who don't read f-l.

We're still in the process of getting up to speed, but I'm anxious to
start interacting with more of you and garnering some feedback as we
prepare to initiate this process. As a way to get to know each other
and talk about the process, Philippe and I will be holding IRC office
hours tomorrow on freenode's #wikimedia channel from 8-10pm UTC. (You
can convert this to your local timezone using: http://bit.ly/1aCw9p
It will be informal. We'll be around to chat, hear your ideas, and
tell you what we know thus far. Please join us, and please spread the
word to others who might be interested!
