Persistence is certainly not something I'm
lacking! Some disagree
about how admirable that is, though...
I think it is a good trait to have and admirable.
Well, thank you.
More than of the quotes were either above the price
range we had in mind or
at the high end within the range. The price range we had in mind was
$2,500-$3,000 for five to six people. (Additional desk is for a visiting
staff from the WMF) There are a few quotes which came below the range, but
the space either lacked a meeting space, lacked infrastructure like LAN, or
required public transportation from the WMF office. The lease term with
Wikia is $2,500 per month, month-to-month. The budget allows us to invest
more fund for the space, but we would like to spend the gift prudently. It
is always better to set aside funds so that we can invest in reusable tools
such as automation of test tools and have ability to expand scope of
usability test and product improvements.
Sounds good. Thank you.
Thank you for
helping me understand this decision.
You are very welcome. Do you think we are CIO ready if the WMF were
U.K.-based entity? :-)
I would need to review the legislation. This kind of deal certainly
wouldn't be recommended, but it's probably legal.
