Would you please ask the Foundation to hire my Google Summer of Code
students to help do
I have a number of other requests, but that's the biggest budget item.

Todd Allen and I are headed to Germany April 19-22 to
represent the Wikimedians of Colorado User Group
The conference page is at
Wikimedia Conference 2018 - Meta
Do you all have any input? Is there anything in particular we should look for or bring
up at the conference?
E.g. about the Wikimedia long-term strategic plan?
--- Our strategic direction: Service and Equity ---
By 2030, Wikimedia will become the essential infrastructure of the ecosystem of free
knowledge, and anyone who shares our vision will be able to join us.
We, the Wikimedia contributors, communities, and organizations, will advance our world
by collecting knowledge that fully represents human diversity, and by building the
services and structures that enable others to do the same.
We will carry on our mission of developing content as we have done in the past, and we
will go further.
Knowledge as a service: To serve our users, we will become a platform that serves open
knowledge to the world across interfaces and communities. We will build tools for allies
and partners to organize and exchange free knowledge beyond Wikimedia. Our infrastructure
will enable us and others to collect and use different forms of free, trusted knowledge.
Knowledge equity: As a social movement, we will focus our efforts on the knowledge and
communities that have been left out by structures of power and privilege. We will welcome
people from every background to build strong and diverse communities. We will break down
the social, political, and technical barriers preventing people from accessing and
contributing to free knowledge.
Or Movement Partnerships?
Or Capacity Building & Learning?
I'll be out-of-town starting tomorrow and this nealmcb(a)gmail.com address is the best
way to reach me.
Thank you, and cheers,
