hours, where I’ll answer community questions and share updates on the
It’s been a busy few weeks around the Wikimedia Foundation offices. We
shared our 2016-2017 annual plan, finished our quarterly reviews, and
attended Wikimedia Conference 2016 in Berlin with the Wikimedia affiliates.

Wikimedians, listen, debate, and plan for the future. Of course, Berlin is

of those sessions. We’ve created a page on Meta where you can leave
questions or comments, check the details on the location of each session:
Please share this invitation with others you think may be interested!
I look forward to speaking soon,
