This is a message that I do not
find pleasant writing. Yesterday we had a board meeting, looking back at what
we did last year and what the plans for the future are. Today I kept myself
busy with writing the Wiki Loves Monuments report of last year, only realizing
once again how much potential this chapter has and what we have already achieved.
Unfortunately, sometimes in life
difficult decisions must be made. Attached you will find my resignation letter
from the Wikimedia ZA board of directors. Not only am I resigning from the
board, but I am also withdrawing myself from all other chapter activities for due course
of time. Academically this year is going to be more challenging for
me and I want to spend more time on other academic activities such as
peer-reviewing and open-access lobbying for journals.
You will not see or hear from me
for at least a year, but I will stay updated through the mailing list and the wonderful
friendships made while being involved with the chapter. I wish everyone the
best of times ahead! :)
