I'll be at the Wikimedia Summit this weekend and hope to capably represent
WREN's POV and interests in the discussions around implementing Strategy
Some other WREN folks who I know will be there in other capacities - Tochi
Precious, Richard Knipel, Florence Devouard, and Mike Dickison. If there
are thoughts from anyone on Strategy 2030 and what we do, please let me
know, or feel free to use the email list.
Also, last call for newsletter items! They are publishing very soon. Even a
pointer to a Wikimania presentation would be fine, which is what I did for
the USA report.
