Wikia is incorporated in Delaware - it doesn't mean the office needs
to be there.

Is it really sensible to be looking for more staff in St. Pete when
most of the people who used to be based there now aren't? Last time I
was in the office, it was inhabited by Jimmy, Michael, Terry, and
Danny. Michael and Terry now work from home. Jimmy is usually
travelling and rarely in that office. That just leaves Danny, who only
moved there because the office was there, and Carolyn and whoever
joined since. I know Brion is moving there, but again *because* the
office is there, so that's not a reason to keep the office there.
Unless Wikimedia becomes more accepting of remote working, I think it
is disadvantageous to keep it based in St Pete, especially now the
search for a CEO is on.
