Someone to coordinate volunteers is the way to go. A big reason to
hire Brad as legal counsel is because we could get all the pro bono
assistance we need (WMF has *lots* of friends) - but having in-house
counsel to coordinate them is the only way to go. Sandra is doing more
coordination of volunteers (and getting them to phrase things etc)
than doing press herself. Etc.

I'd apply for the job myself but being a sysadmin pays too well ;-p
