Hi all,

We are pleased to notify you that today we flipped the switch on the Wikimedia
Foundation's official blog! Wikimedia Blog can be found at


Some background info:  this will be a space for WMF staff to post news and
information about the work we're engaged in.  We'll also bring in guest
contributors, board members etc to post.  Comments are pre-moderated for the time
being, and we're hoping for lots of civility.  Comments will be moderated by 
several volunteer moderators and staff as necessary.

We have some basic posting guidelines (generally short, fairly simple english,
conversational etc) so we can keep it reader friendly and useful.  We expect a
wide audience - media, public, users, you name it!  And we'll work hard to keep it
interesting - and regular (hopefully posts every other business day).

Always welcome your views, and your understanding about our work-in-progress :)

Hope you enjoy!  Looking forward to hearing your views.
