And why not wait until the encyclopedia is finished before putting it up 
on a website for people to look at? The Wikimedia Foundation is a work 
in progress. For all the talk about being a unique organization, needing 
to think outside the box of traditional models, and partaking of the 
character of its community, sometimes I think we miss the ways in which 
it actually has those qualities. As some people have suggested, I'm sure 
the chapters will "be bold" in creating their part of the equation here, 
and will continue to "edit" it for future improvements. I would hope we 
do not stop evolving the global foundation while we wait for something 
to come along with the perfect conditions for change.
