The members of the board of trustees of Wikimedia Foundation have
recently agreed to add two new board members, both being members of our
community, for a term which will expire at next board elections
The first is Michael Snow, long time editor of Wikipedia, and twice
candidate to the board. Rather than presenting him, I recommand that you
go read into detail his candidate statements, back in 2004
or in 2007
Michael is a american lawyer, has been the founder of the SignPost and
is currently the Chair of the Commmunication Committee. He is noticeable
(somehow) for being very calm and wise.
The second is Domas Mituzas, long time developer in our tech team. He is
from Lithuania and works for MySQl. He has been a member of the core
tech team for... ever, and is the Foundation hardware volunteer officer.

Recent email on foundation list:
He is noticeable for being a very friendly, cheerful, and tall individual.
I am delighted to welcome them both on board, and I hope the community
will generally agree it is a good choice. Their terms will unfortunately
be rather short, but I have no doubt they will bring good insight
