Welcome and good luck to both of you!

> Hello,
> 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 
> (june-july 2008).
> 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 
> (http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Board_elections/2004/Candidates#Michael_Snow_.28Confirmed.29), 
> or in 2007 
> (http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Board_elections/2007/Candidates/en#User:Michael_Snow).
> 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.

> 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 
> nevertheless.
> Thanks
> Florence Devouard
> Chair Wikimedia Foundation
