This being Volunteer Appreciation week in the US, I thought it was a 
great chance for me to post to this list and post a Wikimedia blog 
http://blog.wikimedia.org/2009/04/20/volunteer-appreciation/. I want to 
thank everyone for being so welcoming. I am very excited about this 
organization and this job working to support such an amazing group of 

I've been reading along on some important community issues discussed 
here and am learning so much. I look forward also to hearing 
perspectives on the list about issues around diversifying and further 
globalizing Wikimedia's free educational products and material. I am 
very volunteer-centric when it comes to my big thinking about direction, 
activities and products. So, I will be relying on you to help frame the 
Foundation's volunteer support in a way that will be most beneficial in 
your efforts to achieve our community's goals.

I look forward to meeting you as individuals as I go.
