[Foundation-l] Announcing my departure from the Wikimedia Foundation
cary at wikimedia.org
Mon Aug 2 22:01:04 UTC 2010
It is with deep regret that I tell you I will be leaving the staff of
the Wikimedia Foundation at the end of December.
I'm leaving the staff, but I will continue to be involved with the
Wikimedia movement as a volunteer, both as a contributor and in the
organization of the annual Wikimania conference. Much of my work with
Wikimedia will continue, except now I will be doing it as a volunteer
rather than as a paid staff person.
The Wikimedia Foundation is not planning to hire another volunteer
coordinator to look after the specific range of work I've been doing, so
if you are unsure about who will handle things I have been responsible
for, please feel free to ask me, and we'll work it out over the next
I have decided to continue my education and have begun the process of
enrolling in post-graduate studies to pursue a theological path that
I've been considering for many years.
I have very much enjoyed my time with the Wikimedia Foundation, and I
look forward to continuing to work alongside you all, as a Wikimedia
volunteer. I enjoy working with each and every one of you.
