That's not the board's job though, and misses the point of my email. I'm saying that we should be aspiring to be in the position where the subject matter experts we look to on the board in fields of law, finance, privacy, etc. are ALREADY "insiders" simply by reason of using Wikimedia projects before we ever start recruiting for them -- and not just at the very low standard of "What is Wikipedia" but somewhere more in-depth than that.
