I think if we've learned anything, it is our ability to right the ship.  At
one point I thought of Wikimedia as a pontoon, with a motor.  At this point,
it is a catamaran, with a sail hanging high.  In the long run we'll reach
shore, until then we're sailing in any direction.  Which is fine, because
for some reason it works.  When we wind up at a strange island, we'll figure
out the language.  Magellan taught us that :)
