:( We will miss you greatly. Thank you for your patience and calm
goodwill and many miles logged; thank you for guiding us towards a
strategic plan, opening us up to being a grant-giving organization,
and helping us become even more intentionally international. All the
best in your future work & explorations in the southern hemisphere,
and I do hope you'll stay involved (and come to Wikimania!)
