[Wikinews-l] wmf miscapitilizes Wikinews

Not everybody knows who the proper person to mail is. In this case, due to
being involved with the Communications Committee, I knew Jay Walsh pretty
much considers the WMF blog a pet project. They're always on the lookout for
something interesting to add to it. Perhaps Mike Halterman's upcoming
interview would make a good topic. As I understand it from IRC, the
subject's WP article has been translated into half a dozen new languages as
part of the lead up and solicitation of questions.

Was it an intentional pun that you put "wikimedia foundation" instead
of "Wikimedia Foundation"?  It just goes to show, some people
capitalize things differently (whether intentional or not).  I see
seasoned Wikimedians use the term "WikiMedia", try not to get too
upset by it... just do what Brian did, e-mail the proper person.
