Well, there is a sign at the top of the mountain that is both enthralling and terrifying:
'Our mountain is like nothing you have skied before!
Give this mountain the special respect it demands!'
Wikimedia is that mountain."
I am the Director, Community Advocacy, for the Wikimedia Foundation. For more about my work, please see my official userpage. I can be reached via email at philippewikimedia.org or on my meta talk page. In my volunteer capacity, I can usually be found on en:Wikipedia or meta, where I am an elected administrator. I previously was, by virtue of my job, a bureaucrat on the Wikimedia Strategic Planning wiki.
I was a member of the election committee for the Board of Trustees in 2007, 2008, and 2009, and am the staff liaison to the committee for 2011, 2013, and 2015.
