"Have you ever skied at Jackson Hole in Wyoming?

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."

-- Stu West, WMF Board, in discussing Wikimedia Strategic Planning

On Wiki

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 philippe at 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.

You can find me on en:Wikipedia as Philippe as a volunteer, or as Philippe (WMF) in my staff role. On IRC, my username is usually Philippe.
