Many thanks to our Board, who got the newsletter off of the ground:
Board of Trustees : w:en:user:Jimmy Wales, Angela Beesley, Michael Davis, Florence Nibart-Devouard (Anthere), w:en:user:Tim Shell.
Anthere doubled as the Executive Editor and producer of the newsletter, sustaining enthusiasm for the project, finding people to work on it, and keeping an eye on the development of every section.
Thanks likewise to the staff who came together on a moment's notice; especially Jean-Christophe Chazalette, the newsletter's graphic designer and first fan, who was enthusiastic about the project from the first day and pulled beauty out of a hundred conflicting suggestions. And of course, many thanks to our Editor-in-Chief Sj, whose dedication, persistence, responsiveness and kindness have made this entirely mad idea a worldwide and professional newsletter.
In addition to the open letters from the founder and the Board, writing was shared by many people:
Many people also submitted ideas for columns, image suggestions, and blurbs for local projects.
