In my opinion, the Working Groups are advocating for similar experiments to bet $1.1 billion with a similar lack of rigor. If the WMF wants the movement to change direction, it should come up with a series of pilot programs rather than ask the ship (Titanic or Queen Mary?) to turn on a dime. The WMF is trying to crowd source its 2030 Strategy particularly from the Global South. There is no reason to expect those voices to produce a sound, coherent set of recommendations that will attract the support of either large donors or the US and UK volunteers. KM and her new Chief of Staff are in charge of mediating those differences.
Do you have any evidence of this statement? And do you consider it as useful to invest a lot of money in chapters with free loaders who are "solving" all kind of not existing problems in the rich, good organised country's? Who are only producing bot crap? To finance overpaid trolls with pirate flags?
And second, to be clear, Wikipedia has cost me because I got really ill a fortune because of the behaving of that fine wikipedians there.
The Wikipedia experience was even a attack on my health because of all the bulling and trolling and gaslightening . in every way I am attack you remember, even in my private life. (i am fine again, thanks.) My name and reputation is smeared with wiki mud. And I did a lot of useful work there what has cost me many, many hours.
But I came much stronger out of i than I ever was before, and that is the Graaf you guys are seeing now.
Do you really think I have any intention to protect corrupt WMF employers or a corrupt WMF or a (supposed) partying Katherine Maher?
I just write down what I think is justified. I am relative a outsider and a child of two worlds without any contact with these people. Without any, with no one of them.
And I have not ever had a even a chocolate bar or any promise I should ever get one.
