個人陳述 文學士:Wooster書院
工商管理碩士學生:俄亥俄州立大學,企業營銷

Listening and collaborating to reach common ground on difficult and time consuming issues, because there’s something more important at stake than our egos. This is what I learned in my five years of not-for-profit board experience, and my internship in the United States Senate. My experience managing political campaigns gifted me the ability to raise funds without selling out principles, something needed by Wikimedia right now. These experiences, combined with my MBA, have given me the ability to inform the difficult decisions the board faces, utilizing my training in marketing and finance.

Wikimedia to me means bringing the world knowledge through Accuracy, Openness, and Civility. I look forward to listening to everyone over the next two years, and working to uphold these ideals.

Please select me as a trustee for 2009-2011. I will not only meet, but exceed your expectations.

個人陳述 作為一名理事,我將會支持與社區開放、透明的對話,也將會努力成為社區的聲音和使者。

具體來說,我將會:

  • 通過建立一個不影響組織獨立性的捐贈項目,策劃維基媒體計劃的長期可行性。
  • 鼓勵維基媒體為共同使用而採用公開的標準,從而保證維基媒體一直是這個公開的知識生態系統的核心。
  • 爭取保護網絡的中立,從而保證維基媒體社區的努力能夠得到長期的回報,且能夠為後代保留。

我有廣泛的非盈利管理的背景,和豐富的盈利和非盈利世界的經驗。

在維基媒體之外:我在Tubefilter工作。從2008年初起,我積極參與“可攜帶數據計劃”,是指導委員會和財務委員會的成員。我是“開放網絡基金會”的一名成員和秘書長,“開放ID基金會”的一名成員,還是“開放朋友計劃”的建立者之一。我還參加“開放土壤計劃”,努力創造一個開放的種子許可的資源。

個人陳述 我相信自己擁有作為投身於基金會理事會中服務的特質和經驗。我現在是傳訊委員會之成員之一,基金會的傳媒聯絡人和OTRS法律隊伍代表。

我同時亦活躍於基金會社群,亦曾出席過數次維基會議,且曾於華盛頓領頭舉辦「維基愛藝術」活動。 我現在是Glushko-Samuelson知識產權實習學院的學生律師,並將會於五月接受法律博士學位。

我已經和辦公部門的員工碰過多次面,且感覺他們都是些了不起,有才幹和獻身於工作的員工; 我肯定地相信這並非理事會的干涉他們每日累積的努力,而是以帶領和監察整個協會作為一個整體。 我相信自己可以透過跟一些理念相近的組織發展策略夥伴關係,以協助基金會達到這個目標。 為此我亦曾經協助跟史密森尼美國藝術館發展夥伴關係。在此次合作中,他們同意將大量數碼化的館藏提供並上載於共享資源。

個人陳述 I've worked on core site technology and operations since 2004, and joined the WMF Board of Trustees in January 2008 - thus participated evolution of both technology and organization over the long years.

I see Wikimedia Foundation as a service organization, assisting communities with the projects, and maintaining the infrastructure for creativity and collaboration - providing legal groundwork, communication environment and of course, the free content technology.

Organization itself is and should be, due to financing model, always ensuring high efficiency, and always be ready to balance between needs, wishes and capabilities.

I'd like to represent a much larger community, not only editors bearing voting rights. There is wide audience of non-contributing users, who have their needs, and for those needs we are or should be working. There are advocates of our work and our mission, and we should assist them.

This organization is just part of greater movement, which has chapters, sister organizations and all the volunteers - and it is important to steer it, to maintain the most sustainable balance, ensuring availability of free content for ages ahead - empowering each other.

個人陳述 I have been involved in many projects, Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Commons, translatewiki.net and I learned that a lack of technology, a lack or support and a lack of organisation hamper our projects. I am a firm believer in "putting your money where your mouth is" and I have invested in technology like OmegaWiki, the LocalisationUpdate extension and the proof of concept for a multilingual search for Commons. I will seek resources to realise with priority the missing functionality needed to properly support our existing languages and projects.

As a result of my advocacy for the support for the languages other then English, I became part of the language committee, a member of the World Language Documentation Centre. As a result of my interest in quality illustrations for our projects I promote digital restorations and I am instrumental in good relations with several Dutch GLAM.

作為一位委員會成員,我將尋求對其他語言與文化需求的平衡 I strongly believe that there is this Wikimedia movement and, in my experience we need to partner with organisations that share our values. Together we will realise our aim; to share the sum of all knowledge with everyone.

    • 姓名: 格列高利•科斯

    • 活躍的維基: 英語百科, 間中亦活躍於元維基,共享資源,維基語錄和 Wikiversity。
個人陳述 I have an agenda to lift the accountability, professionalism, and excellence of the Wikimedia projects' leadership and content. I am a marketing research practitioner at a Fortune 100 media and communications company employing approximately 100,000 people. I have also played instrumental roles in launching several Internet brands, including MyWikiBiz.com and Akahele.org (the output of a non-profit corporation). I serve on the Boards of two different non-profit organizations. I'm happily married (sorry, gals) and I have one highly exuberant daughter.

I firmly believe that the WMF Board of Trustees is in need of a good shake-up, as it is engineering the growth of the Wikimedia properties, staff, and budgets with alarming speed, while doing almost nothing to curb the culture of unaccountability, lack of professionalism, and sub-average content quality. The "Wiki Way" was paved with good intentions, but lately harm to individuals and embarrassing disrepute seem to be more frequently ruling the day; so, it is time to step up and start making the hard decisions needed to save the Wikimedia projects from destroying themselves.

    • 年齡: 22歲
    • 所在地: 西班牙 加泰羅尼亞自治區 烏赫爾
    • 語言: 西班牙語、英語、加泰羅尼亞語、義大利語、葡萄牙語。
個人陳述 As an English linguistics student who respects plurality, I consider myself suitable for taking this task and communicating with other people internationally. I study at UNED, a distance learning university. For this reason, I can organize my time and, if elected, participate in board duties.

Furthermore, I have been involved with the Spanish Arbitration Committee (aka CRC) during one year. I am also an administrator and bureaucrat since 2007. Apart from that, I am currently a checkuser on the Catalan wikipedia project, from where I am also preparing a talk that will take place in Wikimania 2009, in Argentina, next August. I have been able to earn the community confidence in those projects. In other words, I feel highly committed with Wikimedia projects and principles.

As an experienced translator, who has attended and organized several wiki-meetings, with more than 100 articles translated, I feel myself able to translate Wikimedia policy if necessary. I have promoted Wikimedia projects worldwide in countries such as Uruguay, Spain or Andorra, in several interviews with the Media. I would like to keep on doing my job by assuming this responsibility from now onwards.

個人陳述 Since I have become active at Wikipedia, I have noted that while every single episode of South Park has its own article, numerous topics which are of interest and genuine intellectual concern to those of us on the far right, have been treated with apparent disdain, and have been subjected to seemingly arbitrary deletion. It often seems to me as if articles that are of interest to persons on the political right, are held to a significantly higher standard, for the purposes of achieving notability.

My candidacy is derived from my concerns pertaining to the issue of freedom of speech, or perhaps more precisely, the objectivity of the administration of the WikiMedia Foundation's various projects, with particular emphasis on what I have come to perceive as a liberal-leftist bias ("political correctness") with regard to the administration of Wikipedia. I do not claim this is a huge problem. On the contrary, I have a very high regard for Wikipedia, as well as for the Wikimedia Foundation's efforts as a whole. However, my experiences at Wikipedia, as well as what I have learned in conversations with various others who have had similar experiences, have led me to conclude that this has become an issue that requires redress, and thus is one that can perhaps be best dealt with by having a sympathetic ear on the Board of Directors of the WikiMedia Foundation.

個人陳述 当我明年完成高中学业, 我打算在南非斯泰伦布什大学攻读核物理学荣誉学位. 在群体活动中,我是一名坚定的成员, 但当需要时,我会非常自信地接过领导职位. 我意志坚定,有组织, 并且工作非常努力. 我在英文维基百科中已经做出了非常重大的贡献, 同时拥有“Rollback” 和 “Account creator”权限. 并且在焦点项目上保持合作.

我坚信我会成为一个伟大的受托人. 尽管我还年轻, 但我有能力并且很成熟. 通过争取我总能变不可能为可能. 成为董事会成员将会给我机会去实现一些有意义的改变.我的主要目标是让南非,当然也包括整个非洲,更多地参与维基媒体基金会.这将带来经济资助, 深化合作,并帮助基金会向广大的未涉足区域扩张.

进入董事会是我最大的一个梦想. 通过成为一名董事, 我可以协助基金会向未涉足领域扩张. 我并不是在谋求威望或是权力; 我非常积极地知道我会帮助基金会实现目标.所以请不要作出某些预设, 我完全有能力胜任.

個人陳述 如果您同意以下條目, 您就應該支持我
  • The wide range of our languages should be reflected on the board better than by just one token trustee who isn't a native speaker of a major world language.
  • The reorganized advisory committee should be encouraged to become an active and authoritative voice in foundation matters side by side with the foundation staff and board of trustees.
  • Any authority the Board can find a way to legally and feasibly delegate to other organs of the community, it should. But when necessary, the board must boldly clarify what our central mission is.
  • The chapters cannot be the only organ for crosslanguage interaction (though they are a vital component). Those community members who are not interested in organized forms of contributing, must be involved directly in bridging the gaps between communities and the content in our various languages and projects in the more ad hoc way they prefer. And we must never forget those areas and languages which will never have chapters, for whatever reason.
  • What we do is for the ages, and genuinely without comparison!

個人陳述 自2006年起我已成為一位WMF委員會成員.我今年將在喬治馬松大學(Goorge Mason)完成我的法律博士學位,主攻著作權法,專利法,商標法及經濟學,而且我已經是法律經濟與政策期刊的編輯.我也是一位有註冊在案的專利代理人與古典音樂家.

I see my role thus far as a "conscience", helping keep the board focused on Wikimedia's core values and principles: freedom, openness, neutrality, transparency, collaboration. I have a commitment to and understanding of free content and free software, the communities around them, and their ideals, goals, and practical aspects.

I think it's also important to stand back and encourage independent community action, growth, and experimentation. I see the board as working on a big-picture level, creating a framework for decentralized community effort, and thinking both on the short term and the very, very long term.

Some key projects I have been involved with include the license transition, licensing policy, patents/file formats, staff search/hiring/evaluation, subnational chapters, board restructuring, and the development of a professional office compliant with good nonprofit practices.

  1. 促進使用「專門技術」委員會,使其較不孤立。
  2. 在維基百科上促近對隱私權政策的調整。
  3. issue such Foundation-level dictates on biographies of living persons issues as can be issued without jeopardizing the Foundation’s protection under s. 230 of the Communications Decency Act,
  4. advocate for the Foundation-imposed creation of committees in our largest projects, such committees to be
    • 授權讓具體項目公開化。
    • elected to finite terms by the community and recallable by same,
    • overrulable by community consensus,
    • authorized to alter their own makeup, and
    • no threat to the Foundation’s Section 230 immunity as a nonpublisher;
  5. guard against over-optimistic growth projections, and
  6. 反對在任何維基計畫上放置廣告

個人陳述 Wikimedia should be a model for open, scalable organizations.

As a Board member, I would be a strong community voice, communicating regularly about the Board's work, holding open meetings and soliciting public input. I support developing expertise within the community.

I would also:

  • fight for better support for translation and multilingual communication across Wikimedia, particularly for planning discussions
  • represent the technical and practical needs of smaller projects
  • encourage careful use of funds and goodwill, planning for long-term availability of the projects (with an endowment and core services)
  • encourage delegating outreach & community development to chapters


關於我:我是一位維基的編輯,翻譯員與支持者. I am a steward, and started the Meta translators network in 2004. I published the Wikimedia Quarto newsletter (in 5 languages), and was secretary of the Special Projects Committee. I founded the Boston meetup group and helped run the first two Wikimanias, hosting Wikimania2006 in Boston.

Outside Wikimedia: For 3 years I have been director of content at One Laptop per Child, working on local partnerships for free content and offline distribution.

    • 年齡: 47歲
    • 所在地: 雄舍(Schönthal), 巴伐利亞, 德國
    • 語言: 德語, 英語, 也能夠書寫一些拉丁文及西班牙文
個人陳述 About me: 47, (family, 3 children) and working as a specialist in internal medicine, sports medicine and as a senior emergency doctor in a rural region of Bavaria. A large part of the remaining time I'm working for Wikipedia, because I know that a vision only lives from people working for it.

The fact that Wikipedia is not only an innovation but a vision, that's no secret. ... and even a vision that has been high-flying so far. In addition, wiki succeeded not only in defining, but also in implementing transnational ideals and values. Some wiki-projects do run very good, others more hesitant. So, a vision is not a self-runner, but needs consistent support and goals. What they actually need, no one knows better than the community itself; so I (in case of being choosen) will be a board member "to touch" - who will try to realize your ideas (and not just my own). I have some experience in the leadership of volunteer organizations (although not on the global stage ☺). It would be a great honor for me to be allowed to represent your interest in the Board.

個人陳述 我去年被選入理事會。在過去一年中我積極參與理事會的各項工作和決議,其中包括生者傳記(BLP)和更改版權協議的決議。我參與了理事會選擇委員會的工作,是理事會駐分會委員會的代表之一。去年秋天我隨同吉米•威爾士赴中國北京向中國官方解釋我們的工作、任務和目標,說服他們在奧運會後不再封禁維基媒體項目。我認為我的責任在於向社群解釋理事會和基金會的工作、想法和計畫以及把社群的意見回饋給理事會和基金會。在我的工作、我在基金會的工作以及生活中的其他事物外我履行了自己的諾言,繼續作為一名社群成員參加各種討論和爭論和堅持我在維基百科的工作:從我當任至今我創建了許多新條目和擴展了許多小條目。在這段時間裏我繼續我的管理員工作檢查侵犯版權的條目和圖像,幫助解決全域化用戶(SUL)名統一。我想在今後兩年裏以社群成員和理事會成員的身份繼續我的工作。
