||I've been involved with Wikipedia (and Usenet, and various other community-based projects) for many years. Reading several of the meeting notes, I believe I can contribute to the kinds of discussions involved in management of the project.
- Establish an endowment for the foundation to provide a financial cushion from fundraising efforts
- Seek out sources of funding that don't require us to fundamentally change our no-advertisements, open nature
- The board should continue to be conservative in official day-to-day action on the wiki, reluctant to act except when it is necessary for the good of the project
- Be skeptical about accepting new recurring costs and "hard" infrastructure without a strong justification, in order to make certain that the project remains solvent, noncorrupt, and flexible
- Explore ways to present the data we have so far in more formats than the web (e.g. TTS, mobile devices, etc), for the benefit of humanity
- Take great care to avoid risks that may place the project in legal jeopardy
- Continue efforts to reunify Encyclopedia Libre and the Spanish Wikipedia, as well as encourage/establish outreaches for projects in different languages, to work more closely with other language Wikis to try to prevent similar problems, ensure legal compliance, and share ideas on policy
