Many thanks for your emails.
Would it be ok for me to post your emails/word documents on the
It would help us lots, due to the decentralized nature of our
community and decisionmaking.
My postal address is at
http://www.ropersonline.com/cv/onlinecv.html -- HOWEVER: As I'm
myself currently resident in Germany, I'm thinking it might be
better to post any physical brochures, etc. to one of our Irish
Wikipedians (as they're likely going to be the local contacts).
I will ask one of them about their address. Generally speaking,
we'd actually prefer electronic documents, because, again, as
we're an Internet-based community, the value of any one
specific person having printed material in their possession
might be limited. Jimmy Wales (the founder of Wikipedia and
director of the Wikipedia Foundation, cf.
http://www.jimmywales.com/) might be one of the few people it
could make good sense to send documents to. Let's however only
do that if and after Dublin gets selected -- because all our
decisionmaking is essentially democratic and in ordinary
circumstances Jimmy has only one vote, just as everybody else.
Again, if you have further electronic documents which we could
post on the web, that would be more than welcome.
Thanks a million for your help.
Thanks and regards,
