Nach Phoebe und Lodewijk folgen hier das dritte und das vierte Kandidatenstatement für die Chapterssitze im Wikimedia-Foundation-Board. Diesmal von unserer one and only lyzzy: Ich kandidiere für das Board of Trustees
und weil es diesmal die die eigene und unsere kandidatin ist, zitiere ich doch auch etwas:
My relationship with Wikimedia started at the end of 2004, when I joined the German Wikipedia. ...
I have been a member of Wikimedia Deutschland since 2005 and a member of Wikimedia Nederland since 2010. I joined Wikimedia Deutschland’s board in 2008 as secretary and served as vice president from 2009 to 2011. The main focus of my work on the board was the development of the strategic plan “Kompass 2020”, the preparation and backing of the chapter’s structural advancement, and controlling and assessing the chapter’s executive. ...
... Wikimedia organizations including the Wikimedia Foundation are no ends to themselves. To bring out the best they can in supporting the communities, they need stable, consistent, and reliable organizational structures. ... Sometimes it’s better to make a decision which must be changed later than to not decide at all. And I am a friend of letting things grow with their own pace. Providing fertilizer helps on occasion, though.
What I want to achieve:
* Strengthen Wikimedia by strengthening decentralized structures
* Bring together the best of all parts: their voices ... We must make it easy and attractive for every entity to share more information than just reports. Each publication should enrich the whole movement and should be understandable, independently of the reader‘s origin or culture.
* Identification with Wikimedia
Dank lyzzy habe ich dann auch noch das Kandidaturstatement von Liam Wyatt gefunden: times-they-are-a-changin’
Insgesamt muss ich ja sagen: schöne Auswahl.
