      decline will continue based on organizational culture, until an investment is made to shift the culture.[1].
      To attract and retain more diverse members, the Wikimedia Foundation must invest in affiliates’ institutional resilience through capacity development focused on communications, contributor development, and community governance [2]
     Contra the prevailing belief, “success” isn’t being on top of a hierarchy, it is standing outside all hierarchies. Or, even better, for those who can, not being aware of, or not giving a f*** about hierarchy.[3]  

     Change comes from recruiting and nurturing supportive allies, not wasting time and emotional energy fighting perceived “enemies.” [4]

     They are unanimous in their hate for me--and I welcome their hatred. I should like to have it said of my first Administration that in it the forces of selfishness and of lust for power met their match. I should like to have it said of my second Administration that in it these forces met their master.[5]  

     Plato famously argued in The Republic that a tyrant, however powerful, ultimately suffers in the end by corrupting his own soul. You make a similar argument about assholes — that they might win at life but still fail as human beings.[6]

     The harm is that telling people to “assume good intent” is a sign that if they come to you with a concern, you will minimize their feelings, police their reactions, and question their perceptions. It tells marginalized people that you don’t see codes of conduct as tools to address systemic discrimination, but as tools to manage personal conflicts without taking power differences into account. Telling people to “assume good intent” sends a message about whose feelings you plan to center when an issue arises in your community.[7]  

     I know that it is not going to happen .. Jimmy Wales sending me 1 million dollar is not going to happen either. I will just have to live with it. And if I have the choice between checking with Google to see whether WikiData is correct, and if it is not using Google to get the correct data, or skip WikiData and just get the correct data from Google directly, then I choose the latter option. WikiData has its place in this world, but no place on en.wikipedia.

this is hilarious. you realize that knowledge graph uses wikidata, google having abandoned their knowledge database in favor of it? [8] have you tried a grant request? what would you spend it on, other than "send me money"? wikidata on the other hand, has no funding problems. [9]  

      «Wikipédia est un boys club, c’est sans doute le plus beau projet progressiste aux mains de conservateurs.» [10]  

  1. love the spirit outside of yourself: for the collective unconscious is greater than you
  2. make no little plans: for failure in the right is better than success in the wrong
  3. be charitable in good fortune: for the world created it
  4. be steadfast in adversity: for Sisyphus was happy
  5. be not afraid: for the end of things is better than the beginning
  6. be not angry: for a quarrel will empty your fortune by the law
  7. be not envious: for Schwesternschaft is better than Schadenfreude
  8. speak the truth: for yours are unclean lips in a land of unclean lips
  9. honor your grandparents and grandchildren: for we owe a debt to the past and future, not the present
  10. rest and reflect every seventh day, and seventh year: for life is not from task to task, but dream to dream (after Szilárd [11])
