silly little vision things

Whilst I try to pull my thoughts together post-wikimania here are a couple of silly little things I picked up.

1) I was trying to work out what the minimum standard is of what everyone in the Wikimedia world agrees on. That is, we keep arguing over so many things that you’d think we would have split apart long ago, so what is it that keeps us all together.

In summary the answer appears to be:

“Wikimedia: Free(free) stuff ‘n’ stuff. “

…perhaps that should be our updated vision statement? Which brings me to,

2) Our current vision statement says:

“Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share
in the sum of all knowledge. That’s our commitment.”

Grammatically, does that make sense? Breaking it down to just the verbs and you get:

imagine a world…that’s our commitment. “

So does that mean I’m committing to imagining something? Phew! I was worried that I might actually have to do something 🙂

    Haha, I always had the feeling that something wasn’t quite right with that sentence… thanks for pointing it out 🙂
