Book Review: Ready Player One
April 26, 2012
This last weekend I bought and finished (in a 24 hour time-frame) a great new booked titled Ready Player One. I found it while surfing Amazon after finishing the Ender’s Game series and I’m really glad that I did. I won’t spoil the book for you (for that there is Wikipedia), but if you’re a geek, nerd, or grew up around the 80s — you’ll probably enjoy it too.
Wikimedia Foundation – Growing too fast? Or people just scared of numbers?
July 7, 2010
Recently the Wikimedia Foundation finalized their “5 year strategy” and posted the 2010-2011 Annual Plan. I read the entire plan and found it an interesting read. Previous to this, I had heard rumblings that the Foundation was going to double in size over the next year. They are 40 some fulltimers now, and that means by July 2011, they’re expecting to be at 80-90? That’s a big jump, on top of that if you read their 5 year plan for staff they are looking at hitting about 190 staff by 2015. Wow. So… that scares a lot of people. My question is: Why does more staff scare the community?
