[Wikimedia-l] Another goodbye
Dear friends and colleagues,

I’ve had the amazing privilege of serving this movement in a staff capacity
for the past 4 ½ years, but I’ve now decided to move on from my role at the
Wikimedia Foundation.

Transparency, integrity, community and free knowledge remain deeply
important to me, and I believe I will be better placed to represent those
values in a volunteer capacity at this time. I am and will always remain a
Wikimedian, so you'll still see me around the projects (User:Seeeko),
hopefully with renewed energy and joy in volunteering.

This movement has become my home in so many unexpected ways, and I’m truly
honored to have learned from so many of you. It was an amazing experience
to have partnered with smart, bold, and dedicated community folks to
experiment with projects like Teahouse, IdeaLab, Inspire, Individual
Engagement Grants, and Reimagining Grants. I’ve seen you create some really
incredible content, ideas, tools, programs, processes, committees and
organizations, all in the service of free knowledge.

I expect my last day to be Thursday, February 25th. I have full confidence
in Maggie Dennis's abilities to lead the Community Engagement Department,
and I trust that my team will remain available to support the community’s
needs for grants and other resources throughout this time of transition.

Much love,
Siko

Wow Siko. This comes as a massive surprise. It was a pleasure working with
you on dispute resolution on my time as a Wikimedia Fellow. I'll always
remember the support you gave me and how I grew as a result. I consider you
a great friend and I'll miss you a lot. I wish you all the best in your
future endeavours. You will be sorely missed.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Another goodbye [ In reply to ]
Wow. What a loss. I will never forget your boundless enthusiasm for this
movement, and I loved our semi-regular walking meetings, Siko. I know you
will do so much for wherever you end up. What a tremendous asset you will
be to them! Your gifts are tremendous - almost as big as your heart.

Best,
pb

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Another goodbye [ In reply to ]
Siko, I'm very sorry to see this. You were a strong supporter of women on
Wikipedia and of improved community harmony. It was a pleasure to work with
you on the grant application that led to the Ally Skills Workshops. I wish
you all the very best.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Another goodbye [ In reply to ]
We are really going to miss you, Siko. You've done amazing things in
leading all of these various programs and developing both the programs and
a talented cadre of staff members. You're leaving behind a great legacy,
and I for one thank you very much for that.

I know you'll be brilliant wherever you wind up - and I'm glad to hear you
plan to stick around as a volunteer. All the best!

[Wikimedia-l] Another goodbye [ In reply to ]
Another day, another "big name" in the movement is leaving... So sad that
it is coming to this.

It has been an honour and a prividge working with you Siko. You've a pillar
of integrity, insight and good-humour through so many different projects.

You have done soooooooooooooo much great work in the past years, including
stuff like IdeaLab and supporting the grant programs.

It was alway nice to see you at Wikimania and other events like the
Diversity Conference.

(and sad that there aren't so many people left on the 6th floor that I
know. :/)

Hope you do indeed stay around as a volunteer :)

Cheers,
Katie

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Another goodbye [ In reply to ]
Oh, Siko... I am really sorry to see this letter of yours.
But I am truly grateful for all your support and understanding.
In wikiworld being awfully far in real life does not matter that much,
so I have always felt that you are near...

Thank you

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Another goodbye [ In reply to ]
Siko,

I am surprised to hear the news. I am pretty sure you will do an amazing
job wherever you end up in you next venture. But Wikimedia will miss your
good services. That is also the reason why you and your work will not be
forgotten.

I enjoyed working with you during our fellowship project. I can't agree
more how your continuous guidance and collaboration taught me to productive
and eventually led me and my project to a success. I also won't forget your
support during my hard times. I learned a lot from you.

I hope we will be in touch.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Another goodbye [ In reply to ]
SO sorry to read this! My work with you on the IEG committee was one of the
most inspiring experiences I have had in my years as a Wikipedian. I guess
we will only learn after a few years what the effects were of some of the
decisions we made ton that committee, but I like to think that some of the
projects we funded have grown seeds of inspiration across the movement.
Thanks for your work above and beyond the call of duty while heading the
committee.

From my corner of the Wikiverse, good luck in your future endeavors

Siko... I was sad to read about your departure.

And like Pete, I noted your words.

It is yet another crumb in a trail of worrying elements : the (too)
numerous departures within staff, the staff survey, the recent board
members cases, some staff members mentionning threats when expressing
publicly their opinion, the change of tone in the glassdoor reports, the
Knight grant, and so on. It is worrysome.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity."

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Another goodbye [ In reply to ]
Asaf, and everyone else, really, I guess the time for silence is over.

I think that, just because Siko feels this way, now, about this wmf, and about this moment, doesn't mean that the next moment will maintain, integral, this same truth. It is the rest of us that get to craft the next moment. It is both with our skills and effort that we get to craft it.

I intend to bring love and respect into our next moment. Lila and our leadership have failed to bring us peace right now in this moment, but we will make peace and we will fix our problems.

Because we are not a tree, we are part of an ancient Aspen Grove.
