A board of trustees or an executive board

In a post on his blog Tawker suggests that it was "widely reported why" Mr Wool left his job. This is not true. Mr Wool explicitly refrained from explaining why he left his job and in this way prevented a discussion both about the organisation and his role in it.

The organisational consequences in the statements made in this blog are also very much wrong. The Wikimedia Foundation is in the process of setting up an organisation. This effort is hindered by a lack of funding and an unlucky choice in staff. As the staff becomes more professional, the board will be able to distance itself from the day to day affairs.
