On the Wikimedia Foundation website I stumbled upon a photo of Naoko Komura who is the project lead of the Stanton project. It was a surprise to me to learn that she is a woman ... I am happy with that because most of the women that I know in the field of computing outperform the men.
It will be cool when the press release is replaced by some actual information about the project.. It is off course early days but I will not deny that I am eager to see a MediaWiki with an improving usability.
