Cary is one of the longest serving people working at the Wikimedia Foundation. He has been really important to many people in helping them find their way and be part of our community. It is with sadness that I learn that Cary is going to take his life in a different direction; he is in the process of enrolling in post-graduate studies to pursue a theological path that he has been considering for many years. He will be leaving us at the end of December.
I am happy for him and I am happy to learn that he will continue to make his mark in the WMF as a volunteer. He indicates that he will be particularly involved in the organisation of Wikimanias and as an editor.
Cary, be well and I love to meet you in Haifa for Wikimania 2011.
