Where should we be in five years?

As an initial foray exploration into this question, we'd encourage you to capture key questions and make proposals. We'd also encourage you to help organize what's already there.

Framing

Our vision is "a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge." This is achievable through, among other things, the continued health, cultivation and growth of the Wikimedia community.

We are trying to identify core questions to help frame this discussion, which encompasses an enormous variety of topics. These include:

  • What are the biggest potential opportunities for impact in pursuit of reaching "every single human being"? How to extend reach?
  • What are the biggest potential opportunities for impact to "sum of all human knowledge"? How to extend quality?
the word "sum" implies quantity -- how can we expand quantity? 202.111.2.186 01:28, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
