I think the below is great -- let's add it. Our aim should be to get
this finalized today and then for supporter mailout tomorrow + blog


> "This year, the OKFN Board has been strengthened with the addition of
> new members who bring with them expertise in developing and broadening
> the work of organisations in the open knowledge space. This is a
> signal that we are looking to ground and expand the OKFN's activities
> into the future, to grow as a collaborative community, serviced by an
> agile, lightweight core. The Board's vision for the organisation is
> one that supports and nutures autonomous projects that are loosely
> joined by their endorsement and promotion of open knowledge, as set
> out in the open knowledge definition. We look forward to presenting
> the OKFN community with our plans to achieve this vision in the coming
> year.
> "OKFN will always be a not-for-profit organisation, built on the work
> of passionate volunteers. But by making a small investment in our
> infrastructure, we believe we can make this work go much, much
> further. To this end our target is to raise £10,000 a year based on
> regular donations. If you'd like to support us in this effort please
> sign up to our pledge: http://www.pledgebank.org/support-okfn/"
