The Wikimedia Foundation Board election 2008

The 2008 Wikimedia Foundation Board voting process utilized a new interface and tallying script developed by Election Committee member Kwan Ting Chan.

The winner of the election was Ting Chen.


In other news, Gregory Kohs, though he placed last among the 15 candidates, was found by nearly 53% of the voting population to be as acceptable as -- or better than -- the ultimate winner, Ting Chen. Given that statistic, it would seem that anyone who has a few enemies who are driven to rank you DEAD LAST will have an inordinate say over the outcome of that candidate's bid, versus the masses who don't bother to rank past their favorite one or two candidates.

Some may feel squeamish about eating it, but rabbit has a fan base that grows as cooks discover how easy they are to raise — and how good the meat tastes.
