QOTD: WMF’s fundraiser in perspective

$14m might sound like enough money to run a popular website, but for comparison, I work as a sysadmin at a tiny, tiny publishing company with more money and staff just in our department than that to do *almost nothing* compared to what WMF achieves. WMF is an INCREDIBLY efficient organisation.

Heard on WikiTech-l in a thread about better wiki editors. Just something to keep in mind when you’re getting annoyed with the fundraiser. (UPDATE: More interesting discussion on Non-Profits (especially free culture ones like the WMF and FSF) and compensation.)
