It probably would be cheaper for the Foundation to be based in Poland, as long as they didn't bear the cost of moving most of its San Francisco-based employees and their families over there, then paying to send their kids to private English-language schools in Warsaw or wherever. If the WMF isn't going to follow my advice and move to Fresno to save operating costs, then perhaps they will go to Poland.
Don't kid yourself. If Susie and her slaves ever move somewhere, it will be to NYC,
so they can hobnob with the Social Register crowd.
Moving the servers and support staff to Poland, now that's a winner....cheaper Polish
workers means more money for Susie and Erik.
What's really interesting to me: all these former employees who left under a "cloud"
or for some other not-happy reason. (other than Larry Sanger, who is in this other
thread.) Godwin, Mike Snow, Brad Patrick, and probably several lower-down people that
I'm forgetting.Not a single one of them has written a tell-all about the WMF's demented internal
operations. Why is that?
 Personal embarassment
 Unwillingness to throw good time after bad
Not even Jon Krakauer could turn the follies at WMF into the next Into Thin Air
. And if he did, it wouldn't make much money anyway. If you want three stooges comedies about nitwits and toxic people doing lamebrain or nasty things to to each other, there's always reality TV, where it's even worse, and in color. And requires next to no effort from the consumer to understand.
I would like Godwin, Sanger, etc. to write up and post an official blog entry before they forget or die, just for history's sake. Maybe on Greg's site. But not, of course, with the expectation that they'll get anything from it but historical revenge.
