- One member of the foundationâ€™s board, Florence Nibart-Devouard, stormed out of a news conference because she had not been told about the announcement being made. And on Thursday afternoon, signs concerning registration had the opening time crossed out, replaced by the word â€later.â€
â€Itâ€™s a funny thing,â€ Mr. Wales said. â€I had no idea that anyone was putting up signs. Someone somewhere said there should be signs, and someone did it. Itâ€™s effective.â€
â€But,â€ he added, â€itâ€™s chaotic.â€
Perhaps it should be, given the nature of the organization itself. Shouldn't a meeting reflect the mores, nature, and ways of doing things of the organization? If active Wikipedia members like the rough-and-tumble, shouldn't their conference be open to editing on the fly as well?
