Sue & I have drafted a set of research goals that the Wikimedia
 Foundation supports. The purpose of the document is to have something
 we can point researchers, universities, foundations, and other third
 parties to when they ask us: So, what kind of research are you
 interested in? Will you support/endorse my research proposal X? In
 most cases, we will not actively pursue these goals directly -- we'll
 just try to facilitate & endorse research by third parties.

 These research goals need to line up with our overall organizational
 goals to make sense, so we've tried to map research goals to
 organizational goals.

 In light of this constraint, please do feel free to make revisions, or
 to suggest changes on the discussion page:


 It's still a draft looked at by only two people - so we do expect it
 to be incomplete. :-)

 (BTW - I'm aware that some chapters are pursuing a research agenda on
 their own: This is great, and these Foundation goals are in no way
 meant to be prescriptive for chapters.)
