Donald Trump’s name lends itself to all sorts of mashed-up words, but we find it doesn’t really work with the big story of the week. British voters decided to take the so-called “Brexit” (or “British exit”) from the European Union.

Earlier today, Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales announced that the Wikimedia Foundation’s Board of Trustees has appointed Katherine Maher as its new executive director.
Maher formerly served as communications officer for Wikimedia Foundation, the nonprofit that governs the massive online encyclopedia. She became interim director in March following a period of turmoil during which a board member and former Executive Director Lila Tretikov both resigned. Those resignations came after an unprecedented “no-confidence” vote by the site’s editors.
“Our mission is vast, diverse, and inclusive, where everyone can find a home and purpose,” said Maher in a statement. “We are driven by an insatiable curiosity for the world around us, and a fundamental belief in the power of collaboration and cooperation. I’m honored by this opportunity to serve this remarkable organization and movement, and I look forward to building our future together.”
