Who Am I?[edit]


I'm a inveterate globe trotter and unabashed wonk. I love good journalism, good food, good beer, and good people. I'm a cautious optimist about humanity, but a pragmatist about people. More institutionalist than individualist.


I work in the intersection of technology, policy, human rights and global development. Nowadays I work for the Wikimedia Foundation, where I am the Executive Director. I say this only for the purpose of transparency. If you want to talk to me about work, my official username is Katherine (WMF). Here, I like to lay low. If you're looking for me elsewhere on the internet, you'll find me as either krmaher or maherkr.

And now, the obligatory disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, but this is my personal account. Edits, statements, or other contributions made from this account are my own, in my personal capacity, and may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
