A thing of note is §8 - the board intends to hire or contract someone to operate infrastructure on a daily basis, acknowledging the extraordinary importance TDF's virtual presence has for our collective needs.
I've some thoughts to throw in.
This touches several topics which I will handle within several mails: - Work to be done by TDF officers - strategy
If we pay an officer for doing typical community tasks some questions arise: How is his work rated compared to the same or similar work of a volunteer? If it's preferred against volunteers work, have we then to hire more and more professionals which do better work than volunteers? If the volonteers work is preferred, what is the professional paid for? I cannot imagine this model beeing fruitful for a healthy community. I'm not against having paid officers in general, but they should do meta tasks, i.e. rather looking for people doing necessary work - for example by poking sponsors to provide manpower than doing the work themselves.
