Welcoming Ori Livneh

*Hi All,

Please join me in welcoming Ori Livneh as Software Developer on WMFs new
Editor Engagement Experiments (E3) engineering team.

Ori grew up in Israel, Canada and the United States. He likes to read
philosophy, linguistics and fiction. He has a son, Noam, who is seven
months old, and may or may not be named after Noam Chomsky, and a wife,
Simona, who was definitely not named after Chomsky. He is a self-taught
programmer and has a weird love/hate relationship with schools and academic
institutions. When he can't fall asleep, he researches macabre topics on
Wikipedia, which is the worst possible way to cope with insomnia. He's
moving to the Bay Area from New York City and would appreciate your
consolations :-). Needless to say, he's very, very excited to join the
Wikimedia Foundation.

Ori is relocating to San Francisco later this month. So say hello to Ori
online. Hes available as @olivneh on our favorite irc channels including
#mediawiki and #wikimedia-dev. And drop by to see him when hes in SF!

Welcome Ori! Glad to see you onboard.*

Welcome, Ori. I'm losing you as a neighbor and gaining you as a
colleague. :) Best wishes and thanks for joining us.

Ori's also been a Wikimedian since 2005, with a healthy body of
contributions to English Wikipedia, Hebrew Wikipedia, and Commons (among
others). :-)

Ori joining WMF is really fantastic news from where I'm sitting, because it
means that the experiments team will be able to start expanding our scope.
If you'd like to see where we're at and contribute to our idea backlog,
there are docs on:

- Meta (research-oriented mostly):
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Editor_Engagement_Experiments
- English Wikipedia (includes an FAQ):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Editor_engagement_experiments

Welcome Ori. It's awesome to have you on board!

Steven
