Late in 2019, we finally filled our one vacant spot on our board of directors — we had been holding out until we found the right person and we finally have! And then towards the end of the year we all got distracted by holidays and world events and never got around to formally announcing that we have a new addition to our board.
With great pleasure I would like to announce that Paula LeDieu, an amazingly connected person who seems to know everyone, has joined the MetaBrainz Foundation Board of Directors! I first met Paula when I was bootstrapping MusicBrainz and pondering how to setup a foundation for the project — we would continuously bump into each other at various conferences in the world. Paula’s professional history includes a lot organizations that early on shaped the internet, including the BBC, iCommons and Mozilla. Paula’s professional experience and connections will be a great asset to our organization.
Paula lives in Sydney, Australia, stretching our board of directors across 3 continents and far too many time-zones. Thank you for agreeing to join our board of directors and welcome to the team, Paula!
