There are too many people here not understanding what is happening here.
What is happening, is that a large community has done a lot of great work creating Wikipedia. The project has needed and attracted a lot of money, which caused an administrative office to be created. This office is now trying to make itself more important, and tries to lead the project into a 'grand future'.
The truth is, they may be well-intentioned, but they are terribly misguided, and incompetent. There are no capable leaders, and.or managers there, they seem to have no understanding of what the project is about, and have spent a lot of money on software projects that failed. They are misguided in that they think they should steer the project, while in fact they should be serving the community.
In short, they are incompetent, and should be replaced. If they aren't, they will kill Wikipedia.
