WikidataCon: Giving more people more access to more knowledge | Science and the Web
Amyluv's bookmarks 2017-12-12
At the end of October, I attended WikidataCon 2017 in Berlin. My participation was made possible thanks to the generous support of Wikimedia Austria, so a big shout-out to the great team here in Vienna!
I’ve been intrigued by the project for quite some time, and I wanted to learn more as to how we at Open Knowledge Maps can contribute to this evolving ecosystem of linked open data. And what an ecosystem it has become! As Lydia Pintscher, product manager of Wikidata, showed in her presentation on the occasion of Wikidata’s 5th birthday, the database now comprises of 37.8 million items contributed by some 17,600 editors."
