Wikidata Tour Down Under
Andy Mabbett spent three weeks touring Australia, talking about Wikidata and about his GLAM activities, following which he spent five days in Jakarta, Indonesia], also talking about Wikidata. His audiences included librarians and other GLAM staff, academics, academic publishers, and Wikipedians, plus staff of the Indonesian government's Language Research & Development Body. Slides and other resources are on line, and links to videos of some talks will be added to that page as they become available.
Outcomes to date include a VALA conference session video (accessible to conference attendees only), an ALIA-WA blog post, Wikidata makes Wikipedia a database. Let the fun begin - an article by Mark Pesce, in The Register, and a large number of new labels and descriptions in various Indonesian languages.
