Wikidata this month
By Andy Mabbett (
- The English-language Wikipedia has decided to deprecate Persondata in favour of Wikidata.
- National Gallery of Art and the J. Paul Getty Museum now have entries for all their paintings on Wikidata thanks to wiki project Sum of all Paintings
- Reasonator got some updates: it is now using external ID formatter URLs, has monolingual string support and better social network links
- Arbitrary access, allowing an article on one subject to call data from the Wikidata item about a different subject, continues to be rolled out across many WMF projects.
- Upcoming: Wikimania. There will be several talks and workshops related to Wikidata. Say hi at the "Ask Us Anything" session for Wikidata if you're there.
- A list of GLAM-related Wikidata pages is at d:Wikidata:GLAM
