Back to February 2016

I attended Andy's sessions at VALA and they were inspiring! I enjoyed hearing why the other attendees were there and it started the wheels going in my brain about ways to harness Wikidata in the increasingly needed public contributions to the work that my colleagues and I do in the area of women's history in Australia through the Australian Women's Register (and of course ways that we can contribute and share). I've been in touch with another attendee at the workshop subsequently to start the process of working together via Wikidata, even applied internally in my organisation to see whether we can rustle up money for a Wikipedian-in-Residence! Also joined the Wikidata and Gendergap lists. A lot of personal pronouns here I know, but wanted you to know that Wikidata really resonated with me and I think the tour was a great strategy. Thanks to all involved.

Alas, still haven't made any more edits to Wikipedia and Wikidata - and had to Google how to sign my name in a talk page - but I'll get there! Hopefully this works Helouise (talk) 23:37, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
