🌿About me

Hello there! I'm Alan, username Angal26. This is my volunteer account, and I am a casual contributor from Singapore. My background is in Southeast Asia, China and Central Asia. I am personally interested in promoting Open Government projects via Linked Open Data. As a proponent of the 5* Open Data, I have given talks at multiple events, promoting open data and free knowledge across the world.

I was previously the Advisor to the Prime Minister of the Kyrgyz Republic (until 2020) on pro-bono basis, and promoted digitisation of cultural & heritage sites for digital tourism and more open data across various government agencies.

Topics of interests: Singapore, manga, anime, Marvel, Aikido, books, calisthenics, Kenjutsu

I am mostly active on Wikidata, Mix'n'match.
