Wikipedia Konkani komt online

Wikimediaan Darshan deelt zijn ervaringen door bij te dragen aan de Konkani Wikipedia. Video in Konkani. Video by Wikimedia India, freely licensed under CC-BY-SA 4.0.

De Konkani Wikipedia uit Goa kwam op 18 juni jongstleden online, na een rijpingsperiode van zo'n negen jaar. Het project had te maken met vele tegenslagen, maar de noeste arbeid van de redactionele gemeenschap, het merendeel afkomstig uit de deelstaat Goa, resulteerde in de volwassenwording van het project.

"Ik droom van het begin van een project ten dienste van de vrijheidsbeweging in Goa en de betrokkenheid van veel verschillende mensen, van studenten tot journalisten en opiniemakers. Ik wil ook samenwerking genereren met onderwijsinstituten om met de studenten de continuïteit te kunnen waarborgen, waarbij de bestaande Konkani gemeenschap leidinggevend zou kunnen zijn"

"Deel te zijn van de veranderingen die je nodig acht": Leigh Thelmadatter

Universitair docent en Wikipedia vrijwilligster, Leigh Thelmadatter hielp artikelen te schrijven variërend van de mexikaanse cuisine tot biografieën en kerken. Tegenwoordig werkt zij met studenten aan de Wikipedia pagina's over Mexico en z'n cultuur, en bereist zij het land op zoek naar waardevolle informatie.

"Ik denk dat Wikimedia en dergelijke ten minste de notie verspreiden dat we gemakkelijker meer informatie kunnen verschaffen aan meer mensen".

Wikidata, binnenkort op uw menu

At Wikimedia Sverige (Sweden), we like food, traveling, and open data. So we started thinking: What can we could do to make life a bit easier for the frequent flyer? With help from Wikidata, members decided to host a menu challenge for restaurants, around the world, to expand their menus with key information. Participants used Wikidata to provide labels, translations, and images.

Wikidata is a collection of structured data that can be edited by computers and people alike. A main focus is of course Wikipedia, but the possibilities are unlimited, which was what we wanted to show with this project.

Wikimedians urge the EU to protect freedom of panorama

Recently, the European Parliament amended recommendations that places restrictions across all European Union member states. The Wikimedia community has mobilized in response.

Update (July 13): On July 9, the European Parliament voted on the Reda Report. The paragraph addressing the Freedom of Panorama was ultimately deleted from the report. This means that for now, nothing has changed: countries that had Freedom of Panorama rights under their domestic laws still have them. Countries that lacked Freedom of Panorama rights under their domestic laws still do not have them.

ACLU files amended complaint on behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation

On March 10th, the Wikimedia Foundation joined a lawsuit against the NSA over its upstream surveillance program. A hearing is scheduled for late September on the government's recently filed motion to dismiss the lawsuit.
