This submission has been accepted for WikiConference North America 2022.


Wikidata's tenth birthday


Saturday Longer Sessions

Type of session:



Wikidata turns 10 at the end of October, 2022. There is a map of global activities. We can have a little online celebration, with quick talks and demos and commentary.

It's not organized yet, but several speakers/demonstrators have materials to show:

  • Minh Nguyen on how OpenStreetMap uses Wikidata information (and perhaps future prospects). Possible sources: [1], [2], [3], [4], [5] (p22 of SotM 2022 by Dsoua, Schott, and Lautenbach)
  • Andrew Lih, on many projects
  • Highlight of training materials from the regular Philadelphia WikiSalon
  • Pharos and econterms on a demo project on Wikispore showing data on nonprofit organizations drawn from Wikidata.
  • Room for more. We can actually sponsor a cake or something, but we have the problem that we are not all together.
