Promoting free knowledge projects


As a multimedia designer at the Wikimedia Foundation (the nonprofit that hosts Wikipedia and other free knowledge projects), I produce and edit videos to bring attentionĀ to our work.

Structured Data on Commons

Structured data on Wikimedia Commons is multilingual information about a media file that can be understood by humans, with enough consistency that it can also be uniformly processed by machines.

Abstract Wikipedia and the wiki of functions

An animation that very briefly explains the Abstract Wikipedia project and what “functions” are. It shows how topics that are missing in one language, might created by functions (including sentence constructors) written by contributors.

From the project description:

The goal of Abstract Wikipedia is to let more people share more knowledge in more languages. Abstract Wikipedia is an extension of Wikidata. In Abstract Wikipedia, people can create and maintain Wikipedia articles in a language-independent way. A Wikipedia in a language can translate this language-independent article into its language. Code does the translation.

Wikilambda is a new Wikimedia project that allows anyone to create and maintain code. This is useful in many different ways. It provides a catalog of all kind of functions that anyone can call, write, maintain, and use. It also provides code that translates the language-independent article from Abstract Wikipedia into the language of a Wikipedia. This allows everyone to read the article in their language. Wikilambda will use knowledge about words and entities from Wikidata.

This will get us closer to a world where everyone can share in the sum of all knowledge.
