Lydia_Pintscher added a project: Wikidata.

Wild brainstorming:

  • Presentation of all the cool things that happened since the last Wikimania, focused on non-WMDE things (external services, tools, games and such, also mobile).
  • How to transfer data to Wikidata via API, scripts and bots.
  • A vision of a Wikipedia with empty infobox templates, where all factual bits are managed via Wikidata. How things could work in the future and how to get there. Short presentation, then open it for discussion.
  • Our general vision of the year 2015. Mainly references, managing and reusing them. Also migration plans for Freebase and the growing number of open data sets out there.
