Intro

One of our friends, Jeroen_De_Dauw, is a member of the wikidata team. As it is a cool project, let's see where we can volunteer to help out.

Call For Participation

If you want to help out, add yourself to the Participants list. We'll meet on the regular Thursday evening meetings to discuss things. You can also volunteer directly at Wikidata: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikidata/Volunteers

Wikidata: where to start

Well, for starters have a look at their wiki-page: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikidata. You can also check the IRC at irc://irc.freenode.net/wikimedia-wikidata

Importing data to Wikidata

Cedric has already volunteered for 'Importing data to Wikidata'. Probably we'll be using the MySql and Pentaho tools on Kimball for this. More to come...
