    Welcome everyone to the very first
    WikidataCon Award 2019.
  • 4:09 - 4:11
    It's so great that you're here.
  • 4:11 - 4:13
    (cheers and applause)
  • 4:19 - 4:23
    I have some friends who are actually not
    at Wikimedia, that happens,
  • 4:23 - 4:26
    and I often tell them stories
    about Wikimedia,
  • 4:26 - 4:27
    and somehow they all believe
  • 4:27 - 4:31
    that Wikimedia is something
    like a never-ending party,
  • 4:31 - 4:35
    full of goals, awards, fun ideas,
  • 4:35 - 4:39
    amazing people--that's true, actually--
    and new sticker designs every week.
  • 4:39 - 4:41
    (laughter)
  • 4:41 - 4:44
    I don't think that their image
    of Wikimedia is going to change
  • 4:44 - 4:45
    after this award.
  • 4:47 - 4:49
    But, actually, seriously,
  • 4:49 - 4:51
    I think it's super important
    that we celebrate together,
  • 4:51 - 4:53
    that we have fun together.
  • 4:54 - 4:57
    There's nothing more nice in the world
    than being proud of each other
  • 4:57 - 5:01
    and actually acknowledge
    the work that you do,
  • 5:01 - 5:04
    that all of you do here, together.
  • 5:05 - 5:06
    That's just so cool.
  • 5:10 - 5:13
    2019 was a year of Wikimedia Awards,
  • 5:13 - 5:17
    and the WikidataCon Award
    is actually the little sister
  • 5:17 - 5:21
    of the Coolest Tool Award that took place
    in Wikimania in Stockholm
  • 5:21 - 5:23
    for those who were there.
  • 5:23 - 5:28
    And some people
    from the Wikidata community came to me
  • 5:28 - 5:30
    after the Coolest Tool Award,
    and they were like,
  • 5:30 - 5:34
    "We should have this for Wikidata too.
    We should have it at WikidataCon."
  • 5:34 - 5:35
    And here we are.
  • 5:35 - 5:38
    Second iteration, as you know,
    if you iterate on things,
  • 5:38 - 5:42
    they can only get better,
    so WikidataCon Award 2019!
  • 5:45 - 5:49
    A few weeks ago, we were asking
    for nominations for this award,
  • 5:49 - 5:53
    for like your favorite projects,
    no matter if it's a tool, initiative,
  • 5:53 - 5:54
    outreach activity.
  • 5:54 - 5:56
    Anything could be anything.
  • 5:56 - 6:00
    I just want to say thank you so much
    from our side for sending us nominations
  • 6:00 - 6:04
    and actually describing
    why this or that project is so cool
  • 6:04 - 6:06
    that it should win an award.
  • 6:06 - 6:07
    Really, thank you very much.
  • 6:10 - 6:12
    We are awarding projects today
  • 6:12 - 6:15
    because Wikimedia's all about
    collaboration, right?
  • 6:15 - 6:20
    But behind the projects,
    there are actually people,
  • 6:20 - 6:21
    it's the Wikidata community.
  • 6:21 - 6:23
    So think of the people
    than the award of the projects.
  • 6:23 - 6:26
    Don't forget the people,
    they're amazing and they're important.
  • 6:26 - 6:27
    But we award projects.
  • 6:33 - 6:35
    As said, we had a nomination process.
  • 6:35 - 6:39
    There was a Selection Committee;
    they are all in the room,
  • 6:39 - 6:43
    Envel and Sjoerd and Amir and me,
  • 6:44 - 6:47
    and there were more people involved.
  • 6:47 - 6:50
    Actually, also non-Wikimedia people,
    for example, my friend Moona,
  • 6:51 - 6:57
    who you will find out what she did later
    in this award ceremony was also involved,
  • 6:57 - 7:02
    and Liam of course,
    as the second host, ringmaster on stage
  • 7:02 - 7:04
    who will talk a lot this evening.
  • 7:05 - 7:08
    And Lea Laqua, who did
    the communication, as always
  • 7:08 - 7:12
    and just was awesome and helped us.
  • 7:12 - 7:14
    We are awarding projects
    in nine different categories:
  • 7:14 - 7:18
    Editing, Community Building, Ecosystem,
    Newcomer-friendly,
  • 7:18 - 7:21
    Wikimedia Integration, Outreach,
    Quality, Languages, Multimedia.
  • 7:21 - 7:27
    If you have listened to the introduction
    that you just see or hear,
  • 7:27 - 7:31
    and maybe have even written down
    some of the Q numbers,
  • 7:31 - 7:36
    you will be able to go on the WikidataCon
    Tourist Tour on Sunday, or on Monday,
  • 7:37 - 7:40
    and find what is on this map.
  • 7:40 - 7:42
    But I'm not going to show you longer.
  • 7:44 - 7:47
    Yeah... sorry, I spoiled the next slide.
  • 7:47 - 7:51
    It's actually music from Lucas
    who's also involved, our amazing pianist.
  • 7:52 - 7:55
    ♪ (fun piano music) ♪
  • 7:59 - 8:01
    (applause)
  • 8:07 - 8:10
    And we come to the very first
    award category.
  • 8:12 - 8:17
    It's, of course, Editing,
    because if we don't edit, no data,
  • 8:17 - 8:18
    no Wikidata.
  • 8:18 - 8:21
    So this is like the source of everything.
  • 8:23 - 8:28
    I'm very, very happy to announce
    this year's winner
  • 8:28 - 8:30
    in the category Editing.
  • 8:32 - 8:35
    ♪ (dramatic piano music) ♪
  • 8:37 - 8:39
    Oh, sorry...
  • 8:39 - 8:41

    (laughter)
  • 8:41 - 8:43
    OpenRefine!
  • 8:43 - 8:45
    (cheers and applause)
  • 8:55 - 8:59
    So, I know there is at least one person
    who contributed to OpenRefine
  • 8:59 - 9:00
    in the audience.
  • 9:00 - 9:03
    Can you wave? You don't have
    to come up on stage, but wave.
  • 9:03 - 9:07
    And everyone else who did something.
    Wave. Woo-hoo!
  • 9:07 - 9:08
    (applause)
  • 9:08 - 9:09
    Thank you so much.
  • 9:13 - 9:16
    Okay, I mean, we just can't say
    OpenRefine is cool
  • 9:16 - 9:18
    and everyone believes it,
    and we can go on.
  • 9:18 - 9:21
    But actually, maybe some of you don't know
    what OpenRefine actually does.
  • 9:21 - 9:25
    So for each award,
    we also have a project description.
  • 9:25 - 9:28
    I'm handing now over to Liam
  • 9:28 - 9:30
    who's going to walk you
    through the project.
  • 9:30 - 9:31
    Yeah.
  • 9:31 - 9:34
    So the great irony of me,
  • 9:34 - 9:37
    describing one of the most
    technically clever tools
  • 9:37 - 9:38
    available in the Wikiverse...
  • 9:38 - 9:40
    (laughter)
  • 9:40 - 9:44
    ...to one of the most
    well-informed audiences
  • 9:44 - 9:45
    about the Wikiverse.
  • 9:46 - 9:47
    But if you have used--
  • 9:48 - 9:50
    we've seen some of the people
    in the audience
  • 9:50 - 9:53
    who have been building OpenRefine.
  • 9:53 - 9:58
    Who in this audience
    has utilized OpenRefine?
  • 9:58 - 10:00
    Great! Okay. You don't need to know.
  • 10:03 - 10:05
    For the benefit of the tape
    and for the benefit of people
  • 10:05 - 10:09
    who have not personally
    utilized this software--
  • 10:09 - 10:13
    while we provide the prize
    behind the scenes here--
  • 10:13 - 10:19
    the importance of this tool is that
    it allows to take messy data and clean it
  • 10:19 - 10:24
    to use for uploading or downloading,
    or connecting to Wikidata
  • 10:24 - 10:28
    and other things, but especially Wikidata.
  • 10:28 - 10:31
    Originally, a Google project
    that is now being turned into
  • 10:31 - 10:37
    a community-led project
    for maintenance and of messy data.
  • 10:39 - 10:46
    The jury decided this deserved the award
    for Editing for two primary criteria.
  • 10:46 - 10:48
    One, for the reconciliation function.
  • 10:49 - 10:53
    It's one thing to clean messy data
    for anyone's use,
  • 10:53 - 10:57
    but the ability to then connect it
    to the Wikidata items
  • 10:57 - 11:00
    to provide the reconciliation service.
  • 11:00 - 11:01
    Does this mean "that thing"?
  • 11:01 - 11:04
    Does this mean "that thing"?
    Yes, no, or maybe.
  • 11:04 - 11:08
    It's extraordinarily important
    for then taking your personal dataset
  • 11:08 - 11:12
    and connecting it
    to the wider Wikidata universe,
  • 11:12 - 11:14
    semi-autonomously.
  • 11:14 - 11:18
    They also describe
    that the editing functions,
  • 11:18 - 11:22
    the ability to export tabular data
    and then use it directly
  • 11:22 - 11:26
    or into quick statements
    was incredibly useful and powerful.
  • 11:26 - 11:28
    And for those reasons,
  • 11:28 - 11:33
    the Committee decided that OpenRefine
    deserves the Editing Award
  • 11:33 - 11:36
    for the inaugural Wikidata Awards.
  • 11:37 - 11:39
    (applause)
  • 11:42 - 11:48
    And so for the actual presentation
    of the award itself,
  • 11:48 - 11:51
    given this is a project on Wiki...
  • 11:53 - 11:56
    We are going to see now, live...
  • 11:57 - 11:59
    Oh, wait a minute...
  • 12:03 - 12:07
    Sorry... it's just... we need it because--
  • 12:08 - 12:10
    As you see, nothing is here.
  • 12:13 - 12:15
    (soft giggles)
  • 12:16 - 12:18
    - But...
    - (Liam) Hopefully, this works.
  • 12:18 - 12:19
    (Birgit) I hope it works.
  • 12:22 - 12:24
    (Liam) If you refresh the page...
  • 12:25 - 12:28
    (Birgit) Oh... we have a bug,
    I think, in the process?
  • 12:29 - 12:31
    (laughter)
  • 12:34 - 12:37
    (Birgit) Imagine that the award
    is already here on the page.
  • 12:37 - 12:39
    (laughter)
  • 12:39 - 12:40
    (applause)
  • 12:40 - 12:42
    Go back and describe the picture.
  • 12:43 - 12:48
    Okay. So, it will happen soon.
    We'll check later in the day.
  • 12:48 - 12:50
    (laughter)
  • 12:50 - 12:52
    But I can show you something here.
  • 12:53 - 12:56
    So that map that was shown earlier
  • 12:56 - 12:59
    was significant
    for the purposes of the award
  • 13:01 - 13:05
    because this is... you did the work
    of taking these photographs,
  • 13:05 - 13:08
    so you should describe what the award is.
  • 13:10 - 13:12
    So, Wikidata is in our hearts, right?
  • 13:12 - 13:16
    But for a moment, last Sunday evening,
  • 13:16 - 13:19
    it was also in a very public space
    [on there] in Berlin,
  • 13:20 - 13:24
    So we went through the streets,
    not to random buildings
  • 13:24 - 13:27
    but to specific buildings--
    which ones you need to find out.
  • 13:27 - 13:31
    It's an interactive award,
    so it's kind of a riddle for you.
  • 13:32 - 13:36
    I mean, this one is probably obvious
    that it's Technikmuseum,
  • 13:36 - 13:39
    but I can promise you
    the others are not that easy.
  • 13:40 - 13:44
    And so we projected it to the walls
    of the buildings that we found
  • 13:44 - 13:49
    kind of fit the category
    the awards get awarded in,
  • 13:51 - 13:53
    and had it for a moment
    in the public space
  • 13:53 - 13:54
    and took a photo of that.
  • 13:56 - 13:57
    That's the story of the award.
  • 14:00 - 14:01
    Touching, right?
  • 14:01 - 14:02
    (laughter)
  • 14:02 - 14:09
    Well, the idea is we provide the "image,"
    the one-time-only piece of public ad,
  • 14:09 - 14:13
    temporary public ad
    as the image on the project page.
  • 14:13 - 14:16
    - That's the award.
    - That's the award.
  • 14:16 - 14:18
    - Are we there already?
    - Is it loaded?
  • 14:22 - 14:23
    - Okay.
    - Nope.
  • 14:23 - 14:28
    Okay. So just use your imagination,
    and we go on to the next...
  • 14:28 - 14:30
    I'm sure you have it.
  • 14:30 - 14:32
    - Oh, the Wi-Fi is off.
    - (man) No.
  • 14:32 - 14:34
    - Ours? Yeah, it's not us.
    - That's the Internet.
  • 14:34 - 14:35
    It's not our task.
  • 14:37 - 14:38
    - We just go, right?
    - Yeah.
  • 14:38 - 14:40
    Okay, cool. Music.
  • 14:40 - 14:41
    ♪ (slow piano music) ♪
  • 14:41 - 14:43
    Oh, no, wait. Wrong direction...
  • 14:56 - 14:59
    Okay. Other than editing,
  • 14:59 - 15:01
    what is important for Wikidata
    Community Building?
  • 15:01 - 15:06
    Any activity that helps to develop
    or to strengthen a community,
  • 15:06 - 15:10
    and we're like way, way...
    way, way more activities
  • 15:10 - 15:12
    that you can possibly award in the world.
  • 15:12 - 15:18
    But in the end,
    there's a winner for this year.
  • 15:22 - 15:24
    And the winner is...
  • 15:24 - 15:26
    ♪ (dramatic piano music) ♪
  • 15:29 - 15:31
    WikiProject India!
  • 15:31 - 15:33
    (cheers and applause)
  • 15:43 - 15:45
    Congratulations.
  • 15:45 - 15:47
    I think maybe
    there are people in the room.
  • 15:47 - 15:49
    Can you wave if you are here?
  • 15:49 - 15:51
    Yay! Cool!
  • 15:51 - 15:53
    (applause)
  • 15:53 - 15:55
    Thank you so much. Congratulations!
  • 15:58 - 16:00
    And I'm handing it over to you, I guess.
  • 16:00 - 16:02
    We can also try the photo thing again?
  • 16:02 - 16:03
    Maybe, maybe?
  • 16:05 - 16:06
    - No.
    - Okay, no.
  • 16:06 - 16:08
    That was a definite "no" for me.
  • 16:09 - 16:13
    So, while we upload that file to Commons
  • 16:13 - 16:17
    and eventually place it
    on the project page itself
  • 16:17 - 16:20
    as the award, it's the trophy,
    for the project page,
  • 16:20 - 16:24
    Wikiproject India, which in my opinion,
    has the coolest logo award.
  • 16:26 - 16:27
    Does anyone...
  • 16:27 - 16:30
    are there any other
    Wikiprojects in Wikidata
  • 16:30 - 16:36
    that utilize the national flag logo
    with the Wikidata bars?
  • 16:38 - 16:39
    I mean, that's pretty cool.
  • 16:39 - 16:44
    So, Wikidata Project India
    as would be, hopefully, fairly evident
  • 16:44 - 16:50
    is about for and by the Indian community,
    the languages of the Indian sub-continent
  • 16:50 - 16:56
    and supporting the content
    and the contributors
  • 16:56 - 17:00
    to that geography culture history.
  • 17:01 - 17:04
    The jury decided
  • 17:04 - 17:09
    that this was particularly
    worthy of this award.
  • 17:09 - 17:11
    This community was
    particularly worthy of this award
  • 17:11 - 17:16
    because of its ability to share skills
    to and among each other,
  • 17:16 - 17:21
    the providing offline groups
    to run technical workshops,
  • 17:21 - 17:24
    to run editathons,
    to run upload activities,

    to build a community
    that provides skills to each other
  • 17:34 - 17:40
    and builds stability and community
    locally is fantastic,
  • 17:40 - 17:45

  • 17:45 - 17:50
    among itself and to the wider Wikiverse
    through a regular newsletter
  • 17:50 - 17:52
    and active accounts on social media,
  • 17:52 - 17:56

    50 India properties,

    now have Wikidata items about them.
  • 18:22 - 18:23

    it's already there.

    So, the next category
    is for category Ecosystem.
  • 20:11 - 20:14
    That's the word
    that we often use for anything...
  • 20:18 - 20:22
    that shows how connected Wikidata is
    in the world with other projects,
  • 20:22 - 20:25
    partners, and so on.

    I think it's actually

    Ecosystem, it sounds nice.

    (cheers and applause)
  • 21:06 - 21:11
    Okay. Let's have a deeper look
    into Sum of All Paintings.
  • 21:12 - 21:14
    While we upload the file.
  • 21:14 - 21:17
    The files themselves,
    the buildings themselves
  • 21:17 - 21:21
    are significant to the category,
  • 21:21 - 21:26
    but to find out why,
    you might have to ask later.
  • 21:26 - 21:30
    Sum of All Paintings, SoAP,
    does not have a logo of its own
  • 21:30 - 21:34
    so these are for Commons pictures
    that depict soap bubbles...
  • 21:34 - 21:37
    (laughter)
  • 21:37 - 21:38
    ...of many.
  • 21:38 - 21:44
    A surprisingly large number of paintings
    about soap and soap bubbles.
  • 21:44 - 21:45
    I kid you not.
  • 21:45 - 21:49
    So, Sum of All Paintings
    was the brainchild
  • 21:49 - 21:55
    to create a Wikidata item
    about every notable painting.
  • 21:56 - 22:01
    Notable in the context of
    is hung in a public gallery,
  • 22:01 - 22:05
    a major gallery, or is painted by a person
    who is known as a famous painter.
  • 22:05 - 22:09
    Not every painting that has ever existed,
    but every notable painting.
  • 22:09 - 22:16
    This has produced lots of work lists
    that have resulted from that
  • 22:16 - 22:21
    and lots of side projects around that,
    as in Ecosystem.
  • 22:21 - 22:24
    So, every painter, every collection.
  • 22:25 - 22:29
    What made this project cool
    from the perspective of the jury
  • 22:29 - 22:35
    was the scale of the leadership,
  • 22:35 - 22:37
    of the quality, and of the impact.
  • 22:38 - 22:41
    These are some of the demonstrations
    of the work lists,
  • 22:41 - 22:43
    demonstration of the content.
  • 22:43 - 22:46
    Don't expect to read this.
    It's scrolling through quickly
  • 22:46 - 22:49
    to demonstrate the sheer volume
    of work behind it,
  • 22:49 - 22:53
    the leadership, the tools,
    the processes, the workflows,
  • 22:53 - 22:57
    this you might recognize
    has now been turned into [integravity]
  • 22:57 - 23:02
    which is a tool usable by other projects
    for their workflow management
  • 23:02 - 23:05
    and quality assessment criteria.
  • 23:05 - 23:10
    The consistently high standard
    of the items at the upload stage
  • 23:11 - 23:13
    and also at the mass upload stage,
  • 23:13 - 23:20
    and then also the individual manual,
    careful work to curate items
  • 23:20 - 23:25
    at an individual
    and as a handcrafted list level.
  • 23:25 - 23:29
    So it really shows the breadth
    of quality and quantity
  • 23:29 - 23:32
    of the Wikidata ecosystem,
  • 23:32 - 23:36
    and the impact Sum of All Paintings
  • 23:36 - 23:39
    has proven incredibly important
  • 23:39 - 23:45
    for demonstrating that GLAM datasets
    can work with each other,

    Cool! Thank you.

    (applause)
  • 25:30 - 25:33
    So there's actually a fun story
    what happened
  • 25:33 - 25:39
    when we were trying to find a good spot
    to project Ateliers Wikidata à Paris
  • 25:39 - 25:42
    against the walls
    of a certain building in Berlin.
  • 25:42 - 25:45
    We were like trying
    and holding up a projector,
  • 25:45 - 25:48
    and suddenly a person approached us
    and maybe you are watching,
  • 25:48 - 25:50
    it was really nice to meet you.
  • 25:51 - 25:56
    So the person approached us and said,
    "Oh! I just edited Wikidata yesterday."
  • 25:58 - 26:02
    And we were like, "Oh, that's great.
    You didn't see anything, okay?"
  • 26:03 - 26:04
    (laughter)
  • 26:05 - 26:07
    And I think he didn't reveal
    the secret, that's really nice.
  • 26:07 - 26:09
    It was really nice to meet you. Thank you.
  • 26:09 - 26:12
    But just as a tip,
  • 26:12 - 26:16
    if you ever plan a secret Wikidata mission
    and no one should know,
  • 26:16 - 26:19
    be aware that Wikidata's editors
    are everywhere
  • 26:19 - 26:21
    and you would not think, right?
  • 26:21 - 26:23
    So it can happen anytime.
  • 26:25 - 26:26
    Okay.
  • 26:28 - 26:29
    Let's have a look.
  • 26:30 - 26:32
    (Liam) I'm sorry...
    (Birgit laughs)
  • 26:33 - 26:38
    The Wikidata Ateliers à Paris is a series
    of newcomer-friendly workshops,
  • 26:38 - 26:42
    introductory workshops
    at the Wikimedia France office in Paris
  • 26:42 - 26:48
    that have been held over several years
    on a consistent schedule
  • 26:48 - 26:52
    to build a community
    to be a welcoming home
  • 26:52 - 26:55
    for a large city,
  • 26:55 - 27:00
    to slowly grow
    and steadily invite new people
  • 27:00 - 27:03
    and bring them into our family.
  • 27:03 - 27:09
    The jury decided that this was worthy
    of particular mention
  • 27:10 - 27:13
    of the various kinds
    of outreach to newcomers
  • 27:13 - 27:16
    and newbies across the Wikiverse...
  • 27:16 - 27:18
    there we have the plushy matching.
  • 27:20 - 27:22
    ...because of its consistency.
  • 27:23 - 27:26
    So there are lots of outreach activities
    that have happened
  • 27:26 - 27:32
    for newcomers across Wikimedia
    and across Wikidata in particular.
  • 27:36 - 27:39
    But this one has been going for years.
  • 27:39 - 27:42
    That is quite impressive...
  • 27:44 - 27:47
    to keep working at something like that,
  • 27:47 - 27:52
    and equally, obviously,
    for its welcoming atmosphere
  • 27:52 - 27:54
    and consistently welcoming
    atmosphere over that time.
  • 27:54 - 27:57
    The Newcomer-friendly award
    goes to a project
  • 27:57 - 28:01
    that has demonstrated its friendliness
    to newcomers, quite naturally.

    Yeah, it was one of the most
    difficult photos to take

    it fitted to the category,
  • 30:04 - 30:06
    maybe not to Wikidata Infobox
    on Commons so much,
  • 30:06 - 30:08
    but it fitted to the category.
  • 30:09 - 30:12
    And thank you very much,
    and we are having a deeper look
  • 30:12 - 30:16
    into what actually Wikidata's
    Infobox on Commons does.
  • 30:18 - 30:19
    Yeah.
  • 30:19 - 30:26
    So, as any of you who were here
    for the birthday presents
  • 30:26 - 30:27
    will have heard this,
  • 30:27 - 30:33
    has since been improved and expanded
    in terms of Wikidata on Commons.
  • 30:33 - 30:37
    But the jury found that this was
    particularly important and noteworthy
  • 30:37 - 30:39
    for the Integration category.
  • 30:39 - 30:42
    Wikidata Infobox on Commons
    is the template
  • 30:42 - 30:46
    that allows you to put
    a Wikipedia-like box of structured data
  • 30:46 - 30:51
    on the category about that thing
    on Wikimedia Commons.
  • 30:51 - 30:55
    Most important, because it's multilingual.
  • 30:55 - 31:00
    It's the first time we've really been able
    to show Commons is a multilingual project
  • 31:00 - 31:05
    because it works in all languages
    with one template.
  • 31:06 - 31:12
    This is one of Mike's model examples
  • 31:12 - 31:16
    for the project Telescopes.
  • 31:21 - 31:25
    The importance of the project...
  • 31:25 - 31:27
    being the complexity.
  • 31:27 - 31:31
    It's hard to make a screenshot
    of a long infobox.
  • 31:31 - 31:32
    (laughter)
  • 31:34 - 31:37
    So the jury found this project
    was particularly useful
  • 31:37 - 31:40
    for Wikidata integration
    for three main criteria.
  • 31:40 - 31:43
    One is the flexibility.
  • 31:43 - 31:49
    It's the fact that this one template
    works with over 300 properties
  • 31:50 - 31:52
    and can pull them in...
  • 31:52 - 31:57
    with one field.
  • 31:57 - 32:01
    The scale of this single tool
  • 32:01 - 32:04
    was the second criteria
    the jury found really important.
  • 32:04 - 32:05
    That this is used
  • 32:05 - 32:09
    across two and a half million
    categories on Commons,
  • 32:09 - 32:13
    demonstrates that it is useful
    to such a huge proportion
  • 32:13 - 32:19
    of one of the most utilized
    sister projects in the Wikiverse.
  • 32:19 - 32:23
    And that you can pull together
    these two projects
  • 32:23 - 32:28
    to such a high degree of connectivity
    at such a high scale
  • 32:28 - 32:30
    is a fantastic demonstration.
  • 32:30 - 32:34
    And demonstration
    proof to Wikimedia Commons
  • 32:34 - 32:39
    and to the rest of the Wikimedia projects
  • 32:39 - 32:45
    that Wikidata can serve information
    that is useful, that is multilingual,
  • 32:45 - 32:47
    that is available right now.
  • 32:48 - 32:53
    Arguably, first and best,
    in terms of demonstrations
  • 32:53 - 32:58
    that Wikidata, as a service delivery,
    as a support for the other projects
  • 32:58 - 33:01
    has shown this
  • 33:01 - 33:06
    to the non-Wikidata
    community of Wikimedia

    (Mike) The infobox is based on [a poem]
  • 34:06 - 34:08
    written by [Doug Taylor], [Use of Access].
  • 34:08 - 34:10
    He deserves a lot of the credit for that.
  • 34:10 - 34:14
    And all the feedback that comes to me
    is being given to the Infobox.
  • 34:14 - 34:17
    Whenever something's not quite right,
    people will come and say that,
  • 34:17 - 34:18
    and that's incredibly useful.
  • 34:18 - 34:20
    So thank you for anyone who has done that.
  • 34:20 - 34:21
    (Birgit) Woo-hoo!
  • 34:21 - 34:23
    (applause)
  • 34:26 - 34:30
    Yeah, we wish to reemphasize
    for this award and for all awards,
  • 34:30 - 34:35
    they're often in some individual people
    who have done a lot of visible work
  • 34:35 - 34:38
    for which they deserve credit.
  • 34:38 - 34:41
    But there's also a lot of people
    who have done a lot of pieces of work,
  • 34:41 - 34:44
    the long tail of all Wikimedia work,
  • 34:44 - 34:47
    and all the feedback
    provided by users around
  • 34:47 - 34:50
    in more or less formal ways,
  • 34:50 - 34:57
    all of which deserves some credit
    for bringing these projects to fruition.
  • 34:59 - 35:01
    - This is why we award projects...
    - Not people.
  • 35:01 - 35:03
    ...not people.

    - (man) [How did you name that?]
    - I forget.
  • 36:53 - 36:55
    The Wikidata Lab.
  • 36:56 - 37:00
    This is a series of thematic edit-a-thons
    and presentations
  • 37:00 - 37:03
    at the University of São Paulo in Brazil.
  • 37:03 - 37:07
    Monthly meetings
    which have brought together researchers--
  • 37:07 - 37:11
    so academics, people
    in the professional sectors like GLAM,
  • 37:11 - 37:13
    students, and Wikimedians
  • 37:13 - 37:18
    who might be now or might formerly be
    in any of those categories,
  • 37:19 - 37:21
    to work together, to learn from each other
  • 37:21 - 37:27
    and share their experiences
    in a regular project,
  • 37:27 - 37:30
    a regular community forum.
  • 37:31 - 37:35
    The jury found this project
  • 37:35 - 37:40
    particularly worthy
    for recognition in Outreach
  • 37:40 - 37:42
    because of its sustainability.
  • 37:42 - 37:46
    So it has been, like some
    of the other prizes this evening,
  • 37:46 - 37:48
    has been running for a number of years,
  • 37:48 - 37:53
    has run regular activities
    over that period of time
  • 37:53 - 37:55
    on different topics.
  • 37:55 - 37:58
    The consistency of that outreach work
  • 37:58 - 38:00
    is significant.
  • 38:01 - 38:06
    The practicality of project
    has been noted.
  • 38:06 - 38:12
    So that is the attempt to provide skills,
    practical skills to people
  • 38:12 - 38:14
    in this particular community,
    this particular language
  • 38:14 - 38:19
    that is shareable among
    that wider community of the language,
  • 38:19 - 38:24
    so it's one city, but across
    an entire language community,
  • 38:24 - 38:27
    which is on several continents,
  • 38:27 - 38:33
    and the focus on bringing people
    from different Wikimedia projects,
  • 38:33 - 38:35
    not just talking to Wikidata people,
  • 38:35 - 38:40
    but talking to Wikipedia people,
    to Commons people, Wikisource people,
  • 38:40 - 38:43
    and connecting each other
    with these new skills
  • 38:43 - 38:46
    about how Wikidata can be helpful to them,
  • 38:46 - 38:50
    particularly for,
    as the nomination statement
  • 38:50 - 38:52
    also pointed out,
  • 38:52 - 38:55
    to focus on a Global South community
  • 38:57 - 38:59
    in doing that work.
  • 38:59 - 39:05
    This is not people in the office
    in America or Germany,
  • 39:05 - 39:10
    this is people in the community
    working to share skills to each other.
  • 39:10 - 39:12
    Finally, the integration, as mentioned.
  • 39:12 - 39:15
    The work across different parts
    of the Wikimedia ecosystem
  • 39:15 - 39:20
    has made Wikidata highly accepted,
    adopted, and integrated
  • 39:20 - 39:27
    across the Portuguese Wikimedia projects
    in a way that is notable
  • 39:27 - 39:31
    compared to some of the other large
    language communities.
  • 39:31 - 39:34
    This is a screenshot
    of the YouTube channel
  • 39:34 - 39:37
    of all of the videos from this series.
  • 39:37 - 39:39
    They're all available,
    they're all live-streamed,
  • 39:39 - 39:43
    they've all been shared on Commons
    and YouTube, and various platforms.
  • 39:43 - 39:47
    So, the ability to then send
    that information to other communities
  • 39:47 - 39:49
    was part of the design of this project.
  • 39:49 - 39:53
    It's not just for São Paulo,
    not just for the students,
  • 39:53 - 39:57
    or not only for the students,
    but for the wider community.
  • 39:57 - 40:04
    So, for that, the jury has declared
    Wikidata Lab the winner.
  • 40:04 - 40:06

  • 42:43 - 42:45
    (laughter)
  • 42:47 - 42:50
    It's an influential project.
  • 42:51 - 42:54
    This is a service which allows you
    to report authority-control lists,
  • 42:54 - 43:01
    lists of vocabularies
    from external providers of a list of...
  • 43:01 - 43:05
    controlled vocabularies
    and connect them, match them
  • 43:05 - 43:09
    to Wikidata items, and say, "Yes,
    this over in that external repository
  • 43:09 - 43:12
    is that in our repository."
  • 43:13 - 43:18
    In an automated,
    semi-automated manual approach,

    game approach, various methods
    of achieving that matching process.
  • 43:22 - 43:25
    Create new items,
    if it doesn't exist already,
  • 43:25 - 43:29
    reject the item if it's not relevant
    to Wikidata at all.
  • 43:30 - 43:36
    The jury is particularly impressed
    by this project for the Quality award
  • 43:36 - 43:41
    because it is fundamental now
  • 43:41 - 43:44
    to how Wikidata works.
  • 43:44 - 43:49
    Introduced in 2003,
    Mix'n'match became core.
  • 43:49 - 43:53
    Who would consider Mix'n'match
    to be a standard part
  • 43:53 - 43:57
    of their Wikidata workflow
    on almost a daily basis?
  • 43:58 - 44:00
    A large proportion of the audience.
  • 44:01 - 44:02
    (laughter)
  • 44:04 - 44:08
    The influential work of Mix'n'match
  • 44:08 - 44:11
    is also noted for this Quality award
  • 44:11 - 44:16
    because of its ability to make wide
    and deep connections
  • 44:16 - 44:19
    of our collections of content
    and vocabularies
  • 44:19 - 44:21
    to external...
  • 44:21 - 44:26
    many external vocabulary lists,
  • 44:26 - 44:28
    controlled lists,
  • 44:28 - 44:31
    to connect them and make
    what has been termed Wikidata,
  • 44:31 - 44:34
    termed "the Internet's duct tape,"
  • 44:34 - 44:40
    holding all of these disparate systems
    that have their own authority lists
  • 44:40 - 44:42
    but don't talk to each other,
  • 44:42 - 44:45
    and we're able to connect
    them all to each other.
  • 44:45 - 44:51
    Another description which I heard recently
    was the Wood Wide Web,
  • 44:51 - 44:54
    as in the mycelial network--
  • 44:54 - 44:59
    the root structure underneath the soil
    of the forest that is the Internet
  • 44:59 - 45:01
    connecting all of the forest together.
  • 45:01 - 45:04
    Mix'n'match has become
    so fundamental to Wikidata,
  • 45:04 - 45:09
    which has made Wikidata so fundamental
    to the architecture of the Internet.
  • 45:09 - 45:12
    For that, we award it the Quality award.
  • 45:20 - 45:21
    (quiet laughter)
  • 45:21 - 45:24
    For that, we will award the Quality award.

    this conference has the theme:
  • 46:15 - 46:17
    Languages, Wikidata Languages.
  • 46:17 - 46:21
    And so, that's why we also have
    a category Languages--

    anything that helps to increase
    multilingual content and so on, and so on,
  • 46:27 - 46:28

    We'll talk more about it.
    Let's talk about it.
  • 46:49 - 46:51
    Alright, let's look at Menu Challenge.
  • 46:51 - 46:57
    Do we have anyone who helped create
    Menu Challenge here in the audience?
  • 47:00 - 47:02
    No? Yes? We have one?
  • 47:02 - 47:04
    Do we have anyone who was a participant
  • 47:04 - 47:07
    in either of the rounds
    of the Menu Challenge?
  • 47:07 - 47:10
    A couple here in the audience. Excellent.
  • 47:10 - 47:13
    So the Wikidata Menu Challenge #tastydata,
  • 47:13 - 47:18
    is a Wikidata label campaign/competition
  • 47:18 - 47:20
    that has been run a couple of times
  • 47:20 - 47:21
    over the years.
  • 47:21 - 47:24
    This is a competition to take a list
  • 47:24 - 47:29
    of a fixed vocabulary list about food
  • 47:29 - 47:34
    and to self-assigned points
    for translating labels, descriptions,
  • 47:34 - 47:39
    audio files, photographs
    about those food items.
  • 47:39 - 47:44
    Both of these works were coordinated
    out of Wikimedia Sweden,
  • 47:44 - 47:46
    both of these were related
    to Swedish events.
  • 47:46 - 47:49
    One was a food festival,
  • 47:49 - 47:54
    where the eventual translations got placed
    as labels at the food festival
  • 47:54 - 47:55
    around the park.
  • 47:55 - 48:00
    And again, more recently,
    Wikimania in Stockholm,
  • 48:00 - 48:02
    just a couple of months ago.
  • 48:02 - 48:06
    The jury found this project
    particularly worthwhile,
  • 48:06 - 48:08
    worthy of noting for the Language category
  • 48:08 - 48:15
    because of its combination
    in real life and online work
  • 48:15 - 48:19
    to bring Wikidata out
    into the restaurant app
  • 48:19 - 48:24
    into the park and the field
    and to connect the enjoyableness
  • 48:24 - 48:28
    of food editing and fun
    and put them into one package.
  • 48:29 - 48:33
    Many projects and competitions
    and events happened
  • 48:33 - 48:35
    entirely behind the computer.
  • 48:35 - 48:40
    This as a language campaign
    is notable for that connectivity
  • 48:40 - 48:43
    to being out and sharing food together.
  • 48:43 - 48:46
    There's nothing more international
    and multilingual
  • 48:46 - 48:49
    than the sharing of food
    and sharing of food stories
  • 48:49 - 48:51
    and culture around food.
  • 48:52 - 48:55
    Multilingualism,
    obviously for the language prize,
  • 48:55 - 48:59
    was the other criteria
    that the jury noted in particular,
  • 49:00 - 49:02
    highlighting how Wikidata
  • 49:02 - 49:06
    is our multilingual project
    in such a fundamental way
  • 49:06 - 49:11
    by using core vocabulary
    relevant to so many cultures
  • 49:11 - 49:16
    about such important topics
    that can then be taken forward and used.
  • 49:16 - 49:21
    Replicability was the third criteria
    that was important for the jury.
  • 49:21 - 49:25
    The fact that this can be created quickly,
  • 49:25 - 49:30
    that a community can build around
    this competition quickly.
  • 49:30 - 49:33
    It can be run easily, cheaply,
  • 49:33 - 49:37
    minimal infrastructure
    to create a useful outcome
  • 49:37 - 49:39
    beyond possibly the scope
    that you were originally hoping.
  • 49:39 - 49:44
    So the ease of use and the ease
    of reuse by different people
  • 49:44 - 49:48
    for different activities outside food
    and outside Sweden, if you want,
  • 49:49 - 49:50
    was notable.
  • 49:50 - 49:55
    This is the list from
    Wikimania Stockholm recently,
  • 49:55 - 49:59
    and many people in this audience
    were participants in that,
  • 49:59 - 50:02
    sharing images, sharing their own words
  • 50:02 - 50:04
    and the translations of those words
    in their home language.
  • 50:04 - 50:09
    So, for that, the jury has awarded
    the Languages prize.
  • 50:11 - 50:13
    And there we go.

  • 51:14 - 51:16
    (audience) Mmm.
  • 51:16 - 51:17
    And we have the winner here.
  • 51:17 - 51:19
    (laughter)
  • 51:19 - 51:21
    ♪ (dramatic piano music) ♪
  • 51:23 - 51:25
    And the winner is...
  • 51:25 - 51:27
    - (man) ISA!
    - ISA!
  • 51:27 - 51:29
    (cheers and applause)
  • 51:37 - 51:39
    With the most arty image, we hope.
  • 51:40 - 51:45
    So, yeah, I hope you can still read it
    but it's ISA, congratulations.
  • 51:45 - 51:47
    Are you in the room? Anyone?
  • 51:47 - 51:49
    - Over there.
    - Yoo-hoo!
  • 51:49 - 51:51
    (applause)
  • 51:51 - 51:53
    Congratulations!
  • 51:53 - 51:55
    Okay. It's yours.
  • 51:56 - 52:00
    So, ISA for the Multimedia award,
    on a bridge girder.
  • 52:04 - 52:06
    Has anyone in the audience
    used or been involved
  • 52:06 - 52:08
    in one of the ISA campaigns?
  • 52:10 - 52:12
    Half the audience here?
  • 52:12 - 52:16
    For a relatively new project,
    that's really quite impressive.
  • 52:16 - 52:21
    This is one of the first projects
    to utilize Structured Data on Commons,
  • 52:21 - 52:24
    as a third-party, built on top
    of Structured Data on Commons.
  • 52:24 - 52:26
    which itself is quite new,
  • 52:26 - 52:30
    so the ability to then produce new games
  • 52:30 - 52:34
    on top of it is fantastic.
  • 52:34 - 52:39
    ISA is a multilingual mobile-oriented,
  • 52:39 - 52:45
    also desktop project tool game
    to add structured data to Commons,
  • 52:45 - 52:49
    quickly, easily and fun
    in a campaign environment.
  • 52:50 - 52:54
    The jury found this particularly cool.
  • 52:54 - 52:56
    This is a demonstration
    of how to go about it.
  • 52:56 - 53:00
    So you choose a campaign
    from the homepage.
  • 53:01 - 53:04
    You can see there the highlights
    of who is the most active user,
  • 53:04 - 53:07
    or you can see potentially
    different countries
  • 53:07 - 53:09
    or different categories
    within that competition.
  • 53:09 - 53:11
    So you can select your category.
  • 53:12 - 53:18
    This is for public arts
    in Wikilabs Africa.
  • 53:19 - 53:23
    It gives you an image,
    you add it to Depicts, statement.
  • 53:23 - 53:27
    You can declare it to be prominent
    within the field, within the image itself,
  • 53:27 - 53:30
    add the other ones that
    might not be quite so prominent,
  • 53:32 - 53:33
    and Save.
  • 53:36 - 53:39
    And that takes you directly across to...
  • 53:42 - 53:44
    takes those Depicts statements
    and put them immediately in Commons
  • 53:44 - 53:48
    right there on the structured data tab.
  • 53:48 - 53:50
    Mark this as Prominent, if you want.
  • 53:50 - 53:52
    So, really easy interface,
  • 53:52 - 53:55
    really fun way
    to take a particular section
  • 53:55 - 53:57
    of your campaign.
  • 53:57 - 54:01
    The collaboration
    between different communities
  • 54:01 - 54:03
    or different parts of the
    Wikidata community
  • 54:03 - 54:04
    was important for the jury.
  • 54:04 - 54:10
    So, Histropedia, Wiki in Africa,
    and the Structured Data on Commons teams
  • 54:10 - 54:12
    worked together to help support this
  • 54:12 - 54:13
    to demonstrate
  • 54:13 - 54:19
    that mobile-friendly
    campaign/competition programs
  • 54:19 - 54:23
    could be built and could be fun
    on Structured Data on Commons
  • 54:23 - 54:24
    and that it's scalable,
  • 54:24 - 54:28
    that you can use this, not just for that
    one activity for Wikilabs Africa,
  • 54:28 - 54:31
    but as you can see in the original,
    on the front page,
  • 54:31 - 54:34
    there's lots of campaigns already
  • 54:34 - 54:38
    and you can just add your own
    for your community's project
  • 54:38 - 54:41
    and run a competition
    straight away if you want.
  • 54:41 - 54:47
    And for that, the jury decided
    to award the Multimedia award to ISA.
  • 54:48 - 54:50
    (applause)
  • 55:00 - 55:03
    ♪ (piano music similar
    to Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley) ♪
  • 55:34 - 55:36
    (applause)
  • 55:40 - 55:44
    As said in the beginning,
    there are way more cool projects out there
  • 55:44 - 55:47
    that we could award of the Committee,
  • 55:47 - 55:51
    and also in summer
    when the Coolest Tool Award was over,
  • 55:51 - 55:53
    several people feedbacked.
  • 55:53 - 55:54
    That was actually great,
  • 55:54 - 55:57
    but it would also be great to have
    an Honorable Mention section.
  • 55:58 - 56:01
    And as this award is the next award,
  • 56:01 - 56:04
    we decided to have
    an Honorable Mention section
  • 56:04 - 56:07
    also because we felt less bad,
  • 56:07 - 56:10
    and it made us feel better
  • 56:10 - 56:14
    because we could actually
    secretly award more projects
  • 56:14 - 56:18
    when we allowed ourselves to award.
  • 56:20 - 56:25
    Yeah... and let's have a look
    into those projects.
  • 56:25 - 56:28
    I think you need a second microphone?
  • 56:29 - 56:32
    Is there a second microphone
    somewhere in the room?
  • 56:33 - 56:36
    Okay, wait. There's someone
    with another one.
  • 56:36 - 56:37
    Thank you.
  • 56:37 - 56:40
    - Okay, I think that makes it easier.
    - Testing, testing.
  • 56:40 - 56:42
    Test, test, test.
  • 56:42 - 56:47
    So, in an Honorable Mentions category--
    of which there is one category--
  • 56:49 - 56:50
    DataDrainer.
  • 56:50 - 56:53
    This allows you to delete content
    in clean-up activities.
  • 56:54 - 56:58
    (Birgit) Histropedia. Everyone knows it.
  • 56:58 - 57:02
    You can explore history across time,
    subjects and events.
  • 57:02 - 57:03
    (Liam) And Mbabel tool.
  • 57:03 - 57:06
    This lets you generate narrative stubs
    based on Wikidata
  • 57:06 - 57:07
    quickly, easily, faster.
  • 57:09 - 57:12
    (Birgit) Petscan, also known
    as the "Swiss knife"
  • 57:12 - 57:14
    among Wikimedia's query tools.
  • 57:15 - 57:18
    (Liam) They're quite indefinable.
    It actually does all the things.
  • 57:18 - 57:22
    Pywikibot, a library of scripts
    that is used across so many tools
  • 57:22 - 57:26
    and so many projects
    to help do mass editing activities.
  • 57:26 - 57:30
    (Birgit) Quickstatements, that already won
    the Coolest Tool award
  • 57:30 - 57:33
    in summer, 2019.
  • 57:34 - 57:35
    - That's it.
    - Congratulations.
  • 57:35 - 57:38
    - Congratulations.
    - If you're in the room, raise your hand--
  • 57:38 - 57:39
    (applause)
  • 57:46 - 57:51
    We don't have a building
    on which to project all of those names
  • 57:51 - 57:52
    at the same time.
  • 57:52 - 57:54
    But all buildings belong
  • 57:54 - 57:57
    to the Honorable Mention projects, right?
  • 57:57 - 57:59
    - All of the buildings that belong to you.
    - All of the buildings...
  • 57:59 - 58:01
    - Yes.
    - Yeah, good.
  • 58:01 - 58:02
    (Birgit laughs)
  • 58:03 - 58:06
    (Birgit) Okay, we are at
    the very end of the awards...
  • 58:08 - 58:11
    (Pianist) Can I make this a longer one
    or do you still have something to say?
  • 58:11 - 58:12
    (laughter)
  • 58:12 - 58:16
    (Birgit) I think I want to say thank you
    and I will show people the credits
  • 58:16 - 58:19
    and then there is a slide
    with all the images on it.
  • 58:19 - 58:21
    So you can make a longer run, I think.
  • 58:22 - 58:25
    ♪ (Scott Joplin, "Stoptime Rag") ♪
  • 61:37 - 61:40
    (cheers and applause)
  • 61:55 - 61:57
    (Liam) And that's all there is
    for the awards.
  • 61:57 - 61:59
    Thank you for attending.
