OSR137 WikiCite 2018 – Interview with Pete and Lane [EN]

As in the last 2 years, Konrad visited the WikiCite event again and took the opportunity to do a couple of interviews with participants.

“WikiCite 2018 is a 3-day conference, summit, and hack day dedicated to the vision of creating an open repository of bibliographic data to support the citation and fact-checking needs of Wikimedia projects, and possibly, to serve as an open infrastructure for research, education, and information quality across the web.”

This interview is with Pete Forsyth and Lane Rasberry about the project Newspapers on Wikipedia, dealing with how the information in newspapers can be found, harvested, used and properly cited in Wikipedia. Enjoy!

OSR134 WikiCite 2018 – Enjoy the Community [EN]

As in the last 2 years, Konrad visited the WikiCite event again and took the opportunity to do a couple of interviews with participants.

“WikiCite 2018 is a 3-day conference, summit, and hack day dedicated to the vision of creating an open repository of bibliographic data to support the citation and fact-checking needs of Wikimedia projects, and possibly, to serve as an open infrastructure for research, education, and information quality across the web.”

WikiCite draws a quite a diverse crowd, so this episodes gives a number of voices from the “event floor”. After a short introduction to the idea behind the event you’ll be introduced to quite a number of participants sharing their background and motivation to take part in WikiCite 2018. And if you ever wandered what goes on in a hackathon, you’ll hear about it too as Konrad interviewed some of the participants from the hackathon at day 3. Enjoy!

OSR114 Software Citation and Recognition #oscibar [EN]

OSR051 WikiCite 2016 Interview with Lydia Pintscher and Dario Taraborelli [EN]

Konrad visited this year’s WikiCite event, “…an event focused on designing data models and technology to improve the coverage, quality, standards-compliance and machine-readability of citations and source metadata in Wikipedia, Wikidata and other Wikimedia projects.” He took the ad-hoc opportunity to sit down with two members from the organizing committee, Lydia Pintscher and Dario Taraborelli, and chat with them about the concepts of WikiCite and WikiData in general as well as the WikiCite event in particular. Unfortunately the recording quality is not optimal since we did not have the proper equipment available. Still, it was an opportunity that couldn’t be missed. So, hopefully it isn’t too bad and we hope that you can still enjoy the conversation!
