Title: Wikidata beliefs and principles

Author: Lydia Pintscher

Description: I'll teach you about some of the underlying beliefs and principles that guide everything around Wikidata. I'll dig into questions like:

  • Why is Wikidata multilingual?
  • Why do we not want to model the truth?
  • What is knowledge diversity?
  • How do I believe we can give more people more access to more knowledge with Wikidata?

After that we'll have time for all of your questions - from basic to advanced.

Purpose: Get you to better understand how Wikidata works and why.

Targeted participants: People interested in getting started with Wikidata editing and like a bit of understanding of the ideas behind the project first.

Preparatory readings or materials: none
