Excited to head to for this week. Hit me up if you are around! (P.S.: I have 💎 stickers!)


Very Proud to organize a thematic track this year about Open Research Tools & Technologies!

We welcome talks about created and used in academic research, investigative journalism, NGOs fieldwork, etc.

Conf at Brussels on 2020/02/01.
Proposal deadline 2019/12/01


We are pleased to announce that the Getty Vocabularies OpenRefine Reconciliation Service is now available. Read about it here: . Wrangle your data and link to AAT, TGN, and ULAN.

#ItsAccessibleBut the only way to buy the wheelchair-space tickets is to actually go in the train station, no Internet possibility

We wrote up two examples for using additional properties in our #GND reconciliation service for #OpenRefine to improve reconciliation results

We also significantly improved the matching in the #OpenRefine reconciliation endpoint for #GND. So don't be surprised that now much more candidates will be automatically matched.

Vous l'attendiez, #CyclOSM, la carte cycliste libre basée sur les données #OpenStreetMap, est maintenant disponible dans le monde entier avec mises à jour minutaires !

Et tout ça est possible grâce au soutien de @osm_fr !

Ce matin on était à @PasSageEnSeine ! On a parlé de s’unir, de se syndiquer, de monter des coopératives ; plein de bonnes discussions.

"The project has also been a great opportunity to test what OpenRefine, Wikidata’s Query Service and ArcGIS Online are capable of by pushing them to their limits. The results have been very impressive with OpenRefine being a great software for uploading edits to Wikidata"

We have improved our GND reconciliation service for OpenRefine by implementing the OpenRefine suggest API for searching types, properties, and entities

I have been doing a bit of mapping there and I like the feeling of digital rambling it gives… it's a fun way to travel :)

Happy to be doing an OpenRefine workshop at SWIB (Semantic Web in Libraries) in November. Including reconciliation with Wikidata and GND, publishing data on Wikidata and mapping & exporting data as RDF. Very excited!

In so many cases the maintainer has moved on and is no longer interested. We really need mechanisms to make project ownership more fluid. GitHub's notion of fork does not solve the problem, although it is a good first step: ownership of the package on PyPI / npm / other platforms is the key.

How wonderful is it when you make a PR to an upstream library and it gets reviewed, merged and released in a timely manner? With constructive comments and improvements from the maintainer? It is so rare!
