==Wikidata Session by Katie Filbert ==
Infoboxes and Wikidata
One of the core of DH is collabration. I think humanities should have a sense of what programing can do but not really put himself / herself as a programmer.
Since even those you can write a program, it is much more then that in computation problem to make the computation really work in real, complicated problem.
==Making Wiki Competitions Attractive to the Public==
Start editathons with a workshop for beginners
Ask new users to sign up – we need stats, we need to show how many new users are involved and what they do (at the event and afterwards)
This tool is good for tracking users: http://davidohlin.com/editcount/
Competitons are tools to get more wiki-volunteers and to raise public awareness re. open data: tell your audience what else you are doing and how they can support it.
===Star Trek tricorder session===
Learning classification system as you learn about the objects
using audio as a way of engaging with both the objects and information at the same time
zoonivese project with a guided taxonomy system
dgital information to enhance engagement to improve understanding, engagement and learning
processing what you’re looking at
guided appreciation, starting points rather than restricting people’s understanding
The Problem of the Yellow Milkmaid – A Business Model Perspective on Open Metadata
annotation and image maps on wikimedia commons
easter eggs 😉
evaluation rather than evangelsim
Open Access and the Open Humanities Library (Bronte 1415). https://www.openlibhums.org/
Humanities face different challenges from the science, in terms of funding and research cycles, tenure
Cost of academic publishing (for user) have risen far beyond inflation (percentage?)
What Open Access is not:
*a way to bypassing peer review
Green does not fix extant problems, Gold requires new economic model
*advertising (conflict of interest?)
* pay forprint copies
* Article processing charge (unviable in humanities)
Wikipedia is a socialist project o_O
People like their niche areas, we should facilitate curation withhin the MegaJournal
Print on demand functionality could solve funding problems ONCE start up funds have been acquired
Curation has some difficulties in terms of typsetting (similarly liscenced material) and missing material (paywalll content left out of reader?)
Citation with the system would be to the mega journal (singke DoI) rather than individual curations
peer review conveys value – open access publishing still requires peer review.
Including expected standards of referencing and format for disciplines
Ability to update and evolve articles exciting but might put off a certain viewpoint (journal articles are static objects to be referenced)
Would like to join?
“May all your problems be technical” – the social ones are far harder to solve.
How to publish is technical, but establishing authority is social. Traditionally this has been peer review, publications, which institution do you work for. We need to transition towards a crowdsourced model. But somehow signpost the quacks Quickly and effectively, Lest we all end up with measles or fall off the ends of the earth
Open hardware movement – could they provide the answer?
‘What is scholarship is a key question that at some point we will have to address’
Digital is the great democratiser – Andy M
‘The crowd are the people we need to persuade’
The open hardware movement as a model
value is added by curation
journal publishers v. monograph publishers – Martin E believes the latter add more values.
‘Open Access from the Publisher’s Perspective’ – ‘has anyone actually read this?’ ‘is that the one that costs £40?’ High prices for individual publications deter libraries from dropping their subscription bundles.
Saylor foundation – open access textbooks.

==Artists & Free Licences==
‘Society wants everything in packages but we’re not interested in how it’s got there’
95% of people still don’t know about of wikimedia and its uses
Conflict of interest – monetising content; fear that content is without value
Greater issue with modern art where the artist is alive or recently deceased e.g. Jeff Koons – v few images on his wiki article
97% artists don’t make money from sales of images & don’t know the possibilities of releasing images under creative commons: an Education & Information issue
