Hay creates digital things. He combines in-depth technical knowledge with a pragmatic approach and a creative angle. Designing, developing, tinkering and hacking on the thin line between art, data, technology and narrative.
Hay has been a Wikimedian since 2005 and created numerous tools, was the first Dutch Wikipedian-in-Residence, served on the Wikimedia Netherlands board and contributed to many Wikimedia projects,with text, images and data.
Depictor is a new tool for quickly adding structured data statements to images on Wikimedia Commons using a game-like interface. The goal of the tool is to be able to do this on mobile devices as well, so that you can quickly add statements even when you're on a train or waiting at the dentist. Even though the tool has a basic mode there are lots of other powerful options that we'll explore in this session.
