I'm the preservation director at Rhizome.
Rhizome was the first institution that deployed a mission-critical Wikibase.
After the ArtBase re-launch earlier this year, this lightning talk presents an update on the latest achievements and challenges of running your own federated Wikibase.
The Wikibase Stakeholder Group (WBSG) commissions production and maintenance of open source extensions to Wikibase, and documentation for institutions that want to operate and maintain a fully-fledged instance of Wikibase.
Representative members of the WBSG will hold an open forum session.
This session will introduce the group to the broader Wikibase and Wikidata community by presenting the group’s members, its governance structure, and goals. In addition, we will hold an open discussion over the group’s roadmap for technical developments.
Attendees of the session will have a chance to learn more about the workings of the group, and enquire about membership if interested.
Following this introduction, existing members will have a chance to discuss development projects planned by the Group and get feedback from the broader Wikidata and Wikibase community. The interactive part of the session will involve publicly-shared notetaking and brainstorming tools which will be open to all attendees to view and comment on.
