- New Creation
At Wikimania I presented a talk on the WikiMiniAtlas map widget.
- Met the new Maps team Yuri Astrakahn and Max Semenik and discussed features from WikiMiniAtlas to be ported over to a production maps widget.
- Talked with Wikimedia Deutschland engineers about my category traversal tool that is online on commons to potentially join forces with the cast graph team.
- Talked to Brion Viber about his dormant project for embedding user scripts on article pages. I would love to start a project to bring interactive content to Wikipedia pages (educational applets).
- Talked to Aaron Halfaker about making the AI article quality metrics available in bulk to use for taking articles down on a world map (show high quality articles first).
- Attended a Breaking Commons roundtable which gave me plenty of new ideas for commons gadgets (for example a simple thumbs up/down image rating tool).
- Had a chance to directly interact with a Wikimedia Labs engineer (Coren) face to face to get my WikiMiniAtlas instance recovered after the NFS failure took it out.
