I am Andrew Gray, a librarian from the UK. I've been working with the Wikimedia projects since 2005, including several years handling public enquiries on the OTRS service. In 2012-13 I was the Wikipedian in Residence at the British Library in London. In the unlikely event you want to listen to me rather than read this, I made two short podcasts for AHRC, the project funder: about the Wikipedian in Residence program and about how to get involved with Wikipedia.
On Wikidata, my main project is on trying to structure data on British members of parliament; full details on this are at Wikidata:WikiProject British Politicians. I have also done work on:
- Biographical identifiers, and in particular the concept of trying to use Wikidata as a central "spine" for these - this is one of the most promising avenues for future work
- Data modelling for places in Antarctica, a region not well covered by our existing models
At some point in the future I am hoping to find time to work on modelling legislation.
