#Wikidata - more #data provides more #information


Working on Wikidata is addictive. Particularly when you see the information improve before your eyes. I mentioned to a friend how Sukarno looks in the "Reasonator". It was not bad. It could however be improved upon.
  • all the persons now have gender information
  • the signature was added
  • information was added for several of his wives
  • information was added about husbands and children of his children
  • qualifiers were added about his presidency of Indonesia
There is a place for adding the same statements in an automated fashion. There is also a place for improving the quality of information. It is particularly important for those items that are likely to be seen by many people.
Thanks,
