Wiki[mp]edia data sources & the MediaWiki API

A brief presentation I gave for Melhack last week:

Wiki[mp]edia data sources & the MediaWiki API
View more documents from Brianna Laugher.

I wrote a bit on my techiturn blog about what I worked on in my 24 hour hack.

There is a huge amount of rich data in Wikipedia and other MediaWiki collections, naturally, but as there is no API evangelist you have to do a bit of digging to figure this out. Regular readers may recall that I am quite a fan of the API and what it means for reusers.

I hope you have given Semantic Mediawiki a good look. It is great on its own but depending on the consistency of templates used on wp, can overnight turn it into a semantic db.
