Re: [Wikimedia-l] What's making you happy this week? (Week of 4 February 2018)

Hoi,
Carla Hayden received an award [1] and as I do so often I added it to
Wikidata. I could not find info on the award and was only able to add two
award winners. A friend found more information and added several more
winners. It is an award relating to libraries and librarians, I am
confident more information will become known.
Thanks,
  GerardM

I think it is good to let them going for the time being.

I like them and on the whole are informative.  It makes a
change to read positive messages which have content, as most other
positive messages tend to be pile on congratulations-spam, which can
be pretty irritating if they make your email ping ten times in the
same day. 

What's making me happy this week is finding my upload project stopped
by getting IP blocked by the Library of Congress, but then discovering
their rather good improvements to making all records publicly
available in JSON format, in turn making the upload project give
better results on Commons.[1]

They are harmless and occasionally interesting. Greatly preferable to a lot of 
the other messages. Cheers, Peter

I liked the Metrics and Activities Meeting in Berlin 
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFzqTxTfq2Y> that was hosted by Wikimedia 
Deutschland. The change in focus to affiliates was interesting. Perhaps 
affiliates would like to hold meetings like this in parallel to the WMF 
meetings in the future.

I also liked this post in the WMF Blog
<https://blog.wikimedia.org/2018/01/29/glam-multimedia-metadata-commons/>
about structured data on Commons.

This overview
<https://blog.wikimedia.org/2018/01/30/community-digest-wikipedia-day-17/>
of Wikipedia birthday celebrations was fun to read. There were reports from 
Armenia, Poland, Israel, India, Tunisia, Macedonia, Egypt, Bangladesh, Ghana, 
Algeria, Bulgaria, and the United States.

I discovered we got an article on a ridiculously obscure media format
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HiPac ) due to a techmoan episode:

Now we just need a photo of the thing.
