Hi , step by step advances in WikiObject project proposal:

   - Added new examples for better scope understanding:
   - Components of a 3D Printer (Prusa I3 Hephestos)
      - Arduino/Genuino Uno Rev 3 Datasheet
      - List of arduino official boards
      Wikidata Query Service)

      - Added list of useful wikidata properties

   - Initial conversations with FreeCAD
   <http://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=17919&p=142383#p142383> to
   link their repositories <https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD-library> to
   wikidata items though "open source repository" property like here

criticism, doubts, ideas, suggestions, etc.. are very welcome

> Hi, how about a wikipedia about objects?
> Instead of generic articles of , for example, "Ballpoint pen" or  "Bic
> cristal" it would be "Ballpoint pen Bic cristal 2014"
> Doing these for millions of objects would allow people to have an open,
> free, universal and central place to refer specific objects.
> *Some possible applications:*
>    - Creating neutral and standard lists:
>    Nowadays if anyone create, for example, a tutorial for building
>    something (DIY projects, receipts, ...) they have to link all items to a
>    comercial or no-neutral web which could change its url in the future or
>    redirect it to adds or whatever.
>    Lists could be created in external webpages linking wikimedia objects
>    webpage or/and could be created as category pages in Wikipedia. For
>    example, currently, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Car_of_the_Year
>    article lists cars which won COTY award but not links to the specific car
>    (AUDI A3 Hatchback 2012 - Present) but generic serie (Audi A3).
>    The good thing at this point it's that to start creating object
>    lists only item name is necessary, no infoboxes or description needed.
>    - Universal repository for inventories:
>    Lot of business fill their inventories again and again with same data
>    ("cardboard box 50x30x15", "step by step nema motor 17", ... ) they should
>    be able to import  this data from a open website with their corresponding
>    info like   GTIN , SKU , Barcode... and more in the future  weight, size,
>    ...
> - Encourage Recycling and Reutilitation:
>    Imagine if we use wikidata properties  (
>    https://m.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:List_of_properties/Generic) like
>    "has part" and "part of" , people will find other uses for objects, or
>    discover were to find
>    - Social activism and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
>    Companies have info and metrics about their costumers (habits,
>    location, ...) why not costumers have info about companies products, who
>    manufacture what?, what products have a good carbon footprint
>    <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_footprint>?, what products have
>    been retired from some problem?, what are Fair Trade?. This also can moved
>    companies do better.
> *Very rough roadmap*:
>    1. At the very begining, using wikidata infrestructure, objects would
>    only have common info like "name", " image", "related  links"
>    (datasheets?), GTIN.
>    First use cases could be doing lists or grouping objects by categories.
>    2. Step by step new fields could be added like "manufacturer" ,
>    "tags", ...
>    3. A separated website could be created. wikiobject.org isn't
>    availiabe so url could be something like objects.wikpedia.org
>    4. In a long-term in order to explote all the possibilities of this
>    project more complex fields and relations would have to be managed, like
>     for example "fridges with energy class A+++ and width less than 80 cm",
>    which could be easy if all always were similar but nothing further from
>    reality
>    A friend of mine and me tried to build a demo version in an home-made
>    apache cassandra cluster four years ago, but we don't have enough resources
>    and knowledge for that.
> *Funding*
> In my humble opinion, problem with wikipedia funding It's that most part
> of its users don't see culture as a need (sorry for that, I am a sporadic
> donor). In Wikiobject case I think it could rather be different.
> If part of companies business lies on this project, companies will be very
> inclined to donate to improve performace, usability, etc.. maybe similar to
> what happens in Linux.
> Where came this need from? Data needed for some software to run, product
> vissibility, costumer requests, etc ... , no advertisement needed, It could
> be a need and standart.
> I trully believe that world need something like this, and the correct
> people to do it, to warranty openness and independence, are you.
> thanks for your time and attention,
