Wikidata is 9, and Wikibase the software that powers it is also thus about 9! Twitter has been around for the entire Wikibase lifespan. So let’s take a look back through time at some of the most liked Wikibase tweets (according to Twitter free search) since creation.

Today is also my 28th anniversary working for @SILibraries. Though the rare book cataloging is on hold till we’re back in the office, I’ve been keeping busy with Wikidata & Wikibase work, @BioDivLibrary record clean-up, & other fun metadata-y stuff. 🎉

2017 was the year that the Wikibase docker images first appeared! The release strategy recently got an overhaul and the code behind the docker images now lives in a new repository.

Yes! A full stack from Wikibase to WDQS in Docker, with federated queries, turned on. #wikidatacon

Just as an architect learns by visiting famous historical buildings, I think software producers should do the same. Some of the most important software for PC that I pick are visicalc, dbase, pfs series, Adventure, Wizardry1, Ultima1, WikiBase, hypercard, etc.

A library for the data model for Wikibase and thus also Wikidata that we have all come to know and love over the years was published back in 2013.
