… it is possible to have fun with “Spoken Wikipedia”?


Some Wikipedias have a spoken wikipedia project. That is an audio recording of someone who reads the article. Of that is a useful activity we will keep in the middle. But it is possible to have some fun with it by using different voices and intonation. A great example of fun with a spoken article is the Dutch language version of “Bert en Ernie” from Sesame Street.

… we have a project in our family called “Wikispecies”?

Wikispecies is a Wikimedia project intended to be a directory of species. There are currently about a dozen active editors and over 60,000 listings. It is similar to Commons in that it is multilingual. They are working on the fine line between being a framework of species with links to information in all of the various Wikipedias, and containing that information there. Searching is always challenging when working in multiple languages. Wikispecies hopes to utilize wikidata when it becomes available to serve up the data. Check it out at http://species.wikimedia.org/ .
