A great article discussing the role of the Wikipedian in residence and how QRpedia codes have taken off there.
Beautiful video about the work Derby Museum has been doing with Wikipedia & QRpedia.
In 2011 Wikipedians wrote and translated 1200 new articles to allow the museums objects to read in over a dozen languages using QRpedia codes.
The “Wiki Loves Monuments” project in Russia has been featured on Russian TV. Check out the QRpedia codes!
There is some confusion about QRpedia’s name.
The answer is very simple. The “pedia” isn’t from “Encyclopedia”. It isn’t from “Wikipedia”. It’s an acronym.
- P – Potentially
- E – Every
- D – Device
- I - Interlanguage
- A – Access
The “QR”, of course, standing for “Quick Response”.
I hope that clears up the matter
