Dear Markus, Yury, Semantic MediaWikians, and Wikitechians,
Thanks for your feedback about Semantic mediawiki and map data
coordinate-wise, in terms of colors:
"SMW does not have a special datatype for representing colours. You
can encode wavelengths as numbers. Sound data is not supported, nor is
any such support planned right now." (Markus K.)
In thinking through broadly, and planning for, for example, how both
modeling a virtual classroom (e.g. a chemistry classroom, in something
like an interactive, movie-realistic OpenSim or WoW) as well as a
virtual universe might work, coordinate-wise for color and sound,
vis-a-vis World University and School, as well as with Wikidata and
Wikibase, I'm curious about a number of coordinate-related questions,
particularly cross-language-wise, in Semantic Mediawiki's "annotating
semantic data within wiki pages, thus turning a wiki that incorporates
the extension into a semantic wiki" (from Wikipedia) for the future.
For example, will Google Translate in Android, for example, be able to
articulate code-wise with 1) Semantic Mediawiki, and 2) Wikidata and
Wikibase, say, ten years in the future, for color as well as sound
translation, for an universal translator
example, when viewing Monet's sunrise -
- in the Sunhala language (from Sri Lanka) and asking questions of the
painting, or adding a Semanticwiki annotation (say, between the
Sinhala language and the Hungarian language, in text or voice), or,
further, even listening to the sounds of, while watching its colors
change, of the sun (presuming this generates sound) 92 million miles
away, and annotating this, at some point in the future. Even though
Semantic Mediawiki has no plans to support sound, if Wikidata and
Wikibase have plans to support sound files (or don't), say, to wiki
edit about the colors of the sun, or Monet's painting, via
coordinates, is there a way for World University and School, as we
grow (here's WUaS's Computational Linguistics' wiki subject, with a
number of MIT OCW courses to begin, for example), to build on Semantic
Mediawiki, Wikidata and Wikibase, but particularly Wikidata, for
sound? What URL might point me to Semantic Mediawiki, Wikidata and
Wikibase's plans, but particularly Wikidata's, for mapping coordinate
and sound development?
Coding for sound support seems possibly very valuable in the
development of Semantic Mediawiki, Wikidata and Wikibase, for the
future, in addition to developing sophisticated coordinates for, for
example, mapping the sun as the internet itself develops, but the
Semantic Mediawiki and Wikidata projects are immense as they are, so
I'm glad you're focusing them so knowledgeably and skillfully.
Thanks and cheers,
