Putting up a thinglink generator and Wikiproducts

In July Eric Wahlforss, Adam Wern, Jyri and I had a small workshop in Stockholm on databases and unique identifiers.

As a result, we ended up building a website, where anyone can generate unique identifiers for free. We decided to call this code – not a number or not even a code but instead – a link between things, a thinglink.

As an excercise for creating an open database we also put up a Mediawiki site called wikiproducts.org, where people can save information of products. Later, I realized that the Mediawiki interface is a bit too difficult to use for small producers like artists, designers, and crafters. So a workable interface is still an open question.
