Hi Paris Writers' News/PWN, Markus, and Wikidatans,
Based on your example (http://tinyurl.com/yahwql2n), Markus, I'm seeking to learn how to do a similar query for all languages.
In Wikidata I found a Q item # for "language" - Q34770 (https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q34770) - and plugged this into your query, replaced the word "countries" with "languages," etc. but didn't get a result, where your query yields 209 countries, Markus.
In a parallel way, how would one compute them from the names of the articles in Wikipedia?
(English) DBpedia URIs are basically just (English) Wikipedia URIs with the first part exchanged. So one can compute them from the names of the articles. Example: a query for DBpedia URIs for all countries:
?item wdt:P31 wd:Q6256 . # for the example: get IDs for all countries
?sitelink schema:about ?item ;
schema:isPartOf <https://en.wikipedia.org/> .
Of course, depending on your use case, you can do the same offline (without requiring SPARQL to rewrite the id strings for you).
In theory, one could use federation to pull in data from the DBpedia endpoint, but in practice I could not find an interesting query that completes within the timeout (but I did not try for very long to debug this).
Thanks for connecting on Twitter just now (@scottmacleod).
I'm heading to Ai Weiwei's film "Human Flow" at Stanford tomorrow afternoon,, and have already RSVPed.
Any interest in seeing this - https://events.stanford.edu/

Film Screening & Livestream Q&A: Human Flow, A Film by Ai Weiwei
In some ways, this film was quite Taoist ... and quite a change in representation of refugees from the last century ... there aren't many horrors portrayed in this film, I'm glad to say.
The film begins along a shore/beach on Lesvos, Greece, not far from Turkey, - and on a part of Lesvos which is quite close to Angela & Victor's Yoga Hall in Eftalou, which I've visited a number of times. Nice to see this familiar stretch of the road and beach in Eftalou.
Ai Weiwei's new film "Human Flow" about the worldwide refugee crisis:
Thanks for posting this, Kiernan! ...

I asked in Slide.com in the live Q&A with Ai Weiwei himself in Chicago (since this was live streamed to many universities in the US):
How could US citizen's help refugees with online education in all ~200 countries? (and in the refugees' main languages)?
