Dugong: Nelson Graburn has the best understanding of my Harbin ethnographic book of anyone so far, and has read the most of it, I'd say, I finished indexing for the 3rd + time my Harbin book, and it should be available on paper soon at the new Academic Press at World University and School!!!, In addition to beginning to read MIT OCW Anthropology Department books, together with some philosophy, perhaps Kant and Hegel to begin ... How to bring virtual Harbin into some streams of philosophical conversations?


I'd say UC Berkeley Professor Emeritus Nelson Graburn has the best understanding of my Harbin ethnographic book of anyone so far, and has read the most of it too. His writing of its introduction helps focus it especially. {And at some point, I may address this with a complementary alternative interpretation in my 2nd Harbin book.}

And he's also a great academic champion of it, for which I'm very appreciative. Thank you, Nelson!

Here for example are the 2 talks ~

http://www.scottmacleod.com/ActualVirtualHarbinBook.html

~ I've given in the UC Berkeley Anthropology department in recent years - in 2015 (slides) and 2012 (video) - and re ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy as a new methodology.


*

But while Nelson is a great champion of it, I don't think he's visited Harbin, and he hasn't really been able to experience "being there" - or, in a sense been able to do his own participant observation field work as a Professor of Anthropology, which I hope to facilitate remarkably in creating a virtual Harbin / virtual Earth for STEM researchers, something like Google Street View with time slider with OpenSimulator (and for brain research also!). This would be film-realistic, 3D, interactive, group build able, STEM precise, in all 7, 943 languages, and with avatars ... and with virtual Harbin one would view it / visit it / be there from one's bath tub from anywhere in the world.

Hi Nic,

I think of those British naturalists who traveled far in their gardens, understanding evolution at home for example ... maybe lawn mowing is a related form of travel :-) ... hoping to create a film realistic virtual Earth for STEM research in a related vein ... there are cool places to travel already in Stteet View for example :-)

For example, you can visit the Harbin Gatehouse here -

http://tinyurl.com/p62rpcg 


- and 'walk' down the road to Middletown, California, in Google Street View :) ... but you can't go into Harbin (and this mostly imagery is pre Sept 2015 fire)

The Harbin Gate link is accessible too from my book's web page - 


*
I finished indexing for the 3rd + time my Harbin book, and it should be available on paper soon at the new Academic Press at World University and School!!!


*
I think I'm going to begin to read through MIT OCW's Anthropology books and articles ...

http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/anthropology/ ... beginning with Laura Ahearn's book "Invitations to Love: Literacy, Love Letters, and Social Change in Nepal" University of Michigan Press, 2001, which I haven't read yet.


together with some philosophy, perhaps Kant and Hegel to begin ...

How to bring virtual Harbin into some streams of philosophical conversations?

Donald!

Nice to get your email!

Your adventures in Apple land from SF sound enhancing ... When will we be able to do something like wiring your living room for any music ever recorded with augmented reality? How soon until we can visit a great virtual Harbin from your living room (not from your bathtub!) - or Brigflats in Cumbria - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brigflatts_Meeting_House - for Meeting ... and for the spaciousness of summer (or loving bliss)? Heard back positively about a tenure track MIT Media Lab junior faculty position a few weeks ago: "Start date is flexible but would be January 1st 2017 at the earliest. Pattie" where Pattie Maes, a Belgian, has been a professor there since 1996, and Joi Ito its director since 2011 ... thanks to 3 good recommendations, two from engineers. I'd like to settle on January 1, 2017 and first from out here for some years, if at all possible.

Feeling-wise, received your email - a treat - as I just completed my Harbin book index for the 3rd + grind time - relief - so treated & relieved. My manuscript passed the CreateSpace internal review a few weeks ago otherwise, so I think it should be available on paper soon newly, in 8.5x11 format with about 180 photos! A long journey, and about to begin on a 2nd Harbin book journey. WUaS will be, for a second semester, in a UC Berkeley Law "New Business Practicum" course beginning soon, I'm glad to say.

Grateful for F/friendliness, Scott

Hi Nelson, 

Having already passed CreateSpace's internal review, I just submitted my "Naked Harbin Ethnography" manuscript with its Universal ISBN in the Academic Press at World University and School IMPRINT to CreateSpace, and should hear back about this final review within 24 hours - and then my book should be available on paper from my web site - http://www.scottmacleod.com/ActualVirtualHarbinBook.html - and http://amazon.com/author/scottmacleodworlduniversity !

Since I chose the Universal ISBN many months ago to BEGIN the Academic Press at WUaS (planned in all 7,943 languages with machine translation eventually), and CreateSpace/Amazon doesn't allow this Universal ISBN to go through their "Libraries & Academic Institutions" distribution channel, I can apparently create a workaround for this with an ACADEMIC/LIBRARIES' version and get their FREE ISBN which will allow me to distribute my book through their "Libraries & Academic Institutions" channel in this ACADEMIC/LIBRARIES' version - to be seen. (This would mean apparently I would have to change the Universal ISBN in the first print edition to the free CreateSpace ISBN for them to distribute this through their Libraries channel - and libraries wouldn't have the Academic Press WUaS ISBN in their database records). With the Universal ISBN for Academic Press WUaS, I can distribute through 1) Amazon.com, 2) Amazon Europe and 3) CreateSpace eStore and 3 others of their channels. Now to figure out distribution on-the-ground!


 - I'd say you have the best understanding of my Harbin ethnographic book of anyone so far, and have read the most of it too. Your writing of its introduction helps focus my book especially. Thank you!

But as an anthropologist and Professor of Anthropology especially, you haven't been able yet to visit virtual Harbin for a great Harbin experience yet!

And you're also a great academic champion of my book, for which I'm very appreciative. Thank you, Nelson!

Best regards, Scott

Treepie: Pragmatically, with Susan Anders' "Harmony Singing by Ear" on CDs as one example, - how to transform this into a cognitive mentoring application?, Furthermore, how to add data to this hypothetical application, or "datify" this (e.g. Suzuki Method CDs for violin and piano similarly too, & perhaps Sal Khan videos too?, Also, how to "datify" such for "interventions" (& flourishing engagement) and specific language learning-wise too?, Could one or I turn any favorite musician or group into such an application, Pandora or iHeartRadio-wise - and even into a robot for my hypothetical kids to learn to sing harmony?

Here's a blogpost from 2013 exploring Susan Anders' "Singing Harmony by Ear" with coding (and there are others in this blog)

Bali tiger: How to 'marry' two databases together?, E.g. Google Translate with Ethnologue, WUaS with Wikipedia, Similarly, how to combine, for example, Susan Anders' first CD set (3) "Singing Harmony by Ear" with, for example, digital feedback, paralleling the relatively new, speed limit signs that blink your speed back at you


http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2013/04/bali-tiger-how-to-marry-two-databases.html
*

As a followup to your great cognitive assistants' talk this morning, an interesting challenge now hypothetically with developing Susan Anders' CDs "Harmony Singing by Ear" into a cognitive assistant would be for WUaS to add a version of a model-trace tutoring system from Carnegie Learning (https://www.carnegielearning.com/) to Wikidata/Wikibase in its 358 languages, then get copyright permissions, then produce a subsequent model for building this cognitive mentor (adaptable to Suzuki Method and Sal Khan videos, too, for example) and with interventions (feedback-wise) and for specific kinds of flourishing engagement (a WUaS focus) ... and then to develop this as a (developing, versioning) product/  "application" ... and even for WUaS to publish this in our Academic Press (http://worlduniversityandschool.org/AcademicPress.html), and then sell it in our planned online bookstore (http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Bookstore_/_Computer_Store_%28New_%26_Used%29_at_WUaS) in many languages. 

*
Thanks, Jim! Spohrer!

Posted some of these ideas, inspired by your cognitive assistants' idea, to my blog today - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2016/08/treepie-pragmatically-with-susan-anders.html . 

WUaS is forking legally this autumn in a UC Berkeley Law course for the 2nd semester in a row - and concurrently hopefully with University of California incubation of World University and School for accreditation, as we develop the MIT OCW-centric course catalog in Wikidata / Wikibase, first.

And WUaS has a little ways to go still to develop our owm Development Team :) ... Thanks!

Beyond the chips/semiconductors (e.g. http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Chips_-_Semiconductors), just the 3D printers for printing houses, beyond the materials to print are a ginormous market in all countries, for example.

Trillions of dollars to many nation states' economies over many years is my first back of the envelope (or blog title) estimate

Back of the envelope calculation: there are 204 nation states, each with needs for chip / semiconductor processing power for virtual and augmented reality year after year ...

Hi, Jack (Professor Qiu),

Re the following -

Rainy Season: Hong Kong WUaS, China WUaS, CC MIT OCW in Mandarin, WUaS planned in all 7,943 languages, How do you construe the role of "pay for performance" in the context of your analysis of labor vis-a-vis "Digital Methods and Social Development"?, What do/might cross-language and cross-cultural comparison studies show in terms of time-management and digital methods and social development (e.g. theoretically in all 7,097 living languages/identities)?, What would the role of World University and School's universities in each of all nation states' analyses be in improving quality of life and economic prosperity in all countries? (And re questions of "being" too?)

http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2016/08/rainy-season-hong-kong-wuas-china-wuas.html


Thanks, Scott  -  how did it work? Must be quite an unusual Saturday night for you. All comments and feedback will be greatly appreciated, as this is the first time we do such live webcast.
All best ,
Jack

Hi Jack, 

Excellently. Congratulations on having an Intel representative give your first keynote too. I hope your students find their ways into jobs and careers with Intel, a great company to work with, it would seem. Everyone's English was excellent and the mostly Chinese faculty and students I saw are so cosmopolitan!

As an expression of the network society (per Manuel Castells - I noticed the title of your first 2009 book), thanks for the opportunity to participate in Chinese University of Hong Kong's "Digital Methods and Social Development" conference from the SF Bay Area and listen to all of you in Hong Kong (what incredible I.T. technologies!). I heard the first 2 keynotes, and will check out the others, if available, as well.


While there were mentions of Manuel Castells's theorizing of the digital methods and the information age (in your bio, for example), none of the presenters I heard seemed to have read him (as a great social theorist of the internet), so I'd probably explore adding more Castells-informed perspectives, for one, in subsequent CUHK "Digital Methods and Social Development." I attended Castells' "Society and Information Technology" course at UC Berkeley about 15 years ago - and was captivated and riveted but his lectures. I teach a course now on "Information Technology, the Network Society and the Global University" - http://worlduniversityandschool.org/InfoTechNetworkSocGlobalUniv.html. I hope this course comes into conversation virtually with expressions of global information capitalism I heard (Castells is great in these regards) in your conference too.
In a related vein and re digital methods, I'm also very glad my actual / virtual Harbin Hot Springs' ethnographic book was published in April, with an introduction by UC Berkeley Professor Nelson Graburn - http://www.scottmacleod.com/ActualVirtualHarbinBook.html. My book comes into conversation with Tom Boellstorff's "Coming of Age in Second Life: An Anthropologist Explores the Virtual Human" (Princeton 2008). In this book and in subsequent virtual Harbin projects, I hope to build a film realistic virtual Harbin / virtual earth for STEM research, and planned in all 7,097 living languages - something like Google Street View with time slider with OpenSim/SL (and at the neural/cell nano/atomic levels too) This will film realistic, interactive, 3D, group-build-able, all-languages, with avatars earth also become "classrooms" for startup CC MIT OCW-centric World University and School (STEM-wise as well as ethnographically).

On my book's web page, you'll find two talks I've given at UC Berkeley. The slides from the one I gave in November 2015 lay out further a new digital method I'm calling ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy (re Professor Richard Rogers approach to digital methods). The video is from a Berkeley talk I gave in November 2012 re Harbin ethngraphically. I think the building of a film realistic virtual earth/cosmos will further the growth of the web, as well as the chip industry (Intel) significantly.
In what ways did you work with Castells besides being a co-author with him - http://www.com.cuhk.edu.hk/en-GB/people/teaching-staff/qiu-jack-l-c at the University of Southern California for your Ph.D.?

Please keep World University and School in mind re both academic careers for your students - planned in each of all 7,097 languages, each a market ... and in 204 countries' each a major university, the "Harvards of the Web." We'd like to become the Harvard of the internet in all countries' main and official languages offering online free CC MIT OCW-centric, Bachelor-level, Ph.D., Law and M.D. degrees as well as I.B. high school degrees. And WUaS is planning an online academic press in all 7,943 languages - http://worlduniversityandschool.org/AcademicPress.html - as well as a bookstore/computer store, again in ALL languages. 

It's possible you could become head of China World University and School, for example. 

Your conference was excellent. World University and School will hopefully head toward further complementary excellence - as well as networking for careers for our WUaS students too, in all countries' main languages - even as WUaS also grows as an university organization in all 7,943 languages! My compliments to your co-faculty and to all the presenters!

All best, 
Scott

Veratrum: JuryX - Free Harvard Law Class begins Tu Sept 27 asking "What is Citizenship?", Poland WUaS, Friends Association for Higher Education updates for membership - 1) a clear Quaker tradition; 2) reputable accreditation ( or substantial progress towards such accreditation); 3) and a stable, significant student body," some of which WUaS has, and others of which are goals for WUaS.


Dora,

Sounds nice and fun - and it's been a while since you've been home to Guagov (how do you spell this in English) near Rzeszow! (Sorry you won't be the Scottish Country Dancing this Sunday either - due to a shoulder injury, I probably won't go either actually. Maybe Koh, Ants and Scot will come, however, to the free introductory party on Th, Sept 8th - which I'm guessing wouldn't make sense for you since you're heading to Poland for 2 weeks on the 10th).
You might enjoy this JuryX course from inspiring Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Charles Nesson - https://www.edx.org/course/juryx-deliberations-social-change-harvardx-hls3x-0 - in MIT UnHangouts (similar but different from Google Hangouts). Since you're all but a lawyer in Poland - with its two kinds of law :) ... civil and religious - this course might be interesting to you too re Creative Commons' licensed Poland World University and School http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Poland (planned in Polish, and accrediting on MIT OpenCourseWare - http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/translated-courses/) - and with planned online law degrees (in addition to undergraduate BS, Ph.D., M.D. and high school I.B. degrees - all in Polish too). JuryX begins September 27th, a few days after you return. CC is yet another form of law - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Creative_Commons_Law ! :)
I'll probably take this JuryX course for the second time. Charlie Nesson's course are really well designed, internet-centric, inspiring, conversation- and idea-centric and can generate a kind of flourishing in learning ... Might you be interested in this inspiring online course?
Bon voyage, Scott

Hi, Guilford President Fernandes and Friends at FAHE,

Thanks for your prompt email, Donn. I've enjoyed the Friends'Association for Higher Education conferences at both Haverford College, and George Fox University in Oregon - (and your presentation and panels there, Jane, especially. I also gave a presentation at George Fox on Friendly-informed World University and School and Growing the Society of Friends -
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_qhi-ehBdkdSWtPMXpvTVJPVGM/view). Unfortunately, I couldn't attend the Woodbrooke FAHE conference on behalf of World University due to insufficient finances.

Thank you for the updates, Donn, too on the "three criteria for institutional membership were discussed. They were: 1) a clear Quaker tradition; 2) reputable accreditation ( or substantial progress towards such accreditation); 3) and a stable, significant student body," which we had corresponded about this spring.

Concerning these updates, in exploring institutional membership for World University and School in FAHE, startup WUaS will be a pro bono "client" in a UC Berkeley Law class this autumn for the 2nd semester in a row, where we'll develop further in a number of ways legally. Creative Commons' licensed (CC) WUaS is already a 501 c 3 with plans to accredit on CC MIT OpenCourseWare in its 7 languages and CC Yale OYC, to offer online CC Bachelor, Ph.D., Law and M.D. degrees (as well as I.B. high school diplomas eventually) first in English but planned in all 200 countries' main and official languages. WUaS also is seeking to be incubated by the University of California for accreditation in a developing WASC senior / BPPE policies. I'm attaching last month's WUaS minutes from WUaS's open monthly business meeting conducted in the manner of Friends. All of this has bearing on item 2) "reputable accreditation" in your FAHE update, as well as possibly developing a stable student body (of highest achievers, which is a WUaS goal).

Concerning FAHE's item 1, I could share a recent blog post of mine laying out WUaS's clear Quaker traditions, for example, but I wonder if you could please let me know what FAHE might look for here in terms of criteria for this, etc.  The only outreach / advertising WUaS has done is in Western Friend Quaker magazine interestingly. Check out too the outreach video to FGC young friends that a SF Quaker Friend and I did together here - http://worlduniversityandschool.org.

In terms of 3) "a stable, significant student body," WUaS is seeking our first online applicants this autumn from around the worldfrom all 204 nation states (as if applying to Stanford or MIT) to matriculate online for, in a sense, free CC MIT degrees, in the autumn of 2017. If possible, WUaS will matriculate 2000 undergraduate students. Part of our business models' planned revenue streams involves reaching out to Ministries of Education in all countries, both national and local, as if their students were applying to MIT or Stanford which costs $44,000 per year per student; public K-12 education in this country is free to students, as WUaS would like to be at the University level (like some non-US countries are).

Jane, do you think Guilford graduates would be interested in accrediting CC online Ph.D., law and M.D. degrees at WUaS eventually, as well?

Thank you again for your email, Donn, and looking forward to communicating further about this.

Best, Scott

Hi, Donn and All,

Thanks for the calendar information re WUaS potentially applying for FAHE institutional membership. Let's stay in touch as WUaS develops our accreditation and student body. It would be great for WUaS to receive applications from students from all of FAHE's Quaker colleges' for free best STEM CC MIT OCW and Yale OYC planned Ph.D., Law, and M.D. degrees (with WUaS accrediting on CC MIT OCW, for example, with WASC senior). Are there any non-English speaking colleges which are FAHE members?

Glad Quaker / Friend Burl Amsbury of Colorado (with 3 MIT degrees, including a Master's degree from the MIT Sloan School of Management - which course ware is also available for free at MIT OCW) may be coming on as WUaS Chief Operating Officer.

Here, by the way, are WUaS's two main blogs -

http://worlduniversityandschool.blogspot.com

http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/search/label/global%20university

including

"14 WUaS Planned Revenue Streams" (as an example blog entry here) -

http://worlduniversityandschool.blogspot.com/2016/01/14-planned-wuas-revenue-streams.html


It would be great to communicate further about growing WUaS's student bodies (in many languages) at the Ph.D. and professional degree levels (law, M.D.) in collaboration with FAHE Quaker colleges.

Thank you!

Sincerely,
Scott

(Thank you for your excellent English!) 


  • How do you construe the role of "pay for performance" in the context of your analysis of labor vis-a-vis "Digital Methods and Social Development"? 
  • Scott MacLeod

    What do/might cross-language and cross-cultural comparison studies show in terms of time-management and digital methods and social development (e.g. theoretically in all 7,097 living languages/identities)?

What would the role of World University and School's universities in each of all nation states' analyses be in improving quality of life and economic prosperity in all countries?  (And re questions of "being" too?)

Wildlife of Zimbabwe: Interspecies' Communication and Veterinary Medicine at WUaS, Elephant-seeks-a-verterinarian-after-it-was-shot-story heard after online Quaker Meeting, Here is the beginning "Veterinary Medicine" wiki subject at WUaS - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Veterinary_Medicine - planned in all countries' main, official and AGRARIAN languages on the web, which should help many farmers, and their governments too!, In what ways could and are non-human species going to the internet, similarly, and asking for medical assistance? In what ways could farmers in remotest areas of all 200 nation states - with smart mobile phones - doing this too for their livestock as well as their own/themselves? In what ways can f/Ffriendly-informed WUaS help with this?


Hi, All,

Thanks, Mary, for Western Friend's online Quaker Meeting again yesterday, and nice to meet some of you therein. 

Per our after-Meeting conversation today, and Mary's elephant-seeks-a-verterinarian-after-it-was-shot-story, here's the Interspecies' Communication wiki subject at World University and School - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Interspecies_Communications - an example of a wiki subject for open teaching and learning, before CC WUaS moves to a new wiki emerging out of CC Wikidata (developed for CC Wikipedia's 358 languages). How to understand this episode of elephant-human interspecies' communication, in knowledge terms, reasoning even? And check out the ~2 main Quaker wiki subjects / schools on the main Subjects' wiki page - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Subjects (only in English so far) - where we can all create subjects about what we love for open teaching and learning, and which is planned for all 7,097 living languages. Many WUaS pages have CC MIT OCW in 7 languages and CC Yale OYC at the top, which courses WUaS will offer for credit (in group video conferencing, for one) for free CC accrediting university degrees planned online in all countries' main and official languages. 

I blog daily and some about Friends with much about WUaS; here's a recent blog post on WUaS and "Quaker" - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2016/08/dendrobium-world-univ-sch-and-its.html

Please teach to, add to, edit and create at WUaS's wiki especially after we move to a new wiki, if inclined as well as invite your f/Friends to do so as well! :) 

Friendly cheers, 
Scott

Hi, All, 

As a followup, and re Mary's elephant-seeks-a-verterinarian-after-it-was-shot-story in Western Friend magazine's Quaker Meeting today, here too is the beginning "Veterinary Medicine" wiki subject at WUaS - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Veterinary_Medicine - planned in all countries' main, official and AGRARIAN languages on the web, which should help many farmers, and their governments too! (While remaining wiki schools in all 7,943 languages, WUaS is planning to offer free online best STEM CC OpenCourseWare Bachelor, Ph.D., Law, M.D. as well as I.B. high school degrees - in all countries' main and official languages).

Friendly cheers, Scott
