Bird with uplifted wings: Assistive Technologies, Coding for these, Related Headsets?, Resources for ACCESS to WUaS, Ways YOU Can Program WUaS

Recent Harvard talk (last Tuesday, Nov. 8) -

"Preventing Societal Discrimination: Accessible Web Design for People with Disabilities" -

World Univ & Sch will surf, incorporate and create with, such developments -

http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University -

into the future, in all 3,000-8,000 languages and 200 countries.

{This is a great, creative, and information technology-innovative, unfolding opportunity}.

World Univ & Sch plans to move soon from Wikia to MediaWiki, probably, and would like to incorporate such developing assistive technologies' code into it, targeting esp. an 18 year old + audience, for free MIT OCW-based degrees (Bachelors, Ph.D., Law and Medical degrees) per this talk - http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/events/luncheon/2011/11/lazar.


W3 Consortium Validator for this?


Such Headsets like Tan Le's TED Talk "A headset that reads your brainwaves" - http://www.ted.com/talks/tan_le_a_headset_that_reads_your_brainwaves.html - which moves a digital cube close and far, and without gel, and Andrew Junker's Brainfingers.com - http://www.brainfingers.com/ - you can pick letters to form words from a key board ... have to be deeply relaxed to use this ... - will eventually transform assistive technologies, I think, and World Univ & Sch - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University - would like to begin to code for these, from its beginning in a new wiki format, in all 3,000-8,000 languages.


Three, new, wiki, subject pages at World Univ & Sch with MIT OCW - Assistive Technologies - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Assistive_Technologies ; Wireless Technologies - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Wireless_Technologies ; and Mobile Technologies - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Mobile_Technologies - You can start to teach, learn and create right at these pages, now, from so many angles ...


Here are two, further, possibly-relevant, wiki, WUaS pages, among many, to open access () to computing around the world :

with an invitation to edit a page, teach, learn or create at this wiki.

I just added the new "Assistive Technologies" page - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Assistive_Technologies -

to the WUaS I.T. and Data Plan, above.



Harvard talk online, this morning, again, 9:30 am PT -

"Program Your City: Legal and Governance Issues of an Urban Integrated Open Data API" ...

... curious about the ways in which this talk may inform

how YOU can program World Univ & Sch, as a developing wiki -
