Socotra dragon tree: Electronically-mediated, WUaS, monthly, business meetings, open, hour-long and free, WUaS Monthly Business Meeting page - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/WUaS_Monthly_Business_Meeting, This is, and has been from the beginning some years' ago, WUaS's mode of f/Friendly 'governance,' and consensus process and openness are therefore key, democratic, unfolding components of this



Universitians,

I'm thinking through our electronically-mediated, WUaS, monthly, business meetings here, and how to welcome us all on easily in these.

Free Conference Call does have Free International Conference Calls - http://www.freeconferencecall.com/free-international-conference-call/#.Uddkoj44Vvk - and it looks like Spain (vis-a-vis J) and the UK (vis-a-vis S) are on their list, but neither Indonesia (vis-a-vis T) nor Greece (vis-a-vis S) are - http://www.freeconferencecall.com/fcci/internationalnumbers.aspx?lang=US&altlang=EN&phonenumber=+1%20760%20569%207070#.UddlBD44Vvk.

And while Google + group video Hangouts are available in all our countries, they keep changing things around, and one time I couldn't find the 'Start a G+ Hangout' button. I think this is a similar challenge for other Board Members ... G+ Hangouts are not entirely intuitive, even when I send the G+Hangout URL beforehand ... perhaps because they continue to change things around in this development phase.

Keeping everyone on the Board in the loop electronically seems really important, potentially or actually, especially since Indonesia, for example, is a large country, has an unique language, and will benefit from free, online MIT OCW-centric education (as will Malaysia). So I'm leaning toward G+ group video Hangouts for monthly business meetings.

The button "Start a Google + Hangout" is here - https://plus.google.com/hangouts - part way down the page now on the right.

And here's a related, "Start a Google + Hangout" video - http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/hangouts/onair.html - (once again new).

And here's a related "Join a Google + Hangout" video - https://support.google.com/plus/answer/1669212?hl=en.

What do people think further about electronic mediation in monthly business meetings? Your voices, ideas and conversation are very valued in monthly business meeting.

(By the way, I haven't heard a word from S in a long time, so I'm assuming he's no longer interested in being on the WUaS Board, and I may not add him to the BPPE forms unless I hear back from him, - although WUaS greatly appreciates his knowledge of both Greece and Britain and connectedness, - but I will add G, with whom I've been in touch with quite recently).

I'm glad to say L in Pennsylvania is going to have a grandchild, or has had one, any day now.

The next meeting is WUaS monthly business meeting on Saturday, July 13 in eight days.

Best,

I just created a new WUaS Monthly Business Meeting page -

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

accessible from the World University and Foundation, wiki page -

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

where I hope WUaS can add the WUaS business meeting minutes from the past few years.

Hi R and Universitians,

Thanks for the feedback to the question: "What do people think and want to do about our electronically-mediated, open, monthly business meeting? "

"I would record and podcast the meetings. Set up a spot on the wiki to keep notes and discussion.

-R"


As you probably know, some recordings, agendas and minutes are in the WUaS's blog (http://worlduniversityandschool.blogspot.com/) in the 'Business Meeting' label -

http://worlduniversityandschool.blogspot.com/search/label/Business%20Meeting -

with a fair number, now, of videos of monthly business meeting (see: https://www.youtube.com/WorldUnivandSch).


Again, I just created a new WUaS Monthly Business Meeting page -

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

accessible from the World University and Foundation, wiki page -

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

where I hope WUaS can add the WUaS business meeting minutes from the past few years.

As Universitians know, this is, and has been from the beginning some years' ago, WUaS's mode of f/Friendly 'governance,' and consensus process and openness are therefore key, democratic, unfolding components of this.

Thanks for the feedback to this thread's question.


The next, open, hour-long, electronically-mediated, WUaS, monthly business meeting is on Saturday, July 13 at 9 am PT.


Best regards,
Scott

Nice effort. The page seems more like a dump then a curated list. Is a more focused page listed elsewhere?

R,

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, the whole, WUaS, Wikia wiki needs to be moved-on from, and with an eye to design.

Wikia is now advertising with videos and sound now on many WUaS pages :( but WUaS doesn't yet have the resources to make the change.

I'll try to clean up the new, WUaS Monthly Business Meeting page - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/WUaS_Monthly_Business_Meeting - and add past minutes, etc., - but in the move from Wikia to Wikidata, hopefully, WUaS would like to keep a Steve Jobs' Beautiful-Design eagle eye out, as it unfolds. Perhaps we can work on this together.

I just added the new, first, WUaS Outreach Video (partly for 11th graders at Friends' General Conference in Colorado this past week) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTzo7MFhJqk - to WUaS's main page here - http://scottmacleod.com/worlduniversityandschool.htm - and linked this main page to the WUaS's G + company page -  https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/108179352492243955816/108179352492243955816/posts.

Thanks again for the feedback.

Cheers,
Scott
