1. Welcome and Greetings

1.1 News:

Dear Universitians and friends, 


A Reed College - CC MIT OCW - CC Yale OYC - CC WUaS Strategic Partnership?

A Consortium between Reed College, CC MIT OCW, CC Yale OYC and CC World University and School as strategic partners? A Creative Commons' great universities-focused consortium?, Reed College students - Reedies - would benefit by jobs and free CC university degrees and in large languages (internships, externships, fellowships, law and faculty positions, and careers), Similarly with MIT OCW & Yale OYC, WUaS would benefit by Reedies, Yalies, and MIT students working at WUaS, as well as co-generating great CC OpenCourseWare in many languages toward free CC online degrees ... All Creative Commons' licensed ... MIT OCW, MIT OCW Translated Courses, Spanish MIT OCW, Traditional Chinese MIT OCW et al., Yale OYC, WUaS, Google Education on Air -

What would WUaS academic interns, say Reedies, and say in online Work Study (FWS - Federal Work Study) beginning in June 2015, do?, Toward CC Degrees, Interns will be - Wiki-developers in all 8,000 languages, Aggregators / curators to become familiar with WUaS as Wiki, Explainers, Graders, Instructors (opportunity!), Generators of an online learning conversation especially, WUaS_Intern_positions, Internship_Program_at_World_University_and_School, WUaS_General_Manager, Can WUaS hire and employ 700,000 such interns annually - 18-19 year olds - in all 8,000 languages?

The San Francisco Friends' Meeting (Quaker) Gatherings' Assistance fund will not provide financial assistance of around $750 to WUaS for Scott to attend the Friends Association of Higher Education (FAHE) conference at George Fox University near Portland Oregon from June 18-21, where Scott has been invited to give a 30 minute presentation on behalf of WUaS. Scott plans to do this as WUaS outreach, so WUaS is seeking other funding sources, and welcomes your contributions - - toward this.

WUAS is exploring a collaboration between Mondragon University TA (in Basque country), Team Academy (TA) originating in Finland and which teaches building cooperative companies, as an undergraduate WUAS major, WUaS, and as ISSIP Grand Challenge value co-creation possibilities. See too: 

"Cooperatives wiki subject page at WUaS, Basque language and Basque country WUaS, Euskara (Basque language) Wikipedia, Mondragon Team Academy where Students Create Cooperatives with Specific Pragmatic Company and Entrepreneurial Startup Targets Every Year, Mondragon University's Team Academy (MUTA) and WUaS collaborations for a WUaS undergraduate major?, WUaS ISSIP Grand Challenge and these, MIT OCW-centric WUaS wiki projects in Spanish, in Turkish, in Arabic plus, Cooperatives are generally owned by their workers, who vote, and which legal structures, country to country, are typically very egalitarian, WUaS to help create especially Information Technology online cooperative companies"

Glad for 501 (c) (3) WUaS to finally have a small business bank account, x5389, based on WUaS's EIN number, which WUaS received upon incorporation in April of 2010 (state / federal). (WUaS has had a Wells' bank account, x9028, since then but based on Scott's Social Security number, and with WUaS written on the checks, and WUaS will still retain this account x9028 which is also linked to PayPal). 

I think WUaS has been vetted successfully, and importantly, by Wells Fargo bank, and it's taken years. It's a another big step for WUaS to have set up this account. 

See, too, Guidestar for the WUaS EIN + : 


This month we'll meet in Free Conference Call.
