Hi Juan and All,
Can you please confirm that you're coming to WUAS's Annual Business Meetingas you wrote a few days ago, Juan ... firstname.lastname@example.org or similar email? Larry confirmed last night. Tito especially? Govind especially?, Jayne, Julian? Other friends?
Glad that CC WUaS has successfully donated our beginning Wikia wiki to CC Wikidata (we've gotten into the Wikidata daily log for example), but I haven't yet learned how I can keep developing it in a newly modified WUaS MediaWiki (accessible here -
worlduniversityandschool.org/) or how we'll dovetail further with Wikidata's development planning. Our contacts seem to be Lydia, Magnus and Quim.
Looking forward to hour-long WUaS annual business meeting.
Hi Juan, Govind, Larry and All,
It's the Creative Commons' licensing as sharing licensing that brings together all the amazing CC MIT OCW in 7 languages with CC Wikipedia/Wikidata/Wikibase in all 289 languages, CC Yale OYC and CC WUaS planned for all 8000 + languages. This is the central core of WUaS on the CC side. But you're right, CC WUaS can't use the name MIT OCW in promotions due to MIT's Office of the Name, but not due to trademark issues, as I understand it.
The problem I'm running into now in writing the Wikidata proposal in the current draft has to do with CC MIT OCW's strategic partnership with Amazon.com - http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/
electrical-engineering-and- computer-science/6-00sc- introduction-to-computer- science-and-programming- spring-2011/references/ - and WUaS's business plan for revenue streams on the non CC side - see items 5-9 here - http:// worlduniversityandschool. blogspot.com/2015/09/wuass- business-model-update- creative.html.
But I went ahead and sent in this proposal to Wikidata anyway - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.
And with subsequent developments, Govind, WUaS will be able to plan further in greater detail.
More grant-writing ahead.
