Just went to a Stanford Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders' Talk with Rebecca Lynn which was fascinating:
I asked her afterward about Creative Commons' licensing and venture capital, as oxymoronic, mentioning World University and School's plans to offer online best STEM CC OpenCourseWare-centric medical schools (http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University_Medical_School) and teaching hospitals online (http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Hospital), in most countries' main languages, since she's interested in health care as an investment. She's also a lawyer and went to UC Berkeley's law school.
Creative Commons may be a kind of moat in language she uses to describe businesses in which the firms where's she's a partner might invest.
Might she become a WUaS Board Member? I may explore asking her eventually.
After meeting her and asking her a question, I had the good fortune to meet and talk briefly with Stanford Professor of Business Tom Byers (https://profiles.stanford.edu/thomas-byers), who also went to UC Berkeley, who interviewed for example Laurene Powell Jobs some time ago:
He asked me where I live and I said in the East Bay Hills, and I also mentioned that I was developing WUaS. He asked me why I was developing World University and School, and I said because it's fascinating and will help a lot of people, and that we'd like to become the Stanford of the Internet. He then asked how I came to develop WUaS, and I said it began in a course I was teaching on Harvard's virtual world, and I've just continued to develop it since then (2007) (as a kind of leading).
Noticed too that in this series last week, Scott Cook, founder of Intuit was the speaker - http://ecorner.stanford.edu/authorMaterialInfo.html?mid=3594 - whom Tom introduced in this Stanford Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders' series - http://etl.stanford.edu/. I wish I had come to this, since WUaS may seek to develop with such financial software, but I'm glad we can watch this video.
On this day in 1885, the Founding Grant to establish the university was signed: http://stanford.io/1lko3c6 #Stanford125
Happy 125th anniversary, Stanford: The Wind of Freedom Blows ~ and for World University and School as well!
