Very nice to meet you in person (and Jeff too!). Thanks, too, for the inspiring collaborative Scratch "teaching and playing" event yesterday at the Exploratorium. (I posted your inspiring Harvard GSE commencement speech - https://www.youtube.com/watch?
v=dPGAplELF3Q - in WUaS's blog last year - http:// worlduniversityandschool. blogspot.com/2015/06/ brilliant-inspiring-virtuosic- faculty.html). I think we play from a similar "let's construct this knowledge together, instead of me just sharing" musical improvisational sheet music score - and I hope that Wiki and MIT OCW-centric World University and School might be able to explore this in new ways in all 7,097 living languages - with high achieving graduate students teaching to MIT and Yale faculty in group video conferencing for accreditation planning - and in accrediting WUaS universities in all countries main languages. (The 2008 Olympics had 204 countries participating! And WUaS will seek to create online major universities potentially in all of their main languages if possible to offer online free CC BA/BS, Ph.D., law and M.D. degrees, as well as I.B. high school diplomas). Perhaps Tatiana could become the head of the Moldova WUaS (and not the Albania or Russia World University and Schools!:)
CC WUaS is looking to re-vamp our web site (eventually with adding CC MIT OCW in 7 languages to CC Wikidata in 300+ Wikipedia languages as a "back end" with machine learning and machine translation), and I'm wondering if you, or possibly Jeff, could recommend some developers at Harvard, MIT or in the Boston area please, since accrediting WUaS is seeking high school student applicants to apply this autumn and matriculate online in autumn 2017? Any chance, too, some of your great students would be interested in teaching online at WUaS beginning in autumn 2017?
Thank you again - and great to meet and talk with you face-to-face in person!
As a followup question, how might WUaS build in or incorporate Scratch into all of WUaS's universities and schools and for translation of it too? Planning for such possible Scratch integration will make for a complicated all-languages' WUaS web site!
Thanks again, Scott
Enjoyed too, Karen, your inspirational Google group video Hangouts as office hours/Harvard classes even, and as examples for teaching face-to-face online with high achieving graduate students collaboratively:

A blog-ethnography or blognography?
Karen and team are awesomely collaboratively teaching and learning inspiring.
