Andean condor: Wikimedia movement strategy process and re World University ("[Wikimedia-l] Update on Wikimedia movement strategy process (#1!)"), How to get the CC MIT OCW in 7 languages into CC Wikidata from CC Wikiversity and then emerging into Wikiversity further as front end on the WUaS SUBJECT TEMPLATE (and for many languages and even so the course catalog could be printable) is a next big WUaS planning question?, Re WUaS outreach, maybe WUaS could connect through WMF after this with our other neighbor in downtown SF - Salesforce - and their head of AI and marketing, R.S. with a Stanford Ph.D. in CS (and for our for-profit side too with a book store and academic press planned in all 8k languages)


Hi Kate, 

Thanks for your fascinating, timely and important WMF strategy email just now.

Having donated CC World University and School to CC Wikidata last October 2015 (see my email to Wayne Calhoon from this morning below, as well as re meeting Stephen LaPorte for the first time at the WMF SF salon on 11/30), and seeking to develop wiki schools in all 8k languages and ~206 countries' (per 2016 Olympics) main and official languages ("Harvards of the web") - as well as to develop a for-profit WUaS wing in all 8k languages and 200 countries' main languages http://worlduniversityandschool.blogspot.com/2016/01/14-planned-wuas-revenue-streams.html - I wonder how WUaS could be further part of the strategic conversation you outline. Thank you. 

Sincerely, Scott


Hi Way, 

Looking forward to seeing you today at the Canyon PO, and to explore partly developing WUaS newly in Wikiversity/Wikidata at my place. 

Having met WMF general counsel Stephen LaPorte at the 11/30 salon (for the first time) at the Wikimedia Foundation SF, when I also gave the spontaneous talk about WUaS (thank you, again), I wonder further about getting WUaS's donation of WUaS to Wikidata, and now our possible exploration of developing WUaS in Wikidata on an upcoming WMF agenda per https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_board_agenda_2016-12 . 

Here's the front page of WUaS in MediaWiki in archive.org from early 2016 - https://web.archive.org/web/20150324001526/http://worlduniversityandschool.org/mediawiki-1.24.1/index.php?title=Main_Page - and some related links and plans -  







And here especially are all the pages WUaS made in MediaWiki in archive.org, in two languages - English and German - 


and which also highlight how WUaS will be structured, re further communications with Helmi ... . 

How to get the CC MIT OCW in 7 languages into CC Wikidata from CC Wikiversity and then emerging into Wikiversity further as front end on the WUaS SUBJECT TEMPLATE (and for many languages and even so the course catalog could be printable) is a next big WUaS planning question.


Re WUaS outreach, maybe WUaS could connect through WMF after this with our other neighbor in downtown SF - Salesforce - and their head of AI and marketing, Richard Socher with a Stanford Ph.D. in CS (and for our for-profit side too with a book store and academic press planned in all 8k languages).


See you at 2 at the Canyon PO. 

Regards, 
Scott
