No more about a "Dr. Ambulance Snowplow RoboDoc MD DDS" for medicine in Alaska and the Arctic circles, and no more about a Persian speaking "Bahai'i teacher and caregiver Shri Robo" for sharing Bahai'i compassion and teachings here. Hopefully these are fun and engaging ideas nevertheless.
See you anon.
Warm regards, Scott

Pin, I wonder if robots like this recent envisioning (by me) at Stanford Law - Dr. Surge Robot Doc MD DDS (conceptually like Sophia the KSA citizen robot) - will be in our future, and for making it through Alaskan storms, for example, to help patients medically who are stuck in their homes - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2018/02/river-surfing-i-am-dr-surge-robot-doc.html - per your focus in these PDFs? What do you think?
Warm regards, Scotty

Hi Pin, Saumitra and Neely,
Pin (aka Sid Mazumdar), what are these papers, with your name in them?
Frontier Extended Stay Clinic -
And how might we best collaborate further, and potentially re the WUaS online medical schools - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/World_University_Medical_School - with online teaching hospitals - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Hospital - for clinical care, as well as potentially with Stanford Medicine?
And did you happen to write this wonderful book's "Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard" back cover description: "A festival of comic eccentricity - exudes charisma, poetry, and joy in language and life" (Baltimore Sun). It sounds like it could be you. :)
Warm regards, Scott

How are you? How's your Sunday going?
Am enjoying the wonderful book "Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard." Have you read this 1998 book by Kiran Desai (from India, but living in the U.S.)? Its back cover description reads "A festival of comic eccentricity - exudes charisma, poetry, and joy in language and life" (Baltimore Sun) which is apt :) And the NYTs says "Enchanting ..." ... You might enjoy it a lot. (E gave it to me a while ago). After our dinner last Sunday, I came home and read the last chapter of this wonderful comic satire ("Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard"), then began its first chapter again, - delightfully once more. India is so interesting, and this book does justice to its-own-unique
-jazz-of-life-there in so many ways - and very humorously. Yay for the novel! :)
Cultural design: If you look down and slightly to the right to the center when driving my 2005 Prius, you'll see the MPG average number, and if you drive generally slower than 65 mph looking at the odometer in front of you, (as the driver), which many people seem to enjoy seeing go up as they drive fast, the MPG (Miles per Gallon) number to the right can go UP quite readily. So the MPG number goes up when the Odometer/Speedometer number goes down - often. Some people like to see some kinds of numbers going up in this time we live in, so why not the average MPG number - lowering fuel costs and pollution etc? Some Americans / Westerners seem culturally fixated however on speed / odometers / speedometers - maybe it's the higher faster stronger thing of the Olympics. But I think of this alternative number (MPG) going up as a kind of Taoist or even Shinto (balance in nature?) approach to technology design. It's also kind of a meditative way of thinking (looking down, quieting the mind, and perhaps off in an oblique direction) as well perhaps. And if you look down and to the left you can look backwards via the mirror ... Hmmm ... This 12 year old Toyota Prius is so well-designed (and gets about ~44 miles per gallon fuel efficiency - amazing!), and I'm very appreciative of this :) (although I have to repair both the clicking sound around the shifter for ~700 $ and the "actuator" in the passenger door for another ~$700 soon ). :(
As you know, I went to to the newly built open-classroom-schools, Ridge Hill School near New Haven CT in about '69 and then to Green Acres School in Rockville MD ~'71. Here are these two open-classroom schools I went to - https://twitter.com/scottmacle
od/status/967868732163833862 - and you can visit them a bit in Google Street View now too, and they still look familiar, but the time slider feature isn't yet available to take one back to the year one wants to see / immerse oneself in, for example. The newly built-at-the-time Ridge Hill School in Hamden, CT, had big open classrooms named Apollo and Gemini, if I remember clearly - and named after the recent space missions ... and coming out of the 1960s, this architecture expresses a whole new way of thinking about school and education :) And my teachers at the Newhall Street School in New Haven (preceding Ridge Hill and Green Acres) were mostly African American, if I remember correctly too - a Mrs. Cofield for one. What do you recall of these schools, M?
May head Scottish Country Dancing tomorrow evening in San Jose from Stanford, to dance a bit, having only gone to this one a few times.
