Charles Mok, Alvin Yeung and Professor Ming Chan (do I have your correct email address Prof. Chan?),
Thanks for your great Stanford "China's Hong Kong at 21: Front Line Perspectives" panel - http://events.stanford.edu/events/791/79185/ - and very nice to meet you. Thank you too, Prof Chan! (What led you to teach at Swarthmore College, Prof. Chan, if I might ask? I have some Swarthmore and Quaker connections).
I continue to be curious how you and Hong Kong might benefit from the Stanford Law China Guiding Cases Project -
More about World University and School, which is like Wikipedia in 300 languages with CC-4 MIT OpenCourseWare in its 5 languages with time.
In what ways might we explore creating many many academic & staff careers together via World University and School as WUaS seeks to become the online MIT / Stanford of the Internet - and in Traditional Chinese - https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/translated-courses/traditional-chinese/ - and with online accrediting Bachelor, Ph.D., Law, Medicine, as well as I.B. high school online, for example - and the China Law School at WUaS - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/China_Law_School_at_WUaS (planned in Chinese)? How might 'accreditation' for this work in Hong Kong, and how might WUaS find highest achieving Chinese-speaking students, perhaps taking law courses in Chinese - among OCW for many different degrees - and perhaps with Stanford Law helping to share this OCW in Chinese?
I'm considering coming to the 'Hong Kong in Silicon Valley' event tomorrow at De Anza College from 4-5:30, but can't find anything out about online so far. Could you possibly please point me to a web site? It would be very nice to meet you again. Thank you.
Best regards, Scott

Here is an update for the venue at De Anza College on 8/11/2018. We are holding the event in FOR3, which is within the forum buildings. I have updated the event poster. Parking lot C would be the most convenient for parking spaces, I will see whether I can get parking permits for the event and I will get back to you guys soon. Please see the attachment below and please let me know if there are any other questions.

Dear Ming, Charles, Alvin and Alan,
Thanks, Ming, so much for sending me information about how to get to the De Anza college on Friday evening. And thanks again for your excellent panel presentations, Alvin and Charles (and excellent questions, Hayman, too!) Great to see you again, Ming and Alan, as well (and re - http://events.stanford.edu/events/791/79185/ - which was part of - https://ceas.stanford.edu/events/symposium-chinas-hong-kong-sar-20-interdisciplinary-perspectives - which I didn't attend). Alan, please see below the email I sent to Prof. Chan, Charles and Alvin on August 10th, for further information about World University and School's direction.
Am curious about World Univ & Sch eventually matriculating something-like 2000 Chinese-speaking/writing matriculating undergraduates, 2000 Ph.D. students - in about 36 majors, based on MIT OCW's 36 departments - as well as 1000 law students and 500 medical degree students PER YEAR. these students would be studying for their free-to-students' online degrees over 4 years for an undergraduate degrees (as if studying at MIT or Stanford) from their apartments and homes - in Hong Kong, in Xian, in Guangzhou, and all over China - with this MIT OCW as initial OCW https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/translated-courses/traditional-chinese/ which we would have to further develop, and thus create Chinese WUaS faculty in the process.
Professor Chan, would you consider becoming head of Hong Kong studies at World University and School with open course ware in Chinese - both in Mandarin - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Mandarin_language_(Chinese) (planned in Mandarin) - and Cantonese (yet to be made), etc.?
Very nice to see you again, and thank you.
