Canna: Blog - happy Halloween . . .

Hi M.

As you may have seen in text message yesterday

Went to the Moraga library and successfully downloaded and listened to,  and also for 2nd book placed on hold, AUDIO books. A bit of a headache - older phone's operating system required older web application etc, but eventually it worked ... into these new virtual spaces on the road to Stanford ! You might went to try it - ask a librarian. Curious to do this to for WUaS! :) ...  https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Library_Resources ... in ~300 languages!

https://twitter.com/sgkmacleod/status/1057492844221554693
https://twitter.com/WorldUnivAndSch/status/1057492637769449473


Am hoping too California's BPPE Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education  ...

The Bureau is working to make the online Annual Report data process more efficient. As such, the portal will open mid-October with a mid-February due date. The Bureau will notify institutions with specific dates for the portal opening and due date.

... https://twitter.com/CaBPPE/status/1024666814989488134 may welcome World Uni & Sch's registration beginning today or soon :)



Such a 4-fold mattress/sofa bed could easily go in a camping van - to Harbin, for example, even. I might even see if I can eventually program a robot  - one like this https://twitter.com/rajat_shrimal/status/1056742973159981061 with legs - to take such a mattress out of a van or car (both actually life size, and in miniature in Lego - both physically and digitally in Brick Street View / Google Street View eventually), and place it on a Harbin wooden camping platform, and open it up :) (I could head up there with Leonie eventually even:) And with such a mattress, I could even set up a large tent on my porch and sleep out in it too, in lieu even of a canopy umbrella over a picnic table with deck furniture. Would create a kind of 3rd room (even for kids - a little like sleeping outside at Cuttyhunk in Augusts growing up :)

Oh the things you can do with a 3-fold 'modular' mattress :)


May see if I could give Scottish small pipe lessons from the Stanford Music School :) ... a pipe band under the guidance of Ian Whitelaw (whom I took lessons from a few years ago) too?

Again: Interesting to go to those 'virtual spaces' of the life of the mind ... whether this be through reading, creating virtually on the web, or envisioning a great sofa bed (https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2018/10/trifolium-pratense-how-to-move-from.html).

Hi Peter,

Auf Englisch: am appreciative and grateful for your languages communities - and especially for your German language Hangouts (my main focus). This Saturday, I'm in a Scottish Country Dancing workshop for musicians (Scottish small pipes and keyboard for me) just north of Berkeley so I won't make your Hangout then.

With your interest in social media platforms, I think you might find this talk by Harvard talk by Tarleton Gillespie fascinating -

https://cyber.harvard.edu/events/2018-10-30/custodians-internet

https://twitter.com/WorldUnivAndSch/status/1057324011749703681


https://twitter.com/scottmacleod/status/1057355978138562560

- and I'll let you know when it's posted. It could have much relevance for a World University and School platform for all 8 billion learners in ~200 countries (for a UBI newly defined as assistive technologies even re a single cryptocurrency with block chain ledger backed by ~200 countries' central banks?), and possibly emerging from Google plus even.

There's a possibility that, as World University and School / the WUaS Press / Corp grows, you could conceivably become one of the richest men in Europe, so looking forward to staying in touch as WUaS begins the accreditation process with the state of California - https://twitter.com/CaBPPE/status/1024666814989488134 - which could have bearing on WUaS as platform for matriculating students as well.

Hi P and B,

Nice to see you both yesterday evening at SCD.

How to move from OpenBand for Scottish Country Dancers to something like this for Scottish Country Dancers ... https://youtu.be/vkfiQxh6Xig and re these South African SCDers? Perhaps we'd have to innovate Berkeley-wise and re these South African youth -

Just voted by mail in Contra Costa County ... a pretty straight democratic ticket ...

Friend Jenny Selgrath, a Stanford lecturer/Post Doc at Hopkins Marine Center posted this: a haiku #voting guide #VotingMatters -

https://twitter.com/JennySelgrath/status/1056748955118198784 ...: :)

Sent in my ballot via USPO and didn't drop it off at the Moraga Town Hall after all. Vote early and often - legally - i.e. other people may read the votes you make early, if entered early, and this could influence their voting :)

Do you both vote early by mail etc, since internet voting doesn't happen yet, and it will be fascinating to see how voting online may affect the decisions we make as a society as voters in new ways ... and potentially in all ~200 countries' official languages?

HI M,

I'm a great appreciator of when we talk. Thank you my good mother. And I just voted last night as you probably saw from my email 10 hours ago.

And yet another sofa bed IDEA  ...

Being able to easily move it into my bed room makes sense / has appeal as well ... wheels or lightweight, or even no frame also may make sense for my small modular house-let.


Charm/beauty has ongoing appeal too. But because of portability, am heading back to a single 3 fold mattress that's also a mini-sofa, and I could eventually get two. I might even sleep out on my deck with this :)

4in Thick Folding Portable Twin Mattress Topper w/ High-Density Foam, Washable Cover (85.99)
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Best-Choice-Products-4in-Thick-Folding-Portable-Twin-Mattress-Topper-w-High-Density-Foam-Washable-Cover/54051679

(and rather than 4" Folding Portable Mattress ,Sofa Bed For Guests With Ventilated Mesh Cover ($69)
https://www.walmart.com/ip/4-Folding-Portable-Mattress-Sofa-Bed-For-Guests-With-Ventilated-Mesh-Cover/219013460 )

The simplicity here could be a bit of a Quaker thinking too. Washability is good for allergen avoidance, and I could find a beautiful washable cover too. :)


And I may seek to teach YOGA again in my front room in small classes, in which case having all the floor space accessible is great (except for the tall bookcase; another horizontal big book case of mine is on wheels and rolls through my bedroom door, and I can carry my table too through the door too). (Yoga is a good thing ... and newly re - http://www.scottmacleod.com/yoganotations.html!)

...

I may also start to explore making delicious hearty soups soon, as a staple - for health, eating many natural foods, flavor, warmth from the stove, creativity and value +++  ... :)

Have an ongoing focus on goodness re ethics' here (and, for me, I think in terms of Quaker peace testimony a bit, and which I can translate into non-violence or ahimsa thinking). I'm also seeking to generate care and love in life ... and I wonder whether ... but also to generate care and love in life re World Univ & Sch even ... part of 'a good life' - see my own thoughts about 'a good life' at bottom here ... https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2018/10/chrysanthemum-morifolium-stanford-talk.html ...

What is a good life for you, M?

Really nice to talk, and I'll keep you posted about the public library MP3 audio books files to smart phone discoveries I make (where, if interested, you could probably just ask at your public library, and hand them your smartphone to show you the first time, if you might be interested:). Am seeking here to begin to listen to audio books on my smartphone on my trips to Stanford. :)

Hoping Sioux's email yesterday opens a way to connecting further with  ... And ongoing thinking about what a great queen size sofa bed would be for under the window ... and then trying to design it / find it ... thanks to you! Interesting to go to those 'virtual spaces' of the life of the mind ... whether this be through reading, creating virtually on the web, or envisioning a great sofa bed.

Interesting to go to those 'virtual spaces' of the life of the mind ... whether this be through reading, creating virtually on the web, or envisioning // thinking through getting a great sofa bed.

What are you up to this week? Stay warm (If I teach a course at Stanford with Lego Robotics, may seek to model how repairing the leak in your basement might be fixed with this, as one practical challenge :).

L, Scott

The Tourism Studies Working Group is pleased to announce

HARBIN AND AVATAR BOTS:
Robotics and Tourism
Scott MacLeod
Professor of Anthropology
World University and School, Online
Friday, October 26, 5:00pm
Gifford Room, 221 Kroeber Hall
University of California, Berkeley

Abstract:
The tourist in the information technology age, and avatar bots: in this talk, I examine physical < > digital tourism with Lego robotics, Brick Street View & Google Street View, conceptually, and in relation to my actual < > virtual Harbin Hot Springs’ ethnographic project. Harbiniana is a physical/digital Bot, who does Watsu, and is an anthropologist: “How would you teach me about Harbin in this early phase of artificial intelligence/machine learning and robotics?“ Harbiniana is also interested in human cultures/counterculture. Furthermore, in this talk I seek to lay the groundwork conceptually for the study of great enjoyment, or loving bliss, in the Harbin warm pool and via an anthropological approach to brain science. A realistic 3D interactive virtual earth at the cellular and atomic too (think Google Street View+ with Brick Street View for Legos+) will give radically new potentials for studying brain chemistry with brain wave head sets, and in the Harbin warm pool, and both actually as well as virtually, physically and digitally. In this presentation, I also suggest that wiki ethnography generation in a realistic virtual earth – which I’m calling, as a new social science method, ‘ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy ‘– is a new kind of fieldwork to actual and virtual Harbin Hot Springs. Lastly, I examine questions of “robotic authenticity,” and for Watsu, or water dance, a creative Harbin innovation – now both actually, and potentially virtually.

Speaker Bio:
Scott G.K. MacLeod is an American academic and Professor of Sociocultural Anthropology at World University and School - worlduniversityandschool.org. He's taught "Network Society, Information Technology and the Global University" on Harvard University's virtual island, and on Penn State Isle in Second Life as a Penn State University instructor. He's taught both anthropology and sociology in real life at Chatham University, the University of Pittsburgh, and at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He received a Master's Degree in anthropology from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and a Diploma of Research from the University of Edinburgh. His research focuses on the information technology network society age, the world wide web cosmos, the virtual, and actual-virtual Harbin Hot Springs, seeking to facilitate the development of a realistic virtual earth for STEM research, and as classrooms (Think Google Street View with time slider +). He is World University and School's founder, president and CEO. WUaS forked successfully in 2017 into a second legal entity, the WUaS Press / Corp, planned with machine translation in all 7,097 living languages. Wiki World University and School is CC-4 MIT OCW-centric (in 5 languages) and CC Yale OYC-centric and seeks to develop major universities in all ~200 countries' main and official languages, as well as wiki schools in all 7,097 living languages too; WUaS plans to offer online CC OCW Bachelor, Ph.D., law, M.D. as well as I.B. high school degrees, partly in group video.

I also blogged about this today, including adding some further robotics, brainwave headsets, and museums' resources re the Q & A, including the interesting Museums' video talk - https://youtu.be/LM5xtk23cv0 - about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings and looking at remembrances of this from a museum curator's perspective by Rainey Tisdale (who went to Haverford as an undergraduate, and may have Quaker roots as well - https://ems-web.quaker.haverford.edu/MasterCalendar/EventDetails.aspx?EventDetailId=68049) ... or a robotics' perspective.  

Lewis River, Washington state: UC Berkeley Gifford room talk - "HARBIN AND AVATAR BOTS: Robotics and Tourism" - in the Anthropology Department, Slides from this talk, 32:50 Loving bliss, 103:55 Livermore oil fields / Harbin Hot Springs' geothermal as comparative actual-virtual, physical-digital field sites, and for Lego robotics, Physical robots in Lego WeDo 2.0 ... into Brick Street View? … The Spyrobot - WeDo 2.0, Volcano Alert, QA - Robots creating a memorial of the terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon, and which robots wouldn't be affected sympathizing with the loss expressed in the remembrances and memorials, and in creating a museum exhibit, so that museum curator Rainey Tisdale, who might be overwhelmed by the pathos of what she was seeing, and thus get sidetracked, could focus on other aspects of creating such a remembrance, Brainwave headset and robotic arm programmed to choose between 3 choices ... https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2018/10/lewis-river-washington-state-uc.html ...

Thank you again,
Scott

In response to a question in the Q&A ...

Robots creating a memorial of the terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon, and which robots wouldn't be affected sympathizing with the loss expressed in the remembrances and memorials, and in creating a museum exhibit, so that museum curator Rainey Tisdale, who might be overwhelmed by the pathos of what she was seeing, and thus get sidetracked, could focus on other aspects of creating such a remembrance.

Thank you to Rainey Tisdale '94 for coming back to Haverford and speaking to our students as a part of our Fords on Friday program! To hear more of Rainey's tips, check out our blog at http://ow.ly/aO3550jo4jt  or her TEDx talk at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LM5xtk23cv0&feature=youtu.be

South American coati: Visit the Harbin gate here http://tinyurl.com/p62rpcg "Walk" down road "4 miles" to Middletown & "Amble" around the streets ~ Can we just code in a movable Lego train in Brick Street View in Google Street View+ here ... a beginning to creating a realistic virtual earth with PhysicalDigital ActualVirtual Lego? And in what ways could this moving train in Brick Street View become the beginning coding too for the firing of neurons in the brain (in Google Street View + at the cellular level)?
