Oregano: Stanford Anthro talk - "My Life as a Spy: Investigations in a Secret Police File," What role did possibly being a hippy play in your time in Romania with regard to your book?, Reed College and Stanford's Katherine Verdery - (Professor), Romania World University and School, Concerned here too about democracy, social justice and human rights (see wiki subjects below with MIT OCW) in all ~200 countries and their official and main languages, and am thinking that WUaS will be able to hire the faculty online, hopefully Stanford and Reedie graduate students for example, to teach this as graduate student instructors, to begin



Dear Katherine, (and Nancy),

Thanks for your excellent Stanford Anthropology talk yesterday: "My Life as a Spy: Investigations in a Secret Police File" - https://anthropology.stanford.edu/events/colloquium/my-life-spy-investigations-secret-police-file - and great to meet you right before your talk. (I went to Reed from '79-85 and lived in Portland until '87, majoring in Religion, and to some degree in German too). What did you major in at Reed? (I just noticed in Reed's Iris directory that you majored in Anthropology in '70 - a fascinating time in Oregon, I'd think ... https://iris.reed.edu/directory/alum/130781 - and your Ph.D. from Stanford in Anthropology in 1977, also a fascinating time and place).

What role did possibly being a hippy play in your time in Romania with regard to your book, and especially inter-culturally in a sense?

I wanted to ask you both about CC-4 MIT OpenCourseWare-centric wiki World University and School, which is like Wikipedia in ~300 languages with MIT OCW in its 5 languages, and planned in each of all 7,097 living languages, and my actual-virtual Harbin Hot Springs' ethnographic project re your talk, but the opportunity didn't present itself, so I hope to ask you further about these when we meet again.

Here, by the way, is where you'll find the Romania World University and School - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Nation_States - as well as the Romanian language wiki subject for open teaching and learning - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Languages - planned in Romanian, when they begin.

Julian Dumitrascu in Transylvania / Romania is the named CEO of the WUaS Press / Co as well - https://twitter.com/IuliuDumitrascu/status/1062408823137320961 - and it would be great to talk further about the WUaS Press / Co in Romania and Europe too.

And do you happen to know Nancy Larson (O'Sullivan) - https://iris.reed.edu/directory/alum/121899 - who spent a year, I think, in Bucharest in the early 1980s? (She's a friend from Reed, and I went to Mike and Nancy's wedding at the Quaker Meeting in Portland).

And re your talk, here are two wiki subjects at WUaS, to which, for example, we might add your book -

https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Surveillance

https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Privacy

- to give you an idea about how WUaS works, as well. Check out how MIT OCW which students will be able to take for credit, eventually in all ~200 countries' languages online in group video, and eventually in a realistic virtual earth, to give you an idea of how WUaS works.

Is this you - https://twitter.com/kmverdery1?lang=en?

Am seeking a position in the Stanford Anthropology department, and one book ahead I'm planning to write will compare the STEM innovation ethos at Stanford with that of MIT from the '60s & '70s forward. Might I possibly please talk with you at some point about Stanford in the '70s re its alternative culture aspects especially? As a child of the '60s too (I was born in 1960) - which you introduced yourself as yesterday - I'm particularly interested in the '60s and '70s' in my Harbin ethnographic project, at Stanford, and with regard to its freedom-seeking movements as (counter-)cultural influences in so many ways, in my academic work especially.

Very nice to meet you and looking forward to connecting again at some point.

All the best, Scott

Hi, Scott and Katherine,

It’s nice to hear from you. I recently checked Katherine’s book out of the library, as recent political events have raised memories of living in Bucharest and fears for our democracy. I worked at the American School of Bucharest from December 1981 to June 1982, between my second and third years of Reed.

Katherine, if you are ever in San Diego, I’d love to take you out for dinner or coffee, and if you speak in San Diego I would love to hear your talk. I’d love for more people to know what’s at stake when we edge away from democracy, the rule of law and a commitment to civil rights. 

All the best,
Nancy 




Hi, Nancy and Katherine, 

Thanks so much for your note, Nancy. And likewise, Katherine, if you are ever in the San Francisco Bay area again, I’d love to take you out for dinner or coffee, and if you speak at Berkeley or another university in the SF Bay Area, I would love to hear your talk. World University and Schools is planning to offer online Bachelor, Ph.D., Law, and M.D. degrees, as well as I.B. high school diplomas online, accrediting on MIT OCW - https://ocw.mit.edu/ - and MIT High School - https://ocw.mit.edu/about/media-coverage/press-releases/highlights/ and https://ocw.mit.edu/high-school/. Is the American School in Bucharest I.B. Nancy? 

Concerned here too about democracy, social justice and human rights (see wiki subjects below with MIT OCW) in all ~200 countries and their official and main languages, and am thinking that WUaS will be able to hire the faculty online, hopefully Stanford and Reedie graduate students for example, to teach this as graduate student instructors, to begin.

Thank you again so much, Katherine, for your Stanford talk. 

All the best, 
Scott

Glad to have video conferenced with Ajit Mishra directly after this in West Bengal, India, and about his students, where he has the link to this video recording. He's interested in 'how to join' World University and School for both himself and his students, who are now in many cities in India and south Asia. I mentioned the form here - http://worlduniversityandschool.org - which invites people interested in WUaS to add their names. ...

Hi Chris,

Thank you, Chris - (Scott MacLeod, World University and School here, which is like Wikipedia in 300 languages with CC-4 MIT OCW in 5 languages). CC-4 licensing allows for A) sharing, B) adapting, but C) non-commercially re MIT OCW (Ex. Dir. Cecilia d’Oliveira). Am curious about the ‘adapting’ aspect re MIT OCW. With regard to the CDLA, is adapting of MIT OCW with machine learning, say, hypothetically, via voice technologies (e.g. Google Voice, Siri, Echo ... and especially with machine translation emerging) … a copyright question … and does CC therefore refer to data too … like CDLA’s focus? Thank you for your excellent presentation!

Can you talk a little further about data (re related definitions as 'coding,' or 'material' ... https://ocw.mit.edu/terms/), CDLA and CC-4 licensing (re MIT OCW) -  with regard to data and machine learning, please?

Am curious, hypothetically and brainstorming-wise, (and Jim went to MIT as undergrad), could WUaS use machine translation to "adapt" a MIT OCW course in English into a course in another language, and then subsequently license this with CDLA per your slide 6 - http://cognitive-science.info/community/weekly-update/ ?

Thank you,
Scott

Chris,

Yes, thank you again very much! Here's a Twitter post about this -

https://twitter.com/WorldUnivAndSch/status/1060599146397093888.

Am talking about planned Law Schools at World University and School this morning at 10am Pacific Time in an online live Hangout on Air and re other law questions at WUaS - https://twitter.com/WorldUnivAndSch/status/1061843297025441793 - potentially in conversation, as well. This will get recorded to the WUaS Youtube channel too - youtube.com/WorldUnivandSch.

Here are some of the beginning law schools and law related wiki pages at WUaS ones:

- https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/World_University_Law_School


Law Schools at World University and School (planned in main languages in them)

Afghanistan Law School at WUaS: https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Afghanistan_Law_School_at_WUaS

Brazil Law School at WUaS: https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Brazil_Law_School_at_WUaS

China Law School at WUaS: https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/China_Law_School_at_WUaS

Egypt Law School at WUaS: https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Egypt_Law_School_at_WUaS

India Law School at WUaS: https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/India_Law_School_at_WUaS

Jamaica Law School at WUaS: https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Jamaica_Law_School_at_WUaS

Mexico Law School at WUaS: https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Mexico_Law_School_at_WUaS

World University Law School: https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/World_University_Law_School


And some other related wiki subject pages:

- https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Law
- https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Creative_Commons_Law

Many of these are accessible from - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Subjects

And although I don't do this WUaS daily newspaper, this is an interesting CC chart  -

https://twitter.com/WorldUnivAndSch/status/1061070070389112832 - and this paper lists daily the licensing clarifications that MIT OCW's Exec Dir. Cecilia d'Oliveira asked WUaS to include when we mention MIT OCW, which you can also see on our front page - http://worlduniversityandschool.org/ - in addition to the CC-4 licensing which, per Cecilia, allows for A) sharing, B) adapting, but C) non-commercially. WUaS is seeking to engage CC-0 licensing as well. How WUaS might engage CDLA licensing ahead to complement CC-4 MIT OCW licensing is still unclear to me at this point.

Looking forward to further communication about all of this with time.

Regards,
Scott

My areas of interest include -

Epistemology and Anthropology (I've long asked epistemological questions about anthropology, and continue to do so ... and my new method, ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy (https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/search/label/ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy , is a radical approach to addressing such questions in new ways).

Am interested too in the conversation between western analytic philosophy and eastern philosophy, and this video of David Chalmers, with the Question and Answer at the end with Deepak Chopra and David Chalmers is one beginning point for me in this inquiry

Hamish Henderson was a defining Scottish ethnologist, (a Quaker too, I understand), and one who got to know the "wee folk" and write about them in a way few have done - and as an ethnomusicologist and folklorist made many many recordings with early recording technologies of folk songs, for example. Gary was my advisor at the University of Edinburgh in 2003-2004 in the School of Celtic and Scottish Studies, when I studied the island archipelago off the west coast of Scotland called St. Kilda as nascent online 'place,' and as part of two networks - the internet, and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. This St. Kilda project is a harbinger of my actual-virtual Harbin Hot Springs' project (~ http://tinyurl.com/p62rpcg ~ https://twitter.com/HarbinBook ~ http://bit.ly/HarbinBook ~), as well as a realistic virtual earth and universe, at the cellular and atomic levels too, and for a new social science / humanities' / STEM method I'm calling ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy ... or which Scots in academia might call anew ethno-wiki-virtual-world-ology, since Scots seem to focus on ethnology in lieu of anthropology or ethnography :)

Here by the way is the Scottish_Gaelic_language wiki subject at World Univ & Sch - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Scottish_Gaelic_language - planned in Scots' Gaelic ... along with all of the 7,097 living languages (per Ethnologue) at WUaS, each a wiki subject or school in that language for open teaching and learning - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Languages.

And David Chalmers, philosopher of mind, who gave a  great philosophy talk on the actual and the real (which is a long time ongoing focus of mine - eg https://twitter.com/search?q=%23ActualVirtual&src=typd & https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/search/label/virtual ) at Stanford in May 2017 - and whom I heard too in Edinburgh on Thanksgiving 2003 - gives a version of his actual-real Stanford talk here in December 2017 -

David Chalmers on the virtual and the real


https://youtu.be/QMLojOcOJFI :) I hope somehow we might inquire of him to help please code for actual-virtual physical-digital questions of consciousness (and esp. re all languages), as World University and School seeks to develop a realistic virtual earth with avatar bots, of humans and other species - of individuals as well - for brain and cognitive science and questions of consciousness, and at the cellular and atomic levels.

Want to know about Scottish philosopher, David Hume and his passions -

https://twitter.com/TheOpenBand/status/1050096718438522880? On first glance, The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy touches on this question more than most resources I've found online :)

So hear ye, hear ye, Univ of Edinburgh Professor Gary West will have given the Hamish Henderson Lecture earlier today ... :)

As aye,
Scott
Once upon a time, in a little town called Sheffield, some residents thought they saw a UFO. And now, there's a historical monument commemorating that night. :)

Seeking to see Prof. Gary West's lecture in Google Street View with TIME SLIDER, I went to the Harbin Hot Springs' gate in Google Street View ~ http://tinyurl.com/p62rpcg ~ to get into Street View, clicked the back arrow in the top left to get to Search ...

... and searched on the

Scottish Storytelling Centre, 43-45 High Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1SR
... and found it .... looked at the TIME SLIDER feature to see if I could go back just 1 day to see this talk, but alas, this isn't possible yet ...

... I also searched on this talk in Google, and someone had already posted it to YouTube from yesterday - AMAZING!

Now I'm wondering how I might add this Youtube video to Google Street View re ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy ...

Now how best (with machine learning, especially) to access the recordings of Hamish Henderson in the University of Edinburgh's School of Celtic and Scottish Studies' archives (which may have a new name) ... listen to them online ... and even add them to Google Street View, both from in the archive and in situ? :)
