Universitians, and friends, 

Some news for today's LiveStream - https://www.youtube.com/user/WorldUnivandSch - at 10am PT in about 50 minutes, where it should be possible to join in the side text chat too (but I can't do 2 things at once): 
World Univ and Sch is seeking to reinvent publishing with next Harbin ethnographic book, by printing book to paper from text in the side bar of Google Street View with images / 3D simulations in main part of page ~ http://tinyurl.com/p62rpcg ~ but also publish same book in 3D in brand new digital book form. 

Just was able to update World Univ and Sch website yesterday - http://worlduniversityandschool.org/ - and newly in a secure way so it should be un-hackable now, - and with the WUaS Press's 4th book - http://worlduniversityandschool.org/AcademicPress.html  (scottmacleod.com) also Harbin Hot Springs-centric..

Agenda from open WUaS monthly business meeting on Saturday, February 15, 2020 - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2020/02/keyhole-sand-dollar-agenda-and-minutes.html. Minutes to come (and some in today's LiveStream too).

Hi Ma,

You might find interesting parts of this Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy's article on Habermas' thinking ...

Hi Ma,

Am sympathetic with Habermas's philosophical anthropological thinking in article esp.

L ove, Scott

So true!

Appreciating ... https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/habermas/ ... and esp. ... 

"Habermas's interest in the political subsequently led him to a series of philosophical studies and critical-social analyses that eventually appeared in English in his Toward a Rational Society (1970) and Theory and Practice (1973b). Whereas the latter consists primarily of reflections on the history of philosophy, the former represents an attempt to apply his emerging theory of rationality to the critical analysis of contemporary society, in particular the student protest movement and its institutional target, the authoritarian and technocratic structures that held sway in higher education and politics.
Habermas's critical reflection takes a nuanced approach to both sides of the social unrest that characterized the late sixties. Although sympathetic with students' demand for more democratic participation and hopeful that their activism harbored a potential for positive social transformation, he also did not hesitate to criticize its militant aspects, which he labeled self-delusory and “pernicious” (1970, 48). In his critique of technocracy—governance by scientific experts and bureaucracy—he relied on a philosophical framework that anticipates categories in his later thought, minus the philosophy of language he would work out in the 1970s. Specifically, Habermas sharply distinguished between two modes of action, “work” and “interaction,” which correspond to enduring interests of the human species (ibid., chap. 6). The former includes modes of action based on the rational choice of efficient means, that is, forms of instrumental and strategic action, whereas the latter refers to forms of “communicative action” in which actors coordinate their behaviors on the basis of “consensual norms” (ibid., 91–92). Habermas's distinction in effect appropriates the classical Aristotelian contrast between techne and praxis for critical social theory (1973b, chap. 1). The result is a distinctively Habermasian critique of science and technology as ideology: by reducing practical questions about the good life to technical problems for experts, contemporary elites eliminate the need for public, democratic discussion of values, thereby depoliticizing the population (1970, chap. 6). The legitimate human interest in technical control of nature thus functions as an ideology—a screen that masks the value-laden character of government decision making in the service of the capitalist status quo. Unlike Herbert Marcuse, who regarded that interest as specific to capitalist society, Habermas affirmed the technical control of nature as a genuinely universal species-interest; pace Horkheimer and Adorno in their Dialectic of Enlightenment, the technical interest did not necessitate social domination.
Habermas defended this philosophical anthropology most fully in his Knowledge and Human Interests (1971b; German ed., 1968b), the work that represents his first attempt to provide a systematic framework for an interdisciplinary critical social theory. As Habermas conceived his task, he had to establish critical social theory as a respectable, distinct form of knowledge, in large measure through a methodological critique of the then-dominant positivist philosophy of science and historicist hermeneutics. He thus develops a theory of “knowledge-constitutive interests” that are tied both to “the natural history of the human species” and to “the imperatives of the socio-cultural form of life,” but are not reducible to them (ibid., 168). "
His focus on student movements in the 1960s is fascinating, philosophically, and his books are remarkable resources about this too! - https://twitter.com/jurgenoutfitter - :) 

Love, Scott

Ma,

I only found one reference to Manuel Castells in the Stanford Encyclopedia to Philosophy - https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/globalization/ - and as a Castellian, and with regard to Globalization, about which I've also written academically: 

"For example, there is substantial empirical evidence that cross-border flows and exchanges (of goods, people, information, etc.), as well as the emergence of directly transnational forms of production by means of which a single commodity is manufactured simultaneously in distant corners of the globe, are gaining in prominence (Castells 1996)."

Habermas is also cited in these article: 

"J├╝rgen Habermas, a prominent cosmopolitan-minded theorist, has tried to formulate a defense of the European Union that conceives of it as a key steppingstone towards supranational democracy. If the EU is to help succeed in salvaging the principle of popular sovereignty in a world where the decay of nation state-based democracy makes democracy vulnerable, the EU will need to strengthen its elected representative organs and better guarantee the civil, political, and social and economic rights of all Europeans (Habermas 2001, 58–113; 2009). Representing a novel form of postnational constitutionalism, it potentially offers some broader lessons for those hoping to save democratic constitutionalism under novel global conditions. Despite dire threats to the EU posed by nationalist and populist movements, Habermas and other cosmopolitan-minded intellectuals believe that it can be effectively reformed and preserved (Habermas 2012).

In opposition to Held, Habermas, and other cosmopolitans, skeptics underscore the purportedly utopian character of such proposals, arguing that democratic politics presupposes deep feelings of trust, commitment, and belonging that remain uncommon at the postnational and global levels."

This SEP article is written by Bill Scheuerman who taught at Pitt for some years (https://polisci.indiana.edu/documents/profiles/scheuerman1.pdf and https://intlstudies.indiana.edu/people/faculty/scheuerman-william.html) - and who's most recent book is titled "Civil Disobedience" (sounds like he could be a Quaker too!). Do you happen to know him? 

Love, Scott

[Wikimedia-l] Movement Strategy: Last chance to review the recommendations, next steps
Inbox

to Wikimedia, affiliates, EDs, Internal

Hi everyone,

We’re in week 4 of community conversations about the movement strategy recommendations. Thank you to everyone who has already taken part. The community conversations will continue until Friday, February 21 - you can get involved on Meta[1] in Arabic, English, French, German, Hindi, Spanish, and Portuguese, strategize with your community or organization, or send the core team your feedback to strategy2030@wikimedia.org.

This current round of community conversations is the last opportunity to suggest improvements to the recommendations. They will be finalized before the end of March, and then published for the movement to understand them, reflect on what they mean in their project, local, or thematic context, and move into implementation.

== Movement feedback: what happens next ==
All feedback is being collected, reviewed and analyzed on an ongoing basis. Here are the  next steps after February 21:

* Week commencing February 24: the core team will summarize all the feedback received in a report. You are welcome to continue commenting and discussing during this time, but the discussions will not be as closely facilitated and documented.

* Week commencing March 2: the core team will publish the above report on Meta to give the movement an opportunity to review the content and give feedback as to whether it accurately reflects their input. The closing date for this is March 6. This summary report will then be finalized and published.

In mid-March, the feedback from the Board of Trustees, movement conversations and reviewers' input will be considered in the creation of the final, improved set of recommendations. A rationale for things that have not been considered will be provided, too. Our aim is to have the recommendations finalized and published in late March. More about the actual integration work coming soon.

== Video and podcast about our work; one-pager ==
Members of the core team - Tanveer Hasan, Information and Knowledge Liaison, and Mehrdad Pourzaki, Information and Knowledge Manager - recently held a presentation about all the recommendations at the Wikimedia Foundation All Hands. They provide a quick, concise overview
of every recommendation and also some insight into how each was developed. Video of the presentation [2] and the presentation slides [3] are now on Commons.

Jan Ainali has interviewed me for his podcast Wikipedia Podden. I’m speaking with him about the past, present and future of movement strategy[4].

The one-pager created by Andrew Lih (User:Fuzheado) has been very popular. Again, a big thank you to Andrew for putting this together. In addition to Arabic, English, and Hindi versions, it is now also available in Farsi [5, 6].

== Meeting notes from the office hours  ==
We have published a condensed summary of the meeting notes [7] from the office hours that were held by the core team on Thursday, January 30. The notes provide an overview of the key points and questions that were raised during the two calls as well as summaries of the responses.

== Do you have further questions? ==
Members of the core team will join the upcoming Wikimedia Caf├ę on February 15 [8], which will focus on the movement strategy recommendations. The Wikimedia Caf├ę is a community-led meeting hosted by User:Pine and User:Bluerasberry, and we are happy to take part and help answer any questions people may have about the recommendations. Additionally, if you are looking for more information about any of the above topics or about the movement strategy in general, take a look at
our FAQ section [9].

Happy weekend,
Nicole

to strategy2030, Lydia, Katherine, Stephen, Wikimedia, Nicole, affiliates, EDs, Internal

Thanks for this great plan of action or policy designed to achieve a major or overall aim - regarding the sum of all knowledge. I enjoyed your podcast - https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:WP_72_-_Wikimedia_2030,_a_strategy_interview.mp3#%7B%7Bint%3Afiledesc%7D%7D - in particular. (Seems like in the 'united states of whatebber' per your Twitter photo, Nicole - https://twitter.com/antischokke - that tactics, by way of comparison, have been very significant thus far in the Wikimedia movement).

(In that CC-4 MIT OCW-centric wiki World University & School donated itself to Wikidata in 2015, and received WUaS Miraheze MediaWiki in 2017 as a consequence, am curious if WUaS would be considered an affiliate per these email addressees above, or what?)

I have questions relating mostly to "the sum of all knowledge" goal of Wikipedia -

A) epistemology questions - How does or will Wikimedia / Wikipedia / Wikidata approach academic knowledge, eg in the ~32 departments in MIT OCW, for example, in particular, in this strategizing - and per information technology as a new aspect of knowledge generation?

B) linguistic questions - How will Wikidata approach its ~300 languages in becoming a platform for academic linguistic departments, and regarding the sum of all knowledge (and eventually all 7,111 known living languages)? ... and also regarding the Wikidata lexicographical project.

C) questions, brainstorming and knowledge-wise, about 'ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy' as a new social science and STEM method ... how could Wikipedians and others begin to develop this wiki project in the Wikidata / Wikimedia ecosystem?

D) questions about planning for all 7.5 billion people in first 300 languages, and then in all 7,111 known living languages, as Wikipedia wiki editors, curators, knowledge generators? It seems that these potentially 7.5 billion people on the planet earth are most remarkable as generators of "the sum of knowledge." How is Wikipedia planning for all these 'knowledge generators'?

Thanks,
Scott

Hello Nicole,

The second video seems to be incomplete. There are, for example, several jump cuts, e.g., at 05:07, 11:08, 17:08, 22:31, etc. At 11:14 the presenters invite questions or comments, and at 41:32 someone is clearly being called upon to offer one, but they are not shown in the video. Could you please provide a link to the entire video without cuts, including any questions or comments and the responses to them?

Quite a number of my UCSB graduate student papers looked at questions of epistemology from an anthropological perspective - http://scottmacleod.com/papers.htm (some of which I'd be happy to share with you if interested).

My actual-virtual Harbin Hot Springs' ethnographic book - http://www.scottmacleod.com/ActualVirtualHarbinBook.html - asks related questions about epistemology:

Scott MacLeod's
Naked Harbin Ethnography:                
Hippies, Warm Pools, Counterculture, Clothing-Optionality & Virtual Harbin
Foreword by Nelson H.H. Graburn
UC Berkeley Professor Emeritus of Sociocultural Anthropology

And ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy will develop a whole new series of epistemological questions, I think, too - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/search/label/ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy - especially with regard to the creation of a realistic virtual Harbin / earth for actual-virtual, physical-digital comparison, and in its making. Check out the beginnings of a realistic virtual Harbin here ~ http://tinyurl.com/p62rpcg ~ https://twitter.com/HarbinBook ~ http://bit.ly/HarbinBook ~ and "walk" down the road "4 miles" to "amble" around Middletown, CA.

Am appreciative also of the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy's grounding in some of these questions -
https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/epistemology/ - and particularly re questions of language generation.

Mr. Ikuta:

I've long wondered about epistemology and Wikipedia.

What do you know about it?

Mr. Ikuta:

I mean specifically as it applies to Wikipedia?



*
Yes! ... these questions will inform Wikidata's ontology in multiple ways, that will then inform Wikipedia in all its ~300 languages.

Mr. Ikuta:

Could you be more specific?


*
This could be structured with Wikidata in Wikipedia's ~300 languages in brand new ways, and epistemologically -

Hello,

A brief note to say thanks to Mehrdad and Rupika for their support of the January and/or February Wikimedia Caf├ę events. Also, thanks to volunteers who have been involved in the strategy process for their participation, thanks to User:Fuzheado for the one page summary of the strategy recommendations, and thanks to Nicole for the updates in the February 14th email.

Hello Todd,

Thanks for your question. The video is indeed incomplete. We cut if for the viewer's comfort, as the original version is ~60 mins long, and has questions and interaction with the audience at All Hands. Our main objective for this video was to focus on conveying the broad context and content of each recommendation in a quick and accessible way, without putting too much emphasis on specific recommendations or details.

We'll look into whether the dialogues offer additional clarity. We might also have to identify those who have asked the questions and get their consent to publish. That can take a couple of days, so please stay tuned.

Best wishes,
Nicole

Dear Anant Agarwal (CEO of edX),  

I just applied to this position a second time very succinctly (at Jim Spohrer's suggestion who says hi) - 


Head of Content Strategy & Acquisition at edX
https://boards.greenhouse.io/edx/jobs/1921466
https://www.edx.org/about-us

I've attached, too, my CV, as well as my cover letter. Thank you.

to Larry, Jim

Dear Jim, and Larry,

I came across this video yesterday from edX hiring and talent managers (in this 'Integration Specialist' job opening - https://boards.greenhouse.io/edx/jobs/2018844 - which I won't apply for) -

Libby Bowen - edX Hiring Manager Interview - February 15, 2019 with Rose Sinclair -

https://youtu.be/DHlo8Hf-EMM

- and which is on the edX recruiting channel (which is Rose Sinclair's endeavor I think)

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKrZsc4AQga6nv9XoKhsz_g

and found all of these interviews fascinating. And in one of them, the co-CEO, Adam Medros, was interviewed. I 'LinkedIn' with him per his video edX recruiting video - https://youtu.be/7si3HzgEIxA - and with " - which I enjoyed, & am in communication with Anant Agarwal these days regarding CC-4 MIT OCW-centric wiki World Univ & Sch in ~200 countries' languages & exploring edX collaborations. Best regards, Scott (worlduniversityandschool.org & scottmacleod.com)." And while he looked at my LinkedIn profile this morning, the connection is pending.

After watching these videos, and also recognizing how valuable it would be to be an edX partner / member / collaborator (but their business manager Lee seems to have closed the door on this for WUaS) for licensing with the state of California's BPPE and then for WASC senior accreditation as a platform, it strikes me too that these excellent diverse edX managers in all of these videos (and the entire edX organization too) could be a great platform and infrastructure from which to build and grow World Univ & Sch. How to connect with them in all these regards, I wonder? I think edX's 3 missions, but esp its research mission - https://www.edx.org/about-us "Advance teaching and learning through research" in particular - is perhaps most significant in these regards too. Am keeping my eye on https://www.edx.org/careers but in preparing for WUaS Monthly Business Meeting tomorrow, 2/15/20 - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2020/02/keyhole-sand-dollar-agenda-and-minutes.html - I wonder how to connect further with edX - and especially collaborate with them. Send Adam Medros and Rose Sinclair and Anant Agarwal my two edX job applications again, upon their invitation?

I enjoyed too, Jim, your

"AI and OpenPower" IBM video -
https://youtu.be/4_uQdNtjl60 - and your mentioning Tarun Sainani, who came over to a party at my place with Takeshi Suzuki last October 2019. Am hoping WUaS can develop cognitive assistants in our home robotics' projects with time.

Thanks, Scott

Adam Medros, has moved from the COO position at edX - a real Chief Operating Officer with Dartmouth and Harvard MBA degrees - to co-CEO with Anant now -
