Hi Scott,
It’s Tanya!

Pi is a new digital currency being developed by a group of Stanford PhDs. For a limited time, you can join the beta to earn Pi and help grow the network. To join Pi, follow this link https://minepi.com/tanyatomato and use my username (tanyatomato) as your invitation code.

Hi Tanya,

Thanks so much for your Mine Pi invitation to me -

https://youtu.be/MsOaC61cR3U. And how are you? And where are you with World University and School coursework toward your Bachelor degree? As you may have noticed in the WUaS Agenda & News, WUaS is seeking funding for CA's BPPE for licensing. It would be great to explore doing this through a cryptocurrency even, but I don't think either the state of California's BPPE or WUaS is ready for this. And how did you learn of Mine Pi?

That said, and per WUaS Agenda and News re WUaS seeking to facilitate a single digital currency via UBI experiments, this Mine Pi cryptocurrency is interesting with its Stanford PhD and California origins, and re UBIcs.org (UBI catalyst systems . org) which I just learned of too - for infrastructure and as idea re distribution of single cryptocurrency via UBI.

I'd like to learn more about MINE Pi. Brainstorming-wise, building on the state of California's Stockton Basic Income experiment ($500/month over 18 months to 130 adults - with studying academically its effects) - https://amp.sacbee.com/news/local/article226280230.html & https://time.com/5667715/stockton-california-universal-basic-income/ (picture of bank card re distribution), in what ways could WUaS collaborate with Mine Pi and the state of California to make this become a single cryptocurrency in a large number or percentage of 200 countries' languages (backed by their central banks, a little like the 19/28 Eurozone countries & their central banks in Brussels in the European Union) and through universal basic income experiments?

Would Stockton UBI experiment recipients be able to 'mine' a cryptocurrency on their smartphone like MAKING A WITHDRAWAL from a bank? Am curious what mining entails in the 'Mine Pi' App - and also for computer scientists' algorithm-wise. And what it could mean for Stockton residents - IF they had smart phones, and could get their CA basic income from the state of CA in Sacramento (legally too - like central bank approval / authority) that way.

I may explore teaching about both this Mine Pi as example of cryptocurrency, as well as Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning newly in my "Society, Information Technology, and the Global University" - http://worlduniversityandschool.org/InfoTechNetworkSocGlobalUniv.html - next year in 2020.

I'll seek to bring up Mine Pi per the WUaS Agenda tomorrow - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/09/xerochrysum-bracteatum-agenda-news-for.html.

Thanks so much, Tanya, and will check it out further with your name code,
Scott

Here are the Mine Pi FAQs ...
https://minepi.com/faq


This is how it works, and even re above hypothetical Stockton, California, UBI recipients receiving their basic income experiment in the form of a cryptocurrency like Mine Pi ... "hit the lightning button" ...

"How does this app work? How do I earn more Pi?
This app allows you to earn Pi by making simple contributions to Pi’s community. The more you contribute, the more Pi you earn. Read less ...
To start earning Pi, check in every 24 hours and hit the lightning button to start mining. Once you are mining, you can boost your hourly rate by inviting trusted friends and family to join the community. After 3 days of mining, you can boost your earnings more by building your security circle, which contributes to the overall security of the network. Keep in mind, earlier members of the network mine at a higher rate than those that come after them. ..."

Hi Darlene,

Thanks for your email, gmail, and nice to talk with you at Reed College's FAR. Per what we discussed (single cryptocurrency backed by some number of countries' central banks distributed via UBI experiments planning conceptually for all 7.5 billion people on planet, each a Wikidata Q-item number), a student in the first matriculating class at MIT OCW-centric World University and School just emailed me the following invitation to Mine Pi, a new cryptocurrency one can mine. I blogged about all of this here today - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/09/aquatic-plant-mine-pi-from-faqs-what-is.html - and thought you might be interested. How would questions of law in Oregon, and Washington (where your licensed to practice law), for example, eventually play out? And in Poland and Russia too? And in the US? Let's stay in touch about all of this. 

Very nice to meet you at Reed FAR.

Best, Scott

[Wikidata] Personal news: a new role


Denny Vrandečić vrandecic@google.com via lists.wikimedia.org
Thu, Sep 19, 9:57 AM (1 day ago)
to Discussion

Hello all,

Over the last few years, more and more research teams all around the world have started to use Wikidata. Wikidata is becoming a fundamental resource [1]. That is also true for research at Google. One advantage of using Wikidata as a research resource is that it is available to everyone. Results can be reproduced and validated externally. Yay!

I had used my 20% time to support such teams. The requests became more frequent, and now I am moving to a new role in Google Research, akin to a Wikimedian in Residence [2]: my role is to promote understanding of the Wikimedia projects within Google, work with Googlers to share more resources with the Wikimedia communities, and to facilitate the improvement of Wikimedia content by the Wikimedia communities, all with a strong focus on Wikidata.

One deeply satisfying thing for me is that the goals of my new role and the goals of the communities are so well aligned: it is really about improving the coverage and quality of the content, and about pushing the projects closer towards letting everyone share in the sum of all knowledge.

Expect to see more from me again - there are already a number of fun ideas in the pipeline, and I am looking forward to see them get out of the gates! I am looking forward to hearing your ideas and suggestions, and to continue contributing to the Wikimedia goals.

Cheers,
Denny

P.S.: Which also means, incidentally, that my 20% time is opening for new shenanigans [3].

Dear Denny Vrandecic,

Hearty congratulations on your new role at Google. Am excited too that Wikimedia and Google are growing collaborations via this great development. And thanks so much for founding Wikidata! 

Will explore in CC-4 MIT OpenCourseWare-centric wiki World University and School's monthly business meeting tomorrow, brainstorming-wise, a Wikidata Q-item for each of all 7.5 billion people on planet earth, in 3 ways: 


1) Facilitating a single cryptocurrency with blockchain, distributed potentially via Universal Basic Income (UBI) experiments (partly to alleviate poverty)

2) 'Avatar bot electronic medical records' for all 7.5 billion people.

3) Free-to-students' highest quality universal education with online major MIT OCW_centric universities in ~200 countries' main languages, and wiki schools for open teaching in each of all 7,111 known living languages (plus wiki schools for all extinct languages as well)


Thank you!

Best regards, Scott

to Lydia, Denny, Peter, Larry, Stephen, Katherine, Léa


Thanks Léa for your email, and glad to learn who's moderating these.

As you may know, wiki World University and School donated WUaS to Wikidata for co-development in 2015, and received WUaS Miraheze MediaWiki in 2017, but they're not yet interoperable. Per my previous email to Denny, Lydia, Peter Norvig and Larry Viehland (chair of the WUaS Board), WUaS is seeking to plan coding-wise for 7.5 billion people each a Wikidata Q-item for wiki teachers and learners in all 7,111 known living languages re https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/You_at_World_University (where this is WUaS Miraheze MediaWiki). See, too - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/09/aquatic-plant-mine-pi-from-faqs-what-is.html.

Glad too to be in communication with you as Wikidata Project Manager Community Communication for Wikidata Wikimedia Deutschland - https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Lea_Lacroix_(WMDE).

Will bring up these communications in wiki CC-4 MIT OCW-centric World University and School's open monthly business meeting tomorrow. WUaS seeks to be a growth story for the internet and the Wiki Movement as well - in creating major online MIT OCW-centric universities in ~200 countries official / main languages, with parallel educational services' stores in all 7,111 living languages. WUaS also seeks to hire 2.2 million people (as big as Walmart) in all 200 countries in the process (on both wings). And WUaS has created 2 parallel legal entities in the state of California and the US for this (https://worlduniversityandschool.blogspot.com/2016/01/14-planned-wuas-revenue-streams.html). 

Thanks so much for your email, Léa. Besides with you as Communication Project Manager, how best to further communicate about all of this with Wikidata, as well as the Wikimedia movement? 

Best, Scott

Xerochrysum bracteatum: Agenda & News for 21 Sep 2019 World Univ & Sch's open Monthly Business Meeting


Dear Universitians & friends,

Thank you for your support of World Univ & Sch. WUaS is planning to send out the financial reports for A) World University and School, and for the B) WUaS Corporation for August with the Minutes.

Please join us at our open (hour-long) World Univ & Sch @WorldUnivAndSch monthly business meeting (loosely in the manner of Friends/Quakers) this Saturday, September 21, 2019 , at 9 am Pacific Time, 12 noon ET (and from other time zones like in Asia, Africa and Europe), electronically, in Google Meet; email info@worlduniversityandschool.org if interested in joining!


Agenda and News - 

1
World University and School continues to seek funding for beginning licensing with the state of California's BPPE (and annually after this), and re our 2nd online matriculating undergraduate program in 2020 - http://worlduniversityandschool.org


2
World University and School has inquired with incoming President of Shady Side Academy (high school in Pittsburgh PA), Bartley Griffith, about giving a talk about free-to-students' online CC-4 MIT OCW-centric World University & School's Bachelor degrees at SSA - for the benefit of Shady Side students in 2020. Were SSA to help focus what SSA students might benefit from in the first year of online College at WUaS, it would improve The College at WUaS significantly - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/The_College_at_World_University_and_School. WUaS would also seek to converse further with SSA about WUaS planned online High Schools - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/WUaS_International_Baccalaureate_Diploma_and_Programme - in many countries' languages. See - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/09/dolly-sods-wilderness-shady-side.html.


3
After recent trip to Reed College's FAR (Forum for Advancing Reed), how to begin an online Oregon Law School at World Univ & Sch, similar to planning for an online Law School at World Univ & Sch - exploring accreditation with CalBar - as well as the online Iran Law School at World University and School in Persian, building from Persian MIT OpenCourseWare (now archived). See again: https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/09/saffron-how-to-begin-iran-law-school-at.html


4
Facilitating a single cryptocurrency with blockchain, distributed potentially via Universal Basic Income (UBI) experiments (partly to alleviate poverty)

In planning for 7.5 billion people, WUaS also seeks to explore facilitating a single cryptocurrency with blockchain ledger backed by some number of ~200 countries' central banks (think what comes post-dollar, or after the Euro in 19 out of 28 Eurozone countries) and distributed potentially via Universal Basic Income (UBI) experiments (partly to alleviate poverty, and partly to plan for offsetting job loss due to automation, technology advances and robotics etc). All of this would have many implications for the FDA re insurance companies, big Pharma, the US government, etc. - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/09/shoaling-and-schooling-stanford-center.html


5
 'Avatar bot electronic medical records' for all 7.5 billion people.

And beyond the implications of 7.5 billion people re online clinical trials, conceptually, and re a single digital cryptocurrency, with coding, rules and regulations shared by some number of ~200 countries' central banks, World University and School also at this key moment of connecting or coding our "front end" with our "back end" would like to plan for 'avatar bot electronic medical or health records' for all 7.5 billion people. Think EPIC into 3D VR health records as electronic medical records for an integrated video record of all surgeries, for example, plus so much more - and see - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/04/flower-mantises-hymenopus-coronatus.html - all of which could have innumerable implications for the FDA, especially if they emerged in some ways out of Alphabet / Stanford / Duke's Project Baseline data developments. - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/09/shoaling-and-schooling-stanford-center.html


6
Free-to-students' highest quality universal education

And, conceptually, and re the generation of university-centralization on the Internet in ways that might benefit you in your role as FDA Commissioner, WUaS donated ourselves to Wikidata / Wikibase in 2015 as a "back end" database in its ~300 languages, and received as a consequence our "front end" WUaS Miraheze MediaWiki in 2017, but these aren't interoperable yet. At this key moment of bringing these together, WUaS seeks to code for matriculated students in all ~200 countries' languages, and wiki-Universitians not only in Wikidata's 300 languages but also in all 7,111 known living languages - and then for all 7.5 billion people on the planet - as wiki teachers and learners, each a Wikidata Q-item, which is Wikidata's key identifier. In planning for all 7.5 billion people as wiki teachers and learners, WUaS seeks too to create free-to-students' highest quality universal education (MIT OCW-centric+). And large numbers of these people in the US and overseas could be involved in online clinical trials, and in many many other aspects of FDA processes, and re generating a kind of university-centralization re the global internet too.


7
WUaS is seeking for the above to emerge from 7.5 billion people, each a Wikidata Q item, and in a Google-centric coding environment - as well as in a single realistic virtual earth for online WUaS Medical Schools, teaching hospitals, and especially for IT management developments:

Shady Side Academy ~ Homecoming (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania high school)

Scott MacLeod sgkmacleod@worlduniversityandschool.org

12:21 PM (33 minutes ago)
to presidentCatherine, bcc: Larry, bcc: Janie
Dear President Griffith, 

Congratulations on your new Presidency at Shady Side Academy. 

I enjoyed your video here -

I just emailed Catherine Vodrey '78 (and Sid Mazumdar '78 too) to see if she'd be at the SSA Homecoming this year (Sat. 12 Oct weekend), but Catherine won't, writing that she knows you: "Bart is a good guy who served on the BOV with me for years. I think it's cool that he's the first prez who's also an alum"). I haven't heard back from Sid yet (who was basically my best friend at SSA) - and I just visited with Catherine in her home over the Christmas holiday in 2018, as well as stayed with Sid in Baltimore during that break.  

While I just sent an invitation to you, President Griffith, to connect on LinkedIn, mentioning exploring coming to SSA Homecoming myself, I'm curious about the possibility of giving a talk about MIT OCW-centric World Univ & Sch over the 12th of October weekend as an alum, - as its founder and president (and a professor there). Since I spent a year in Scotland at Fettes College between my junior and senior year, this is my 40th Reunion

World University and School seeks to offer online free-to-students' licensing (BPPE) and accrediting (WASC) online Bachelor (and PH.D., Law and M.D. degrees). And WUaS is currently seeking our 2nd matriculating undergraduate class for 2020, as we begin the BPPE licensing process. World Univ & Sch should be an excellent opportunity for SSA graduates interested in highest quality online education (in that WUaS seeks to become the Harvard / MIT / Stanford / Oxbridge of the Internet). How might we best explore communicating about my giving a talk during SSA Homecoming? Thank you.

And very best wishes on your upcoming Presidency! 

Regards, Scott

to president, jscott, Janie, Catherine, bcc: Larry

Dear President Griffith (and Catherine),

I'm writing to follow up with with my CV: https://goo.gl/JZheSb (accessible from http://scottmacleod.com/papers.htm).

And are you possibly related to SSA Dean David Griffith? (He was a Dean when I attended). I enjoyed too this SSA Board of Visitors' video - https://youtu.be/96bRBBECReU with you and Kerry Hannon in it (where Kerry Hannon and I were also in the same class, and if I remember correctly were in the same English class with Mr. Gregory). And Catherine Vodrey ' 81 said both you and she have been on the SSA BOV committee; were you in the audience during this panel, Catherine? (It appears too that in LinkedIn per my invitation, both Catherine and Jamie above too are connected to both of us). I'm also writing to inquire if I might volunteer on the SSA Board of Visitor's committee (while living in the SF Bay Area)?

And would it be possible to explore giving a talk at SSA about free-to-students' online MIT OCW-centric World University and School degree opportunities for Shady Siders in 2020? However, in just talking with my mother who lives in Pittsburgh, this could not occur at this Homecoming on the 12 October weekend, since it's not a good time for her to have visitors. And to re-iterate what Kerry Hannon says in the video, like her, I also am seeking or need to make a difference in people's lives, and especially in Shady Siders' lives (per Kerry at the 10 minute mark) with free-to-students' CC-4 MIT OCW-centric World Univ & Sch degrees - worlduniversityandschool.org.

Again, World University and School seeks to offer online free-to-students' licensing (BPPE) and accrediting (WASC) online Bachelor (and PH.D., Law and M.D. degrees). And WUaS is currently seeking our 2nd matriculating undergraduate class for 2020, as we begin the state of California's BPPE licensing process. World Univ & Sch should be an excellent opportunity for SSA graduates, and alumni too, interested in highest quality online education newly from home (in that WUaS seeks to become the Harvard / MIT / Stanford / Oxbridge of the Internet).

How might we best explore my A) volunteering at on the Shady Side Academy BOV committee, and B) giving a talk at SSA about online World Univ & Sch - and possibly on a panel like the BOV panel above, sometime in the upcoming months? Thank you.

And very best wishes for your upcoming Presidency!

Best regards, Scott

to Shahrzad, Dorna

Will do, thanks, Dorna!

Thanks again for your excellent presentation. I'd like to introduce you to one another here and with regards to World Univ & Sch's Persian projects. Shahrzad is from Tehran, and has a PhD from UC Berkeley, in Architecture - https://www.linkedin.com/in/shahrzad-shirvani-981a6959/ - and Dorna is a lawyer working in legal technology, and has Persian background - https://www.linkedin.com/in/documentautomation/.

Best, Scott

Hi Dorna, and Shahrzad, 

Sounds good, and thanks for your email, Dorna; and thanks for your engagement and energy especially. One idea in these regards would be to contact Wikimedian / Wikipedian Wikidata programmer Amir Ladsgroup, who lives in Berlin I think, but is from Tehran and an Iranian, and whom I introduced to Shahrzad a few years ago (in September 2015), and to explore the following possibilities: 

1) Develop the wiki Iran Law School at World University & School like - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/World_University_Law_School (see related WUaS Law School examples planned in countries' languages below) - and translate the section headings into Persian (e.g. you Dorna and Shahrzad), 

2) connect this new Iran Law School at WUaS's wiki page "front end" with our WUaS Wikidata/Wikibase structured knowledge database "back end" (in Wikipedia's 300 languages) with Amir Ladsgroup Sarabadani's help (and as a very very first step of making our WUaS Miraheze MediaWiki "front end" interoperable with our WUaS Wikidata / Wikibase and planned in all ~300 languages;

3) Beyond this being wiki accessible, and in Persian, focus on law accessibility design questions (e.g. you Dorna) further developing the above Law Schools at WUaS's perhaps with the English language WU Law School wiki page as a Template, or the upcoming Iran Law School at WUaS in Persian as a template which could then be used as an improved TEMPLATE for all ~200 countries' online law schools at WUaS in their main languages. 

4) Begin to explore adding law school courseware in Persian at the top of this accessible wiki Law School at Iran page, which might eventually be offered online for credit to interested Persian speakers (in Iran and abroad). This is the archived Persian MIT OCW -  http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/translated-courses/persian/ - and since MIT doesn't have a law school, WUaS is seeking to create online Law OpenCourseWare, possibly CC-4 (Creative Commons' 4 licensed, like MIT OCW) for further accessibility, and then offer this for credit. 

Shahrzad, do you think you might have a little time to explore some related questions to all of this (and even re becoming a faculty member at WUaS in Persian in these regards with time as well)? And how best might we explore talking further about this? 

Best regards, 
Scott

Just searched on:

While a 2012 article from US News by Brian Burnsed said there were 12 online law schools but not having passed the California Bar, accessible from - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/World_University_Law_School

today's search yielded -
https://www.calbar.ca.gov/Admissions/Law-School-Regulation/Law-Schools - which says there are 5, and are called "Registered unaccredited distance learning law schools" -


'Registered unaccredited distance learning law schools in California'

The following institutions are currently registered by the State Bar's Committee of Bar Examiners as unaccredited distance-learning law schools. A distance-learning law school is a law school that conducts instruction and provides interactive classes principally by technological means. A distance-learning law school must require at least 864 hours of preparation and study per year for four years.
