New "Practicing - Playing a Musical Instrument" at WUaS : http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Practicing_-_Playing_a_Musical_Instrument ... for sharing ideas about practicing / playing, particularly to make practicing fun ... (also here at the WU Music School: http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University_Music_School) ... heading to practice ... :)
Here's the iPhone as Musical Instrument wiki, subject at WUaS - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/IPhone_as_musical_instrument - with an invitation to teach, learn, add, create, play and make music, in memory of Steve.
What a long strange trip it's been, thanks to Steve.
Check out the great Steeleye Span on this WUaS "Folk rock music" wiki page - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Folk_rock_music -
Add your favorites :)
... make music here now via this page (as this develops) ...
Two, new MIT OCW 'Harmony' courses added to WUaS's "Singing Harmony" subject - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Singing_Harmony ... Let's bring these alive and make them fun, articulating them in new ways with the internet ...
would like to learn to sing harmony like Martin Carthy here -

MM: Classic Seeleye. And visually, a real period piece....
Dan Kottke, on World University & School's Board, is mentioned in this lead New York Time's article about Steve Jobs, as having traveled to India with him in the mid-1970s - http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/06/business/steve-jobs-of-apple-dies-at-56.html?pagewanted=all ... And both went to Reed :)
Harvard's Woodberry Poetry Room Online - http://hcl.harvard.edu/poetryroom/ - WONDERFUL archive accessible from your computer ... World University & School added these to its "Poetry" - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Poetry - and "Library Resources" - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Library_Resources - wiki subjects
Here's the Media Lab at World Univ & Sch - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Media_Lab_at_World_University_and_School - which is in its infancy ...
How would an Internet-centric Media Lab at WUaS look, building on the MIT Media Lab?
(Here's a MIT Media Lab Talk happening now http://www.media.mit.edu/events/medialabtalk/live.html - #MediaLabTalk - http://twitter.com/#!/search?q=%23MediaLabTalk).
I'd like to suggest that all of MIT and all of World Univ & Sch are Media Labs themselves.
Nick Negroponte - HOW TO ACHIEVE UNIVERSAL PRIMARY EDUCATION FOR ALL, IN ONE YEAR: SOLVING THE PROBLEM OF 70 MILLION CHILDREN WORLDWIDE NOT EVEN REACHING FIRST GRADE - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WrwQ5b0cy8 & WUaS's OLPC page - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/One_Laptop_per_Child_-_XO_Laptop_-_$100_Laptop_-_MIT - which is wiki
And here's the World Univ & Sch's Languages' page - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Languages - WUaS is potentially in ALL 3000-8000 languages ... as wiki
U.S. Jobs' Bill - http://mobile.nytimes.com/article?a=851104 - and World Univ & Sch wants to create a LOT of U.S. academic jobs, in all languages - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Languages - NYC has around least 800 languages in a very small geographical area (see /Languages' page for NYTs article about this).
WUaS will create so many jobs!
Endless possibilities for open, free, teaching, learning and creating at World Univ & Sch, and eventually with degrees, accrediting on MIT OCW ... http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Subjects ... with an invitation to edit this page, or learn or create what you'd like ...
I hope the WUaS Universal Translator will be somewhat wiki (editable), and so in various versions of languages (3,000-8,000 - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Languages), and that it will grow and develop with time (building on Google Translate and Sugar Labs' Translate).
Universities can be very creative places, with high-minded conversation and innovations with ideas (and many other things, as well, of course). WUaS would like to remain open, as wiki.
I hope various languages and countries will apply to WUaS, for languages and schools, in a way similar to the UNESCO World Heritage process.
Dear Reed College Magazine,
Here are a lot of links to recent pieces about Steve Jobs - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2011/10/wild-apple-to-apple-in-memory-of-steve.html - in a recent blog entry, including an email I sent to Apple a few days ago. I just added your Reed Magazine "Think Different" piece - http://blogs.reed.edu/reed_magazine/2011/10/think-different.html - to the above entry, as well. Thanks for this!
As I said in this email to Apple, I hope his inspiration and vision can richly inform the growth of World University and School, (like Wikipedia with MIT Open Course Ware). Here's the WUaS's iPhone as Musical Instrument wiki, subject at WUaS - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/IPhone_as_musical_instrument - with an invitation to teach, learn, add, create, play and make music, in memory of Steve. (And the wiki World University Music School is one way to access this and other musical instruments + ... http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University_Music_School).
In memory of Steve,
Nice, free, "Acoustic Blues Radio" at Pandora - http://www.pandora.com/#!/stations/play/646022991862016453 - may add this station to the Blues - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Blues - and the Blues' Singing subjects at WUAS - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Blues_Singing (all in the WU Music School - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University_Music_School) - with an invitation to sing and play along, and to 'edit this page' :)
