Dear Lydia and Runa,
Thank you for your recent email, Runa (on the WikiMedia languages' engineering team), and your suggestion to begin a conversation with Lydia about what I emailed you, emerging out of a number of Wikitech office hours in IRC in which we participated together:
"In what ways might it be possible to explore beginning a new Wikidata/Wikipedia languages' complementary project with the languages engineering team, namely CC World University and School, which is like CC Wikipedia with CC MIT OCW (planned for 7,106+ languages and 242+ countries)?"
I'm including both Markus Kroetzsch (founder of SemanticWiki and one of three initial core developers of Wikidata/Wikibase) and Magnus Manske (who is Swedish and an expert in Wikidata/Wikibase I think) in this email as possible technical leads for exploring developing this project in SemanticWiki and Wikidata/Wikibase, which could be a significant growth story for WikiMedia and Creative Commons in general, including eventually in terms of job generation worldwide as a far-reaching online CC MIT OCW-centric wiki accrediting University in many languages and countries.
In addition, I hope CC MIT OCW-centric WUaS will be significant in saving, preserving and generating knowledge in all languages (7,106 languages - 287 Wikipedia languages = 6,819+ other languages) as online MIT OCW-centric wiki schools.
Lydia and Runa, in what ways could we begin a exploratory project in, say, four or so languages - e.g. English, German, Swedish and Hindi - around this WUaS "SUBJECT TEMPLATE" - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/SUBJECT_TEMPLATE - and using MediaWiki/qLabel/Wikipedia/Wikicommons/Wikidata/Wikibase/ and especially SemanticWiki framework/platform in the process (http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2014/10/amygdalus-species-language.html), and anticipating artificial intelligence / cognitive computing developments (e.g. http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2014/10/amygdalus-species-language.html)?
Markus, would working with your new research group - https://ddll.inf.tu-dresden.de/ - be a possibility in this too?
Thank you, Runa, for suggesting this conversation with Lydia!
