Rivers: Moving WUaS from Wikia to MediaWiki, like Wikipedia ... Main WUaS wiki pages, planned for all 7,870 + languages, 242 + countries and regions - SUBJECT TEMPLATE, WUaS Courses, Subjects, Languages, Library Resources, Nation States, You at World University, Educational Software, Museums, Research, Hardware Resource Possibilities, FAQs, World University Foundation, WUaS Universal Translator will become a way to generate languages, WUaS technical lead directions and the semantic web, artificial intelligence and IBM Watson and BlueMix?, Code Across Hackathon February 22, 2015

Hi Logan,

I'm glad you emailed, and thanks. 

In terms of potentially installing MediaWiki on Wednesday, and the first pages WUaS would like to add, in this move from our current Wikia to MediaWiki, they would be the following main wiki pages which you'll find here - http://worlduniversityandschool.org/ - including: 

Frequently Asked Questions at World University & School: http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Frequently_Asked_Questions 

and these templates - 

Look through these main WUaS wiki pages to get a sense of this project. 

I would also be interested in us getting access to a copy of the Dreamweaver web page design program to develop this WUaS main page further - http://worlduniversityandschool.org/ .

In the process of all of this, WUaS would like to anticipate an extensive database for the "Admissions Department at WUaS" - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Admissions_at_World_University_and_School#World_University_and_School_Links - and "You at WUaS" (see above) and ultimately and importantly moving to CC Wikidata / Wikibase, a CC interlingual database written for CC Wikipedia's 288 languages. 

With all of this said, - which is a lot! - what focusing questions might you have? 

The goal I think for Wednesday though is to get MediaWiki installed and working, and perhaps also with templates - while anticipating developing in Wikidata/Wikibase / Semantic Wiki / and especially WikiCommons, and inter-lingually eventually with machine learning. 

See you Wednesday!

Hi Scott,

I was hoping you could direct me to some project resources about World University that I could look at before Wednesday? That way I have something a little more in depth to chat with you about. Thanks!

See, too:



Co-evolution: Location, location, location ... GREAT here on the screen in front of you for World University and School, a best STEM centric, multilingual, online University which is also a wiki ... WUaS Universal Translator will become a way to generate languages, and for learning them, how the CC WUaS Universal Translator will articulate with a commercial Universal Translator for WUaS's online bookstore

Hello Logan, 

Very nice to meet you last Wednesday at the Hackathon in SF, and looking forward to seeing you this Wednesday! 

A friend from the Quaker Meeting down the street who also has a degree in Computer Science (from Haverford) may also come and, if he does, perhaps we can all explore installing MediaWiki together - https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Installation_guide. WUaS has the server space here - http://worlduniversityandschool.org/ - for this. 

Please bring friends along who might be interested in developing World University and School.

Great to meet you, and thanks for your skillful coding, organization and energy yesterday at Code Across and as a key data person for the city of SF. 

Hoping to come to the Hackathon this Wednesday at 6:30 and explore beginning World University and School in MediaWiki / Wikidata (anticipating A.I. machine learning and an universal translator, as well). 

It would be great to begin the multi-lingual aspect of this, for example, in Korean (with Byeong Seo Seon), German (Max) and Mandarin Chinese (Bonnie), whom I met yesterday, and others, on Wednesday, as well, if possibly. 

All-languages WUaS itself will become a far-reaching digital synchronous city per your - https://twitter.com/synchronouscity :)

Best regards and thank you!
