Yes, sounds good, I'll facilitate the "Western Friend" Thursday Noontime Meeting online in the WF Family Room - http://us4.campaign-archive2.com/?u=0f903ecd7fe40d2cc1c8380a3&id=263a3c88b2&e=002edc1fb4 - in Zoom on 5/12, from 11:30 to 12:30, and possibly see you online the evening before also in the WF Family Room for the presentation on "Benefits and Dangers (to Friends) of Electronic Communications" too.
It would be great too to explore connecting with Western Friends about Friendly-informed World University and School seeking online high school applicants this autumn. I'm just about to re-vamp our web site - http://
worlduniversityandschool.org/ - newly in Google, hopefully, with 17 year olds in mind - for free CC MIT OCW-centric degrees (but we can't promote WUaS with the MIT name, and are rather using "best STEM-centric CC OCW" instead at times) and CC Yale OYC-centric degrees. And this spring, WUaS in a lengthy correspondence with MIT Dean of Online Learning Cecilia d'Oliveira (and former executive director of CC MIT OCW) clarified ways in which CC WUaS can both "share" and "adapt" CC MIT OCW in 7 languages (and ways in which we can't commercialize this on WUaS's CC Core non-profit side - since WUaS, in a Berkeley Law course this spring, is planning also a commercial side).
Could the online WF Family Room become the online home base for Quaker students enrolled at World University and School, I wonder? :)
Looking forward to being in touch this week.
As a followup and in a slightly different vein, I recently searched for "Stanford University Quakers" and found this -https://stanford.edu/group/
quakers/ - interesting. This web site says they're looking for a Stanford student to re-convene this, and that Talley from Palo Alto Friends Meeting is the contact person.
I've been thinking recently how great it would be to hold a Friends' Meeting in room 307 in the Stanford History department, in the front left corner of the Quad, or a similarly beautiful room there with more green outside. (This would be an unprogrammed Meeting in the care of PA Friends Meeting, and I'm a non theistically f/Friendly-inclined).
While I published my Harbin ethnographic book - http://www.scottmacleod.com/
ActualVirtualHarbinBook.html - a few weeks ago in GDocs as announced by UC Berkeley Professor Nelson Graburn at a TSWG meeting in the Gifford room in the Anthropology department at Cal, and about 10 people have the link to this, I still have to finish the indexand get it to paper ... I hope to bring paper copies of my 550 page book back as gifts to Massachusetts where I'm playing my Scottish small pipes at a memorial in June! (Indexing is not fun, but it does further improve the book's quality).
How are you in general?
While yesterday, I last indexed alphabetically "California" in my Harbin ethnographic book, I have a little way to go still - 24 letters in the alphabet more in an index with a fair number of words.
Re a Reed College German Professor's tweets that I read some - e.g. https://twitter.com/janmpdx/
This bibliographic example of value creation (somewhat ironically given Marx's critiques) in a single title example could well bode well since creating a new Academic Press at WUaS will also further make for a very interesting first "Naked Harbin Ethnography" edition.
I just learned today that Harvard education Professor Karen Brennan will be present tomorrow at the Exploratorium museum in SF for the 3 hour Scratch Programming Meetup, I'm glad to say.
