Jackrabbit (Hare): Stanford Grateful Dead houses ... Stanford sit-ins in the 1970s ... Now how to go to these Stanford happenings, and Harbin, virtually in the 60s and 70s in a virtual earth with time slider?, Stanford course syllabi from the 1970s, Searched on further "Stanford University Harbin Hot Springs Middletown California History," Friendly informed WUaS.... as a kind of wiki CC Internet communalism or Internet commune even

Hi Mary and David,

Found this article on Stanford sit-ins in the 1970s after our talk, Mary, partly about peace activism there and then and re Quakers - (As I mentioned, I was in the Stanford library a few weeks ago looking too for Stanford Harbin Hot Springs' connections and references from the 1960s and 1970s - must be a lot of them ... now to find them!)

Thanks too for mentioning the Stanford Grateful Dead houses ... after Western Friend Meeting rose today ... looked for more information about these online and found (after the Dead video) .. 

Now how to go to these Stanford happenings, and Harbin, virtually in the 60s and 70s in a virtual earth with time slider?

Grateful Dead at WUaS ...

You're welcome, Mary!

Interesting to reply to you above (with "Y.w.") with one of three choices in Gmail's beginning email AI, and also be able to write this as well - as a 4th open-ended option ... a little AI ethnography :) ... kind of emerging with Google out of Google's Stanford & the Dead hippy roots.

I've added to this blog entry - - what's below and some closely related Stanford-Harbin-HumBio 1970s resources from a Stanford library search I did 3 weeks ago.

Thanks for the heads up about Stanford Dead houses and White Plaza sit ins in the 1970s. Reed houses from the 1970s (which were kind of communes too - probably like around the country in the 1960s and 70s where 4 or 5 students, for example, would rent a place together - and these became communes with related culture, or possibly counterculture, ... perhaps with ties to the back to the land movement with its hippy commenes of those decades) have much in common with Stanford Dead houses. I moved into a Reed collective house after my very first semester there in 1980 (having begun at Reed in autumn of 1979).

How can the I.T. machine as it grows further with A.I. become friendly and hippy too (since TCP/IP was written from about 1973-79, and significantly with open-ended RFCs - Request for Comments, too )? ... and not "man against the machine" as it has been through much of modernity, from Iron Bridge gorge and the beginning of the industrial revolution in the British Isles in the 1730s (a de-inspiration for Blake's "dark and Satanic mills")  ...

As a fan of Google in general (thanks Peter Norvig, director of Google research and a kind of hippy programner, partly because he's senior there, and remembers, and more so perhaps than many at Google, which also has Burning Man, Stanford and Berkeley roots), I'm seeking to help to co-generate / facilitate further a F/friendly web and with Friendly informed WUaS.... as a kind of wiki CC Internet communalism or Internet commune even :) ... not sure about WUaS as an expression of Elias Hick's the peaceable kingdom (and many other Quakers) ... but maybe in a Google Street View /OpenSim with time slider where we can all add our own photos and eventually videos and research in all 8k languages; Harbin isn't really a Quaker peaceable kingdom vision, but it is a hippy to the hot springs' alternative peaceable vision.

Friendly cheers, Scott

Hi Andre, 

Nice to meet and thanks for the coffee.

After we talked, I went to look for the book I mentioned to you by a very well known Stanford Biology Professor, who taught a famous Stanford biology course, in the bookstore (which book didn't have an index when I looked at it about a 6 months to a year ago) ... but only found academic hoods for graduation where the book was. The famous Stanford biology professor of this Stanford Bio course, which may have had a big possible focus on sexuality in an unique Stanford way, had a name something like Khachatourian, but this isn't exactly right, and he may have been originally from Lebanon or similar. I wonder if we could find the syllabi and records of this course in the Stanford libraries from the 1960s and 1970s, as well as this book. 

The book "Harvard Psychedelic Club" (2010) written by Don Lattin, the former religion writer for the SF Chronicle, focuses on 4 key experimenters, and there's an interesting focus on some of these people while traveling in Switzerland. 

I'm curious to explore too a Stanford-Harbin Hot Springs connection in the Stanford libraries/archives. 
I'm planning to head to Stanford today to do some library work. If you're on campus today, would you like to meet for another coffee? 

Best, Scott
