Dear Jeanne (in Oxford), Ruth, Catherine and Tania, and Non-theist Friends,

Thanks again for suggesting contacting Quaker Members of Parliament, Jeanne, re World Univ & Sch in the British Isles - and for Quaker students too. I'm meeting online with Wikidata coders next week, and hopefully World University and School will integrate our new "front end" Friendly-informed WUaS Miraheze Mediawiki with the "backend" structured knowledge Wikidata database soon thereafter, so that we'll have a workable online "Oxbridge" / Haverford / Swarthmore / Harvard / Stanford platform (in Google Education too) for online free-to-students CC-4 MIT OCW-centric courses and degrees ...

to be taken in some of the academic subjects here -

See, too -
- (planned online in ~200 countries' official languages, paralleling Wikipedia)

Here are their contacts -

(and re Scotland WUaS - More about this here - - with many related World Univ & Sch ideas in the "global university" label).

World Univ & Sch will continue to remain wiki open - for open teaching and learning - and related creativity, e.g. about NtFs.

Friendly greetings from the SF Bay Area,


The above Meeting WorldUniversity email address is Friendly-oriented.

THANKS, Jean, and NtFs!

Quaker Members of Parliament seem few and far between, and connecting with them re online (Nt)Friendly-informed World University and School in the British Isles, could be a great boon.

Friendly regards,

I was hoping someone else would answer.  I don't have advice beyond the obvious:  all these MPs have websites or contact details which can be found by googling, I'm sure.  I haven't contacted any of them up to now.
Best wishes,

Subject: [NTF-talk] NtFs, Cadbury, Quakers, the British Isles and online free MIT OCW education
Hi Jeanne, David and British NtFs, (and NtFs),

I'm interested in reaching out to the 3 Quaker MPs in Britain - Ruth Cadbury, Catherine West, and Tania Mathias - and re offering free online Friendly-informed World University and School for free online degrees (and with open wiki schools) to British in English (and other languages too, for those who might be interested there). Any suggestions on how best to do so?

World University and School is like Wikipedia with MIT OCW.

Our MIT OpenCourseWare-centricity will allow for both an excellent engineering focus (and STEM) but also a very broad academic focus, with MIT's departments as the model for our first majors. (All of MIT's School of Management/Business courses are online too under the the MIT OCW Creative Commons (CC-4) license).

The ~720 WUaS Wikia wiki pages here - e.g. - are the template for
this as we begin to move into our new great wiki platform here - - where each of these ~200 countries - will
become major universities (Stanfords/Harvards/MITs/Cambridges) in
their official / main languages, with Wikipedia's database called
Wikidata as a "back end" in their 358 languages (and possibly
Wikipedia/Wikidata/Wikimedia's affiliated online language

Here's the beginning of England World University and School - .

And here are the beginnings of Scotland WUaS in English -

Scotland World University and School (and for accrediting online CC
WUaS university degrees, in one or more Scottish languages, and in
English to begin) -

Scottish Gaelic language -

Scots language -

And here's the beginning of Spain WUaS (planned in Spanish) - - where MIT OCW is already
in Spanish - -
as a start, and planned for free online University degrees.

Yours Aye, Scott

Dear Phil, Helen, and Vicky,

Thanks for this recent OII newsletter - (which I received at the email address associated with ~ And congratulations on becoming the next Director of the Oxford Internet Institute, Phil. I'm writing to send my greetings, and to mention too that I met Vicky Nash at Harvard Law Emeritus Charles Nesson's home in Cambridge, Massachusetts, more than a decade ago. Greetings, Vicky!

I'm developing MIT OCW-centric wiki World University and School, with plans to be in all ~200 countries' official languages as major online universities offering Bachelor, Ph.D. Law, and M.D. degrees, as well as I.B. high school diplomas. WUaS is also seeking to develop wiki schools in all 7,097 living languages for open teaching and learning. (I went to Fettes College in the 1st year 6th in '76-77 and studied at the Univ of Edinburgh in the School of Celtic and Scottish Studies in 2003-04, so am also a bit familiar with British academics). WUaS is seeking to become the Harvard / MIT / Stanford / Oxbridge of the Internet, if possible. And I'd love to come talk about World Univ & Sch at Oxford at some point, but WUaS doesn't have any resources yet whatsoever. For your information, here are some recent minutes from our monthly business meeting - and &  (conducted loosely in the manner of Friends/Quakers, and which is open and electronically-mediated). I also teach a course on "Society, Information Technology and the Global University" and am a Castellian in part. So I'm writing just to make contact, and say hello here.

Thank you again for your recent OII newsletter, congratulations, Phil, and looking forward to further communication. 

With very best wishes,

Stanford Rev Prof Jane Shaw (outgoing)

Dear Jane, 

Congratulations on your upcoming position at Oxford - - and it was very nice to meet you at Steve Dennings' talk (where I also was glad to have met recent Stanford President John Hennessy for the first time). 

Having studied both at Fettes College (in 1976-1977) and at the University of Edinburgh (in 2003-2004), it would be great to stay in touch with regards to World University and School, which is like CC-4 MIT OpenCourseWare in 5 languages and Wikipedia in 298 languages. WUaS would like to become the Harvard / MIT / Stanford / Oxbridge of the internet and hire a large number of faculty in multiple languages, probably beginning with graduate student instructors online - and from Oxford.

I'm including my email to Steve Denning and John Hennessy for your perusal. 

Congratulations, and looking forward to staying in communication. 

Best regards, 

Dear Steve and John,

Thank you for inviting me to send you some materials about World University and School (and by extension the newly emergent, parallel, forked WUaS Corporation). Thanks also for your far-reaching sharing yesterday at - And it was great to meet you in person, John, as well. (I'm in awe of your vision for Stanford, John, and what you accomplished in your 16 years as President at Stanford - and both of you it would seem, with you Steve as chair of the Stanford Board from 2004-2017). I'm writing to follow up about my inquiry to you, Steve, - whether you both might have interest in becoming co-chairs of the WUaS Corporation, a startup general stock company planned in ~200 countries' official / main languages (and indeed in all 7,099 living languages as academic markets). I think you'd make extraordinary co-chairs of the WUaS Corporation Board - and

World University and School is like CC Wikipedia (in its 299 languages) with CC-4 MIT OCW (in its 5 languages) and Yale OYC.

WUaS Corporation plans to generate 11.5% annual returns (and also plans to parallel the long term average of the S&P 500) in perpetuity (100 years+ if possible), around these 10 planned for profit revenue streams - (out of 14 total for World University and School) - in each of all ~200 countries and in all 7,099 living languages, each an academic market. While the WUaS Corporation is a separate legal entity with a separate Board and Officers, these are all educational services in support of wiki CC MIT OCW-centric and CC Yale OYC-centric World University and School - - which has a several trillion dollars’ endowment goal. (WUaS Corporation Business Plan in GDoc is here - As a newly incorporated for-profit, the startup WUaS Corporation will be able to offer only shares to Board members. 

I hope much of World University and School, as a STEM field site in all 7,099 languages, for example, will emerge in a realistic virtual earth/universe at the street view, cellular and atomic levels (emerging from my virtual Harbin Hot Springs' ethnographic project - - where you can "walk" down the road from the Harbin gate 4 miles to Middletown, for example) - and for materials' science design, and a multitude of other STEM projects as well.  (Think Google Street View w time slider/Maps/Earth/Brain & at the cellular & atomic levels with Minecraft/SL/OpenSimulator too e.g. /status/955218421267841024). 

As a business thinker, Steve, and recent Chairman of the Stanford University Board, how would you further focus the above business plan, and to bring WUaS public? This is a real opportunity for Stanford itself, since A) World University and School is a 501(c)3 and the B) WUaS is a general stock company, both planned in all ~200 nation states' official languages - and with online law and medical schools with online teaching hospitals planned (for robotic tele surgery, for example), and in all living languages. 

Stanford Professor of Medicine Diana Do MD is the lead WUaS Corp board member, and our one other Board member, Kyle Wagner, is in Hong Kong setting up a school there. 

World University and School's Chair and CFO is Larry Viehland, who went to MIT in chemistry as an undergraduate (as did his wife, Kim), and Larry has a Ph.D. in chemistry from Wisconsin. 

I've applied for a MIT Media Lab faculty position, so as partly to be able to grow World University and School out of MIT itself, as well as Stanford, and the University of California - at least by hiring graduate students from these schools who are learning to become online faculty members. 

I hope World University and School will become the MIT / Harvard / Stanford / Oxbridge of the Internet - in each of all ~200 countries' official / main languages - and develop with the information technology revolution 1,000 years+ into the future + (like Cambridge and Oxford are old, and also highest achieving). 

John: while Steve invited me to share some materials with him, and suggested I ask Jane Shaw for his email address, Jane Shaw said she doesn't share such email addresses, so I wonder if you would be willing please to share this email with him? Thank you. 

All the best,
