Production center in New Orleans area edit

I've relocated to the New Orleans area. I've found some new friends down here that are developing community centers in Metairie and New Orleans. I'm their new "computer guy" and they are open to new ideas. The centers will have music gear (even drums!) and extensive computing power. We may even be able to put a version of the Sandbox Server online from here (we'll see). If anyone out there is in or near NOLA and wants to help out (in the non-abstract realm), please contact me immediately! CQ 18:31, 3 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

After a year and two month's of trying to establish a working base in New orleans, run into much difficulty but made some inroads. There are several artists, musicians, clergy folks, business people, drunks and bartenders (I don't limit my associations much) who are receptive to the idea of creating a base like the one I have in mind. It's just that the "land-lordy" type people have one thing to say:
"Show Me the Money!"
A center is still plausible at 1242 St.Roch in New Orleans, if the storm didn't damage it. I'm still not sure how much lattitude and creative freedom there would be unless I was the one securing the actual capital (which I'm not good at). Currently, I'm evacuated to Shreveport due to Gustav and quite up in the air. I shall now consider proposals to relocate to another part of the planet. I hear a rumor that SBJohnny may have an alternative place. Hmmm. Something to think (and pray) about. Hmmmm. • CQ 16:40, 3 September 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Needs greater clarity, focus, and copyediting edit

Hmmm sounds like my life. Thanks for the cleanup tag, Jtneill.

Clarity: The whole idea of the Across the Wikiverse WCR show is to help build community.

Focus: The production of open-content media captured from the real world.

Participation is Everything!, after all. The logistics involved in the Across the Wikiverse experiment are difficult. I'm not well-established out here in the "real world". (no car, no equipment, very little cash, no particular place to dwell, etc.) I'm currently in New Jersey, but heading back to New Orleans tomorrow. I was in Central Park today, in fact. Well I gotta run as soon as I copyedit a little.

Next time, if you want to phase me, do it here on the talk page, please. But thanks for your interest in Wikiversity:Quality! • CQ 04:34, 12 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Update edit

I am now back at my sister's farm in Kentucky. The situations in New Orleans and Memphis are still favorable for establishing urban production centers and cyber-cafe facilities there. I'm connecting with similar ideas all over the world, so this is just a matter of time and confluence. The centers can be urban, suburban or rural.

The needs:

  1. Realty: storefronts, garages, kitchen tables...
  2. Network: servers, software and bandwidth...
  3. Production: talent, equipment, enthusiasm...
  4. Wiki: participation, ideas, promotion in the wikiverse

I'm working with OpenKollab members and Espians who understand this concept clearly. CQ 16:11, 22 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Build 20150325 edit

Been working on the Internet version of this since 2001:

It is now up to us to displace the complacent attitudes in this region by radical actions based on some advanced concepts that we've discovered. A few people in the area understand these concepts and see how we intend to apply them. CQ Build 20010725

I've since my last edit spent a couple of years in Chicago, USA and still waiting for reality to make it to Wikiversity. See Chicago Acoustic Underground for some ideas of how the program's music will evolve. We're connecting with many other places, too.

I know this is taking too long, but this program and practicum are still on {{queue}} as soon as ONE PERSON agrees that the show is real. But what does Wikiversity or ANY web community have to do with the real world? Consider this:

"Perhaps the Distributed Autonomous Organization itself should be held liable for its own actions. But then we encounter an ever bigger problem in terms of law enforcement. It is virtually impossible to recover damages or to obtain an injunction unless these measures have been specifically encoded into the contract/constitution of the organization." Retrofuturism

The conversation moves the groove from Moore's law through Peter Diamandis and on through the blockchain to new possibilities like Ethereum ... and we are taking it further... CQ (discusscontribs) 00:52, 25 March 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
