Slightly less known sublime Grateful Dead tape on this date in 1973. In personal top ten. Sonic brilliance.

An Universal Translator? 

Wikidata for Wiktionary

Looking further into the CC Wikidata future, in what ways might such CC Wiktionary database developments as you're outlining here - https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Wiktionary/Development/Proposals/2015-05 - inform, or be extensible into, a CC Universal Translator, eventually in all 7,929 languages in Glottolog - http://glottolog.org/glottolog/language - for example, as well as including invented and dead languages, and even inter-species' communication, - and in voice and video eventually, and for MIT OCW-centric linguistic research, as well? 

Thanks and cheers, 
Scott

Glory bush: Universal Translator THROUGH a Digital Virtual Earth, Libraries in ALL 7,929 languages, Wikidata / wiki 3D interactive virtual earth libraries (building on Markus's beautiful maps, for example) will create digital libraries in all 7,929 languages re my post from yesterday, but concerning digital readable books "in the stacks," [Wikidata] New Wikidata maps, In what ways could such Commons' photos/images with millions of coordinates, related video resources, and other related Wikipedia items be incorporated into a 3D film-realistic interactive wiki-informed virtual world - think Google Earth with OpenSim, Second Life, Illustris + - and in a way that's wiki-buildable, and could be used even for STEM-research (e.g. mapping in specific photos and videos from the various archaeological digs at Troy), and decade-by-decade to begin, even, for a kind of historical reference time frame virtual-world mapping?, Wikidata / wiki 3D interactive virtual earth libraries but concerning digital readable books "in the stacks," Will every book in every language eventually get a Wikidata Q-item reference with coordinates and be includable in such a wiki virtual earth? And become a significant basis of an universal translator from these stacks in a virtual earth?

In excellent news of the day, California SB277 has just been signed into law: all non-medical exemptions for school vaccination requirements are now gone. California has several hubs of people who have been refusing critical vaccinations based largely on rumors that They're Bad For You, and has had serious outbreaks of diseases like measles and pertussis as a result. 

No more. The personal and religious exemptions (basically, the "I don't wanna" exemptions) have been eliminated.

I'm incredibly happy to see the state legislature move so quickly on an issue that put thousands of lives across the state at risk. 
Ending months of speculation, Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed into law Senate Bill 277, which requires almost all California schoolchildren to be fully vaccinated in order to attend public or private school, regardless of their parents' personal or religious beliefs. California now joins only two other states -- Mississippi and West Virginia -- that permit only medical exemptions as legitimate reasons to sidestep vaccinations.

World University and School, like Wikipedia with best STEM-centric OCW
Introduction
Developing World Univ & Sch, Teaching classes about the IT Revolution in virtual worlds, Writing an actual / virtual ethnography about Harbin Hot Springs with a virtual world aspect, Bagpiping, Writing Poetry, blogging, Music (WUaS Music School/Jamming/online, free Music Playing Spaces), counterculture, Grateful Dead, wiki, Yoga

I'm developing a global, virtual, free, open, degree-granting, multilingual University for the developing world and everyone - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com. It's like Wikipedia  best STEM-centric OCW (e.g. CC MIT OCW in many languages, and CC Yale OYC), and potentially in all 9,000+ languages and 242 + countries. 

I'm an anthropologist, who also finds fascinating ideas, sociology, art, science, philosophy, history, music, love and life ~ as well as the anthropology of information technology & counterculture :)
