IOU president's head is squished

These goatbaggers, they just can't do graphics, can they?

The "honorable president" of International Open Goativersity doesn't display very well. I bet it gives him a headache.

Who are you callin' "honorable president"??

That's Eduard Evreinov, creator of the World Information Distributed University (WIDU), the Academy of Informatization (AEI) and the Global Education System (GES)! He has a business licence in Belgium for heaven's sake!!

(That's how his head normally looks. He's Russian, you see.)

Interestingly, the broken-English blurb describing Evreinov seems to have been lifted from someplace else. It doesn't even mention this 'International Open University'.

So... what's the connection between this IOU (!) and WIDU? WIDU was already associated with 'The International University'. That one seems to have been taking on more of a religious coloring recently, perhaps in response to pressure from the state of Missouri.

So is 'The International University' spinning off its secular programs and moving them out of MO?

I notice that IOU is sporting an address in California:

http://www.iouni.info/contact.html
USA Address

International Open University
BBS, Dept 15, P O Box 1037, Ferndale CA 95536 USA.

Fax Number: +1-707-222-0353
Phone Number: +1-484-423-0469

They are quick to exploit the BPPVE's incapacity, aren't they? All kinds of vermin are headed this way. Where's the bug-spray guy with all the doctorates?

There's a New Zealand address too. (I didn't say anything!)
New Zealand Address

International Open University
PO Box 83081, Johnsonville, Wellington 6440, New Zealand.

And something in India too:

Ambarnath  421501, Maharashtra, India

Yeah, I knew that. Remember, I too was a WIDU Grand Meatball until I found out about it and sent Robert Ray Hill a hostile letter.

That's certainly interesting.

The "Standford" text and page design are very similar to IOU's. Same contact information, except that the New Zealand address is omitted and a European phone number is added.

But while IOU's "president" page delivered us to Evreinov, Standford's "president" page delivers us to a New Zealand knight in a funny hat named Geoffrey Taylor:

http://www.standford-university.org/president.html

And just as Evreinov's page appeared to be lifted from somewhere else, talking about WIDU and never mentioning IOU, in this case Taylor's page talks about something called the Global Open University, not about Standford.

Standford's 'accreditation' page informs us that Standford is a component part of WIDU

...no Ph.G.

I assume the fire guy with multiple fake degrees is still there too, but I haven't looked recently.

Things change fast at "Standford University". There's still a little picture of Taylor in his funny hat on this page:

http://www.standford-university.org/about.html

But if you click on the photo or the president link (both are
http://www.standford-university.org/president.html ), now they deliver you to International Open University's homepage, not to Taylor talking about Global Open University.

Standford's "honorable director" link delivers you to a Standford page containing one of those strange broken-English rants by Eduard Evreinov. It conludes rather incoherently:
The WIDU and the AEI are accredited and recognized by 129 universities and institutions in the world.

Our goals entirely agree closely with the "objective of Standford is to provide innovative online education or e-learning that are designed to help working adults integrate life-long learning into their busy professional lives. These degree programs provide a quality education at an affordable cost "which was written by President of Standford University Geoffrey Taylor.

I think Robert Raygun may be involved with creative writing (and signing?) these days. Don't listen to cuz Larry: he might land you in the pokey some day.

Yee hah! Call me to deny it if you dare!
