|Even as the 1960s moon race inspired the world, we need to understand how unequal the opporttunity to innovate had been - even in the 1960s as many as half the world's people had no access to electricity grids so they got their news of the moon race by word of mouth.|
Consider 1000-1500- until the last few years of this period , the known world was Europe-Asia and NE Africa; #BR8 the med sea was the main world trade waterway; places facing this sea increasingly developed win-win trades; moreover #BR7 the west asian border to med sea was the start of an amazing overland relay of traders which stretched all the way to china (the silk road was the greatest overland world trade route ever and to sustain its interfacing markets required positive cross-cultural bridging all along its route. Silks and spices from the Chinese end acted like a positive currency- there was much demand for them whose value naturally went up the further they were merchanted back to Europe. Everyone gained for this trading route- you can read marco polo's diaries- perhaps nowhere invested more in artistic celebrations of being a major hub of positive trade than his hometown venice in europe and the town he was asked to govern for 2 years in china Hangzhou which marco described as the great town of markets in the world.)
What happened towards 1500 that 2 long shipping routes were discovered by north europeans- the new world of the ameriucas to the west (#BR6 N, #BR10 what we now call Latin America), and a way of reaching the @BR2 South Asian coastal Belt (starting with the indian subcontinent) by sailing around africa. A ship captain couldnt affird such a long return voyage unless he goit what trade he wanted- soon this big ships were equipped with gun power and crews were pressganged or even enslaved. Next in the process was colonising. So it was that nations became big by pludering economies of other peoples places. Back in 1500 places economic size was corelated with population. Soon Britain grew at the expense particularly of the Indian subcontiuent. Mainly Britain and France colonised Africa too, Spain andPotrtugal colonised Latin America. North America was settled by a mixyure of Europeans whose declaration of Indendence in 1776 ended any attempt by Britain to colonise America, But we should note that the USA was built on a sort of internal colonisation - natives had theor places taken over and slaves were used to do most of the hard labour. In effect the old war's colonial ways casued the 2 world wars of the fkirst half of the 20th C. From 1946 most of the world's countries regained their independence but starting from (mainly undeveloped states - poverty that the colonia era had gtraped them in).
Ironically whule the UDA came to tghe resuce of the old workld and from 1946 helped relaunch the two biggest losers of world war 2 Germsny and Japan, american (not withstandiong thair family trees origins) had previously had little modern of knowledge of Eurasia but were pulled into peacekeeping and the cold war with russia through the sceond half of the 20th C. Whilst there was some understanding of the extraoerdinary progress japanese enginers made with electornics, civil and other enginnering, the rise and rise of the east and the often difficult bodrers that had been caused by British and Jpoanese colonisation of the region are not deeply studied by most Americans or their media. It should be the best news the world has ever seen that the fifth of the world in chjna tghat closed itself to the world for more than a centiry after Brfits has offered opium as a gtrading currency in 1860 is now as entrepreneurial as anywhere. With over half of tghe world's ;people facikng either the sout asia or east asia coastal belts, the opportunity the east is cfreating to win0pwin gtrade oin line with moore's ever increasing technology should make sustainable youth worlwdie the gfreatesty positive curency-invetsment the human race has ever mapped. But this is not how USA or the block of coungtriues ruled by the Euro have marketed transapfrently. Instead we are caught in the Keynsian crisis of economist not valuing the hippocratic oathes he had published as tghe final chapter of the ngeneral throy of employment money and interest. The 2020s are likely to make the system designs our tech spreads irreversible- will the end game be big brother extinction or little sister sustainability?

Hi friends -greatest #learninggeneration - kenya-china-vatican-asia-usa ...
TO LIST you may recall when ed john rodrigo daniel I maureen travis met last monday part of the discussion turned to best coding training for jobs and people cited eg general academy but agreed it was quite costly at least compared with open source learning goals
in that conversation i mentioned audrey in kenya- her morimga coding school is recognised by the world bank as a benchmark for youth and aiming to design apps that end poverty -and ed resor in particular said he would like intro to audrey as he has so many rachel world possible networks criss-crossing kenya (the only other school featured among world bank's 200 youth in developers was gustavo's amazing model for english as second language out of sao paulo brazil)
please find out whether your interests match audrey cheng as someone who has taken up this path from graduation with unparalled spirit

also king, jayfus, al, lee - how can we make al's cybercentre in baltimore and audrey a win-win and how do we bridge coding back to k-12 and up to blockchain: if we can start doing this everywhere that ed and intel reach then surely we eventually reach what jack ma and jim kim wants education commission to reach
are there issues to discuss with catholic relieve services given ed's 40+ year relations with this network, and 8 months before ;pope francis i was asked in rome to start interviewing heads of us colleges as to whether Francis curricula interested them - would they at minimum encourage student union clubs to discuss preferential option poor young professional models ( amongst other sad replies i got told no by 3 senior people at catholic university of america)
18 MONTH DEADLINE
the desire to land all the good stuff of "big coding small enterprise inclusion" in argentina g20 in a way that unites what both pope francis and xi-jinping want- maurice is youth ambassador top vatican university and keeping an eye out there- camilo you recall we spent 2 hours discussing this before xmas when i also showed you and rodrigo ed's rachel
when peter and I first i studied john mackey in 2008 in relation to 20000 yunus student club my family linked, michael strong was writing books with him as well as starting up a charter school- strongs school has increasingly moved into entrepreneur curricula - we several times tried to connect with this during early stages of king and steve foerster and tebabu animating conscious capitalism youth connections particularly with university of dc a space that i was main local coordinator with before and after yunus spoke there; we had asked every college in dc region would it host a collaborative competition with yunus youth entrepreneurs and all but dc said no we will only host competition for our own students ; anna and john brittell know some more of this story
i believe all this ups stakes in
1 connecting in mit direction - something kiehl has been doing every time i meet him and amy pretty much every time i met her - and which i believe in boston fady and ab can do- fady do you remember you introduced me to that chilean lady who was in boston trying to understand how to bring back some combination of mit and we-work culture to chile's sponsorship of entrepreneurs; michelle bachelet is a huge connector with unwomens and as a supporter of jinping; if we can bring in someone from her team then she can get to branson and steve case who both connect with unwomens tech side; we were so near to doing this at Medgar Evans we must not fail timing wise now for baltimore - 1776 remains steve cases hub for connecting dc and baltimore and brooklyn which it is opening up at navy yard;
john i havent heard from stephanie for a while now- what happened to her? she was linking in brooklyn and youth in development with african crowdfunding and with ab's herstory at wikipedia-
gordon and jeanette has been linkin in all of this sort of stuff at k-12 out of new zealand for 30 years now - i have donated the book of the http://www.thelearningweb.net/ to west baltimore schooling system along with the rachel; it was also gordon who told me who to contact in tsinghua to connect with students who love jack ma most there and who have just finished the 2nd in series of books they edit with aliresearch.com founded ying lowrey
stefanos whose brother runs a youth hub out of addis abba is aiming to start a schooling system in takoma park region where we already have ethiopia's leading diaspora networks engaging marylands senator through tebabu;
prita steve and i will be at the next 1000 person world bank african knowledge summit in 8 days time
prita used to work in world bank learning division and will be starting something new in india soon- she comes from kerali where she has know networks of amma.org - amma convinced the un to lead her search for nanotech partnerships and putting consciousness back into science- she was at the epicentre of the campaign to get a woman leader of teh UN; steve already runs a virtual university to africa- it has a formal constitution out of the carribean island nation that his wife adele hails from
i am sure you all can find better practical links than my rough guide to who wants every youth to be included in coding as one of the 3 main languages with chinese and english and alongside mother tongue-
this isnt easy to say but jim kim is caught in several DC silos at a time when creative destruction to every other dc institution is being mixed up by our president like there is no tomorrow - his main remit at world bank doesnt connect with the educatoors he would most like young professionals to connect with (china's jack ma, franciscans, sir fazle abed) - for some reason each of these 3 diaspora networks organises istelf somewhere else in dc than after hours at world bank whereas africans do seem to after-hour world bank with huge gusto
