Main reason for optimism is leapfrogging - thats when a society/place that was excluded from industrial age networks leapfrogs an old system to a new one thanks to 1000 times more COMstech than 1946; about a third of the world never had wired telephone lines, now almost all have mobile (text version); more than a quarter of the world never had electricity grids, now microsolar is linking in;.

|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?

in new york wed afternoon and thursday next week
do any of these questions interest you -if so who should we try to meet if you are in town?
q1 whether brooklyn maximises youth in development, african dispora, womens networks now that 1776 has come to town
q1a whether baltimore model around king and friends is the most collaborative for any supercity space that african american entrepreneurs want to conscious maximise networks through
q2 can we linkin tech geniuses and engineering schools - kiehls friend jose has a world class fab lab in ny; we still havent worked out action connections with mit, columbia uni , nyu
q2a do black americans want to be one of lead exchange groups of 1000 students travelling every 4 months to college in china that daniel works for
q2b while the education commission headquartered in new york has spent most time since september on uganda and malawi - its not been connecting positive tech groups - i know who is in new york at World Possible
i learnt on tuesday that the commission is spending a whole week in kenya early may - that will probably be the last time to impact what EC consequences on africa are -since so many people are piling into the ec to try and add to the financial gravy train - too few are exploring education change- this is being done by wise instead - fortunately wise is compiling ever better maps of who can help future of jobs education in africa even as education commission seems to be spiralling the wrong way
the commission hasnt linked in the worldwide movement on peer to peer adolescent health even after any years of research at lancet and presentation at youth in development by george patton- its disconnecting all the girls clubs brac had helped found across africa;
frankly there are so many places around the world other than africa where i understand who I am working with that unless african diaspora sort out what they want to do with tech in education in africa very soon - i see no point banging my head against washington's false models of aid in africa when at least the east has smart ones
its also failing to be of any interest to jack ma or the leading edge issues that g20 youth networkers aim to innovate across latin cultures in 2018 and india's coding culture sin 2019- india and africa have the same sort of crosis in yterms of only tech china change schools fast enough- the world bank knowledge fest that prita and steve and i attended 2 weeks ago mainly got the wrong end of the stick on this - a serious problem as the world bank is currently writing up its first ever report on education as being core toi development
amy and you never presented plan back in spite of so many multipliers that had been conne cetd through world bank youth in development crowdfunding, challenge presented by 30 national leaders admitting half of youth will be unemployable unless we open space change around youth, connections with african youth empowerment summkit lout of liberia were not made or at least not reported back in any way that could have informed hubs in us cities that i pass through
this is the most critical time of year if we are to brief hundreds of student unions on liberty they could be connecting when they come back for year of 2017-2018 -
stephanie if you are not in ny next week is there anyone in dc or baltimore king and I should be talking to whom you see as advancing same values as you want
