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?

BILLY- your news is really exciting - and amy was really .lucky that you were the first chinese american she ever met in usa; my problem is i never have any bright ideas but believe i know the people who do if only they had the translation abilities that amy has when she is free to conne ct people -just as an example of why i believe this
"What is Friendly Architecture and Can Architecture Inspire Compassion"
AKA Architectures Industrial Revolution 4 (AIR4)
AIR4.1 NY INTERGEN ARCHITECTS AND ARTS UNITE out OF Manhattan
AIR4.2 MIT*Baltimore*SanFran : MOBILE CLICKS and Industrial REv 4 10 Times More Valuable Clicks than Bricks
AIR 4.3 SINO-US OPEN SPACE TECH- english game of consequences what happens when china's 23 year year old craziest open space agent meets america's craziest 80- year old
=he said to her .. ; she said to him ...; the consequence was ...; and the world virlaised ....
AIR4.4 goal 11 meta-architects - flow interracial creativity chaos caused by romano prodi visiting peking university last week causes 10000 of brightest student alumni networks in the world to reassess meditarranean/franciscan sea as integral to One Belt One Road- ahead of beijiing's biggest development summit of year 14 may- fortunately qin who aims to be world class tech translator is clarifying what these students will do next (using mit model - viralise 1 minute videos with each other - RACHEL much more attentive road ahead for this than banned youtubes and hacked microsoft silos)
AIR4.1 dianne in new york has hosted an intergenerational architecture competition for about 16 years -it has a 2 year cycle; its peak is celebrating young architects at the UN; majority of its finalists seem to have been form china; its challenge is how do all generations especially te elder ones find their energies and resources maximised by the design the youth propose -there are wider networks on every kind of arts futures in revitalising communities- it is expected this will be the biggest fringe event of the alibaba tokyo olympics
AIR4.2 back in the 1990s the architecture school at MIT wanted to be the most popular of all 21st C students - so it renamed itself (new) media lab though its unclear whether educators or architects ruled the space that was rebuilt -people like ed resor and kiehl. jose in ny know all about how mit was mobilised from mid 1990s and jayfus in baltimore- its not well understood that while 1776 first declared freedom as viewed by white men, it wasnt until 1865 that the 13th ammendment ended slavery, and not to 1881 that any practical case laws challenged the supreme court- all social justice in usa on behalf of gorls and blacks started up in baltimore in 1881 which is why convergence of every happy faith community round AL and youth communities and jayfus tech skils can be extremely useful-
4.3 -however today baltimore';s most urgent freedom challenge is suddenly architectural- the city is facing a complete makeover in the next 5 years - but for or by whom - those who want mobilisation of black and girls jobs and health and social justice superstars to be the heart of baltimore as a 21st c superport (the epicentre of USA mapping of one belt on road) will all be converging on this summers blueprinting relaunch of all the childhood communities of america's great supreme court justice thurgood marshall -thats not to mention what would happen if soft architecture of an airport tgm-BWI was designed to energise youth dialogues while waiting to connect the world; baltimore is the only opace in the whole dc region where you can be sure that any conversation is deep rooted in justice not trumpery and false media
i am not sure that the wonderful author of interracial creativity and chairperson WU of the c100 understands BALTIMORE connection in spite of being hastings university pre-=eminent social justice lawyer out of san francisco- of course we are desperate top twin baltimore-san fran - i am not well versed on what san fran's ecological significance is but balt is the deepest port in the world's largest freshwatershed- if ever global universities of poverty and climate were to unite theoir almni baltimore would like tio be there with ist 100 dollar world class graduate certificate- the cost in inner city baltimore for building doznens if green teach garage labs is nothing if you unite in doing it these next 12 months - why wouldnt the youth wing of the c100 want one lab linking baltimore
AIR 4 3 open space technology and goal 11 - community solution arch: well harrison asked amy if her life would one day involve waking up co-creativity/tao capability of 5000 people communities live at the same time- and i guess until or unless she ever gets a visa we will never find out teh answer to that question
AIR 4.4. ed if i understand has spent since 1972 rebuilding catholic faith communities out of tough places ,like sudan; today he has a magic hotspot kit which enables any 50 person student and teacher community to share any completely open learning - fortunately when we demonstrated that kit to students at peking university most interested in understand what farncsiacan italians want to n,link in with china they started to innovate ideas of how to free open learning debates in ways way beyond my ken- fortunately my father's 40 year editor of such youth empowerment romano prodi was also the main cheerleader of what being a ;peking university student connects today; meanwhile yuxuan kindly accompanies people she trusts around tsinghua alumni
