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?

TIMINGS & Access
1.1 My understanding is thorkil (whose train i will meet) amy and I will meet between 1 and 4 at a location near columbia university- amy do you think the cafe that camilo took us to by the library is good? or where?
1.2 our mobile numbers are
amy 917 470 4176
ed 917 836 1183 www.worldpossible.org includes rachel catalogue of all open learning and s.sudan since 1970s
thorkil 302 290 1021 Welcome to Specialisterne - Specialisterne worldwide tech platforms creating million jobs for youth with autism
chris 240 316 8157
1.3 we will probably move over to see ed at his home/office at time convenient to him
denis will probably join us for part of the time we are on columbia university campus (denis is speaking there on thursday and co-partners jeffrey sachs a lot)
1.4 Of course anyone else is welcome - or can phone us in an agenda they want collaborated around such as zasheems nearly free nursing college or Glasgow's adam smith journal on who he would value now
1.2 KNOWHOW CO-creation: livelihoods of under 30s as sustainability generation- should sept 2018 be the last annual general assembly trusted by majority of national leaders?
1.2.1 This somewhat surprising class of 2017-2018 agenda (though much more nuanced than when clinton global or microfinance summit asking something similar now that 100 leaders are likely to turn up at 2nd belt road summit beijing may 2019) was proposed by Guterres video to 2000 educators in qatar 10 days ago at the start of 48 hour WISE open space whose final conclusion was wise would bring thousands of its 7 years of alumni inspired most of all by sir fazle abed to a UNGA summit sept 2018. Which US citizens and youth can we engage in this summit with as much gusto as China engaged youth in Hangzhou G20?
220.127.116.11 ed and denis know huge amounts about the UN both specialising in technology - denis particularly health platforms; ed education (ed has also known both yunus and sir fazle since 1996 as one of the first investors of mobile in bangladesh and knows that eg the bangladesh americans the quadirs conceived village phones and today design www.bkash.com as the largest mp3 cashless banking system in the world- now a digital core of how world poorest girls developed 8th largest nation; , from birth of bangladesh sir fazle abed spent nearly a decade as a bottom up disaster relief organisation designed around the franciscan action learning ideas of paulo freire; his first chance to scale learning network across the whole rural nation (ie the 80% of villagers without electricity or literacy) came with oral rehydration saving one quarter of all infant lives a franchise unicef's james grant was happy to help fund alongside uk's dfid; brac has been built so that 80% is self-financing- pretty much the 40000 primary schools being the only part of brac that needs direct cash transfer; today brac university offers the deepest 1 month program for public health servants at the james grant school supported in part by a department out of columbia university; sir fazle is agreed to be the benchmark for jobs creating education for ultra poor girls by the majority of national leaders who now see xi jinping as the most trusted development partner; at sir fazles 80th brithday party sir fazle's family asked amy and yuxuan to search out how china and bangladesh can help each other - eg bangladesh is critical if india and china are to co-partner in arguably the most urgent belt road corridor china bangladesh india myanmar which pope francis is visiting today
18.104.22.168 thorkil has for 15 years been searching out tech partners of creating million nobs for youth with autism many of whom are world class coders and or directly connected with artificial intelligence serve human intelligence -now pivotal to jack ma's new 15 billion dollar investment in the worldwide damo academy ; after his year long visa in usa finishes- he has hi level chinese connections to visit probably beijing april; thorkil and i have also spent a few days trying to learn from CKGSB the main chinese business school to sponsor kissinger and blockchain/ktech debriefings in new york- dennis has done a lot of work on health service blockchains and probably ed and i wont be happy to paper based national education curricula are turned into digital dashboard skills blockchains
22.214.171.124 while my fathers work from 1968 in The Economist mapped why education and tech would be the drivers of achieving human sustainability, ten times more accessible health and clean energy was always his litmus test on whether we were locally to globally coding stuff that could sustain the net generation- and the half billion youth in china were predicted in his 1977 survey to need to be the most collaborative open space generation
126.96.36.199 amy came up through rural china education and a second tier university where the best thing about her biotech degree was she taught herself english- hence on her first trip abroad billy and i met her during the week before independence 2015 outside the whitehouse at the 16 creative child olympiads- amy's most practical mediation mentor is harrison owen - so she has been open spacing dialogues in sustainability goals from us to china to us and via london where ian has worked on global media crises for 25 years and bangladesh; thorkil also met billy on his last trip to stanford- among many of billy's network stories are how hard chinese americans have been working to build trust between china and usa - something that has been relentless in terms of human and cultural networking since the days of kissingers ping pong diplomacy
part 2 the un changed when guterres was appointed
Brazilian compatriot of paulo freire has some interesting advisers including female sheikh from qatar jack ma columbia's jeffrey sachs, richard curtis producer of american idol and other reality tv shows that also created trump (richard is now in middle of un's project everyone) - these advisers are also being surveyed for new developing bank ideas akin to xi jinping by Lord Stern at LSE on behalf of AIIB ( which i prefer to call AIEIB so that education is at the center of people-centric development banking)
javeed (new york and india) and I were astonished 10 days ago when 2000 of us in qatar were told guterres sir fazle abed and qatars female sheikh would host the most collaborative learning summit ever at the Un general assembly sept 2018 and amongst other foci every refugee learning crisis spot would be included- to get a very rough idea of wise 20000+ alumni since it awarded to sir fazle in 2011 click here or tell us one other click
amy at jeffrey sachs dept would like to know where to intern xmas and winter
many people javeed and i met would like to know how to connect with new york apart from the summit itsely
its always hugely valuable to hear what thorkil ed and denis are doing next and whether students can help them scale anything- some of wise's most extraordinary chinese connectors will help stage a DC and baltimore debriefing at end of january having heard how hard jayfus and al have been working to get baltimore ready for amazon2.0 or alibaba partnership- are there other us learning supercities we should be linking in rto wise@UNGA
? we will have a clearer idea once sir fazle adds to the 5 minute briefing he gave me in qatar- this follows on about 14 hours of briefings sir fazle has kindly shared with mostofa and I since he helped 40 social tech leaders in bangladesh assemble at japan embassy as remembrance party to dad - eg the mooc of 30000 microfranchises
