 This final edition of 2025 report looks at the discrepancies between predivctions of tech capabilitiees we started to predict from 1984 to 2025 and socieatl accomplishments. We will review major deadlines that made sense through my afther experinece from 1951 whenvon neumann instructed him on joyranslism bigegst scoop ask what peopels will d with 100 tiems more etch ever =y decade 1930s to 2020s. Von Neumman amplified:not all tech but which tech advances 100 fold matters; as does hiw those privileged to be first experimenters with the edge of tech share with those with least tech which back in 1951 meant majority of humans still without electricity grids


where possible we try and use tye language of the 17 sustainability development goals; we wouldnt have chosen as manny as 17 for humans to recall but we see this more as the opportunity to clebarte 16 pratice comasess- we have a difefrent way of voewing sdg as platform transformation which we will come to in due course

we also hypotheisse that human development depends on what web situation a child is born into according to family's situation- where as of 2020s some of us are hurling into web 3 metaverse; what makes connecting life and livelihoods in web3 different from web 2 (which un tech people started to explore around 2005) or web 1 which started to be practised with tim n=berners lee launch 1990- before there were webs we diffentiate web0 the age of tele everything that started with electricity (officially the first connectivity came with telegraphs ITU switerland club of nations) and web00 as being in communities without access to electricity - of course you could go further back to web00 without any engines or web000 (up to late 15th C) without any maps round the world)


when my father died, the japanese embassy in bangaldesh invited me to 2 brainstorming dinners led by sir fazle abed- since 1962 my fathers debates on asian two thirds of umans risisng circled what he called asian pacific century but japanese friends kept taking these to deeper local intel dialogues than a scot writing oit of london apart from one annual worlrdlwide sury could muster 1948-189 (Economist St James)- a second section of this book lloks at 30 colaborations which a billion asdian women most hiped 100 times tech leaps would include from our unerstanding of a total of 16 banagladewh trips inspired by sir fazle abed and muhhammad yunus as transflatirs of what a quarter of world's human development maped round- we do look at both origins of transformation of aid from 1972 and leapfrogs with tech partners including this fazle abed started upo a university oin 2001 to futurise as legacies of half a centiry as a devoted seravamt elader of poiverty allevuation and womens productivity emulating mens
