Dear Makoto (wow great news dec1- can we see draft un speech), Jeanne Samira Vriti Vincent -please could you join us for a zoom 8th dec 7am us west coast time -...........................................- I will be writing individually with friend john kiehl whose in his 50th year out of new york and boston of hosting probably the most human/arts recording studio is usa soundtrackny; ...among several asks - in addition to who values artists and youth's heroines changing the 2020s world, who would like to write up/co-publish 3 pagers on year in 2023+ web and other futures educators and tech can help guterres celebrate in connecting gaps between younger and older half of world; a month ago i was in hong kong where several amazing teams are not just publishing visions but meta-scaling them; jeanne's www.beingai.com is transferring legacy of robot sophia helping curate UN launch of sdgs to women empowerments meta-avatar curating that purpose of the verse; vriti has just hosted 3 day summit around her nft (association of up to 6000 youth futures co-creators) www.ed3dao.com- to me it showed anything i would ever want my mind shaped by at a university can now be online at dozens of parallel lecture rooms and after action debriefing meetups; and in happy digital worlds students can own their skills dashboards with personal mind trainers-- if thats how smartest 18 to 21 yeras olds demand their time is spent and UN future summits are staged 23-24- what about the rest of k-20 time of teachers and youth in a blockchainable world of whose courses and community service cooperations just do (what with) ITu? many generations of my scots diaspora family have been most influenced by asian human development in part because that was the intergenerational story since 1860 that the economist continued searching as legacy of its founder's impact on the uk royal family- queen voctria asked founder james wilson to go charter banking and taxes for quarter of beings on india subcontinet 1859- he only issued one state of nation survey before dying of dirrhea calcutta 1860; it took 112 yeras before women empowerment banking/edu for community building gravitated that out of the new nation of bangladesh- youth have been reporting views on that to us since 2007-dad's legacy circulating 2000 yunus books, 10000 dvds from 2008; our greatest support cam from hapan ambassdor to dhaka who organsied 2 rembrance diners chaired by sir fazle abed- two of 16 trips graduate jouranlists and I made to case study real and digital cooperations abed platformed; vincent has led 4 yeras of abed's university legacy; makoto's day job is nippon life government affairs; jeanne and vriti are scaling extrordinary meat-futures aligned to frameworks guterres has planted in every op division of un; samira and I discussed women victims of acid ttacks while she was postgraduating from Georgetown 2008; perhaps her story of whats next can start off our zoom ; ?? also collecting stioies at www.2025report.com - a genre that emerged from consequence of dad meeting von neumann 1951- they agreed journalism's greatest scoop might be what good can peoples unite with 100 times more tech per decade - thks JW https://www.business-standard.com/article/current-affairs/from-hawick-to-hawick-the-story-of-the-economist-founder-james-wilson-121012001578_1.html
thank you for suggesting 7am pacific dec 8- let me see if i can arrange a zoom quorum - I will try and ask people to share a short profile- does their life's purpose gravitate a 7 year itch to 2030- what if any huge ops and threats have digital webs/life brought to human experience since 1990; ideally this summary would be in a version people are happy shared on linkedin and lunchclub type or similar formats; they can always cluster in smaller private groups; for me 7 year itch matches all of UN sdg deadlines, under 30 hopes for kinder and better community building worlds, what education-tech transformation is now needed and main story of Bill Gates in his mid 1990s book Way Ahead; he made the exponential auditing observation - for planners the puzzle is less change happens in 3 years than might be expected; much more change happens in 7 years; ; 2023 is 180th year since scots of adam smith mindset founded the economist to help queen victoria transform empire round goals 2 1 - eg end starving the irish, design bank and taxes by and for quarter of beings on india subcontinent - Economist founder james wilson had some success with food getting corn laws repealed but when queen victora authorised charter bank of india - he only issued one state of indian continent report before dying of diarrhea a year after arriving in calcutta; in effect it took 112 years before women empowerment banking by fazle abed sorted out both end death by diarrhea and aid 2.0 through which up to a billion asian village mothers develop 2020-1970; I want to publish something on this in 2023 either as a book firm or a shared futures conversation; also friends at glasgow university inted june 2023 to mark 265th ketnote of smiths moral sentiments with microedusummit - one immediate goal of the zoom who wants to publish a 3 pager on what to design into web 3 or meta - obviously I am just rehearsing aloud what dec 8 could dialogue around-if you have another way to frame whats next. I'd love to hear that; my fathers life at the economist tried to action a scoop he and von neumann agreed when they met in 1951- if the legacy of the Goats of maths was 100 times more tech per decade- what goods could peoples unite? we are arguably in the last round of playing our species greatest game; this also matches keynes final chapter of general theory of employment, interest, money

2022 = 60th year since dad Norman at The Economist started connecting asian and western youth as if sustainability depended on this
NormanMacrae.net - Aiming to end 2022 (leap forward with second half of UN sdgs race 2023 eg www.sdgmetaverseprize.org designed to celebarate 10000 most exciting youthful storytellers of goals and actions of sustainabliity generation) with lots of celebration of asian mediated solutions which every western millennial and educator needs to know exist - and are ready for web3 decentralisation anywhere in need
this weekend www.ed3dao.com - an extraordinary edtech summit is led by asian american in New York Vriti Saraf; if it hadnt been for covid likely she would still be at the whittle school in shanghai - certainly new york and east coast education's gain
if you look at www.twitterversal.com or www.daoroyals.com we look at many ways that Guterres Un2.0 would not ecist with asian ed tech starting up digitk ciperation acriss the UN in 2016
interesting too is the Un league table of egov-
fascinating whos leaping up the rankings becasue most of teh basiic of empowering citizends with digital gov can be replicated from anywhere that first shows how - singapre is one place whose egov solutions almost every others natiuons citizens can gain from knowing about
next year will be 40th since dad and I sent 2025report to the publsjers - how to escape orweel's big broth endgame - assembling final edition of that still work to be done on finding escape routes (from hell's like Putin , next void or nature's wrath) - wonder if must wil; koin us with twitterversal case; if noy how about DAOROYALS.com or my extraidinary debriefs last month from EconomistHongKong.com
estonia and slovenia are other stars as their versions of AI help augment human skils - japan has partnered with slovenai and teh 14 UN coleges to spead these clebrations

web-fit purposes of digital cooperation as timelined in 1984 by 2025 Report (Macrae & Macrae)
2025 report page index us 1985 printing if you need page lasered rsvp firstname.lastname@example.org
Monday, October 10, 2022
I have DAMTP MA in statistics and live in Bethesda. I would like to discuss 2025 report last edition with you. Dad. The Economist's Norman Macrae, and i first co-authored this in 1984. We argued for the hypothesis that edtech needed to be integral to millennials being first sustainability generation. https://www.rationaloptimist.com/blog/death-of-a-great-optimist/ We timelined web1, web2 likely arrival dates. Our main hope for 2020 that children identities would be supported by skills dashboard and digital personal lesson trainers has not yet materialised but can happen if educators and metaverse wizards get together. www.sdgmetaverseprize.org as first year round youth network addressing this is a start. My father's last 3 years began 16 trips where I sherpa's young graduate reportes to Bangladesh to understand the socio-economic miracle of Poorest Billion Village Womens nation building 1972-2022. While we were first shown round Bangladesh Xmas 2007 by Dr Yunus with whom we sampled 2000 of his social business partnership book, Fazle Abed and Brac University became the biggest data story I have ever researched. It makes 1980s global research for MIT market database, and subsequent research projects for Price WaterHouse Coopers and world leading Ad Agencies seem superficial - at least in terms of data for poverty alleviation and rural adaptation and so 2015+ curricula of sdgs and edtech. Father had met Von Neumann on 1951 and been instructed to train journalists in the scoop - what good will peoples do with 100 times more tech every decade to the 2020s?. It is not widely known that it was health and edtech alumni of Abed who at UNGA 2016's first annual review of sdg4 launched digital cooperation uniting UN:NY, Paris and Geneva (where tech, health and trade expertise has been twinned since 1945). This is the genesis of Guterres UN2 Digital Roadmapping https://www.un.org/techenvoy/content/ongoing-work. Embedding edtech data quality as fast as metaverse rolls out main explain our species future. Von Neumann;s daughter would also like to help- perhaps launching AI Hall of Fame - if suitable. Chris Macrae +1 240 316 8157. My family also knows the main BBC nature broadcasters and (now) King Charles informal support through such channels as www.ashden.org, Royal Geographical Society and Youth Climate Champions as a British consular program allied to English language teaching. I can send you current publisher proposal for 2025 Report -last edition . But this is not much about me but connecting deep enough cooperation platforms east-west, south-north. Do you think, for example, Wolfram's mathematica ought to be involved? Chris Macrae +1 240 316 8157

The 2020s is 10th decade humans have been connecting 100 times more tech per decade. Only this technology can resolve every extinction risk facing our species- notably the UN's SDGs announced in 2015.
Its blind or bad application can also race us towards extinction. Indeed world war 2 was the earliest demonstration of himans are capable of very bad tech apps
The pace of tech change accelerated to 100 times multiplier around the GOATS of mathematics: Von Neumann , Einstein, Turing et al (see eg my father's biography of von neumann 1993 or a new one in 2022.
The physical power of Engineering (beyond horsepower) began around alumni of Glasgow U James Watt 1760. Fortunately Glasgow U also provide a great systems mapmaker Adam Smith to write up both the last systems maps of the world before engines (moral sentiments) and the first 16 year summary of impacts of engines on humans (The Advantages of Nations). In June 2023, Galsgow's 265 celebration of Adam Smith moral sentiments is being branded microeducationsummit in celebration of first 15 yeras of studying billion asian womens human develoment economiscs inytroduced to 1000 Glasgwegains at 25oth moral sentiments convocation. This has inspired 2 new journals - new economics and social busienss -each includes a vibrant youth sub-editorial panel which is concerened with voing deep interdisvciplinary questions.
WORLDWIDE BIRTH OF TELE-ENGINEERS
About a century after Watt's birth of engineering, it was electricity's bridge between power and TELE (communications) hubbed out of central Europe which upped the rise of technology change. In 1865 Switzerland was chosen for the foundation of the ITU (the first tele product was telegraph but today we know T=Telecoms). For long distance even worldwide communications to work cooperation was needed around one evolving standard; and indeed place governments soon needed to licence out the commons of the airwaves. Most industries beginning with tele (telegraph, telephone, telex , television, telecoms, Satlloite1G-5G ...;) or rad (radar, radio..) multiply each others consequences. Thats what connectivity does. The consequences include what mathamaticians can chaos. As Einstein's maths proved, nature is always interacting connections at more micro levels than man's science can figure. The Covid pandemic is just one illustration of why humans can no longer afford world eladers ignorant if the King Canute finding - the most powerful man in the world is no match for natures waves. Mathematically this means that professions which make judgements by bordering out extrenalities to their hypotheses are now compunding potentially terminal risks. Will transparency be brought to professions which historically societies gave monpoplot=y licences to conditional to Hippocratic Oath do no harm.
My father met Von Neumann in 1951 and was asked whether he could mentor weekly newpaper jourmalists at the Economist in the world most valuable question: what good will peoples connect with 100 times more tech per decade? Neumann advocated the century long timeline 1930s to 2020s. He worked night and day on positive possiblitiies such as computing between war's end 1945 and his death from nucliear induced cancer 1957. In a game of top 52 alumni to linkin updated annually at worldrecordjobs.com since 2008, Neumann remains an essential nomination for anyone involved with sustainability reality. We host this game as a survey we can learn 360 degree contributions from but Neumann is one of the true worldwide anchors to our hypothesis of what gravitates advancing the human lot
Von Neumann clarified some specific challenges. First his generations of mathematicains wanted their keagcy to be goods not bads they had mainly spent their lives on in the nuclear arms race. Second it was computings new fusion that offered a chance for good to race agead of bad. Neumann clarified the opportuniy of good was way above zero sume models of huan exchnages. For examples when life critical knowhoo is shared and app's that multiplies value in use unlike consuming up things which is constrained to being at best a zrero sum game.
Neumann also clarified that expereiemntal access to 100 times more leaps would not be evenly distributed geographically. So would places open source good? Specifically Von Neumann notes show that he hoped that most patents with his new technologies would last a maximum of 6 months. His logic 6 months give such a partnership lead in networking value that if you are advancing good, you would not want more than 6 months patent protection
The irst 15 yeras that Economist journalists included NNeumann's questioninh=ng in what The Economist called a severe contest of leadership seemed to demostarte some amzing goods:
Alumni of Boralug were the first connectirs of a tech "crop science" that offered 10 times more local production of staple foods. Much of the Asian two thirds of the world's beings needed this knowhow to prevent starvation while they also tried to go beyond mostly being colonised. Deming showed the Jpanese that if a product eg cars depends on 4000 engineering parts contimois impmrovement can be optimally mapped around sme networks (eg 4000 innovatirs) than one comany trying to control each parts manufaturing innovation. By being the continous goodsd assembled at the epicentre of the parts networ, a company could generate far more value for itself and with small entrepreneurial startups. A twist to this idea came when Japan was also the epiebtre of the container revolution offering 10 times more efficieny to docking. Suddenlt transsborder win-win trading models emerged- see the map japan , korea, south, taiwan hk, singapore all gleefully recorded in The Economist from 1962's first survey Consider Japan. To dad who had spent his last days a s a teen navigatirr in allied bomber command Burma there was a particular joy that the epace umbrella around Jpan was becoming the epicentre of two win-win economic models that all Asia Rising needed to advance beyond subsietence living. The Economist called these rural keynesianism and Coastal Roadsters.
It was indeed a japnese order from a calculatpt manufacturedr that caused Intel to invent the programmable chip. Intel's Gordon Moore clarifies his company didnt want to become over dependednt on one chip design. Iyt was also Moore's Law that became the first publishe example of a tech industry committed to 100 time more icapability every decade. The Legacy of Von Neumnn had by 1960 been grounded around 2 AI Labs: out of stanford (Inlel's region) facing the pacific and 70% of peoples whsoe world trade is shiped there and ouut of MIT facint the Atlantic around which about 25% of peoples trades are shipped. I have left 5% unclassified (eg those ldepending on arctic circle resources) though you can play with these numbers and in nuemma's logic they would need to inetract positively anyhow.
Kennedy had been the first worlld leader to joyfully offere future generation moon shts: 10+ year visions to celebarte the coming 100 fold tech apoplication too.
Meanwhile back at the birth of the United Nation was the digital twinning out of geneva of ITU and world multi-win trade mapping UNCTAD and world health while UN H in NY led policy making around such human goals as trust/safety, inclusion, rights and service of oublic goods.
Although the 1960s had been set up for potential mediation advances, a lot went wrong -assination of america's most passioate futiure eladers, the start of the cold war in which America and Russia were more interested in signing up dictatirs than seeing poorest places people sustainable growth. In my fathers case to distinguish mediation of economics from a new shirt-term numeroligist, he started ebcouarging Economist Journalists to debate the coming of globalisation around future hostirians and entrepreneurial revolution.
to my family and friends the byptodut of satellite telcoms was far the most valauble connectir of 100 time more. telecommuiting was one idea reheradsed in the 1960s Economist. The importace of new media maximising life critical knowhow netwirking could be pivotal to Von Neumann alumni. Unfortunately this is not really how mass global television evolved. Futher more system choices Nixom made : taking the paer dolar off teh gold stanadrd, starting the expoenetial rise of colege fees were not conguent with helping next genrrations multiply the ultimate local good- ending poverty sowherever the next child is boirn she has a fair opportunity to thrive.
In 1984, I hekped dad publish the first 2025 report- asking what the furst 2 web area would bring from 1990. As you can see from this robituary review by The Economist former science eidtor Viscoiunt Ridkey: futrure histirain friends timed the tech consequences offered by web1,2 reasonable accurtely but many of society's most urgent sustainability goals have so far been overshot
In this regard what happened in 2016 is potentailly the greatest game chnager I have ever seen. One group reviweing the first year of sdg4 education reacted abnormally to the news that there was no chnace of achieving the goal unless a lot more fundraising was done. They asked what would happen if education was reponsible for connecting all the pardctitioners embedded in the Un branches starting with a fusison of gebeva's tech trade and health practice leaders with the headquarters policy making, yoiuth futures Unicef and UNESCO's associated remit out of paris with the oecd. What has happened so far is a playing board with 9 pieces for a compete revolution in government to empower service to the peopels instead of voicing over them. HAVE A LOOK ANS EE IF THERE ARE NYP;AYING PECES YOUR STUDENTS AND ETACERS, Prensnts and communities can appky to con veumanns challenge.
I interpret this as opening the door to devating 101 ways education can save us from extbiguisk=hing our next gerations. If we are going to do this we need to celebrate those who have found ways to help the very poorest leapfrog through waht can now be classified as the 5 eras of tele
people without ekecrticity people with electricity and tele but not digital 2-way webs

Whats intersting to me is to comile a premeier league tabvle of citiznes and inddeed rural vilage nwetorkers who see web3 and the ssutainabilitybgoals as last chnace opprtunities. Meanwhile instiyutions inside the UN likke its Uniceversity with 14 national branches in have become key investment areas eg by Jpapan which is into year 60 of being celebrated by enetrepreneurial revolution economists as an epicenhtre of asia rising models

3 systems in complete conflict
Money Men Systems
Human Development Economics
Overall Neumann's question and concerns had particular relevance to my father as he spent his last days as teenage navigator allied bomber command Burma
A generation ahead of other economists,dade had the good fortune to have (google) maps in his head of what a mess had been made by colonial ear to Asia's world trade coastlines,
Kennedy announced decade long moon shot challenges as overall goal Energising ne(x)t gen
Father started annual surveys of what help did people need in different Nations- he was joyfully surprsied that his 1962 survey showed Japan was mapping two models relevant to Asian Peoples Development everywhere.

I am working on a chapter outline to final 2025report last edition to be published for summer 2023 - as a resource of possible benefit to UNsummitfuture and Glasgow microeducationsummit.com hune 2023 (aka 265th celebration summit of adam smiths moral sentiment system designs)
appendix what do scottish followers of smith see the subject of economics as being (and not ) being about?
chapter 1 when my father died in 2010 the economist's long time science editor viscount matt ridley reviewed my father and and my 1984 version of 2025 report - how could a book timeline coming technology opportunities of web 1 and 2 accurately but end up with all of its societal hopes dashed? \- chapter 1 - the 3 greatest 20th century puzzles my family tree were concerned with -
maternal grandad writing up legalese of India's Independence
paternal grandad working between the wars in British Embassies primarily gathering intel on the risks being spun by Hitelr and Stalin
father having survived spending his last days as a teenage navigator allied bomber command burma, meeting von neumann in princeton and being asked to apply journalism's greatest scoop- what goods will peoples do with 100 times more tech every decade?
why i believe those living in 2020s have the most exciting responsibility - best last chance humans will have of preventing extinction before century 22
chapter 2 brainstorming in more details what sorts of goods you might have checklisted if you met john von neumann - eg is replacing wars by peace a good humans are capable of?; which markets offer way above zero sum opportunities cooperative markets eg education (life critical community knowhow apps) which multiplies value in use unlike consuming up things; if by 2020s population size increases 4 times to 8 billion peoples and by then most peoples livelihoods depends as much on virtual production as next door, what changes will leaders of places need to help peoples celebarte staying ahead of?
chapter 3 - why until the death of kennedy 1963 - mediating von neumann's legacy and celebrating twin ai labs facing pacific 70% of peoples stanford, atlatntic 20% of people MIT seemed to be doing better than expected given brand USSR's clear and present threat to everyone including its own people
chapter 4 by 1971 had the americam mindset to the world changed and why did father foresee dramatic consequences of nixon taking the world's currency off the gold standard- what was his systemic purpose in helping to launch new innovation lenses - both future history and entrepreneurial revolution's ( bew capitalism- Economist 1=976 Xmas Survey).
chapter 5 the media challenges anticipated in 2025 report - mass media had gone off course in valuing trust of humans relationships- could web 1, 2 be designed tonopen society trust in each other; where are the most postive cased of intergenetartion human development as we approach the new millennium - exactly what did places like singapore or hong kong do to extend what eg japan and korea south had been freed by usa to develop ; where else has human courage developed freedomsd against all odds 9eb=g the billion women on the contient of tropical asia and how communities empowered their extrordinary increase in life expectancy
chater 6 so why couldnt public mass media successfully mediate one primary new millennium goal on digital and real community cooperation to celebarte millennials generation
whats the good news of those innovating education and gov2.0
what else inspires you somewhere- can we play a game of world recird jobs creators - if you carried a pacj of 52 playing cards around with you - how many would we agree on; how do we value the contectually different choices we make
conclustion does the human race still value ist children as what united usd 8 billion beings- if not are the sdgs blah blah blah
as i say i welocme advice if you think there's a beter chapter layout - even co-editirs if anyone actually wants to share the same mindspace as that I am struggling to optimistically find
Tuesday, September 20, 2022
It seems to me that if we the people want our children to be the sustainable generation then we must ask the UN to free education which values 10 times more productivity at community levels than wherever it is that monetary economists count to the exclusion of every way families serve one another locally
Admittedly I was slow to understand the full extent of celebrating sustainability - it took me 16 trips to bangladesh and about 50 events interacting with those who had empowered billion women to build asian communities
once you start studying this - you'll never stop seeing huw extraordinary the emotional intel reality of human beings can be
IS 100 TIMES (PER DECADE) MORE TECH SUSTAINABLE? Case studies of 10 times more value in community building than separating global GDP - eg 1 billion womens asian empowerment (studied through my family's 100 trips to asia since 1943 including 50 of mine 16 to Bangladesh)
2023 aims to publish final edition of 2025report. That's 40 years on from publishing our first book -and 70+ years on from Economist journalists being trained to mediate this question with John Von Neumann's assistance
We seek a cooperation with people who believe community work (last mile life chnaging services) is up to 10 times more valuable than global workforce. Since 0/11 we have studied the UN a lot and we concluded the hidden agenda of all UN goals workd comes down to this valuation chalenge. There is no pint national or global indusytry leaders declaring goal commitments unless we sort out how much needs to multiply locally if the goal is to be reality in action not just media chat.
The deadlines launched in 2015 around the newly deckated sudtainability development goalsd are particuloarly interesting. At a year one review at the UN hosdted by Gordon Brown, the overall conclustion of educational leaders from over 30 countriesd was these are not going to be acheieved for most children this century unless education and tech transform each other. Whats interesting is following how firstly 3 people met the next day to start what became the digoital cooperation movement and is now thye UN tech envoy secreatary general's UN22 digital roadmapping. Of the 9 playing pieces for youth to unite 8 billion beings with UN2.0 the two tech playing poieces are very clear AIforgood goes back to von neumann 1951 or earlier; global connectivity goesd back to fopunding of ITU in 1965. The clarity of education's role needs some searching - you need to know that global digital copoperation means edtech clebrating value of mnext generation and digotal capactity building emans unlearning and learning of the older half of the world. Once you understand those 4 playing pieces youi can enthusdiatically code enviraonment adaptation from the boottom up. You can ground the 4 human ideals communally (ie rights inclusion public goods safety/trust)
Back in our 1984 book we expected goals celebrating the first generation of the new millennium to pose the mother of all media problems. Our recommendation in 1994 was that public media like the bbc's world service should partner in launching tyhe first reality tv program to partner with the worldwode web. if this was timed as the web became at leasdt as influential as broadcast tv we could get the best of both worlds. Publish the generations goals as an innovation chalenge for viewers to continute to webchat aroujnd. Make this chat the number 1 home page of those who wamnted web1 to value education to the maximum. It has always been our view that education not economics develops people- did the choicken or the egg comes first doesdnt need to be a conflict. Anyone wjo parents is beginning a journey on education comes first at least for the most productive period of their lives.

believe it or maths people dont like jargon- we love codes wizards who help everyone join in apping or mapping!
what you see is artistic genoius in that invites you to find fun ways of escaping a stitation we all face in 2020s that scares me as a maths guy senseless is systems through which powerful mens rule the world with decisions that compound a chaotic mistake- literally chaos maths refers to a system that is out of control because nature is multiplying connections at levels (exponentially longer and data deeper) than humans are measuring - in other words even the so-called experts are blind to the gtrreatest risk that is multiplying like an out of contrlo caner - if teacherhers and kids only knew one gift from einstein, being vigilant about chaos would be my choice- an example is a pandemic -its nature making connections at a smaller and faster level than we humans have yet mapped
What good do you most urgently want to see humans unite round through every community worldwde by 2030? It might be one of the UN sdgs; it might be combo of sdgs; you might simply want to describe it in your own words then we can search cooperation of skills and goals needed to make it happen.
My family has always wanted to see a world in which each next girl/boy born has a good chance at life because every community's diversity is being optimised round families or civil networks who want a better life for next generation. Perhaps my happiest year of 25 in usa was that when Jim Kim became world bank leader in 2012. His message every young professional - first 10 yeras as graduate needed to apply their skils to any professional system not fit for sustaining their generation
.Jim Kim had some busy years; when Evola struck Africa, and the world's response appeared slow - it was jim kim who celebrated last mile jealth workers in place even if some country durectirs at the world bank argued his contract prevented him from poutting health service first - but probalby the least appreciated but with hindsight most important move kim timed; listening in 2016 to year 1 review of education sdg4 goal- 30 experts mainkly agreed we will never make it unless-
it was kim who connected educatrs and all thye un's tech in geneva- with that move when guterres took over UN lead there wouldnt have been digoital cooperation goin on in geneva among educatirs tech and a hew heroines like medinda gates- today we wouldnt have the 9 pieces game inviting every skill to play at roadmapping UN2.0 - tech envoy
start taking on the 9 playimng poece of UN2 raodmapping -eg how can we benfit from the 30 most exciting cooperation that 1 billion asian vilage women have relentless cooperated aroiund since 1972 :Bangladesh Rural Adbanement Cooperation abedMOOC.com
where can ed have most impact'where can tech wizards have most imapcat
where can finance have the most impact
which other skill do you love most taht you want to bring
|.CONNECTING EINSTEIN VON NEUMANN -what the heck is XP100|
Chaotic Einstein alumni have an opportunity to connect with what I see as von neumann and all the GOATS of maths greatest gift - and I still havent found a way to unjargonise xp100 sdgen - @ Princeton 1951 my dad, Norman, met von neumann who had less than 6 years to live; neumann said if i give you the most valuable question humans ever ask, will you tryoing getting economist jourmalists to mediate it EconomistDiary.com
the question what good will people do exponentially with 100 times more tech every decade 1930s through 2020?s; good was very poignant to both neumann and dad; neumanns GOATS of maths had less than 6 more years to live- they had mainly had to spend their lives on the bad of nuclear arms racing; 9its quite sad to read how early Neumann was scribbling in his diary if only I could dedinate rest of my life to coding; but like all jewish maths immigrants to east coast usa he knew that the world could not afford hitler winning first prize of nuclear bombing
since my father had spent his last days as a teen in allied bomber command burma, it was his life's hope that no other teens would ever need to do that again. When da joined the economst 3 years after the end of world war2 he was given a centenary autobiography the economist 1843-1943. This detailed how London Scot James Wilson had ultimately failed in trying to get queen victoria to design a world in which first london stopped starving half of teh irish to death; second teh quarter of teh epopels living on the subcontent of india had theoir onw banking system. In 1860 queen voctoria licensed chartered bank for Wilso to go do it, he died 9 moths after lading in cacutta of dairrehea. It took 112 more yeras before a viuolage womens bank was launched out of bangladesh- its first productive elap train illiterate vilage mothers to orally reyhdare infants so that 1/3 indfants in humimd vilages stop dying of diarrhea.
Have a look at history or a genre my father coined in 1976 as Entrepreneurial Revolution. Over 90% of inventions that have advanced the human lot involved lots of trial and error by a cluster of people sometimes so many that eg in case of electricity its hard to say which one person made it What matters is cooperation around a greater good is opened up just in time. Will climate good come in time? Will simply loving each other across cultures come in time. These are probaly the most exciting questions any humans have needed to answer - and if you are reading this in the 2020s tik tok you have a share in the most exciting responsiblity ever - by 2030 the bard's to be or not to be will likely define whether millennials are the first exticntion generation or whether 8 billion beings united just in time
an alternative write up of the above
If we are nature's smartest species and if we have over many decades had the chnace to enjoy (neuman maths GOATS kegacy) 100 times more tech per decade (100 times more tech is the most general interpretaion of huamnising artificial intel - within 4 years of neumann's death twin ai labs facing pacific out of stanfordf and facing atlantic out of mit were opened and there are many innovations to diuarise around alumni who linked in either of these places. These alumni have literally planted innovayions all over the world- one example a chiense american who studied in silicon valley then texas then from 1986 started upthe world's largest chip production space out of taiwan.At the time taiwan was chinese diaspoare number 1 inward investir into china mainland and the world's number 1 recipient og innovations humansd wanted to see the 2/3 people who are Asian rise around. NB back in 1865 worldwide "te;e" techologies were born initially around the telegraph. We can look at global connectivity industries (most early ones begin with tel or rad whose business and social leaders valued one standard (noboy wanted more than 1 way of turning public goods of airwaves round more than 1 communicatiosn satnadad). The mediation of global connectivity imdustries has from the beginning hapepned out oif switzerland and fortuatly when the Un was born the policy hq of unining nations donated by new yorkers was digitally twinned with the ITU with space palais ge congress donated by sqiss in geneva. At least three practices were co-locared out of geneva probably because it was recognised huge innovation leaos were possible in health and in above zero sum trade maps with each new tele or leap in global connectivity)
IF we accept that its only techforgood that can sustain all our childrens futures (even while techforcontrol may end our species) then its makes sense to map the ways tech skill people can design goods abover zero sums as well as agree what makes our species good (eg inclusion rights public goods, trus/safety) are the four the Un2 is mapping as benchmark for all gov fior sdgs
When my father and von eummann fistrt debared goods )(above zero sum trading maps) the most obvious example was gaol 4 education . when we app life critical knowhow it multiplies value in use unlike consuming up thisngs. Thats why education is the one of the skills freinds of neumann oir the scorrish school of economists on which The Economsiut was founded lie to map everry skill rising out of the idea that everyone can be lifelong elarner and coach. For example in india they have discovered that it takes 90 days to end illitracy of any 6 yera old up; and any literate kid is capable of being the coach of the illeterate one if celebrated for doin so. This is a consequence of the motessorri format which remains the number 1 vilage scvhooling fpr,at where there are not enough resources nor kids of each age group to have classrooms for different ages. WE are not saying the age graded classroom is a good or bad thing if you can afford it. We would like to note 2 things - many skills develop expereintially - we understanjd that for eg music sports, arts- its actually true for coding and enginnering and many skills that are advanced by apprenticeships. If you are doing age classrooms two things are notable- please intervene if a child hasnt accomplished specific things listed by specific ages - see eg survey rioght hand column of innovations.ning.com. Einsten noted a design flaw when do standard examination classrooms empower kids to co-craete or join in teams?
All in al after 33 years of mediating neumanns question at teh economsit i coauthored in 1984 2025report- we mapped timelines for coming oif web 1,2,3. We explored the view that chnaging education would be nevcessary for human sustainability. We wanted tech to deliver each child her own skills dashboard and her own ai assistant of what skils to learn next as a fi=unction of life and livelihoods she was wanting to exploere
-see jim im 2013 video take it on
know that in 2016 after hopeless year 1 review on education che led connections of ed and tech in geneva - under the project ane digital cooperation - kim's time of inclusive educators became the process that designed all 9 pieces ofg un2.
(in 2005 when google.org appointed epidemiologust larry brilliant to be the foundastion's first ceo, it seemed that a promise was being made that a top priority of tech's 21st c multipliers was intel we all needed to prevent pnademic destruction (I still dont wholly undersdtand what happened in silicon valley to have not turned do no eveil into doing some good so to speak - please note on balance I am defitnitely bot critiicisng google more than the 8 biggest dat comapnies taht took over most of the new value of the web 2 age but living walking distance from us national institute of health, its time that we the peoples tell lawyers and insurance and PR comoanies when a catstatrophic error is made we the peoples need the transparent lesson published openly fast -grow up as profesisons that sovieties give quasi-monoplies to- t do no harm stop blocking life critical lessons )
