Do you see part of you life as being about multiplying how life shaping knowhow is celebrated round youth networks who wish to make the world a better place?
If so what is the topic - the action consequences -of the most unique 12 minute presentation you wish to linkin?
Dont worry - get started on a 12 minute presentation and we can help you spread/mobilise it, as well as recursively improve its applicability. For example, whatever age you target it for - we imagine if its really life changing there will one day need to be at least 4 distinct grades of presentation - primary, secondary, tertiary, and...
beyond tertiary (which in the most practical cases of bottom-up sustainable communities, we naturally anticipate as exploring a diversely local "brilliant spectrum of apps" not one grandmasters's most standardised theory)
when we use those labels, sometimes we mean teachers of the group before the group itself-
on other times we literally mean the group- for example did you know that a world leading curriculum on financial literacy emerged out of an orphanage and is now shared with primary school students in nearly a hundred countries?
ABUNDANT YOUTH ECONOMICS
unlike things of the industrial age, open knowhow multiplies value in use - so we'd really love to hear from you if your life is about value multipliers that youth can collaboratively change the world with
why 12 minutes- well that is the maximum length of modules currently being used in massive open online curriculum and collaborations

7 most wondrous collaboration curriculum we are trying to navigate for happy 2013 are emerging at http://bracnet.ning.com -can you help?
would it be fair to say that anyone who has read a recent brac annual report and had a few minutes with sir fazle could joyfully make a 12 minute guided tour presentation of slides 2,3,4
if so maybe the ask of sir fazle is will he get his team working on 19 twelve minute presentations which go into further details and also announce they are looking for the next 10 12 minute presentations which introduce more 4 hour =(20 *12 minute) content modules that worldwide youth needs to know exist
I am wondering if I can cause a chain of collaborative introductions. What I would love to do is linkin people who have at least one 12 minute presentation which could help millions of youth create jobs, or reintegrate sustainability of every local community into globalization
my belief is the way moocs are structured that 12 minute presentations are the new case studies to future the net generation needs to collaborate around if all this technology is going to end up with positive consequences for 21st c
take sunil - his www.dealchaat.com is an entry into hosting hybrid of real and virtual markets but designed round small business retailers and local community customers- we absolutely need 12 minutes helping youth understand need to redesign local community markets- in china jack ma at alibaba calculates that he can create 100 million jobs through such designs!
shafqat is doing at least 2 things that I would love to see 12 minutes viralise around millions of youth
first he is taking up the opportunity yunus sort of missed of uniting wizard bangladesh coders amd wizard tech as an export sector
second he is helping skoll and larry brilliant bring ilab (collaboration knowledge networks need to bring down degrees of separation to prevent risk and disasters) hub to Dhaka following on their first Asian ilab franchise in Cambodia
so far that's 3 twelve minute presentations I would love to be able to help create million youth demand for
naila does telecentres in ways that create jobs for women and eg victims of acid attacks so that's a 4th 12-minutes
tt is working on super-skype tutors at secondary school levels targeting her home country of Vietnam first; she has studied in the hottest places Stanford and boston of the open education movement; her work absolutely ought to win-win with the world's largest school www.cmseducation.org in lucknow india whose founding family mostofa and I know quite well
people like kim (Australia), mark (australi-LA-Austria targeting support for Egypt) and mostofa are searching out more cases as well as doing experiments
the big question is - can we make a menu of 12 minute training modules that at least one of us is confident we could quickly put together if demand came and which that person would actually want to be in the middle of because the way it is done actually determines whether there are good or bad consequences;
going back to Sunil's case from my lifetime experience much if marketing has destroyed local jobs and made value chains the opposite of transparent and purposeful so its so important that our case on how to design virtual and real market interface is edited by someone who cares about regenerating community and job creation through such designs not the opposite
when it comes to gurus I have bumped into there are certainly some who would be delighted to mix and match the bottom up value chain cases the know how to do with the above ones ; equally we could put together a best of sustainable asia without necessarily needing gurus
have I explained the idea? the window of opportunity is now to get such cases viralising round youth who want to do things; in 2 years time the market for case modules will be so crowded that those that haven't already become popular will need huge communication budgets and those will probably be sponsored by exactly the same crowd who have been putting worldwide youth out of employment even as the collaboration tech we now have could be youth's most productive time to be alive
one day if britain is ever to grow again the world's largest public broadcaster BBC should get into celebrating cases that help youth create jobs ...
