d in certification and those where the founder has an opposite purpose (eg khan academy became massive in maths because he initially had no interest in certification although now he is happy to take funds where a lot of effort is needed to change us education systems mindset on maths exams- meanwhile he is doing health from viewpoint of maximising free knowhow of health and youth jobs opportunities ..
the reason (to retain certification monopoly or to free youth from this) becomes all or nothing in terms of job creation- for example the non-certification moocs may actually be trying to maximise searches for new curricula and jobs for youth from peer to peer education and replicating microfranchises - the only way the next 3 billion jobs are going to be collaboratively created so as to also sustain community and end poverty
also bear in mind that mooc was coined by people outside universities who wanted to end the certification monopoly which is why some open educators feel very much betrayed by coursera - search reclaim learning
It interests me as a scot that a core tenet of the adam smith (and indeed folk like james wilson- the original mediators of the entrepreneurial) curriculum of economics is never ever let a monopoly certify your youth especially a monopoly whose elite goes inside government its probably an even more fundamental value multiplier than "freedom of speech" -and definitely the core innovation of both gandhi and mandela (or where compound futures of economics and peace intersect)
Regarding #2030now It would be the right time to form a hi-level panel of bangladeshi open tech edu wizards - few groups could have greater impact on future trades of your nation and region -few could help jim kim and pope francis free public servant economics
who in brac or grameen could invite people like khan and the co-founder of you tube and the co-founders of grameen phone to join in that now especially those whose office is in walking distance of berners lee

Does your capital have a start-up franchise worthy of collaboration social networking support? Where do such solutions get incubated? Can we search out the 30000 microfranchises The Economist predicted in 1984 would be needed to help design the net generation 3 billion new jobs? Which leaders most get investing in 2010s being youth's most collaborative and productive decade ut of every communityhttp://www.wholeplanet.tv
apitals like Boston and San Francisco are joyfully used to making collaborationsocial easy for young people. This has an unintended consequence. While they are brilliant places for youth to build a entrepreneurial alumni network for life (MIT's being the number 1 job creating alumni network in the world) they are not likely to offer clues to capitals that are starting with a low index on collaboration socialSince 9/11 I have studied London, Paris and DC as very low collaborationsocial capitals. While historical histories for this anti-youth networking infrastructure are different, some of the facilitation needs seem to be common. For example in DC, a very important freedom is to find one university - any university within reach of Washington - that stages one day a year when everyone listens to youth microfranchiise experiments independent of which university the student comes from.It took 7 years to negotiate this event to free students from their separated universities (or 14 years if you include earlier attempts by free media experts)Fantastic motions for social collaboration led by youth at the inaugural DC event april 2013a tourism portal for native americans - designed by and for the native americans , enlisting the collaboration support of every relevant native american association -a french student in a rural Virginia college - why on earth doesnt usa replicate blablacar 1 2 - the most ecological and social network transformation for car sharing and energy savinga demonstartion of thriving carbon negative energy economies - link together 2 ideas such as convertinhg an abundant local waste into biogas and changing water boilers in houses to be fuelled by this biogas One of the policy lessons from this project is that unintended consequences of energy subsidies have caused the main commercial organsiation in this market to charge triple what it does in other countries and to use this excess profit to block more economical competitors form starting up in any community…
above all else on system designs these two experts make. They are the designers of whether man's biggest organisational purposes are valued round goodwill, transparency and human sustainability. And their impacts have exponential consequences for better or for worse.
If economists had truly implemented Keynes knowledge- the 2010 nostrum of a system too big to fail would never have had currency -preventing such systems as too big to exist would have been a hippocratic oath of any professional the public grants a monopoly to rule over us
Mathematically this means that any analyst who quotes number to you isnt worth a cent unless they also show you how they calibrate the exponential future consequence being directed by their analysis
Since 1950 the world has spent more and more on communications, and today's net generation is in the midst of a communications revolution which makes history's innovations including the printing press and the steam engine look like minor blips in transforming human connectivity. What are the exponential opportunities and risks of this? Everyone concerned with humanity's future needs to urgently engage all their networks of friends in exploring this question-this is the only way that the peoples we can win-win from an increasing borderless and cross-cultural world in which the sustainability of everyone's community trust interfaces with everyone else's
By 1972 The Economist had concluded that tv mass media was spinning the most costly and dumbest systems man had ever designed but the coming of the internet offered the possibility of opening up the smartest job creating media- those who wanted to join in exploring this were invited to become alumni of Entrepreneurial Revolution. Plan for professionals aged 25-35 in 2015 to be the most educated, connected and caring system designers the human race has ever graced- design capital to invest in their millennial goal solutions
Over the next quarter of a century, many of ER's greatest entrepreneurial revolutions needed to come from the Eastern hemisphere because that is where population statistics showed the majority of millennial would grow livelihoods - the West needed to celebrate every opportunity of designing win-wins with this unprecedented potential for innovation and human progress.
Post-Industrial Revolution: Mobilising Open Education Gateways?

Curiously, part of the answer seems to be that many of the western social entrepreneurs inspired by Gandhi did not value his main transformation idea. If you find your country being ruled by a regime which is increasing putting more and more of your people's livelihoods in jeopardy with laws that do not empower everyone's rights, start a completely new education system, Several of the best job creating education systems in the world have been inspired by Gandhi

But young adults of twenty-three to forty-five stay at home to play much more than in 1974; it is quite usual today for one parent (probably now generally the father, although sometimes the mother) to stay at home during the period when young children are growing up. And today adults of forty-three to ninety-three go back to school - via computerised learning - much more than they did in 1974.
In most of the rich countries in 2024 children are not allowed to leave school until they pass their Preliminary Exam. About 5 per cent of American children passed their exam last year before their eight birthday, but the median age for passing it in 2024 is ten-and-a-half, and remedial education is generally needed if a child has not passed it by the age of fifteen.

Macrae: he was an elegant writer of original ideas who delighted in paradoxes
? - Jun 11, 2010
A British economist, journalist and author, considered by some to have been one of the world's best forecasters when it came to economics and society. These forecasts mapped back to system designs mediated so that readers and entrepreneurial networks could exponentially calibrate shared alternative scenarios. He joined The Economist in 1949 and retired as its deputy chief editor in 1988. He foresaw the Pacific century, the reversal of nationalization of enterprises, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the spread of the internet, which were all published in the newspaper during his time there. Not to get bored, his first ten years in retirement produced the biography of Johnny Von Neumann (the mathematical father of computers and networks), a column for the UK Sunday Times, and a 'Heresy Column' for Fortune. He was the father of mathematician, marketing commentator, and author Chris Macrae. Their joint future history on death of distance in 1984 forecast that 2005-2015 would be humanity's most critical decade irreversibly impacting sustainability. In 1984, he wrote "The 2024 Report: a future history of the next 40 years". It was the first book to: provide readers with a brainstorming journey of what people in an internetworking world might do, and predict that a new economy would emerge with revolutionary new productivity and social benefits enjoyed by all who interacted in a net-connected world. In this book, he wrote: "Eventually books, files, television programmes, computer information and telecommunications will merge. We'll have this portable object which is a television screen with first a typewriter, later a voice activator attached. Afterwards it will be miniaturised so that your personal access instrument can be carried in your buttonhole, but there will be these cheap terminals around everywhere, more widely than telephones of 1984."

There has been a sea-change in the traditional ages on man. Compared with 1974 our children in 2024 generally go out to paid work (especially computer programming work) much earlier, maybe starting at nine, maybe at twelve, and we do not exploit them. But young adults of twenty-three to forty-five stay at home to play much more than in 1974; it is quite usual today for one parent (probably now generally the father, although sometimes the mother) to stay at home during the period when young children are growing up. And today adults of forty-three to ninety-three go back to school - via computerised learning - much more than they did in 1974.
In most of the rich countries in 2024 children are not allowed to leave school until they pass their Preliminary Exam. About 5 per cent of American children passed their exam last year before their eight birthday, but the median age for passing it in 2024 is ten-and-a-half, and remedial education is generally needed if a child has not passed it by the age of fifteen.
A child who passes his Prelim can decide whether to tale a job at once, and take up the remainder of his twelve years of free schooling later; or he can pass on to secondary schooling forthwith, and start to study for his Higher Diploma.
The mode of learning for the under-twelves is nowadays generally computer-generated. The child sits at home or with a group of friends or (more rarely) in an actual, traditional school building. She or he will be in touch with a computer program that has discovered , during a preliminary assessment, her or his individual learning pattern. The computer will decide what next questions to ask or task to set after each response from each child.
A school teacher assessor, who may live half a world away, will generally have been hired, via the voucher system by the family for each individual child. A good assessor will probably have vouchers to monitor the progress of twenty-five individual children, although some parents prefer to employ groups of assessors - one following the child's progress in emotional balance, one in mathematics, one in civilized living, and so on - and these groups band together in telecommuting schools.
Many communities and districts also have on-the-spot 'uncles' and 'aunts'. They monitor childrens' educational performance by browsing through the TC and also run play groups where they meet and get to know the children personally...
Some of the parents who have temporarily opted out of employment to be a family educator also put up material on the TC s for other parents to consult. Sometimes the advice is given for free, sometimes as a business. It is a business for Joshua Ginsberg. He puts a parents advice newsletter on the TC , usually monthly. Over 300 million people subscribe to it, nowadays at a 5-cent fee per person, or less. Here's an entry from the current newsletter:
"Now that TCs are universal and can access libraries of books, 3-d video, computer programs, you name it, it is clear that the tasks of both the Educator and the Communicator are far more stimulating that ten years ago.
One of my recent lessons with my ten-year-old daughter Julie was in art appreciation. In the standard art appreciation course the TC shows replicas of famous artists' pictures, and a computer asks the pupil to match the artist to the picture. Julie said to the computer that it would be fun to see Constable's Haywain as Picasso might have drawn it. The computer obliged with its interpretation , and then ten more stylised haywains appeared together with the question 'who might have drawn these?'. I believe we are the first to have prompted the TC along this road, but it may now become a standard question when the computer recognises a child with similar learning patterns to Julie's.
It is sometimes said that today's isolated sort of teaching has robbed children of the capacity to play and interact with other children. This is nonsense. We ensure that Julie and her four year old brother Pharon have lots of time to play with children in our neighbourhood . But in work we do prefer to interact with children who are of mutual advantage to Julie and to each other. The computer is an ace teacher, but so are people. You really learn things if you can teach them to someone else. Our computer has helped us to find a group of four including Julie with common interests, who each have expertise in some particular areas to teach the others.
The TC also makes it easier to play games within the family. My parents used to play draughts, halma, then chess with me. They used to try to be nice to me and let me win. This condescending kindness humiliated me, and I always worked frenetically to beat my younger brother (who therefore always lost and dissolved into tears.) Today Julie, Pharon and I play halma together against the graded computer, and Julie and I play it at chess. The computer knows Pharon's standard of play at halma and Julie's and mine at chess. Its default setting is at that level where each of us can win but only if we play at our best. Thus Pharon sometimes wins his halma game while Julie and I are simultaneously losing our chess game, and this rightly gives Pharon a feeling of achievement. When Julie and I have lost at chess, we usually ask the computer to re-rerun the game, stopping at out mistakes and giving a commentary. As it is a friendly computer it does a marvelous job of consoling us. Last week it told Julie that the world champion actually once made the same mistake as she had done - would she like to see that game?
I intend to devote the next two letters to the subjects I have discussed here , but retailing the best of your suggestions instead of droning on with mine."
While the computer's role in children's education is mainly that of instructor (discovering a child's learning pattern and responding to it) and learning group matcher, its main role in higher education is as a store of knowledge. Although a computer can only know what Man has taught it, it has this huge advantage. No individual man lives or studies long enough to imbibe within himself all the skills and resources that are the product of the millennia of man's quest for knowledge, all the riches and details from man's inheritance of learning passed on from generation to generation. But any computer today can inherit and call up instantly any skill which exists anywhere in the form of a program.
This is why automatically updated databases are today the principal instruments of higher education and academic research. It is difficult for our generation to conceive that only forty years ago our scientists acted as tortoise-like discoverers of knowledge, confined to small and jealous cliques with random and restricted methods of communicating ideas. Down until the 1980s the world has several hundred separate cancer research organisations with no central co-ordinating database.

He foresaw that that subprime would sadly delay sustainability's last call decade by about 10 years from his 1984 estimate. This would multiply the risks to all our children but the game of living up to 4000 times moore technology by 2030 would remain that whicd determined survival or extciction of our species Y firstname.lastname@example.org :: rowp.tv :: linkedin UNwomens :: WASHINTGON DC TEXT HOTLIENE (USA=1) 240 316 8157
st saw students experimenting with early digital networks is that the maps and system designs of massive collaboration and bottom-up community sustainability need total change of economics, professions, what we value students learning. Back in 1972 dad branded Entrepreneurial Revolution as the genre of net generation innovation - most of the draytons (social entrepreneur), gifford pinchots (intrapreneur), schwabs (world economic forum) of this world directly borrowed (not always mathematically correctly!) from dad's work to brand their own networks
I have worked on 7-year research projects for dad as part of my life. These took an urgent change in direction after 9/11 - studyingwww.considerbangladesh.com became dad's last live project. Since his death worldwide remembrance parties to The Economist's Unacknowledged Giant can help linkin the massive collaboration around youth which we have mapped since 1972 as urgently needing
I have spent a lot of last 6 years with mostofa a bangladeshi villager now based in dhaka searching out which processes that any of yunus worldwide agents could converge on investing in youth and massive collaboration models linked to yunus greatest millennium goal purposes> normally anyone travelling to dhaka will find that mostofa can add to their appointments diary if you explain what practice area matters to you- we trued to start a branch of www.the-hub.net around him but then realised it was safer in every way for him to be a one person hub
Contextually, urgent in 2013 I see 3 processes as most exciting as worldwide youth investment processes if they can be linked in:
A) what yunus calls making a free online global university best in world for youth jobs and racing to end poverty - see top 30 second video announcement he made at recent skoll world championships
B) social business student competitions including openly celebrating what microfranchise models work
C) inter-everything network spaces - ie whatever else is needed especially by youth entrepreneurs in terms of hubs and real social labs and virtual mainly student owned portals so that collaboration ideas can be incubated and their cases can figure prominently in the open online curriculum
regarding each yunus contact, they tend to have complex diaries and their own favorite modes of communication
1 Dr Bhuiyan is based in Tuskegee University Alabama having connected over 100 historically black southern universities around a common entrepreneurship course over last 12 years. He has arranged 2 types of student competitions:
a general annual competition hosted out of atlanta since 2000 - see www.ofcvc.org
with yunus since 2011 -he has invited all of a states universities, principals, state government education leaders to come and celebrate one day of student pitching ideas - georgia sept 2011 was first, north carolina and oregon 2nd and 3rd ; alabama 4th ; new hampshire end of this september will be 5th; i have copies dr yunus email but his favorite communication mode is his mobile phone 404 441 7881
Of course its up to the two of you but I would strongly recommend you get involved in yunus new hampshire competition - to see the process as well as see dr bhuiyans contacts including both the judge and sponsor networks. At the moment I think its true to say dr bhuiyan knows how to run a superb event on day itself- but the before and after connecting of students who might one day become usa's most passionate social business entrepreneurs doesnt have resources or structure yet. I have tried to help bhuiyan linkin a competition around the 3 states dc, md, va - and so far failed. we have some pieces that are worth discussing -surely youth across these 3 states merit one day when their best social business ideas are celebrated by everyone with yunus as master of ceremonies
2 I have also copied naila but she doesnt use email much -it would be great (I think) if you could meet on one of her occasional visits to DC:
practically she understands what friends of yunus strengths and weakness are in technology having worked at grameen phone from the start- over in usa when one of yunus friends needs 40 cinemas filling for a new film it is naila telecentres that get the crowds in; however as per my last mail her own work in usa has taken a focus in terms of womens and family healthcare in the baltimore region; interestingly she borders the catchment area of john hopkins who is both a yunus and www.coursera.org partner- the connections between your interests in health care, hers, john hopkins, and yunus free nursing college could be made better and better- although the head of grameen america vidar jorgenssen also has the day job of organising america's most commercial conferences in healthcare but it seems he prefer to compete with other yunus agents rather tahn get involved in the type of collaboration I am trying to map; however naila has spent quality to one with vidar in ways I havent and I am sure she could give a more nuanced judgement- as an example of another extraordinary dot to fill- obama's 4 billion dollar community broadband program chos the clintons state of arkansas as its social lab for telemedicine- the leader of these is very friendly with anyone wanting to share knowhow on radical improvement to health service economics and delivery this can bring but yunus historic agents appear to busy to connect
2a I have also copied taddy blecher whose networks out of south africa are 10 years ahead of anyone (I have ever searched) in real free universities
2b i have also copied rodoflo - i first heard of him while doing some judging for MIT100k - he wants to linkin all of mit's youth's connections to jobs act-crowdfunding global good- i think the cumbersome laws of crowdfunding may have been problematic but it could be worth seeing if what his network is searching for parallels what your is- MIT has hundreds of brilliant youth entrepreneurs that yunus has become badly separated from due to strange incidents in the who's who of village phones networking since 1996
3 when you compare what makes yunus work uniquely successful- and unique in its bangladesh origins -he has twice and potentially a third time with nurses inspired thousands of professionals to go and work in the villages
-first bankers(in days 1976-1996) when there were no communications other than rickshaw- actually these unbankers formed centres that configured local markets around poorest members and shared knowhow
-second energy (solar and cooking stoves) since 1996 and with the access to mobile communications that george soros helped yunus invest in -making grameen phone bangladesh's largest company but no longer necessarily a social institution due to all sorts of issues about who owns the equity of the grameen brand which were neither understood by those who advised yunus or lawyers in government
-third potentially mobilising nursing as 21st century's most trusted information and service networkers
within that you asked for my views on energy
I know lord sainsburys daugher who with prince charles and a bbc nature correspondent funded www.ashden.org the microenergy oscars- one would have thought that the combination of her friends and yunus (and one or 2 people in china who are desperate that grassroors microfranchise clean energy) could race to put up a free energy curriculum but in actuality yunus has not structure to do online education so for him it remains more of a dream even though the relatively young bangladeshi expatriate khanwww.khanacademy.org has much of the technology platform needed
what makes grameen energy brilliant , as well as what needs protecting against the vicious politics is mainly misunderstood
0 initial advice from neville williams on how hard politicians making scaling microsolar
1 planting 1000+ solar engineers
2 extraordinary logistics models getting all of the stuff distributed barefoot
3 training of curriculum - eg 15 day course to train up energy maintenance girls in village
4 before the idiotic us embassy wikleaks that made yunus out as stooge of west, yunus would have by now been trading microenergy knowledge all across china - what in 2006 he called his growing up with 2 giants strategy - at a political level us can only do harm to future of open bangladesh at moment - only japan of the embassies i have been round seems able to mediate this
please do question where you need more details -there are a lot of local oddities - eg sam daley harris for long yunus greatest us networker at results and microcreditsummit has left day to day connecting of these networks, claims to be interested in energy but if his new citizens empowerment network has a scalable model to that end then I havent been able to understand how to linkin

Confirmed for May 30th at 3:30.
1. I do not know Dr. Bhuiyan. He sounds like a good person to know and we'd be grateful for an introduction. I'd be interested in learning more about the social business competition as well.
2. W4E looks like a great organization. What are your thoughts about the potential intersection point here? As it turns out, I'll be teaching health care again in the fall, this time a course about leadership to graduate student nurses through an online platform at George Washington University (I figure that I'll eventually work with all of the George's in town).
3. I'd be interested in learning more about your perspective with regard to the energy models.
Best wishes, Carrie

How can you help with the net generations' 20 greatest job creating opportunitiesWHICH WILL BE WORTH MORE - PHYSICAL OR VIRTUAL REAL ESTATE?

Prooftesting how and why wholeplanet's netgeneration - if we are to be sustainable- will value virtual properties 10 times more than physical ones isn't just the most important issue in the 2010s. Whats important for equality of every child born into 21st C is: celebrate helping youth to communally own such collaboration properties that death-of-distance brings to our borderless human race. Urgency evolves round two opportunity reasonings:
because knowhow multiplies value in use , those virtual real estates that are open to everyone who improves life critical knowhow flows will prove their purpose by being at least 51% owned by worldwide youth (and future generation's sustainability)
because designing such a model only gives away one doubling of wealth, and because the moores law of the most connected virtual real estates doubles reach annually or less- it makes sense to any pro-youth investor to bank round 51% assets owned in trust for youth's most human collaboration goals
We also seek to prevent the greatest threat reason to be learnt from the 20th c. Wherever bankers worked to make physical property the most expensive of moore laws, they ultimately destroyed that nation's next generation's growth or caused wars. This is why youth world banking will never invest in physical property as a way of making money- and national feds and currencies with a future will end their connection with over-expensive physical property assets as their number 1 youth economic priority
