Q why did you start publishing good hubs guide in 2003? well...

like many folk 9/11 changed what I spent my life's work on- within 2 years I was attending the inuagural Global Reconciliation Network meet in London, and year later GRN in Delhi - a dialogue between over 50 conflicting cultures hosted by an Australian pro-youth medic Paul Komesaroff, guested by Mary Robinson and massively populated by Gandhians (more) .. at same time i was hosting emotional intelligence dialogues (what multiplies and destroys goodwill networking) on the euwide knowledge board (ref my GRN04 whitepaper connecting the capitals of I S E - coming wars of goodwill and badwill networks). To compliment this massive European virtual network, each city needed a meeting space so we could collaborate with youth on each others most exciting project solutions. I hosted about 100 collaboration cafes but many world citizens found they needed some sort of hub as a more permanent club or open space



Q What do you mean by : To MOOC or Not to Hub.....well 10 years of research shows what you value most from a hub is deeply personal-  we have found that no 2 raters of our good hub guide agree on rankings ... the reasoning apears to be that together with Massive Open Online what youth and radical collaboration entrepreneurs most want (need to trust) from a hub is whichever they and their peers are most lacking of the 4 C's : Capital, Club, relentlessly practising Collaboration diaries year in year out however great the conflicts that changing powers that were will put in your way, Curriculum. Members of Norman Macrae Foundation first saw 500 youth sharing knowledge around a digital net in 1972 and thereafter we founded Entrepreneurial Revolution Dialogues at The Economist - so for 2013 (the 170th birthday of The Big E) we wish to help linkin MOOC- where C stands for Curriculum ... more

unfortunately there is a tendency of worldwide hub networks to become insider movements - the exact opposite of what they appear to promote- rsvp if you have found a hub that celebrates open collaboration as joyfully as a entrepreneuruial revolution ceritified mooc that gets actionable knowhow out to millions of youth at a time

 History of hubs world and search for exponentials transparent business model partners

Economics: Sch's who's who  ( more details at and

Norman Macrae's 1976-1984 Entrepreneurial Revolution trilogy (3 2 1) opened leadership debates as to why economics would need to be transformed if net generation is to exponentially sustain the human race


mapped search worldwide that will be needed to change over to an integrated  economics hubbed out of 2 million global villages empowering 7 billion peoples co-creativity first conceptualised by the 2 sch's (schumpeter and schumacher) 

 Moreover these dynamics of networking economics need to be purposefully designed :

win-win-wins reducing degrees of separation on life critical info flows sans fronriers)

freeing community markets round value multplying exchanges of 10 productivity and demands coordinates gravitated by unique energising purpose

Global Village Collaboration: Media, Metrics & Mediation  

Above zero sum games theory of networking around hubs was mathematically advanced by von neumann and economically examined in The Economist by Norman Macrae in the Entrepreneurial Revolution trilogy 1976-1984; its practice was advanced in 1996 my muhammad yunus whose courageous microcredit womens networking since 1976 linked in 100000+ village hubs by buying up mobile franchise in Bangladesh at less than one hundredth of its then value due to an erroneous forecast by a world bank consultant, yunus economic genius and his mentoring at that time by MIT (whose sloan management school were also the sponsors of the biography of von neumann) 

9/11 and 7/7 spurred our family associates to commit to scalling up investments in hubs and what transparency maps are needed- our deepest reporter is the war correspondent callum; our other living missionary is the other one of the 2 norman macraes ; our economics guide died summer 2010 fondly remembered as The Economist's Unacknowledged Giant

in 2001-2004 we tried to connect the eu's knowledgboard with emotional intelligence, and system design of micro-up ngos, and open space (practice of peace) from which we innovated the collaboration cafe format.  and out og London global reconciliation network and simppl and be the change- when this resulted in the disastrous 7/7 including the death of one of our most inspiring co-workers , we held an open space in the islington hub inviting only those whose deepest goal was in sustainability exponential destruction crisis that they would openly share all the lead conections of their networks; we sponsored 2 years of research which led to the publication of the first worldwide hub guide during an event that was bilked as being 24 weeks of open space in east central london and identification of 20 hi-trust permission maps as well as a way to start up research that dr yunus asked 3 of us to start doing;  ... 




Our members champion hubs. Our favorite hub network consists of 8 million poorest village mothers hubbed in over 100000 village centres of 60 families. These members bank, community market and share knowhow; over their 35 years existence they have originated some of the most desperately needed solutions in sustainability world and taken every opportunity to linkin the productive capabilities of youth

if this matters to you - email subject membership inquiries

We published the first Good Hubs Guide in 2006, and update it continuously.

For us a hub is a space that is open culturally and involved in helping open source one or more solutions to the greatest service needs of communities around the world. - see also on how we seek to engage world leaders in valuing the detaiuled maps only hub intelligence can network at the speed of change

 Involvement of hubs can may mean : replicating a world saving solution through to global villages in greatest need, co-creating a solution, funding a solution a poorest youth community needs, or changing education. This is effectively done by providing young people an after-school space -or mentored internet cafe! - to serve greatest needs and map how to value entrepreneurial models that develop places so that next generations can be more and more productive without causing any conflict with neighbours or communities in another hemisphere. Actions in pursposeful teams are also the best way we know of developing a young person's personal network to be entrepreneurially brilliant in the sense of making more jobs than one takes. 

Ubiquitous telecoms change the economic capability of hubs by an order of magnitude in vital human rights areas including banking and investment. However technology for humanity does not work independently of what cuture was grounded in real communities. Our favotite hub spent 20 years refining their 16 decision investment culture before mobile connectivity networked all 100000 hubs.

Future of HubsWorld partners

we sampled londoners with 1000 yunus books in early 2008 including 450 to the launch of the world entrepreneur network; helped 2 by 1000 yunus meetings and 35 people collaboration lunch at the royal automobile club . This was hosted round 85th birthdays wishes of norman macrae - The Economist's Unacknowledged Giant whose career was spent editing  enetrepreneurial revolution's best moments


This led ro  3 summer projects: 2008 yunus 10000 dvd; 2009 yunus 69th birthday wishes dhaka; 2010 glasgow 500 declaration of interdependence weekend around yunus 7th decade wishes. launch of 2 Journals on Social Business and invitation to make 2010s most exciting decade. A major collaboration aim is to empower youth networks to hub round 20 sustainability goals they choose for 2020 connected to global grameen partners linked by futuie capital portals like and  


At the end of 2010 Yunus was subjected to a vendetta from various vested interests including Bangladesh's ruling government and the accident-prone BBC. This has raised the ante on the mobility of hubs to exchange knowow of Yunus and the 100 world leaders whose most exciting projects he inspires as worldwide youth joins in races to poverty museums matched by leaders investing in heroic youth goals (through social busienss stockmarkets and other new models of private and public partnership mediated by youth)



We wish to help design meta-hubs round 5 microeconomics job creators - 2 yunuses (Muhammad and Monica), sir fazle abed, ingrid munro, sam daley harris; we have sponsored the leaflet series consider bangladesh and invite future capitals to do so likewise before yunus testifies at US congress in 2011 which is Bangladesh's 40th anniverary as a free nation; we helped launch journal of job creating economics by sampling it to 3000 leaders of yunus choice and through all hubs committed to social business model

how do humans design futures?-in the 2020s decade of the sdgs – this question has never had moore urgency. to be or not t be/ – ref to lessons of deming or keynes, or glasgow university alumni smith and 200 years of hi-trust economics mapmaking later fazle aded - we now know how-a man made system is defined by one goal uniting generations- a system multiplies connected peoples work and demands either accelerating progress to its goal or collapsing - sir fazle abed died dec 2020 - so who are his modt active scholars networks empowering youth with his knohow n- soros with jim kim paul farmer leon botstein and with particular contexts- girls village development and with ba-ki moon global climate adaptability where cop26 november will be a great chance to renuite with 260 years of adam smith and james watts purposes there is no point in connecting with system mentors unless you want to end poverty-specifically we interpret sdg 1 as meaning mext girl or boy born has fair chance at free happy an productive life as we seek to make any community a child is born into a thriving space to grow up between discover of new worlds in 1500 and 1945 systems got worse and worse on the goal eg processes like slavery emerged- and ultimately the world was designed around a handful of big empires and often only the most powerful men in those empires. 4 amazing human-tech systems were invented to start massive use by 1960 borlaug agriculture and related solutions every poorest village (2/3people still had no access to electricity) could action learn person to person- deming engineering whose goal was zero defects by helping workers humanize machines- this could even allowed thousands of small suppliers to be best at one part in machines assembled from all those parts) – although americans invented these solution asia most needed them and joyfully became world class at them- up to 2 billion people were helped to end poverty through sharing this knowhow- unlike consuming up things actionable knowhow multiplies value in use when it links through every community that needs it the other two technologies space and media and satellite telecoms, and digital analytic power looked promising- by 1965 alumni of moore promised to multiply 100 fold efficiency of these core tech each decade to 2030- that would be a trillion tmes moore than was needed to land on the moon in 1960s. you might think this tech could improve race to end poverty- and initially it did but by 1990 it was designed around the long term goal of making 10 men richer than 40% poorest- these men also got involved in complex vested interests so that the vast majority of politicians in brussels and dc backed the big get bigger - often they used fake media to hide what they were doing to climate and other stuff that a world trebling in population size d\from 1945 to 2030 also needed to map. so the good and bad news is we the people need to reapply all techs where they are only serving rich men and politicians od every party who have taken us to the brink of ending our species- these are the most exciting times to be alive - we the 3 generations children parents grandparents have until 2030 to design new system orbits gravitated around goal 1 and navigating the un's other 17 goals do you want to help/ 8 cities we spend most time helping students exchange sustainability solutions 2018-2019 BR0 Beijing Hangzhou: BR6 Geneva, Luxembourg, BR2 Dhaka, Delhi, BR1 Tokyo, Seoul

Dad (Norman Macrae) created the genre Entrepreneurial Revolution  to debate how to make the net generation the most productive and collaborative . We had first participated in computer assisted learning experiments in 1972. Welcome to more than 40 years of linking pro-youth economics networks- debating can the internet be the smartest media our species has ever collaborated around?
