 Dear Professor Chen - Harvard Author QuietRevolution Wiego Mission-FamilyTree

I wondered if you could give me some advice on whom and how to contact someone like Malloch Brown or Greg Chen or Shameran Abed or anyone concerned with Fazle Abed's biggest idea connecting his life's work and higher education

Soon after my father Norman Macrae died in 2010 the Japan Ambassador to Bangladesh invited me to 2 brainstorming dinners with Fazle Abed. There he told us of his legacy intent to connect brac university with 100 graduate-female scholars networks of sustainability goals generation . I went to Bangladesh 15 times to help file notes blogged at  http://www.abedmooc.com 

For many reasons - from covid to how Abed's illness accelerated before he could fully brief the new vice chancellor he had chosen, to barriers raised across Asia by Trump etc - the University collaboration idea (and other tech partnerships like that with alipay) are off path even as they remain the most scalable chance for under 35s to leap ahead and support Guterres Summit Future 2023. 

On the tech side I am now helping coordinate research for an AI Hall of SDG fame with Von Neumann's family - my dad became his first biographer and this month 30 years later a new Neumann bio is out. I have footnoted a bit more context on how father was The Economist's 3ed half century sub-editor of end Asian poverty (that being what founder and Adam Smith alumni James Wilson started 1843-60)

We can now see that the 5 compasses needed to respond to schumacher's question how to end poverty of a million villages correspond to the 5 core public service markets that a transparent analysis of eSG would value expoentially:
S2 access to human energy - ie security of food, water. clean air
S3 access to last mile health especially basics for infants, children and mothers
S4 With over 60% of humans working informally: Access to livelihood education (community experiential and small enterprise learning) so that villages enjoyed full employment through positive cash flow models
S5 Building (servant leadership) 100000 person lives matter community . Human rights most exciting entrepreneirial revolution has shown that even without tech a dedicated public servant leader (eg adopting franciscan paulo freire values) supporting the world's most entrepreneurial mothers can empower 100,000 person communities where all lives matter. more at abedmooc.com

You could call my father Norman (teachforsdgs.com, 1 2 4 The Forest Gump of entrepreneurship). He tried to value the borderless knowhow millennials would most urgently need to action as the worldwide sustainability generation. By 1976 his Economist surveys of Entrepreneurial Revolution were advocating that places' services and system maps needed to prep opportunities for 21st c youth to make the best of 2 experiential learning worlds:
1 world class digital networks
2 lives matter last mile community network where children and families develop

Father had been blessed with multiple good fortunes to get to 1976 from his birth in a British Embassy in Russia's Konisberg of 1923

he had survived being home schooled in british embassies in some of Europe's moat hateful place notably Stalin's Moscow and places where Jews were trying to escape from Hitler

he had survived spending his last days as a teenager as navigator allied bomber command burma campaign

in the first 6 years after world war 2 he was mentored by 3 people whose innovations views most mattered to world class joirnalism: john von neumann, sir geoffrey crowther , maynard keynes (NCK). 

**From von neumann dad was given the biggest scoop of worldwide journalism. Ask leaders what will they be doing with 100 time smore tech per decade 1950s to 2020s; that a million times "moore" if they are planning 30 years (half the world's population ahead)
**Geoffrey Crowther had edited The Economist's centenary autobiography in 1943. Because of The Economist's' collegiate instead of individualistic viewpoint, Crowther's work isnt simple to reference academically. The 3 sources I use are the common sense of editorials in The Economist during his editorship, the 1943 autobiography, a published series of lectures he gave at claremont. Additionally Crowther like all those living up The Economist's 1843 founding would start every economist alumni off by studying Adam Smith (which fortunately for Norman had been the only books he had with him in Burma).
**Keynes ; in the final chapter of the general theory of money , interest and employment keynes asks a most valuable question that he was concerned his final graduate classes honored as alumni of his knowhow- practically speaking next generations opportunities and threats are exponentially locked in by a handful of people- do you see wo these people are and how is transparency/human sustainability brought to the consequences of their decision-,making

 Dads wartime experiences put google maps in his head a generation ahead of most other intellectuals and place leaders. He was deeply concerned how world war 2's root cause had become the G8 empires (7 white representing about one sixth of the human race's diversity though most of earth north of the tropics. To father permission to sign one annual survey a year from 1962  was a great joy -this came after 15 years of writing about 1000 anonymous editorials published weekly (including only journalist at birth of european union as well as connector of interdependence mindsets which included President Kennedy as well as the 3 aforementioned wizards). Father's chose as his first survey how the rise of japan offered a model around which the two thirds of humans who are Asians could rise- in 1962 the model was already multiplying win-win trades for people surrounded by east asia shipping lanes - japan s korea taiwan hk and singapore (with notable thanks to 1962 of the peace umbrella and engineering foci that usa had actionable freed these peoples to design).

 www.Olympics22.com Hi Jeanne/Fady- sorry about length... do our energies most deeply support each other?

can female humanoids solve the biggest media crisis in the world? -  where could Jeanne visit in Boston (early april?) as well as if you feel that what Martina Von Neumanns want to see as first AI Hall of fame matches what you'd like to see game change the next 18 months (a timeline Guterres has set 2023 Unga summit of futures of all beings)


In the 1980s i helped 2 boston professors collect largest database  (express software first of its kind in decade that minicomputers mattered)  of what societies wanted from globally branded corporations. By accident french hq company i was working at became responsible for all surveys in Asia - about 500, starting with unilever Indonesia 1982: my first asian trip - I have now traveled to Asia over 50 times and Unilever's original question- what helps poorest Asian muslim women has been a common thread whilst noticing chinese diaspora multiply trade everywhere certainly what has grown engineers'  supercities (something dad first surveyed in The Economist of 1962)...Starting1988 Economist survey "year of brand" (micklethwait who we gave the story too now edits bloomberg) I have tried to link people who value any sort of open-but-structured communications/behaviours round this question: what would world uniquely miss if XXX did not exist? (XXX could be the UN it could be zbee (beingAI.com)  it could be von neumann it could be whichever is the world largest corporation; or it could be which ever asian female olympics star you trust most as wanting her generation to share in being superheroines) aka www.womensverse.net

. 1999 in a triple issue of journal of market management i guest edited : valuing corporate brand reality (& my book brand chartering focused on leading unique organising purpose).                                                        - you can segment "the world" that xxx compounds consequences into many different subnetworks either demanding or serving  the purpose (and then transparent leaders have to show at every cycle of governance how the life of that promise makes or breaks each constituency's trust as  compounded/integrated truly by unique purpose). Ironically if a physical engineer does not relentlessly integrate foundations - the whole falls down. With tangible accountants or apparently intangibles engineers like zukenberg it appears the collapse only occurs when it has brought us all down. The same could be said for I presume (globally ignorant) biotech designers of covid... so, we could have known for at least 30 years now that sustainability generation in a chaotically webbed through world of human and artificial relationships composing requirement for a totally different audit need than most western boardrooms have ever yet used though when i worked in the japan of the 1980s best japanese (and potentially all Asian consciousness led) companies applied governance round purpose (actually founders of most organisations that grew with society tacitly used a purpose audit but mbas who take over from them suffer from the harvard mba virus opposite to purposeful founders.

which  XXX could be a corporate brand, a billionaire,  the lead humanoid branch of robotics, von neumann alumni, zbee , hong kong - any system that gravitates communities of life. From 2002 harvard with the exception of 2 people (one interested in deep qualitative interviewing, the other interested in communities wpf practice) hated chartering question especially as I had spent 10 years at price water house coopers applying it to missing measurements when the only metrics a board uses are 90 day tangible accounting. In 2000 my main ally  in dc (author unseen wealth) at georgetown law school was fired by bush's inner circle because she got too close to asking ahead of time what  was purpose of enron, worldcom, other fake utlities that texas and andersen accounting brought to the millennium...conversely mit connected alumni across boston were interested in what would world of 21st miss if mit alumni did not exist. Edward Roberts at sloan business school who probably introduced year round entrepreneur competitions into every faculty instead of just a business competition wrote a report - without mit usa would miss both unique purpose of 21st C job creating higher education and engineers for good. 

Jeanne I write this - firstly fady has been living this inside his peer generation of mit for most of 21st C ;;secondly because I have a lot of questions : what sorts of conversations might zbee most want to be linkedin wirh ; having studied western media since i graduated, its all too easy to amplify mass hatreds;  much harder to app media to celebrate what next generation most wants to advance human lot around; 

: you might think educators would make it is easy for the next generation to  sustain the futures bur currently for whatever reason in the west, at least, Ed has be polluted by media and lost safety in community- unesco has just published a report saying education is broken everywhere ..all sorts of other agendas where over 60s are cashing out of the world instead of investing in millennials; notoriously 300 trillion dollars of western pension money still doesnt recognise any sdg innovation investment as asset grade!

here are some specific questions about the period between now and end of april - in other words before during and after jeanne's us trip

1 can we help with whom jeanne meets in boston (mit .. tufts ...wherever else humanoids and robots or questions about von neumann legacy connect- eg berners lee still says the web he wanted to design doesnt yet exist- is there a zbee subcommunity of how can friends of zbee help friends of berners lee)

by accident tufts is part of hosting a million student conversation on climate on march 30 (its main other partner is all of soros open society networks and so OSF leader malloch brown who author the 2000 millennium goals while at   UN); guterres has said the main summit he wants to host in 2023 is futures of all, not COP futures as only defined by 200 nations leaders

in my life time the one thousandth of the world's people from hong kong have contributed more than any other one thousandth i can think oif (with possible exception of true mit /neumann alumni)- it could be incredibly timely if jeanne could contact HK people at www.yidanprize.org - i think they  are struggling too with how do the values of openness for advancing humanity blossom in everything they sponsor without getting sucked into HK-global politics

my friend at american university has found a nice way of connecting worldwide millennials beyond barriers nations set up ; apparently back in wales of 1913 a higher ed course was taught on youth's global affairs - so his work connects that - in november he was at an oxford union debate- by a vote of 2 to 1- youth should not look only to america to provide the lead they need; oddly a wall street genre of the same sort has emerged around the biggest fund manager dalio; and there is still the question is ESG the way to get financiers to debate what investment/society is being compounded by money where; the people i trust most in the esg debate in new york are 1 japanese 2 ,musicians/artistic youth plus a few daring under 35s who have worked themselves into semi-influential positions at places like deutsche bank

I dont know if one of the paragraphs above should have been the main one between the three of us; coming back to jeanne's diary who did zbee most want to amplify what actionable conversations with? and should this conversation be widened to include people like rebecca or is this firstly a question about future of humanoids and robotics and how this connects with all the other tech multipliers which von neumann family is happy to be piloted as AI Hall of Fame if we can find www scouts of whom to nominate

oxbridge debates schwarzman richardson yidan

 few things had more impact on my student mind than oxbridge  union debates- here youth were free to debate the days greatest crises- especially ones the sad bbc thought too  controversial to get politicians to share future intel on - and after the votes were over to go and share a beer - in britain unlike usa college students are of legal age to sip beer and to bridge every political divide -youth always need to be curious about how to be more smartly connected than their elders on all lives matter issues;

re-read adam smith for example- while scots are only 1/400 of the human race and 80% worldwide immigrants; in 1760  smith and watt were first in the world to observe the energetic power of machines (one of 4 machine revolutions -do you know the other 3? - rsvp chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk); 50 years into being colonised by london smith hoped machines would be open sourced across usa on one priviso end slavery wherever machines next journeyed dow the west coast from boston up the lousisana purchase...  across to west coast - and across the pacific.. 

fast forward to 2021 the union of debates on youth futures that intersects around

schwarzman - connects engineering and ethical students in beijing's tsinghua, boston's mit and oxford's rhodes:  hateways to smart student-city engagement flow through mayors, linguists and community market makers - so far timing hasnt been on jack's ma side in turning 2020s into joy of learning decade -tokyo, beijing, jack ma - who wanted sportstars to celebrate education for all


see personal footnote 1

yidan - next event with richardson in oxford; previous event with cambridge in boston; 15 person council raising 360 degree debates on which youth have a livelihoods education future let alone a chance at sustaining our species

richardson connects schwarzman, rhodes  scholars, adam smith scholars and oxford; scotland and ireland ; affordable vaccine research and ...

 a triangularisation of mediators for valuing youth unlike any trio of people who love youth's open education that i can find in 2021 year of living dangerously : can we celebrate worldwide youth leap beyond covid, climate and the abusive misinformed media world that the 2010s spiralled ?- rsvp if you know another trio who can reach deep as we now need if ai data is to humanise machines as if all lives mattere....


personal footnote 1 :1976 on china plants rural capitalism alongside its greatest engineering leaps

nowhere has inspired me more than walking mit's square mile round kendall station where the honor of helping put as a judge of mit100k accelerate stage 2 was a true wow moment- wow what young technogists can do 40 years on from damtp without computing (pf 2); and the 9 square mile's round tsinghua south gate- this is designated as the capital suburb of entrepreneurial revolution Zhongguancun, -forgive my shorthang: zhong

tsinghua tour 1 : walk up the drive way to the engineering school where japan shared everything it knew with the chinese in the late 1970s; head north west to an old building where a branch of unesco trains notably female linguists to be sdg ambassadors-and if you are as lucky as i was hire one of these remarkable students to guide you round; my guide was just graduating in english before becoming a rhodes scholar and in all probability her peer groups number 1 end poverty networker (she had an additional mission- her parents being educatirs in part of china that nighbors nirth korea a quite scary place to grow up in)

further north west and you see the shiny new schwarzman college with the most diverse global student group i have ever seen on any compass- its notable pretty much ever asian billionnaire who loves education is a co-sponsor from hong kong's li ka-shing who has founded his own university ckgsb to help mediate diaspora and mainland chinese innovators;  to japan's masa son who founded softbank in 1981 and somehow morphs his investments ahead of all of japans great engineering corporations ; head north west through the sports ground- there in the far north west in old buildings you see the school for rural keynesian agriculture that became the soul of community capitalism discussed in my dads 1977 economist survey of china- and further west you see the school for 21st c small enterprise networking

tsinghua tours 2 3 4

if you want to do these , happy to double check mapping details - lot of rebuilding

tour 2 south gate meets zhong the worlds number 1 youth entrepreneur suburb- note the intersection of 4 colleges beijing normal; beijing cultures poly, peking uni with tsinghua as well as the origins of desing an ai entrepreneurs avenue in every university city discussed in the book by kai-fu lee- the engineer who had to reinvent himself when cancer and the exit of google china hit him at the end of the 2000s

tour 3 if you start at peking university: you see lees history of how community engineers designed a subcontinent where one fifth of the worlds people live but more of the sort of modernity that western partners seem to like

tour 4  - this one is way off the beaten track --zhong actually has its own mooc hub and festivals reserved for educators grow the world; some of the pop up in places that you probably need a chinese guide to find; for example i traced roman prodi's one week tour round beijing - it started at thinkinchna hub moved over to the inner city financial era and returned to peking university; the story of how the whole of southern and eastern europes hopes were delayed by the northern branches of the eu and usa is very interesting - it explains why half of europe depends on renewing the silk road more than anything brussels will ever empire over - but the chinese student reaction is strangely calm- we'll share 21st c AI with anyone who wants youth to be the sdg generation -it takes 2 sides to rebuild marco polos silk road - arrividerchi


in britain we took 1968 maths a'levels without electoninc calucators

when i asked my 6th form teacher where i could study comuting and maths- i was told cmuting doest yet exist as a subject to study

in 1972 when i took my ma in statistics at damtp there were still no computers in the department; there was the game of avoiding being run over by steve hwakins whose whell chair sped along narrow corridors at speeds that would get a ticket in an american school car park

so i lucked out in my first full time job- 1973 the uk national development project in computer based learning but still what mit students network 35 years larer is beyond the mindset of old universities; ...

 stanford was california's 5th governor

family lost teenage son to infectious disease while touring europe mid 19th century

dedicated themselves to all california children : purpose of starting up stanford U 

as far as i can see from conversations with boigraphers of von neumann he never got to stanford or berkeley; so it was hugely valuable that macarthy who planted artificial intel labs did so by twinning mit boston (where coding for moon landing was done) and stanford by 1961 where gordon moore was promising by 1965 100 times more programable tech every decade after a massive order from a japanese caluclator form had forced intel to innovate programable chips

returing to studying health and technology fo advancing the human lot


nobody represents 21st c stanford quite like fei-fei li ; just as 1970s stanford depended on gordon moore alumni keeping their promise of 100 times more tech capacity every decade to turn silicon valley into the networking supercentre of the world with one hitch - dreadful infrastructure - when you spiral round bad infrastructure rich get richer capitalises define investment purposes not at all what the stanford family had in mind in committing to nurture all cafifornian children
