isabella@unacknowledgedgiant.com: Can you help girls co-create sustainability's 3 billion new jobs: renew every community, renew planet, humanise exponential impacts of 1000 times more commnstech than 1946 ? Most exciting times to be alive : Over next decade (3 generations – half of world being girls & boys under 30, their parents and grandparents) will determine whether human race is sustainable.
Do you see why education must change way beyond 300 hundred old classrooms to empower girls to explore far more than history can examine? NB by 1969 about 12 times more comstech had led a small network of men to race to the moon while almost half of girls were too poor to have access to electricity grids let alone any progress of 250 years of Industrial Revolution. Inspired by miraculous developments in China and Bangladesh, GirlsBeltRoad invites every community to celebrate going beyond win-lose era of colonisation and carbonisation. Diarise sustainability's urgent search for world record jobs creators; empower girls to lift up half the sky by transforming orbits of education and economies back to celebrating sutsainability of everyone. Recommendation listen to why China's richjest technologist values LoveQ then dare to play the WRJC game of fives with everyone you network with. Girls stories of goodwill's 7 social wonders in on : bankers, food workers, health servants, educators, hi-trust media designers, disaster relief connectors, public service.

Obituaries

Its 40+ years since my father http://normanmacrrae.ning.com started the search for open education entrepreneurial revolutionaries at The Economist. Both our lives were irrevocably changed when we became involved in 1972 with students' early digital learning experiments linking in universities in North of England (grandly called UK national Development Project in Computer Assisted learning)

With respect to Bill Drayton -who lent on my father's belief that economics is only useful when it values youthful entrepreneurs- I do not recommend social entrepreneurship to youth wherever 

  1. it fails to connect with open education as the opportunity for net generation to be 10 times more productive, peaceful and sustainable than humanly possible before
  2. win-win-win business modeling isn't communally celebrated and openly replicated as far as humanly possible


Some relatively unacknowledged favorites in addition to Taddy Blecher are: 
The Gandhi family at http://cmseducation.org and http://jagdishgandhi.org 
The New Zealand and Chinese revolution linked in to Gordon Dryden athttp://thelearningweb.net 
The evolution of dialogues at MIT's new media lab from founder Negropronte's $100 atop to Joi Ito's recent contributions at http://open.media.mit.edu/ ; similarly the whole of open education and open technology movement that MIT has nurtured around the integrity of Berners Lee

Of course we love Khan Academy and the edgy segment of partners in MOOC (bravo coursera's Koller) who want to see millions of youth viralise 9 minutehttp://normanmacrae.ning.com/forum/topics/the-search-for-top-1000-ola-s-can-be-world-s-number-1-gamechanger training modules they have never had a chance to OLA before..
