isabella@unacknowledgedgiant.com: Can you help co-create sustainability's 3 billion new jobs? Most exciting times to be alive :Over next decade (three generations – the half of the world aged under 30, their parents and grandparents) determine whether human race is sustainable. Spending 4000+ times more on Communications Technologies than 1946 –as compound consequence of doubling CT spends every 7 years. During first 250 years of industrial revolution started by invention of steam engines in Britain 1712, the opportunity to innovate was unevenly distributed geographically. Some peoples progressed health and wealth over 100 fold, others remained trapped in poverty barely subsisting. By 1960s while some people were racing to the moon, about a third of the world was living in villages with no electricity grids, no roads, no running water, no sanitation systems.

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..
