for many years i had a dream that the greatest educational revolutionaries i had personalay met - eg gordon dryden, taddy blecher, the gandhi family at lucknow would co-launch microeducationsummit with sir fazle abed out of Bangladesh - in fact my family's connections with gordon go back 33 years (ie longer than any educational or open tech great) - while there are some people father mentored who now have high positions in uk and usa since even earlier times eg roman prodi (italy, European Union) and mary robinsiorn (Ireland and earth institute) since 1976, none of these people credit my family's work as relevant to what they now perform (this is strange to me because his curriculum of entrepreurail revolution since 1972 is the lpnly wesgtern system that can connect woth milelnailsustaonablity networking being the most wonderful time to be alive for their local youth or youth linkedin globally especially the extreme challnges those workinhg on girl empowerment out of exytreme poverty face)

online library of norman macrae--

i love gordon dryden's life work even though it seems that as these late 2010s spin ever more chaotically and away from all my father's work at the Economist, living on other sides of the wprld there is no way we can find a win-0win between the youth we most urgently want to help co-cteate livelihoods with locally -

in new zealand www.the is the only movement directly inspired by meeting my fathers 1984 future history on how education would save or ruin millennials world

gordon's tragedy is while his book sold 10 milion copies to chiense fa,ilies in teh 1990s he actually made negative earnings from this dud to losing a copyright battle with the publisher- this thye impoacyt of his ideas never grew in china in spiute of one nationwide braodcast- his impact on chnaging educational system therefore has nkot be massive but you can find examples - in some new zealand schools, in some singapore schools, in part of the internatioanl baccalaureate curriculum - 

gordon is now in his mid 80s so tarely able top travel and this not linked into the great education summits spaces such as wise- he did go to mexico hoping that a wikipedia in education summit would go well but found that wkiipedia's inner netwprks were very exclusive ( the one person i trust to help explore whether wikipedia coyuld ever help is ab whose expoerience of wikipedia started in india vilages then india mit media lab and has not got him a scholarship trop interview everyone in mit/boston

gordon helped connections with ying lowrey and so

he reported that new zealand and autrali have very actiove dialogues going with china and particularly jack ma- on the one side they want youth to connect with all positive digital and infrastructore futruires on the other hand both copuntries are afraid of all their favorite places bveing taken over by richest chiense who can afford to pay anything for homes

when i think of gordon , i think of everyone in new zealand or ausyrial who has inpsoired me over the years- when i was based in london up to 2006 i reguklarly met several of them but I just dont have the funds to connect locally with oz and nz

jack yan a cheinse new zealnaders interested in fashion branding and youth

paul komesaroff - in melbourne of several medical heroes conecetd to george patton who amy listened to at the wprld bank youth in development event; paul also loves chiense medicine and cultiral reconcilaition; there was a tech innovarion authgor in ausytrial whose catalogue of innovators included me and the yokois which is where i first met hiro and hos brother; they inytroduced me to extraordiary work at university of tokyu; also they sponsored chilka arts olym;piads - amy's firts international louting where we also met billy; she continued to tour san diegoi with hioro and then miko


gordon does not understand hiw difficult it is to free american youth from all of media and big politicins- hence his conversations on how to convert trump dont always show an optimistric pattern

example from may 2017

we (eg every chinese person/girl, student and ma-compatible solution i can find) are working hard to turn america first into american people need to understand what the win-win is of any particular approach


geopolitics and rotten us media got top the stage that not even us politicains had a clue what the win-win was of any foreign initiatives


its not that i hold our much hope of converting trump but china offers a continuos way to keep reassessing this - the point is all american politicians and media needed converting if american youth are not to have to bail out everyone one of the sytsem misrakes from broken banks, broken mega-digital infrastructures, war games etc


please note that where i use the wopord american i culd go more braodly and say reform is needed in any english-speaking analysis of collaborating round both growth and sustainability so youth startong with thise in places that were previously most disconnecetd (thanks to smart education) have better prospects than elders - my fathers core editorial rule of everything he ever reported

trump is shaking up east in ways that could yet save american youth but its politically incorrect to say so- fortunately that means becoming one of trumps sources on china may yet be possible
