While some people visited Cambridge's number 1 maths lab DAMPT to study black holes in space, I have been interested in unique purpose of leaders, organisations and networks on earth. I didnt see my father very often as he was chasing the most exciting stories linked to the scoop of meeting Von Neumann in Princeton 1951 and being told to ask decision makers what would they do with 100 times more tech a decade , a million times more a generation of 30 years. Strangely only one us president kennedy accepted that challenge moon race. I guess that made dad even more focused.
By 1983 this tech scenario was easy to conceive (dad and my book 2025report, chapter 7) but scared the heck out of dad as the first 1180 years of Glasgow's machine 1760-1940 had led to him spending hiis last days as a teenager at war allied bomber command burma campaign
History does seem to sj=how that with new tech -there are those trying to connect good- thoise trying to connect fear and ofetn a far bigger group who are blind because the tech hides (or sunbconsciously diverts) the whole future truth
Anyway a billion poorest vailege women have linked the most purposeful colaborations I expect ever to see -
Is there anything that you cant do as a partner of the most collaborative entreprebneur network bridging enviroinmental , societal and goverance challenges
tell us if you need more information or if you can help with associated pilot projcets such as
Neumann AI Hall of Famew
or how can you help the younbger half of world be the fisrt sustainability generation
|.How did Abed Collabs become world's most empowering|
-he changed aid across former british empire (which hab stunted growth of majority of humans especiaally Asian women); while post war aid was well intended britain had bankrupted itself as last defemce agiamst hitler- so it could declare colonies independent but not change the rotten borders and top down sysatems it had compounded
changing aid started with finding the most trusted partners in solutions ro end starvation and end last mile deaths of infants and mothers- fortunately or no cost solutions were searchable by abed who had been asia's leading young oil company engineer- the challenge was action learning networks - ironically because bangladesh had been colonised by pakistan after india the new nation's government was so poor that it could only reach the 10% who lived in the cities; so bangladesh women were freed by abed to map bottom up relief and human development - abed designed positive cash flow microfranchises wherever possible- where he sought a grant he aimed to find a partner who desperately wanted to solve the same problem - one quarter of all infants were dying in tropical villages of diarrhea- by showing the world's poorest village mothers could solve that UNICEF led by James Grant became the partner that helped design last mile health service which raised life expectancy by 20 years.
..Abed as an engineered blueprinted deep data by hand in a way I have never seen others do manually - if you are going to chaange value chains from vailge bootom to top- you going to need to change hos value is governed witin metavilages, across all vilages, national market leaders, worldwide market (as he did for aid). Not everyone likes the idea that bottom up ESG needs to be connected across society's exchnages of food, health, sfateym education as well as finace and local gov services. But then as we now knbow maths chaos theory is just about an amazon butterfly flappings its wings, its about cirsues like covid (or indeed abusing nature evolutionary rules on climate). If we cant design the most purspoefully colabration networking humans have ever united- we'll be the next dodo. Let's choose who we celebrate now our last chance faces us all
|Among many legacy problems inherited from British Empire across Asia; world war 2 had bankrupt Britain- so many colonies got independence with no transition. Arguably 50 hardest jobs ever pooped up: leading a new nation that had been a colony the day before; weirdly Bangladesh's short straw being assigned to pakistan to lead for 25 yeras 1947-1971 caused the innovation of aid 2.0 from 1971 - the nation's new gov barely had the revenues to organise 10% living in cities and national security : 90% rural peoples were left to networking Bangladesh Rural Advancement Cooperations-fortunatly they united around probably the most qualified and caring chartered accountant 20th C south asia would ever see; he would say it wasnt him but the wmen and those who chose to unite round gifts such as ortal rehydration - he knew where to search for community replicable solutions having been the regional ceo for royal dutch shell until half a million peopke around him were killed by a cyclone and as the work of immediate releif work turned to what next, shell sided with west pakistan army against independence movement- abed flew back to london to sell his putney flat (about 40000$), resign frok shell, and be ready to help with bottom up womens nations building - here are 5 intertgenerational solutions taking half a century to integrate - womens nation building of G1 funance G2 food security G3 health G4 ed G5 massive cooperation women emotional intel and resilience and a segway from centuries of no electricity to 21st C leapfrogging with mobile solar and SDG mapmaking cooperations uniting peoples futures|
