Who's Wish Who takes place annually in CA hosted by ted.com (currently a top 3 world sustainability meeting format). Here's a review of some wish winners and what happened next

Larry Brilliant ( a medic extraordinaire) wished (early 2006) 

You are the Genie! Grant Larry's wishes ›› we'd all join round the net proactively to warn people of imminent disasters and provide much more relevant warning of plagues (historically HIV, whatever comes next in a highly connected world!). Since making this wish he's been granted the job of being google.org's leader and most networked person

Help valuetrue be the open source clearing for the peoples top 100 nominations of empowerment/sustainabilty videos http://www.valuetrue.com/home/community.cfm ; other collaborations sought at valuetrue:

open source the first worlf citizen travel guide- crisis context = learning http://www.valuetrue.com/home/default.cfm

vote which global market sectors include even one sustainability investment leader http://www.valuetrue.com/home/glossary.cfm?letter=B

 

Hi John
 
I am copying a few other collaborative people in case they wish to comment on your interesting questions. I wish I had fuller answers- I guess this is a search in rapid progress. Are you able to send me a list of your 40 authors -perhaps I can put a free notice  and google search of the 40  -up at http://citizenagency.tv
 
peter in new york is already a user at lulu with his search on empowerment http://tr-ac-net.org -an emerging "ebay" of empowerment projects and how they need to fit together in opposite ways to global-down aid;
 
tav who after a 7 year opus is aiming to launch the world's most collaborative software "trust mapping" which 1000 Londoners are signing up to preview/network next month around
and sofia who so far has been my main co-interviewer of people who are making collaboration wishes around the world
 
You can see sofia's interview of Taddy Blecher of the free university CIDA in Johannesburg at this bookmark or if you will give me your snailmail I'll post you are first travel guide to learning which we published 2 days ago!
also at valuetrue I am trying to pre-empt anyone not open from cataloguing the current top 100 empowerment youtubes - nominations welcome http://www.valuetrue.com/home/community.cfm
Longer term what I am looking for is a publisher who understands that there are now some open source materials particular in the collaboration-empowerment areas of humanitarian endeavour where networks/communitioes want colaboration wishes distributed in real time is but where a printed compendium -eg the first 10 interviews of the same open change world impact as taddy's wishes - could also sell to the more traditional decision-makers who like books printed
 
Richard at solaroof whose inventors network has -unless you know better - the main collaboration product of our life and times photosynthesis of abundant clean energy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CToYjQFRxXE
 
WE already have about 3 books worth where we are looking for such a publisher. As well as collaboration wishes the second type of material I want to publish is open source methods such as the new systemic audits of sustainability investment that are mathematically the exact opposite of counting up how much money one side has taken in separated historic quarters. In this regard Alan Mitchell and I are just completing 7 years of work on the first fieldbook of systemic approaches to sustain ability investment. This also matched the goals of eg Muhhamad Yunus when he encourages all to open up a social business enterprise stockmarket
 
I also use micro-tv webs to interface with the alumni of te great collabopratoprs of the days:
eg http://grameen.tv http://cidaworld.tv http://brac.tv  http://hi-trust.tv -feedback from users of these web gives me more reason why for advocating the urgent need to develop collaborative publishing so that we can make sure all our social network maps are the highest trust possible 
 
Though London is my main collaboration networking city, I am mainly based in Washington Dc region
 
Before my dad finished 40 years of deputy editing The Economist in the 1980s, he and I wrote a futire history on would the netwoek generation 1984-2024 be the sustainable one or the terminator one of our species ; we forecast that the next 5 years would be absolutely critical; can we integrate local societies around the world through above zero-sum collaboration economics http://www.normanmacrae.com/netfuture.html
 
as its my dad's 85th in 2008 and the 25th year of our future history, we invite up to 1000 people to cone to his party each bringing an open colabopration project with them - please pass on the invitation if such a party makes timely common sense http://erworld.tv http://passports.jp  http://worldcitizen.tv http://citizenagency.tv
 
Above all I find www.facebook.com the space to be but it takes some time using. If you get to it in spite of the long profile, you only need to fill in about 4 things - then fron d me and I can start guiding you round groups. One of the interesting gamnes going on is that groups adopt a name - let us say PBS broadcasting - then as freinds of PBS start discussing what they would really like to see it do. I am also very keen on Muhammad Yunus virtual copmmunities but they are just morphing right now so preobably best to link you once I have seen the morph!
 
cheers

There are 4 future history endings to the 21st C. As my daughter is 9 year old: I find the first three of these compound futures utterly unacceptable and invite you to mail me at info@worldcitizen.tv if you do too:

Dinosaur: means the whole human species will be as dead as the dodo. Tell us who's "death of birth" story interests you most. I'm a fan of Chairman Ray Anderson, and this video. In it, he explains not only how all corporations -as key systems in  productive and demanding networks of human relationships - can help humanity prevent the "dinosaur ending" but also how those corporations who value human life will compound the most profits too. It's a myth that sustainability business investments don't do well by doing good. But what is required is consistent investment through time as all entreprenurial and economic systems are intended be, not exercises in how much can you reap or rape from the world every last quarter. All the true economists have mapped how healthy societies beget strong economies, NOT  vice versa.

Shark: means that there will be a world of less than a billion people, most enslaved to the greediest and nastiest men. It is not for nothing that the Spectre villains in James Bond films kept pet sharks. Sharks sense how to make a human or financial killing at many miles - they literally are the best at smelling blood as well as having  blood-thirsty greeds. I am by no means claiming that most large organisational boardrooms are populated by sharks. But as a mathematician and investigator of Unseen Wealth research I am weary of hearing over 20 years of protests that we are ignorant of the system law : if  leadership only optimises how much money speculators take out from the last quarter's spreadsheet,  the organisation's  purpose will be full of holes than a pantomime dame's leaking bucket. Worse over time what you exclude from governing a system is what you compound the destruction of. That's why any boardroom who does not want to see its business case transparently audited for sustainability henceforth swims with the sharks or is blinded by butterflies.

Butterflies tell the wrong stories about system or network models of how to map the whole before getting boxed into parts. Butterflies making system patterns sound complex or chaotic beyond human wit. Inconveniently, this gives the manager the perfect excuse to say that sytsem transformation cannot be succesful.  Their end consequence is also likely to end with less than a million beings living, but this time survivors wll all be back in the cave age.  As the world gets more interconnected, what we need to map is exactly how do get interconnected in each other's most vital compound risks or joys. We do need to prevent the next HIV from spreading virally beyond early cases especially if it is transmitted by contagious birds. Grassroots in frastructures needed little more than a primitive mobile telephone network around Tsunami coastlines to prevent deaths of thos who were 5 hours away from the wave even if those nearest the wave's origin could not have ben alerted. We need to reduce online degrees of separation to zero when the information to be passed through us humans is life critical in its flows. Conversely, there are many types of active learning that multiply value in use instead of gettin g consumed up the way in dustrial things always were. The two great untruths told by the butterfly brigade:

1) that there is one primary way of thinking or doing systems- by definition systemic approaches interface and integrate around molecular subsystems; one simple consequence of this organsiationally is a lot more interdisciplinary flows are needed for the  service economy  organsiational system to wholly empower trust and other entrepreneurial energies

2) that my life -or yours - will be impacted on the other side of the world by a butterfly flapping its wing. This ludicrous insult to logic should not however lead anyone to believe that we can lose all the world's rainforests and expect climate equilibrium to be sustained.

Lion-Child - and I would delight in hearing of other identifications, since this is the truly important story of the four and merits every type of cross-cultural rendering you all can imagine - is about the collaboration characters we will need to flourish if 6+ billion humans are to thrive. Quite a simple thing to achieve if we are as truly curious as a child, as courageous as a lioness in protecting her young, and cherish the pride in community wellbeing as much as lions do.


 

Ideas for 24 Goals for the 24 Days PowWow on will humanity invest in Sustainability in Time

I gather that some goals gave already been decided. Numbers do not denote order:
 
Activity Goals
G1 Plant 24 intercity hubs around the world using Islington hub and espian plex tools as  strawman infrastructure for local adaptation
 
G2 Demand that London's Mayor etc open up sufficient spaces in public building for 90 day summer debate of sustainability issues
 
G3 Develop a map of all hubs and learning houses - ie to include the 24 homegrown ones, and others out there eg Brazil has at least two www.catcomm.org
London has the house www.learninghouse.biz  
 
G4 Get the 24 hubs to start editing their own crisis learning travel guide that Sofia is producing 2007 version of which incidentally will include a start up map of hubs; other contents in this include Harrison Owen Open Space for children; Gandhi family debriefings from the world's largest school and 1 million oneworld alumni; challenges of starting up CIDA's free university
 
G5 How can we go beyond the learning guide to a meeting  format trialled by London and for replication in any city Learning500 (see mail of sat feb 3 addendum Sunita Gandhi)
 
G6 invite 24 days participants to nominate 15 entries of book of the 200 most trusted collaboration entrepreneurs of 2008 , with particular foci on the 7 sustainability crises which become irreversible if they're not turning round by 2012 see pic attached
 
G7 The top 4 outcome crises in the picture are a direct match with Larry Brilliant’s 4 main goals for progressing the work of google.org - how do we establish b ridges with that - he states these goals at this video minute 14 http://webcast.ucsd.edu:8080/ramgen/UCSD_TV/11645.rm
 
G8 How do we mobilise all new economists and sustainability investors around the empowerment development economics revolution Sir Nick Stern is leading which from May will be out of the London School of Economics- what London student networks already exist to interact positively with Sir Nick; how can we unite oxbridge and Indian alumni too (since eg Sir Nick's curricula is parallel to that Manmohan Singh has been pioneering since his Cambridge days in the 1950s and blends with the Entrepreneurial Revolution trilogy of my father). How do we ensure that the debate on how to spend 1% of economies to save 20% does not get greenwashed by all the old vested interests; the worst scenario being that the 1% is wholly wasted while an image of saving the climate lulls us into false security
 
G9 How could we outline the definitive entrepreneurial, peace network (open systems , biomass) curricula that all new age universities and serve the world alumni need (eg blend this with the Sir Richard Branson entrepreneur school at Cida, the India alumni of city Montessori etc)    
 
G10 How do we popularise the 4 end states of sustainability - eg Dinosaur (death of birth), Shark (1 million enslaved by a few James Bond Spectre Villains), Butterfly probably 1 million cavemen through  telling system stories the wrong way (I'll never be impacted by a butterfly's wing but could from nuclear wave or terror wave or birdflu or Greenland unhinging) , LionChild (or whatever is your identity) of 6+ billion people collaborating around a higher order system of sustainability which fairly integrates every locality into globalisation. How do we own the vocabulary so that these 4 identities become part of worldwide chat.
 
G11 How do we identify journalist for humanity who care about at least one of the 7 above crises as reaching irreversibility by 2012 if we don’t fix them now
 
G12 How do we start developing supporters clubs around collaboration entrepreneurs connecting eg all the best ideas that Yunus is using - thegreenchildren.org - a British pop-spokesgroup for Grameen; the microcreditsummit as one of the top 10 world citizen meeting formats; the extension of microcredit as the perfect concept to clean up the banking market into other concepts designed to partner trillion dollar global markets until they stop externalising destruction of each market's deepest human purpose (see trillion dollar audit game - left an early copy with you, otherwise it will emerge at http://worldcitizen.tv and is backed up by the earlier book Alan was writing with me)
