Can you help celebrate the most wonderful news from the middle east region - OMAGINE



OmagineOman مشروع أوماجين

Norman Macrae "The Economist's UG"- of the world's top 20 job creating ideas in Muhammad Yunus new book (creating the wprld we want  future of capitalism 2008) - it could be that developing cox's bazaar as a socially owned superport will have even more dramatic consequences for peacemaking economists than banking a billiion unbanked or green energising a billion off electricity's grids. Because it will be most joyful to viralise out of any collaborative university with a thriving entrepreneurial future ...

When I first heard of Civil Engineer's Muftah Benomran's Omagine in 2003 it was the most timely and exciting innovation I had ever heard of as a MA in statistics from Cambridge University who has researched social innovations

Accidentally my first job in 1972 was with UK's National development project for computer assisted learning which caused my father Norman Macrae at The Economist to spend the rest of his life debating the greatest worldwide entrepreneurial revolution ever to hit  one generation the coming of the internet and a borderless global village world- an idea that Japan helped the whole of the Eastern hemisphere to relish imaginative freedoms

Even as it caused tv mass media big brothers in the west to behave in the least trustworthy ways humans have ever been mediated, banked or bossed around through the least sustainable mathematical audits ever computed ( margaret blair had published unseen wealth with brookings and georgetown in 2000 only to have its debates on compound risk censored by the incoming administration from texas sponsored by its exxons and enrons and other non-peaceful industry sectors)

not the most luxury walled off offices and palaces but the world favorite open learning  campus and pro-youth summit centre- one engineered around 7 wonders of the 21st c such as being energised by photosynthesis (if big science hadnt gone nuclear in the warring 1940s father's bigraphy of von neumann makes it pretty clear that he would have preferred to live longer popularising photosynthesis as his twin legacy to along with fathering the modern day computer's open system architecture) out of princeton and dabbling with models of the neurally networked brain out of yale

Muftah Benomran is a civil engineer with an outwardly successful career serving middle east sultans except that Omagine is what he dreamt of building . By 2003 Londoners appalled by the cultural superficiality of bush and blair made omagine a dream conversation to word of mouth and hub. Yet it has taken Muftah 11 years of false leads and persistence to come up with today's celebration commissioning from the state of oman. The rest is the future of how could each of our greatest collaboration wished potentially connect humanity through Muftah's open architecture. If I have chosen the wrong words to introduce omagine, blame me as the messenger not the opportunity you could enjoy by working through how to partner with muftah and imagining every future that can linkin out of oman's open space for designing partnerships around millennials goals

If i understand john is in oregon - one of 7 states my family in small way helped yunus challenge to state wide college student competitions -open source solutions needed 2009-2013 to go sustainably beyond subprime 
 paul is in brighton area - he mentions jack martin leith who was first host of a london open space I attended 2000; i know how 2000-2006  after 9/11 developed open space in London and south england , hubs , be the change- personally 2005 was a worst year for me my main open space associate colin morley was killed in 7/7; dads cancer was announced termina; my 8 yaer old daughter was being bullied in us school, and attending make poverty hostory's maion foundation ,eetings in london withh bbc red nose they were talking fund raising not solutions educatirs needed to distribute; and there was no undesranding of web 2 (mobile satabase race)
Is this enough to see wht metaverse designers , open space faciltatirs and those helpoing gureres chnage government need each other
Do we have a map of regional oipen space faciliraotrs who might want to deepen this discussion

 I was lucky that one person connecetd me with bangladesh which I had never been to. It turned out vilage women builth that nation byparticpating weekly in open space circles. This began eoiund 15000 vilage homes rebuilt after war had faletened them. There were 3 main types of vialfe circles - food, health/sanitaion, crafts and eg social forestry to earn trade with city. The purpose to help illiterate vilage mothers design small busienss micrfranchise in these 3 applicatiuon circles geared to end tens of mothers dying weekly of sravation and scores of infants dying of dehtdartion. I mention this because the bbc as world's number 1 public braidacster did endless harm by descriging this system wrongly - I monitired that endles harm from 2007. I dont like facebook but I am redesigning an economics grioup i posted in 2008 but forgota bout for 15 yeras; Glasgow feeinds & my my main blog on scottosh economics moral semntiments is
maybe I am wrong but at 71,  i see collision of metaverse and open space as last best chance- of course its very contextually geographbically and by whar issue under 30s half of wporld face first to resov]=lve comapred with ,ess my generation has spun
I am just a mathematicains so I love graet simple faciliation but dont do it muself though as marhet researcher and caluer of leadeship purspoe its ceteinaly in my opinion searching toolbag
I guess I am confused - relatively few open spaces seem, to masively craetre move,mensts which immediately lead to emplyment for thios who have particpp;ated- whn i have tried to ask harrison about this - i undersyand examples of follow through success include
eg when atalantolym[ics was 6 montsh be]hind schedule so needed os solutions
ironically I ddont believe hackathos etc during era of web1,2 have really used open space- often the hakathon has a bif digital sponsor
so if I am right its al to play fpor - how do we get best of open space , web 3 and live.lihood education

Is it just 3 of us or do you think otehrs are interested? based in dc i really see new york as only affoedable space so for me its usefil that has proven how to design meta-conference and camous spaces and applies open space as part of its mix; amd I am trying tp connect all new york friends through the omnly part pf teh Un taht I matehmatically uinderstand gov2.0 by accident since 2016 have ben at main meeting of this in ny and geeva and at zooms

may need to be short and long version of this question if its to help with millennials being first sustainability generation
Shortish Version 
Over least 12 months have talked to people designing metaverse to maximise millennials changing education and connect positive emotional intel some of call womens kindness (one ny billionaire is launching her next leap on kindness on valentines day) with the help of my favorite recording studio in NY
NY first became my fav place in USA when 9 brave educators (eg world bank jim kim) in 2016 told the UN hq that the sdgs were unteachable without change to every way learning time is spent - that has become Before this the UN had nothing for me coming from 4 generations of diaspora scots who prefer not to spend life's time on top down system design 
another asian new yorker Home | k20 Educators is in my searches a mile ahead in designing virtual spaces so youth don't need to be tied to costs (and silos) of physical conference centres or lectures driven by costly certificates -
 she has designed in about 4 best of meta-tools - eg augmented reality, game designs, blockchain to own what fashion or solutions you create or open source; 
AND open space
so short question who might want to chat with her (of course you are welcome to contact her direct) but my new york friends are trying to linkin a calendar of stuff through 2023 where we aim to help communities take back the UN (or at least youth scaling sdg solutions across communities)
so as one example march 21 to 25 has first water-sanitation-habitat summit at hq for 20 yeras and i know jack sim from singapore who is number1 in telling stories on value of toilets; jack's own story includes selling his 40 companies in 1999 and spending the last 23 years or cooperation solutions BOP Hub 
most of our new york meta- diary links in something asians are doing because they have for many reasons not seen the web as dominated by advertising;
