Norman Macrae, having survived teenage navigation of RAF planes bomber command world war 2 over modern-day myanmar/bangladesh, joined The Economist in 1949, and retired as the deputy editor of what he called "the world's favourite viewspaper" in 1988. During that time, he wrote extensively on the future of society and the impact of technology. Norman foresaw species sustainability as being determined by post-colonial and virtual mapmaking- 5G 4G 3G 2G 1G 0G if 60s tech could race to moon and Moore alumni promised 100 times more machine intel every decade TO 2025, let's end poverty mediating/educating a world of loving each others' children- so that wherever the next millennials girl is born she enjoys great chance to thrive.

Soon Norman was celebrating his wartime enemy's rising engineers and win-win sme supply chains across far east and very concerned that tod down constitutions english speaking nations led by political bureaucrats wasn't fit for entrepreneurial revolution-he co-opted a young romani prodi to translate Economist 1976 ER survey into multilingual formats

Amongst some of his more outlandish claims: that governments would not only reverse the nationalisation process and denationalise formerly private industries, but would also sell industries and services that had been state operated for so long that it seemed impossible that they could be run by private companies. A pioneer before the pioneers, Macrae imagined privatised and competing telecommunications and utility companies improving service levels and reducing prices.

When others saw arms build-ups as heralding World War III, Macrae predicted the fall of the Berlin Wall by the end of the 1980's.

The Norman Macrae Archive serves as an on-line library, hosting a growing collection of Macrae articles, newspaper columns and highlights from his books. We hope that you find the articles thought provoking and zoom, twitter or question us - norman's son chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

| Saving the Internet—and all the commons it makes The ninth and worst enclosure is the one inside our heads. Because, if we think the Internet is something we use by grace of Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Google and “providers” such as phone and cable companies, we’re only helping all those companies contain the Internet’s usefulness inside their walled gardens.
Not understanding the Internet can result in problems similar to ones

we suffer by not understanding common pool resources such as the atmosphere, the oceans, and the Earth itself.

    From plight to promise

    The following is an excerpt from a blog post by D-Lab associate director Kofi Taha, "Reflections on on an earthquake: from plight to promise."

    I feel deeply privileged to be part of D-Lab where we collectively try to learn how to best answer the call to act, not only in moments of dramatic crisis, but also in response to the quiet crises that threaten opportunity and well being every day  for half the world's population. Through our small program  where an exciting mixture of students, staff, faculty, alumni and international collaborators from the public and private sector regularly interact with creative force  we will only touch a tiny fraction of the need we speak of when discussing "global poverty," but without a doubt, we are learning more everyday about moving from plight to promise. I invite you to explore the wide range of ways we pursue this knowledge, many of which are highlighted below. 
               - Kofi Taha, Associate Director, MIT D-Lab

    Attracting female engineers - the D-Lab way

    "At the interdisciplinary D-Lab at M.I.T., which focuses on developing “technologies that improve the lives of people living in poverty,” 74 percent of over 230 enrolled students this past year were women. This makes the D-Lab one of the few engineering initiatives in the country that has a severalfold higher enrollment of women than men. . . It is not just about gender equity — it is about doing better engineering for us all." Read full New York Times article.

    D-Lab Spring Student Showcase, May 8

    What are students working on D-Lab this semester?

    Scale-Ups Fellow Retreat

    Each year, D-Lab Scale-Ups brings together a group of past and current fellows for a retreat and to attend the MIT Scaling Development Ventures conference. Fellows from India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Zambia, Ghana, and US-based fellows came together to learn from each other and from invited guests. Workshops focused on decisions facing fellows about manufacturing and how fellows can make their ventures investment-ready. This year, fellows also got to meet with members of the MIT Practical Impact Alliance. Read more.

    D-Lab Biomass Fuel & Stoves Group

    Traditional means of cooking pose acute and chronic health risks, introduce time burdens on women and children, contribute to unsustainable harvest of forests, and in many cases, represent a significant cost burden on base of the economic pyramid households. D-Lab is committed to addressing these issues through:
    • Applied research to evaluate existing fuel and stove technology and design improved solutions
    • Supporting a community of social entrepreneurs who are supplying clean fuels and stoves to their communities
    • Engaging in international agreements to increase the quality, availability and sustained adoption of clean cooking technology
    Learn more about the D-Lab Biomass Fuel & Cookstoves group including research areas, testing capabilities, and partners!

    Advancing lean research in international development

    Academics, researchers, practitioners, and donors from leading institutions in international development came together in April for a the second meeting organized by the D-Lab and Tufts Lean Research team, which has established principles for conducting human-centered field research. Visit the Lean Research webpage to download the Lean Research Framework and the draft working paper, and to sign the Lean Research Declaration! Read MIT News article.
