hubs and supercities

hubs were new to us in london when we started researching the good hub guide in 2004
some of the history below
today our view is 2 kinds of hubs need twinning across cities so that we can linkin the greatest #learninggeneration

permission "needs" hubs- deep in a community - often a youth after hours space that schooling system doesnt offer

the hubs with the greatest coders

we first started publishing the good hub guide in 2007 -our model was a bit like the consumers association good food guide - we wanted potential customers to report how collaborative hubs really were - the difference was -we didnt know then and dont know now - whether most economic hubs are virtual or real- it also seems that it depends how many you aim to collaboratively scale . For example if you can afford to plant 100000 like Mhammad Yunus achieved with TheGrameenBank in Bangladesh then you start with real places - the poorest villages in the world to be your social labs- then you invite all the most massively resourced technologists to come visit and linkin to solving one of human sustainability's biggest challenges
