Connecting Sudan. Now, not later.

The Global Transaction Strategy says:

Four major flows must proceed over the next several decades if globalization is to continue its advance and the Gap is to be shrunk. The U.S. government and its allies in the Core must enable and balance all four of these flows, for the disruption of one will damage the others, leaving the global economy and security environment vulnerable to the sort of system perturbations witnessed in connection with Sept. 11.
The four flows -- strategic strands of connectivity -- are: People, Energy, Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), and Security.

People have to flow from the Gap to the Core, as the latter ages demographically.

Energy has to flow from the Gap to the New Core especially (specifically, Developing Asia), where energy use will double in the next two decades.

Foreign direct investment needs to flow from the Old Core (U.S., Europe, Japan) to the New Core (especially China, Russia, and India) in order to enable their further integration into the Core.

Finally, security has to flow from the Old Core (especially from the system Leviathan known as the U.S.) to the Gap, with a special emphasis in the near- and mid-term on the Middle East due to its central role as breeding ground for transnational terrorism and as the major source of energy for Developing Asia.

So here's my question: Can we find strategically useful information that provides the justification for decision makers in the U.S. government and its allies in the Core to choose a win/win scenario allowing Sudan to find its way?

This ain't no ordinary distraction

Bergin's running around the docks, singing whatever tunes pass through his little birdy brain... Mature? You want mature? You can't handle mature!

What do we want to know?

And how will that inform us?

Ethan Zuckerman writes:

Countries in red were better represented in the blogosphere than in Google news; in blue, were less well represented. The maps suggests that, for the most part, folks in the blogosphere talk about Africa, Central Asia, Eastern Europe and parts of Latin America less than the media sources covered by Google News do.

So, my question to everyone is, What do we want to know? and How will that inform us?

BloggerCon 2004: The take away

From "automatic response" to "Action"

The Master gives me tools
And other Masters
Who give me tools.

But the vision,
The vision comes from the universe.
So now we build the bridge.

"Particpate... react... create... connect"
Thanks, Meg.
