No longer is it necessary to pay attention to my 2019-2020 ramblings/warnings of a global economic reset. Instead, as of June 3, 2020, you can now hear it directly from the source: the World Economic Forum (#WEF).

#5G from space: The role of satellites in 5G

"5G has arrived, and new equipment is currently being installed in densely populated cities across the globe."

#COVID19 #MagicTricks

"In many cases, the demand for 5G capacity is exceeding #infrastructure improvements, especially in sparsely populated areas that are difficult to access."
"With the next generation of satellites – built from #5G architecture – they will integrate with networks to manage connectivity to cars, vessels, airplanes and other #IoT devices in remote and rural areas."

1/12 Thread on our new report: 'Becoming more open: the view from four European cities'🏙️
theodi.org/article/becomi… #opencities #smartcities

@bsnaith_ from the 'open #cities' team is going to take you through some of the key points from the report...
2/12 All four of these cities – #Amsterdam, #Gdańsk, #Hamburg and #Helsinki – have made significant progress in the move towards becoming open cities. The report shares how they're developing data infrastructure, training staff, engaging with citizens and fostering innovation.
3/12 The report talks about some of the challenges of using #data and #technology, but also how being open and being trustworthy with data can produce better services for citizens, businesses and communities.

#Storytelling.

Tonight I'm going to share highlights from the 2010 "Scenarios for the Future of Technology & Int'l Development" report produced by The Rockefeller Foundation & Global Business Network. Not just the "Lock Step" scenario, but all 4 scenarios. [54 page report]
Following Event 201 (Oct 18 2019), we must concede that the ruling class has been gifted with phenomenal and prophetic intuitions & insights. (They truly are the chosen ones.) Thus it is worthwhile, even mandatory, to study their scenario exercises & simulations.
"We believe that scenario planning has great potential for use in philanthropy to identify unique interventions... scenario planning allows us to achieve impact more effectively." [p 4]

"The Green New Deal" is going to take movement tactics. Bullshit. It's global - sitting in the wings. Your consent is being engineered. Spending billions to have you demand & "fight" for it. They play with you like a cat plays with a mouse before it decapitates it. For fun.
Who else is tasked with building the social license required to implement the Global Green New Deal?

Let's start with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, & May Boeve, Executive Director of 350-DOT-org.

In my excitement on this stride from @SimShagaya and @uLessonApp, I couldn't stop thinking what if Plateau state could become that state I desire to be in.

So I decided to share some of my ideas to @PlStateGovt.

A #thread.
1. Build on the strides of @SimShagaya & @uLessonApp by laying the foundation of the second Science and Technology ecosystem in Nigeria. The first was built by Jim Nwobodo, fmr Gov of the old Anambra state. Learn from it. It was shortlived but eventful. /1
Plateau has university, polytechnics, technical and vocational schools which are fundamental to sustaining the ecosystem and train talents for a modern economy and government. /2

Querida presidenta @IdiazAyuso, antes de “ir a por el #MWC” puede empezar preguntándose por qué es un éxito cada vez mayor desde que aterrizó en Barcelona el año 2006.
Le cuento:👇🏻

ccma.cat/324/diaz-ayuso…
Mientras en Cannes reunía a 35.000 visitantes, el primer MWC en #Barcelona del 2006 ya registró más de 50.000 asistentes atraídos por su nuevo emplazamiento en una ciudad mediterránea, abierta y con un recinto ferial de primer nivel. En 2019 fueron 109.000 y 2.400 expositores.
Cada año ha crecido el número de asistentes y expositores. Pero no solo ha crecido una feria, se ha formado todo un ecosistema a su alrededor impulsado por la colaboración publicoprivada entre @govern, @MWCapital, @bcn_ajuntament y miles de empresas.

This is Leonardo da Vinci's design for a 'smart city' that was centuries ahead of its time
» weforum.org/agenda/2019/05…
Leonardo wanted a comfortable and spacious city, with well-ordered streets and architecture. Today, his ideas actually suggest a way forward for urban planning.
A new study shows just how beneficial remote working can be
» weforum.org/agenda/2019/08…
Companies that let their workers decide where and when to do their jobs increase employee productivity, reduce turnover, and lower organizational costs.
#futureofwork #Employment #Productivity
Where people work the longest – and shortest
» weforum.org/agenda/2019/03…
People end up producing just as much, with higher quality and creativity, and they are also more loyal to the organizations that are willing to give them flexibility to care about their lives outside of work.

Just like clockwork. World Economic Forum - the movie.

On October 28, 2019, the documentary The Forum, opened the 62nd edition of German documentary festival (DOK Leipzig).

Because "to change everything, we need everyone".

Director Marcus Vetter: "Eventually we have to overcome some of our preconceptions. The elite may not appear as evil as we think they are. There are good and bad people..."
con't: "The film is asking the question, 'Is there not maybe still a middle way, one in which everyone comes together instead of separating from one another?'"

1/ Delighted to report that Newsbreak 43 with Frederic Laroche on Monday, October 14, 2019 has produced immediate effect for the better in Frederic's situation. Frederic spoke w. me abt escalated Neuro DEW attacks & apparent mobbing, swarming, barricading.
2/ A key part of his report covered bobcat-style trucks, other equipment used to block parts of road, & pulled over to side, w. he snapshotted. (Many have reported EMF emitters hidden in construction trucks.) He reported increased emf attacks, neurotech after home-crisis w. ex.
3/ Frederic reports he was subjected to immediate DEW/neuro retaliation after Newsbreak 43, so went to the woods nearby, minus cellphone, and was able to sleep (something he has been reporting he was unable to do, thx to continued, escalated attacks recently.) But also, next morn

Since July I've written 47 posts analyzing Sidewalk Labs' plans for Toronto, with my final post (barring some new twist) coming on Friday. So it's an appropriate time for some reflections.

I'm not sure that Torontonians realize the extent to which other countries are following, often in disbelief, the ongoing #Quayside debacle (which is what it is by any objective measure).
Over the past yr I've made several presentations in Europe to smart-city and internet scholars re Quayside. To a person they expressed disbelief that any of this, from the shoddy RFP to the Potemkin consultations to playing fast and loose with data definitions, is even happening.

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.

#China built a surveillance database on Americans from stolen/hacked data, such as the #OPM hack, and some US software developers helped them build & implement it.

I’d love to know who those (treasonous, IMO) developers were.
According to the insider, the database is very similar to China’s social credit scoring system that tracks every detail of Chinese citizen’s lives, upon which China Asians them a “freedom score.”
The software they used to build it out was originally a #BigData analytics program for #SmartCities, like the one Google wants to build in #Toronto.

A1: Canada is an urbanized country, so our cities matter a lot! There is more widespread acknowledgement, appreciation, and attention to how our cities and towns work (or don’t), and the impact that has on our economy, health, environment, and quality of life. 1/3 #futureofgood
A1: At the same time, advances in technology (like hi-speed cell networks, wireless sensors, cheap & plentiful processing power, artificial intelligence) have made possible all kinds of ways to run a city that were previously unimaginable or unaffordable. 2/3 #futureofgood
A1: (btw all this software and hardware has to come from somewhere, so let's not forget that #smartcities are also a lucrative market & line of business for global tech, telecom, & consulting firms) 2.5/3 #futureofgood

As we peel back the layers of an orchestrated movement that serves to protect the ruling classes & the suicidal capitalist system itself, we need to look at Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy. This will be a long & important thread. #FridaysForFinance
The Compact of Mayors officially merged w/ the Covenant of Mayors in 2016. The Global Covenant of Mayors [for Climate and Energy] unites more than 9209 cities (already committed) in 132 countries across 6 continents. This represents the world's largest coalition.
The Board is co-chaired by European Commission Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič and former New York City Mayor and U.N. Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Climate Action Michael Bloomberg. Former UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres serves as Vice-Chair.

To understand why so many are highlighting the Chinese cameras in Leinster House, one must first recognise that China does not do business or espionage like the West. There's no separation between industry sectors the CCP deems strategically important.
The #IOT, #5G, #AI and #SmartCities sectors are integral to China. These sectors have billions of dollars pumped into them from Chinese government central and regional funds and are controlled centrally by the CCP, with the CCP placing key personnel into these companies.
One other area of interest to the Chinese government is #BigData - and boy do they have the opportunity to gather as much of this as possible thanks to the West. This data is used to forecast and predict actions, reactions of markets, industry and people - most importantly people
