I'm in love with this guy. While the idea of simply letting kids run amok with computers doesn't really fulfil a lot of fundamental educational needs, this concept of self-organising systems and emergence as a source of self-powered education is wonderful.
The Green Gap
In the Cold War, we feared a Missile Gap was a strategic weakness. Nowadays, we must awaken to the fact that the Green Gap is true strategic weakness: the nations whose economies will thrive in the coming years will not be those with the biggest factories, but those with the most sustainable, efficient, and ecological markets. What we require is a Strategic "Green Reserve" of ecological design to weather the coming changes that both climate and resource scarcity will force on the international economy.
