Headline, March 30 2022/ ''' '' WORLD* WITHOUT WONDER '' ''' : STUDENTS



WITH ALMIGHTY GOD'S BLESSINGS FOR MANKIND - THIS worthy servant brimming with youth, energy, focus and selflessness, fires off the first salvo at Zilli, one of the most loved and respected Founder Framers of !WOW! :

Zilli : '' Propose a resolution that so horizon's all students who didn't step up to serve in building a better world. Debate, and pass that with 2/3rd majority of The Global Founder Framers. And publish these names in ' The Grey Honours List on Sam Museum of History '. Their name stays bright till they return to their voluntary work assignments.''

AND WITH THAT : The World Students Society - for every subject in the world, rises to give the publishers, the writers, the editorial staff, the heroic journalists of The New York Times, - an endowed life long member of !WOW! - a standing ovation. And !WOW! thank them for their incomparable support.

Stewart Brand - considered by many to be one of America's pre-eminent futurists, is helping to build a 10,000 clock - a path toward what he believes will be a long term future for civilization.

And in that very philosophy, welcome to The World Students Society - for every subject in the world and the exclusive ownership of each and every student.

Mr. Brand has long had an eerie knack for trends early or showing up in the midst of them, like some high I.Q. Forrest Gump, only to leave for the next big thing just when everyone else catches up.

In 2005, Mr. Jobs gave a commencement address at Stanford, cited Mr. Brands as a major influence in his life and explained what ''Whole Earth'' was to a younger generation :

''It was a sort of like Google in paperback form, 35 years before Google came long,'' he said. ''It was idealistic and overflowing with neat tools and great notions.''

Steward Brand coined the term ''personal computer'' in 1974, several years after writing an article for Rolling Stone that described the future of the digital world. Computers, he predicted, would be the next important trend after psychedelics drugs :

''That's good news, maybe the best since psychedelics. It's way off the track of the 'Computers - Threat or menace?' school of liberal criticism but surprisingly in line with the romantic fantasies of the forefathers of the science,'' he wrote.

Stewart Brand paused near the end of a steep trail just a quarter of a mile short of a cactus laden vertical cliff face on the side of a 6,000 feet high mountain in southern Texas.

He had hiked three hours to check on a project and now stood near a tunnel opening that looked like the entrance to some old time mining operation.

It wasn't old, though. Inside was something new, meant to encourage society to consider its obligation to uncountable future generations.

The opening in the rock face led to something called the Clock of the Long Now. It housed 500-foot tall cylindrical space, hollowed out inside the mountain, and is designed to keep time without human intervention - for 10,000 years.

Mr. Brand is the president of the Long Now Foundation, and the work grew out of his desire to focus on what he calls long-term responsibility and thinking. But the clock itself is possible because of the largess of the foundation's largest benefactor, Jeff Bezos, one of the world richest people.

The clock is still under construction. But when it is complete, it will represent the longest of long-term thinking, made possible by money from a man who provides near instantaneous satisfaction with one-click shopping.

Mr. Brand foresaw the world that made a fortune like Mr. Bezos' possible - a place where technology connected everyone. His writing, ideas and the community he created in Menlo Park, Calif., in the late 1960s were an integral part of the forces that coalesced in the region that would be named Silicon Valley in 1971.

Mr. Brand's biggest innovation, though, may be the way he has taught people to look at the world.

In the 1960s, he put an image of the planet Earth on : ''The Whole Earth Catalog,'' which became a bible for the baby boom generation. It won the National Book Award for 1972 and sold three million copies in the first three years after publication.

Modeled in part on the L.L. Bean catalog, it was originally intended as a source for Mr. Brand's friends who were going back to the land. Instead, it touched a nerve and became a manual for reinvention for entire generation - including Apple's Steve Jobs.

For example, in 1967, as many of his friends were going back to the land to found communes, Mr. Brand arrived squarely in the middle of the region soon to be named Silicon Valley. In his journal, he wrote that he was living in Menlo Park ''with the intent to let my technology happen here.''

His ''Whole Earth Catalog'' was subtitled ''Access to Tools,'' and recently, as the national mood soured on Silicon Valley, a variety of authors, including Franklin Foer in ''World Without Mind,'' Jill Lepore in ''These Truths'' and Jonathan Taplin in ''Move Fast and Break Things,'' have pointed to Mr. Brand as the original technological utopian.

His words and ideas, they argue, seduced and inspired the engineers who created the modern digital world.
