Out at Kuala Lumpur International Airport after a high-energy flying visit, mainly for the Bayer MaterialScience Project SunRise launch and meetings (see previous entry), but also with a wonderful session at the KL Impact Hub, co-hosted by Christopher Erichsen and Shariha Khalid of the the Scope Group.

Fascinating to see how the Hub movement has spread – I was one of 12 inaugural members/Fellows back in the day when it was just opening the King’s Cross Hub in London, under the guiding hand of Jonathan Robinson.

Loved the enthusiasm, energy and humour of the participants in the Impact Hub session – and some great questions in the discussion period. another reminder of just how lucky I have been to be able to surf these consecutive waves of social and environmental activism and entrepreneurship. Intrigued to see the MIT Technology Review running its latest survey of 10 breakthrough technologies – bought it to read on the plane. Selection ranges from Google’sProject Loon and supercharged photosynthesis through to megascale desalination.
