Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I appreciate that we can search by country, but it would be very helpful to search Agents by region of the world or continent.  It would make it easier to seek out evidence and agents from regions of the world in which we are trying to evoke solutions.

Also - I am wondering if is possible for each Agent to self tag themselves from a standard set of "issue" tags.  For example: energy, farming, education.

It would have to be a standard set of tags to work -- but it would REALLY facilitate finding people to collaborate with.

Ayala, I totally agree.
I proposed a couple of missions on my blog dealing with localization; since then I'm also thinking of ways to present visually every evoke agent's (rough) location, on a shared Google map. I'll let you know, if interested, when something will be ready to test.
I'll probably discuss feasibility issues in some other forum thread, not to pollute yours with nerdy stuff :)
Stefano-I'm interested. please keep me posted. it's getting hard to keep track of everything i care about here on evoke.

Hi Ayala, Nathaniel was much faster than me in creating the users' map, as he can directly access EVOKE's database.

Here is Nathaniel's the comment on the forum:

and here's the map:

Unfortunately, that map isn't always very up to date, as Ning only allows a data export every X hours. However, you can guarantee that map will be anywhere from 0-48 hours out of date, so it shouldn't be too bad.

Nice to know that, even if Ning API only based on RSS seems to be quite poor and unfriendly to use, don't you think?
I agree! I think it would be great to be able to search for friends by region. This could foster diversity in my list of contacts. Great suggestion! The suggestion to search by issue, too, is also excellent insofar as it allows people to network around particular problems and their potential solutions.
Oh wonderful idea! let us start! i am very much interested!

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Changes to Charleston

https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zQ49AvLkhA2w.kfbaOGer-lQYIf you click my link to my custom map using Google My Maps you will see the addition of a Emergency Shelter to be used in case of a tidal wave or other event from the sea. Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.

pam-wollis-quilt

Charleston has an exhibit opening up with pieces of old african art and sculptures. Every piece of art, quilts and dolls, is beautiful and engaging in their own way… Many of them address the mermaids that followed the slave ships to return the souls…
