Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

In China, there is only a few people knowing what ARG is.

If I didn't go to US, I would not be interested in it. My professor tell me some great work done by Jane Mcgonigal and then I get to know Evoke. After 10 weeks of playing, I figure out that I totally love it.

So what is your story? 

How do you get to know evoke?

I now Turil this was in a video from Alchemy. This agent probably was not able to see that video because of the goofy connection. One of the main problems with lack of resources (on "undeveloped" circ***tances) is that information gets corrupted on the way, making people feel upset and frustrated, not to mention the waste of energy and money. We should be there, we have to wear those shoes to understand...wait a minute, wasn't LEARN 1 all about this? ;-)

Ternura, building a dark site isn't a requirement, you know? You only have to do one of the three missions each week to get the certification.
I never saw any video... I'm not sure what you're talking about.

But please tell your friend that they only have to do one of each week's missions to get certified (as per the EVOKATIONS FAQ). That way you'll give her a chance to get what she wants. :-)

And I agree that the game isn't perfect. It's an experiment. And the feedback we offer in our missions this week about what we'd like to see in the next version of the game will help shape the future, so letting them know that you want ways to ensure those who don't have fancy technology can still play and enjoy playing.
I heard from a friend - Siena Anstis. She is a very resourceful person -always updated about almost everything.
So, when she sent me the email address she said, Register for this Game and participate!!

So, I read about UE on the blog and I registered, also noted 3rd March in my planner.

Here I am now, 10 weeks down the road.


PS: Thank you all for sharing your stories about how you heard of EVOKE!!
Thanks for your concerns Turil. We need more people like you in the world.
I am sure the agent will be fine. Installing and fixing goofy connections on refugee camps is not the responsibility of UE or WBI. I guess the first edition of UE was not intended to reach users on such remote places anyway ;-).
Now there is a network of more than 19000 agents who can help improve UE and also some shameful situations on this planet.

Well, I noticed that lots people were not active at all at the very beginning.
I trully appreciate all your awesome work in Evoke.
Could you please tell me why you are so enthusiastic about it?

Wow, thank you for your advise. I am getting more and more friends to evoke.

I was looking for info and resources related to immigration policies in my city (all are failing, I don't know why), when I found the list of convocatories and other activities inviting european youth for 2010. It was more like the game found me. actually :-). It took me about one week to make up my mind, I lost precious time, I started evoking on March 16th.
Playes from Bolivia are not active, I figure out it must be hard for them becuase of the language and the "fast" Internet conncetion. Thi is the reason why I think UEvoke II has to become more accessible to the "un-westernly developed" world.
The TED-talk is brilliant. I should say...

Johan Sundqvist said:
I heard about it through a friend that in turn heard about it on a TED-talk. I started playing week 4, so I had a little catching up to do...
There are only a few Swedish players and no one I've spoken to have heard about UE.
Wow, I am so interested in ARG and just start a little research in China. What's your project? Is that OK to share with me?

I've been promoting evolutionary games (based on developmental theory) for years, and I knew a little about Jane's previous games (but not her). I think I even signed up for the last one, but thought it was way too negative. And so when I saw the TED talk, which was overwhelmingly positive, and I remembered an acquaintance of mine on LiveJournal who had been talking about working on one of the previous games (I even thought that might have been Jane, since I didn't remember her real name), and came here immediately. And when I got here, I saw my LJ friend's name on the Leaderboard, and joined and friended her immediately. :-) And since I'd just ended a major project in my life, I had an opening for something new and big, this ended up being the perfect thing!
Here is my story..

I got the link from a friend, former college friend. I was curious of what kind of game it would be. Then here i am, though sometimes I have not enough time to sign in and write something as I have to have fields visits, but still it's an interesting game. I found ideas, thoughts and creatives solution for many issues, and still hoping that I would learn more, explore more and trying to contextualize it, then put it as part of the efforts to empower the community I've been serving for almost a year.
So, I'd still love to receive ideas, feedback or maybe just a simple question that will help me to have a more in-depth study on the issues.

Thanks for sharing! :)

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

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.
