Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Just wondering how many people know about TED and their amazing talks? I think it would be a great resource for many people on here to get some great evidence of what is going on! I am not trying to take away from this site, that is not the point. I just want people to expand their minds with some really cool motivational talks. I know I can't watch everything, so if people share those ideas and expand on them in their own ways it would be great.

I really like this community and what is going on, I have already seen some really intelligent posts and some really cool creative pictures. Continue the great work.

Wow, glad to see there are so many "TED heads"!
Alright, it's been a little over a week now and we should get this thing started, don'tcha think ?

The TED talks format is as follows :
Speakers : 1, sometimes with the aid of an assistant for demonstration ;
Theme : 1 theme (ranges from creativity, to business, to management, to productivity, to science, to almost anything) ;
Duration : The talks last up to (but not over !) 19 minutes.

These talks are designed to keep their audience as interested as possible and we could certainly just follow these guidelines. We could also start each presentation with the EVOKE handsign, and sign off with it ?

As far as sharing is concerned, Vimeo automatically come to mind since that's what the EVOKE trailer was posted to. Go get yourselves accounts, and start filming, guys ! Once you're done, upload your video and add it to the EVOKE Talks group after joining. It will be easier to go with that name, since TED Talks might not be pleased that we use their name without permission ;)

Let's make it work, guys !
I love ted talks! Did anyone see the recent suspended animation video?
Has anyone reading this ever been to the conferences live? Like paid to go and see it? That would be amazing. My soft spot seems to be the more philosophical topics, ala. 'Remebering and Experiencing true happiness' blew my mind about how I believe the human psyche to be.

This community continues to grow in awesome-ness....
Speaking of TED and EVOKE... we've got something in the works that might or might not happen... stay tuned. You might find out something in a few weeks. Don't say you heard anything. ;)
Oh, how you tease us ;)
TED is acutally the reason why I joined EVOKE. There is a really cool talk by a developer and that got me started.
TED is great treasure chest of knowledge and a huge inspiration for me.
yeah, please tell us it's a TEDx EVOKEx... please, please, please...
didn't hear anyting, anyway...

So much of what we are trying to do here, with EVOKE, and out there in the real world, is footed in education. As a person with life-long dedication to education and learning, but with a serious bend toward application of ideas, TED proves to be one of the few places that sustains my belief in turning thought into action. I really hope that EVOKE will as well. It was, in fact, Jane McGonigal's TED talk that brought me to this network.

Using TED as a tool, I've held, and attended, several evenings of discussion at my home about TED topics and the impact that the ideas have had on me since seeing them. It was also a great experience to share the ideas immediately instead of having them hit me in a mental vacuum. I would like to elevate this sentiment, having them be a call to action.

I'm looking forward to being more of a producer in this enterprise. Hopefully, my schedule works out and I can participate be providing a (not)TED worthy production.
Love TED...been watching it for 3 years. That is how I found this game.
TED is amazing. At my local school using it is almost like part of the curriculum. TED also has an iPhone app so you can each talks on the go.

I LOVE the TED talks, which are not only educational, but also extremely inspirational!

I've been watching TED talks for a couple of years now. I am always blown away by the innovation of such awesome and intelligent people!

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**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

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.
