Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I've stumbled across many complaints about Evoke as I've been reading, and it set me thinking about something someone once said to me: You don't have to get it perfect, you have to get it going.

Well, someone got something going, and it's called Evoke. It may not be perfect, but somewhere back during the first mission I read something about using what you have instead of worrying about what you don't have. All these criticisms may be valid, but I've decided not to let them dominate my thinking.

So, just for fun, dig around and see what you can come up with. Post all gripes and complaints below, and I'll try and think of either a rebuttal or a positive way to think about 'the opportunity disguised as a problem.'

I'll add my own two cents:

Life is a process of convergence and divergence. Literally! Organisms merge and combine their best resources to create entirely new and different organisms that go out into the world as separate entities. The Evoke game creators and administrators merge with us agents, as we combine our best resources to create new and better projects, ideas, and groups that will leave the game and go out into the world as unique new beings, ready to participate in the evolution of life itself. It's great when the parent organisms (the official game folks and us agents) are nurturing and make the offspring feel welcome and taken care of, but eventually our ideas, projects, and newly formed groups have to leave the nest, and, just like normal human parents and teenagers, sometimes that separation process is a bit messy and filled with high emotions. :-)

But in the end, everyone who has participated in this experiment has gained something valuable, be it more wisdom, more friends, more ideas, or more support, even if the process hasn't been totally easy. And for that, I think everyone, even those who've felt discriminated against, or who've felt the need to discriminate against someone, appreciates the value they are getting out of this wh*** experience.
A couple more cents...

In my opinion that is one of the obvious learning aspects of the 'game'. If you get a bunch of people together, all coming from diverse backgrounds, with both different and similar goals, they are bound to have feedback which will inevitable contribute to the game. I think one of the questions is, how will each player of the game, improve the game simply by playing it? There is some responsibility for the programmers, developers, etc. But, the real responsibility to change the game, lies in the people playing the game. One doesn't have a successful community by telling someone else to fix the community. One has a successful community because each and every person IS the community. As you both have mentioned, it is a work in progress and a living organism. For it to exist in a state of perfection would be, unnatural. Evoke must evolve, as part of its nature. The people playing Evoke, must also evolve, for that is the only way Evoke can.

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.
