Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Now that the game is officially over, I'm curious about the secret missions...

1. Did everyone get one?  Or was it just some people?  (If so, which people?)

2. What were the different missions?  I think I picked out three of them.  One (the one I got and didn't do, for a variety of good reasons) was to find someone in the game you'd never talked to before, and whi was very different from you, geographically and culturally, to "friend", do a short interview with,  and to promise to stay in touch with.  Another was to find all the Evokations and make a list of them.  And I think another might have been to make a personal video of your experience here. 

Next time it would be great if the secret missions were things that everyone could find and do, and were discovered through actually playing the game (like an Easter egg), rather than something that was just emailed to us.  And it would be great if we could have a choice of which one/s to do.

Wait until the world tells you it doesn't want your awareness.
After that, its learning when and where to speak so that your words have the most impact.

You are really marvelous at guiding conversation though.
Again, been past that already. I've learned to listen between the lines of (and beneath, and above) what the world says.

As for what's come after, for me, personally, is a wh*** lot of play...
How about a game of chinese checkers? Or is that kind of foreign to you?
C'mon! I can tell we would have the most amazing sychronous conversations.

Right now, this is the most important moment. Damn, I need supercomputers...

For some reason, what is happening in here, is kind of like in a escape velocity, like this:

it seems to encompass this lil convo pretty well:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70xmEuWGIJA
and, since some agents on evoke have found numerous "friends" from geographically and culturally different backgrounds, and are in fact maintaining lines of communication, to have made this obvious benefit of the ability to discern the opportunities for contact and exchange of ideas a "secret" mission, and reward some for accomplishing this goal after being advised to, is ... odd. Also, it seems it is easier, or at least more convenient to turn away from and spurn riches and opportunities when you have them, than to advocate for those who do not. Exploring the issues after the event is not advocacy.
I'm sure it's frustrating to many people who were expecting the secret mission and never got one. What a waste, as I said, of enthusiasm that could have been put to good use. And of course, my mission was wasted on me, because I'm not really the chatty type to really stay in touch with people I'm not working with, learning from, or teaching (and I'm kind of an acquired taste, and not the type that other people tend to want to stay in touch with. :-)

Thankfully, this game/training/experience is still very much an ongoing thing, and hopefully there will be less waste of talent and energy as the game continues.
absolutely... well, next season, another chance. if you want to stay in touch, and discuss maslow, write me... otherwise, i will see you here on evoke... cheers!!

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.
