Policy by gaming: EVOKE, a preliminary a****sment

I run a blog about public policy. I wrote a preliminary a****sment of the EVOKE experience - interesting and in my opinion generally positive, despite the dissatisfaction of some high profile agents over what they perceive as censorship. Anyone interested:

Banking for robustness: Dr Doom and The Black Swan to lead the European Central Bank

April 2020. In a move that credibly signals a will to push for reform, the European Central Bank starts to reinvent itself. Two brilliant, unorthodox scientists are charged with leading it through the reform process: epistemologist/statistician Nassim Taleb (nicknamed The Black Swan, after his best seller book) and economist… Continue

Supporting art in Africa: criteria for EVOKE inspired microlending

I decided to join the EVOKE team (15 members, me included, as of today) on the microlending site Kiva. After some search on the website I allocated a microloan of $50 to Ms. Mame Diarra Samb from Diamaguène Thies, Senegal. She sells works of art at the local market, and will use her loan to purchase more works so she can bolster sales. …

The fastest men in Milano

The Urban Bike Messengers have set up shop in Milano. Significantly, they are headquartered in Hub Milano, the coworking space dedicated to social innovators.

These guys are getting a lot of attention because they managed to throw together three features of small deliveries:

  1. they are green. People like to be seen using them rather than, say, UPS.
  2. they are cool. They have great gear, and…

Hi Alberto, glad to meet you here. I know Kublai and I know who you are. I'm following you on twitter, via one of my accounts (it's "wh***mergence", the one I use for rss; please don't be offended if it is not the personal one - "mapofemergence" - ; it's just because of efficiency).
I'm glad for your proposal and I'll consider it seriously. I will just take some time, as I don't like to answer superficially. Also, I'll follow your EVOKE blog in the next days when, hopefully, I'll be a bit lesser busy than now. Thank you for taking some time to read my blog and giving feedback, I seriously appreciate that.

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.

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
