Hi Brian more detail on EVOKATION here:


As far as I am aware Alchemy are not yet looking for specific EVOKATION projects. I believe these will begin to take form over the coming weeks. However it is not too early to be thinking about this. Personally I would begin to start focussing on one particular problem, form a team to work on it, develop innovative and sustainable solutions which would be "viable". Just a few early thoughts.

rss feeds are helpful, but still I have to read all of them and make a selection :) thanks

Brian - please point me to where the new evidence logs are?

Part of me thinks thats the point.
They're hoping the lack of aggregation will encourage more random interactions.
They're expecting the users to generate collaborative tools.

At least, thats what I'm hoping...

That's awesome. Let me know if you have any more thoughts on how it relates to folks in the developing world. My idea is something along the lines of "Where there is no program evaluator," but I'm still working on how to make it more basic and adaptable.

I'm clearly an outsider to the field, but it sounds great to me. I especially liked the "Contributions to Information Systems" section. Probably because it most relates to what I do (i.e. I understood it most), even if you're looking at it on a much (much) more macro scale. Let me know how it works out! :)

Btw, have you ever heard of "Where There Is No Doctor"? (http://www.hesperian.org/publications_download.php) If not, it's a great tool (basic, comprehensive, useful) that's used around the world. I want to create something similar for folks to use that describes how (and why) data can be collected and used that could be adapted to a variety of different program modalities. Let me know if you have any insights.

(Let me start with I'm not intimidated at all...) I do indeed work with data, but within a public health / epidemiological framework. So to me data represents characteristics about people (are they infected with HepC?) and interactions they have (did they receive malaria treatment adherence follow-up?). The data itself is meaningless, nothing more than place-holders really. But it's a great way to describe relationships, and that becomes super useful. Things like HepC prevalence and treatment follow-up rates can be used to start to see how effective programs are and that's the part I find most interesting.

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.
