Ken Eklund's hero symbol: game on

The squares are meant to symbolize a game board (like a chessboard) – and me a piece upon it.

Ken Eklund commented on Diana Kolek's blog post Free education for all
"I think getting everyone to agree that education should be free is a tremendous accomplishment. Problems with such a sweeping idea are to be expected, I suppose, and betrayals too unfortunately (but heartbreaking / infuriating nevertheless). I hope…"

"Thys, you are right: it is hard to follow. Many words and ideas are presented without explanation, as if you also were living in the year 2020 and already knew what "aigents" and "avatars" were and how they operated. I like that…"

"Will you make a novel out of this, Ken? I find hard to follow. Very intriging anyhow. So many names and unknown words, meanings, objects. Very strange. It should become a novel or something like it."

LEARN2: Kenya's Dilemma

Agent Shakwei Mbindyo posed a question for us all here: should smallholders in African countries grow food to export to Europe? In her comment Agent Jen Shaffer expanded the question: she knows that many African nations export flowers to Europe. Are either one of these, or both, a good idea for Kenya and Kenyans? Shakwei asks, does "food miles" or other environmental concerns make this a… Continue

ONE and TWO



It’s March 10, 2020. I’m 62 years old. I’m inoculating wood mulch with Pleurotus spawn in the cool dampness of a cave, a welcome relief from the heat outside. It’s strangely calming to think like a mushroom spore, to let each microscopic bit fall where it has the best chance to awaken and grow.



This cave is a hundred years old. It was dug by hand to store wine casks, back when… Continue

LEARN1: Streamlining

"If you want to make something 10 times cheaper, remove 90 percent of the material."

The secret to this secret is "material." For me, this does not mean physical mass. Objects can be heavy with cultural, intellectual or emotional material, top-heavy with assumptions. Social interactions, in particular: sometimes I find that just removing my ego makes them 10 times better.

Hi Ken, thanks for your comment. I am traveling and with a very precarious connection, so forgive me if I do not reciprocate by looking up your blog straight away. I will, though. :-)

Hi Ken, I did a little research on you before accepting your friendship request. It is my nature and not necessarily a reflection on you. Obviously, you have passed my review. I am intriged by your request. What is it about my profile or Evoke nature do you find appealing? How may it benefit you? and me? and the greater community?
Be In Good Health.

Hi Ken! Thank you for welcoming me! My fundraising game-I don't know what I'm going to call it yet, it's my first game, but I've got Steve Havelka of the Brick Engine on my side, so I know it will be playable in a month or so. And I have 6 years of fundraising experience under my belt, so I know what the tasks will be. Plus, I can draw, so I can make the avatars and backgrounds. It will be 16 bit, so not too difficult. And there will be some challenging running and jumping sections too, I do want to keep it interesting. I look forward to having more to show you!

Thanks for the welcome! I am so excited about this! I love things that make you think outside the box! something that uses technology is great also. Looking forward to getting in further, wish I had learned about it sooner!
