A New Book Published by a 2010 Urgent Evoke Hero-- Indigenous Knowledge from philosophy to design

2011 Urgent Evoke Social Innovator, Legendary Agent/Mega Hero Dr. Ampat Koshy has written a book in which he codifies indigenous knowledge of many cultures, from Plato and the ancients to current philosophers and philotechs and more!!! I am posting my review here-- it is a great book, and I hope you all try to read it. :)(short version:)"Wrighteings" is a challenge, but also a really fun book to read, if you can take time to attune to the cadence of the words.

So many Heroes, so little time

I have so many heroes, real and avatar, who have had so profound an effect on Evoke Season 1; and so little time remains for acknowledging them all.

and Please also see a.v.koshy's efforts at listing heroes as well, at http://www.urgentevoke.com/profiles/blogs/my-top-evokers-not-in-any?xg_source=activity…

Evoke Hero A.V.Koshy

A.V.Koshy, extraordinary contributor, commentor, and rebel on Evoke Season 1 is a tireless and insightful hero. Choosing from among his 161 blog posts, 20 discussions, 21 photos, and 5 videos (among these ony 82 remain; there were so many more) is an almost impossible task. A loyal friend and supporter of many on and off evoke, koshy is a master network builder, colleague, and independent…

Hi... just looking for a couple of more gardeners still. Did you get a change to invite? I'll look this afternoon-- a bit breathless with responsibilities at school today...
At 3:01am on April 19, 2010, Paul Allison said…
Hi Michele,
We are putting together a webcast all about communty gardend -- and especially Urben ones -- for this Wednesday at http://EdTechTalk.com/live at 9:00pm Eastern / 6:00pm Pacific USA Wednesdays / 01:00 UTC Thursdays World Times
Do you think you can make it again? And do you think you could put the announcement out over your network? We'd love to talk to anyone with a garden who is playing Evoke! Alternatively, you could suggest people, and I'll contact them.

THANKS so much!!

We will be the second hour of a 24-hour Live Earthcast. We'll be up just after Jason Czarneki talks from China.

I have also invited a teacher from the Lower East Side of Manhattan who teaches Chinese students in her ESL cla**** and they are growing plants after reading Seedfolks, by Paul Fleischman.

I hope you will be able to join us!
At 10:14pm on April 14, 2010, Paul Allison said…
Yes! We would still love to have you. Hannah was excited to learn that you might be joining. We tend to over-invite, but your voice as an active agent and a gardener is just right for tonight's conversation -- which is quite informal.

I don't remember. Did you say that you are comfortable with Skye? If so, please add PaulRAllisonNYC and SusanEttenheim as contacts on Skype.

If not, please call me at 917-612-3006, and we'll get in touch.
At 12:13am on April 14, 2010, Paul Allison said…
Just to clarify. We broadcast at 9:00 p.m. and we could easily call to a phone.
At 11:38pm on April 13, 2010, Paul Allison said…
Hi Michele,
I'm Hannah Kohn's teacher. You gave her such thoughtful response to her post about what she wants to plant.

We're starting a community garden this week... finally got all of the approvals and some of what we need to get started.

I do a live webcast on Wednesdays at http://edtechtalk.com/live called Teachers Teaching Teachers -- have been for about 5 years now...

We would love to have you on the show tomorrow evening at 9:00 p.m. if you are available!

Do you Skype?

LEARN1- Social Innovator

My favorite, and perhaps most needed social innovation today, is "Don’t fight culture (If people cook by stirring their stews, they’re not going to use a solar oven, no matter what you do to market it. Make them a better stove instead.)"This simple idea has two meanings. First, it shows that the injustice of poverty and instability does not have a cookie cutter answer. Rather, it takes domestic and well educated responses that address the factors that drove a culture to suffer so, such as from…See More
