"Someone has to set up a local Ushahidi instance on servers or something like that, and then spread the word in the area about how to use it. Not my area of geekspertise, I'm afraid."

"Seriously. I just happened to be lucky enough to live a block from a station where hubby is friends with the owners, so we got good intel quickly. But for less lucky folks, it was a freaking nightmare."

Next Chapter For Evoke - PASSING THE TORCH

MEETING ROOM

I reject your reality and substitute my own - Adam Savage, Mythbusters

EVOKE MANIFESTO

Evoke is you. It's me. It's everyone. Every time you help someone, every time you march for a cause or participate in public debate, you are carrying the spirit of an Evoke agent within you. You have the power to create change - all you have to do is step up and play your part.



Evoke is:



  • Identifying need

  • Empowering people to act for themselves
  • Organizing manpower, resources and innovation to catalyze change
  • Inspiring…

The next chapter - politics

In my opinion, I think Evoke would be the perfect vehicle to deal with political campaigns and other political issues. Evokers could set up unbiased platform wikis about the issues at stake, help set up community voter registration and fraud-protection/watchdog groups and get information on any crooked dealings to the general public through various media and sources.



I also think Evoke should have campus groups on as many colleges and other school sites as possible. Wouldn't it be… Continue

Local crisis information twitter tags

Here is my call to action:



In a crisis, it's important to be able to see what's happening in your area quickly so you can respond. That's why I'm calling on all mobile- and computer-enabled citizens to post updates about conditions, problems, solutions, needs and other issues to Twitter using the #AVLcrisis[cat] tag, using the following categories abbreviations:



  • CND (conditions on the ground)
  • RSP (crisis responders - EMTs, fire, ambulance, police, etc -…

Passing on Indigenous Knowledge

In the future, indigenous will refer to the populations of different planets. The wisdom I would like to pass from Earth is to remember the lessons of the past and not to press Earth's culture on other planets but instead to merge them.See More

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
