"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

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 -…

Future of Currency

The experiment that I believe will have the greatest impact on the future is the concept of Micro-Loans. The largest purveyor of these loans is Kiva.org. The idea behind micro-loans is small loans, even as small as $25 to help fledgling businesses that can't get loans anywhere else either because of their location, business, the amount they want to borrow, or a host of other reasons. All businesses need loans for various reasons. Some just to buy more products to sell. This allows many…See More
