HOPEPHONES, Great Idea...Consider it.

Hi all,

I just joined Hopephones which is an effort to collect mobile phones to distribute among people who can benefit from having one.

Think about it, maybe you or friends have one or two that just sit in a drawer.

LESS of US will do the trick!

Inspired by aspects of Iron Helix 's truly impressive post, I write this post on a subject I haven't really run into on Evoke. Or did I not look hard enough? (also a distinct possibility).

Apart from the knowledge that, in fact, there are enough resources on the planet to feed, educate, give health care to, etc. all people alive today, there remains the question:…

NOT the Future of MONEY, BUT the Future of the MONETARY SYSTEM

I found this four part video to be EXTREMELY enlightening as to the root of current global problems. Never mind the dramatic soundtrack.

I think if we want to think about the Future of Money, we should be willing to question the System behind money and its relevance to today's state of the planet.

The Water Tap Dynamo

As my hot water boiler here at home lights itself to heat up my running water by the flow of this water through a dynamo which delivers the spark for the flames, I had this idea:

Design a dynamo mounted on a common household tap that revolves when you let the water run out of any tap in the house. Whenever I take running water then, I will be using the kinetic energy from the flow of water to generate electricity, which i can store.

Dateline 2020: The first EVOKE Bank opens!

(From our local correspondent)

The mood was festive and expectations were high yesterday as Belgium had the scoop on being the first country to actually reform their National Bank into the EVOKE Bank of Belgium. The somewhat gaudy new sign (see picture) on the front of what was formerly "De Nationale Bank van Belgïe" in the city of Antwerp was the subject of quite some controversy, but, as the Belgian Prime Minister, Brick de Bois, stated, quoting the…

Money's Future? Learn its HISTORY First!

Right. If we are going to think about the future of money we first need to know where it came from, what its history and background is and how its use, its meaning and its pitfalls have evolved throughout the ages.
If there is one thing we seem to take for granted it is that money is a good thing, that it is a great and efficient way to use for human transactions. It is, but...
Why, I wonder, are most, suggestions for the LEARN mission objective in the Future of Money about alternative…

Opportunity Knocks 2020

It's may 2020. Six people gather for an annual celebration. 28 years ago in may we bought a house together, to secure our own shelter and to rent out parts of it to other people. At the time it was a daunting risk to take. But in the meantime it has proven to be a great investment into our own future. At the outset we called ourselves 'OK unlimited' (OK stands for Opportunity Knocks).

Now in 2020 we gather again, celebrating with great food and nice drinks too. This year is…

On the DRAGON 's tail

Well i just took the bull by the horns and wrote an email to KIVA and to the field partners of the people i gave a loan to through KIVA, letting them know that EVOKE players would like help in setting up a direct line of communications with some of the people we are trying to help.
Awaiting response.

I also informed them and now also whoever reads this that there is now a Urgent EVOKE KIVA team. Feel free to join.

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

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.
