Short Evoke manifesto

1. Listen and study the area or problem your solving. Live it before fixing it.
2. do no harm (consider 3 generation impacts)
3. measure the output and come up with those metrics before starting.
4.have an independant 3rd party measure and a****s the plan before starting and after finishing.
5. Listen to those you are trying to help.

Tool for creating narratives: comic strip generator http://stripgenerator.com/

This isn't content, per se, but meta content.

A lot of people think better in pictures and understand graphics. I think The next version of evoke should use something like strip generator for letting people tell there stories and understand the context of daily life of those we are trying help.

This a very powerful tool, to share narratives: http://stripgenerator.com/…

Problem solving is 90% about context and framing

Problem solving is 90% about context and framing the issues, so that solutions are relevant.

I would like to see future evoke go deeper into problem and context. to understand the issues and constraints around the problems.

A lot of the solutions to problems are unsexy such as logistics, communication, education of solution and maintenance.

finally feedback and 3rd party verification of process is…

crisis resource delivery response using a bid auction mechanism for routing & allocation

here is a blog post about live crisis mapping in Haiti with an amazing video of a live map of the crisis unfolding. http://www.gogerty.com/?p=893

My hope for the future is that we move beyond, capturing the state on the ground using open source tools and more towards open source logistics on the ground. ad-hoc resources could be "bid" on in an auction format and distributed based on need. For example medicine, personnel etc. in…

Dark site and emergency planning for small enterprises

A lot of crises are amplified by small and medium sized businesses failures which can have immediate and long term economic impact. Disaster planning in advance can help these providers.

NGO's on the ground prior to an event can use IT plans like this to prepare for roll-outs. Ideally co-ordination plans would also be available.…

Crisis response

crisis response seems to be highly related to the credibility of the source as well as the medium.

The 5 stages of reaction to a disaster are very interesting:…

a secret to pass on in 60 years.

I would most likely pass on very basic and un-interesting information about life. before everything become connected. I don't know how valuable it would be in the future. narrative and fact have value, but might only have value future value as novelty.

I am not sure I possess anything that is secret and of value for the future.

I guess I think the most important lessons aren't facts, but rather skills of listening and paying attention. good…

Women make up at least 30% of all parliaments globally. The average is now 11.2%

in 1915 the US gave women the vote. It is still…

Toilets help educate women.

Having access to a toilet allows younger girls and women to go to school without fear of being harassed. I would urge reading the Big Necessity, by Rose George and then donating to building latrines for schools. Believe it or not, lack of Toilets are one of contributing factors to lower education for women.

Sometimes the root cause of a problem can only be understood by…

2020 super capacitors

it is 2020, and there are fewer transmission lines in the world and 1,000 more electricity grids. the us has 5 mega grids.

sustainable, reliable power is delivered via a portfolio of generation sources and types. transmission grids can cost up to $1m/mile for HVDC.

renewables are mostly intermittent supplies. (30% uptime) sunshine wind etc.

having storage in the form of new ultracapacitors could allow for stable…

Energy storage is key to energy freedom

many renewables (other than dams) are interemitant. wind and solar have a 30% uptime. baseload power is what a grid delivers. batteries are a great storage mechanism. ultracapacitors are a type of battery. learn more here. I have built a comparison spreadsheet for those who want a tool to understand the relationships.

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

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…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.
