Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I recently submitted an idea for a player Challenge:

"I like the idea of a collaborative challenge.

I've noticed some people already posting to try to gather groups of people together to work on an Evokation (Here and Here). I think it may be interesting to turn collaboration on an Evokation, or any sort of positive project, into a long term challenge.

The first challenge would be to find at least one other person, and create a post together with a rough idea for what you want to collaborate on. All of the people involved would post the same post on their own blog, and would provide links to the other same posts on their team members' blogs. They would receive 1 Collaboration point for this, plus any points their team members may want to give (encouragement for collaborative with more people)

This would then be continued in a series of challenges, working to a final and actualized goal. Subsequent challenges may involve fleshing out and making a detailed plan, or taking actions on your plan.

For example, say Bob and I find each other on Evoke, and find that we share a passion for engineering. This challenge comes about, and we decide to work together. We come up with the idea of joining Engineers Without Borders and traveling to the same rural town in Africa and doing a project there. We blog about this in the first challenge.

In the second challenge, we make a detailed plan of action. Describe when we are going to join Engineers Without Borders, where we are going to go, what we are going to do, how we are going to pay for it, etc.

In the Third challenge, we actually do it, and blog about our experiences.

This is mostly to grow Collaboration, and is also to create actual action. It can be the spark that gets people working together, planning, and then actually doing something. Rewards would be a point in collaboration for doing it plus the points your teammates give you."

Even if this doesn't officially become a challenge, I think it may be a good way for people here to work together and achieve something.

Any comments/ideas?

i like this. EVOKE already smacked of a little real world on the game, global frequency type of thing. before tonight, i will have placed my Evokation. I notice on the side bar there is something about creating your own missions and challenging the network. Maybe we can tie into that. I think everyone can do something like this. We all have things we are passionate about, and we can all help each other. Three days into the game and we are already 7000+ strong. it's time to start moving...

see my mission 1 imagine post for some background on what i plan to do...

Yay! Taking the game into your own hands and making it bigger and even more real-world applicable - I like this. +1 Vision!

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***tances 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.
