Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Outside the green streets and waterways flash by as the prt car moves through the northern California towns. I am lucky to be moving so well when there is so much net load today that insome places service has been interrupted in waves causing slowdowns and basically a form of traffic. I can tell the new is slow because I have been attempting to load a new program I just acquired on my trip to my dynamo fabber at home, hoping to have it loaded in in time for my afternoon meal.

The fabber is useful for things like bacon, for chanka wedges and for mino stew sometimes. The features of these textured protein items are their ability to absorb sauces, and their pleasing firm tooth texture. The bacon program excites me because its the first time I will have made a vat grown that didnt have any animal in it. A few years ago I owned a vat unit that I really didnt like that much so I sold it to a local. I still buy sausages from them sometimes I think that makes the best use of the tech.


Of course at home the bacon will have to be printed out if I can just get it loaded up into the system in time. It seems like I have spent a lifetime already riding in these prt pods and poking at smartphones making things happen in distant servers and personal storage spaces. Certainly I remember before when everyone was forced to drive and maintain their own vehicles all the time. From a appliance monitor I can see that the bread machine is already starting to cool off. By the time I get home I hope I will be able to combine the freshly baked bread with a luscious tomato from the garden, a perfectly ripe avocado that I have in my things brought from the city and with any luck ...bacon!


I manage to finish the process of instigating the fabbing cycle just as the pod rises over the hill before Garberville, I can see my old farm project thriving in the river flats below, planted and tended by young farmers learning how to dry farm. I used to always get tomatoes from them even after I left the project, now I almost always have some good ones at home.



Before I exit the PRT car I send in my reservation to use it again in the morning. Its a short walk up the hill to my cabin from the road station. careful of the avocado I can hear the dog just as I climb the porch. Inside the smell of freshly baked bread is heavy on the air as I put away my packages and greet the dogs. Its exciting for me to have some fabbed bacon for my sandwich because I dont really eat meat anymore just these sorts of fabbed items. They are very clean and healthy and the proteins are easily digested. I will still probably fry it in a pan.

you know I am an avid sci-fi reader and this is the first time vat protein ever sounded appetizing. I could handle a future like this! :)

+1 creativity. Love the RPT pod sharing system.

Here's to pre-fabbed food... And well done on describing a "convenience system" that actually seems to take a lot of work to keep track of!

Ayala the worst thing about writing this post today is that now I am craving something that doesnt exist yet!

I love the future we are all envisioning! Home Fabbing. . . yes, but we still get to have real dogs. (lots of real dogs)
Comment by cattavery on March 18, 2010 at 11:18pm
Yes Linda, we need dogs to be human, some of us more than others. In my imagined future my dogs eat a dog chow made of 50% algae created products including algae oil, and the rest residual crop waste from avocado orchards and some traditional cereal grains. It would also be great if many of the more intensive gardening products were not direct runoff from the slaughterhouse system currently in place. I think it would be exciting to even print your own dogfood or chicken feed from home grown algae and other products (like aquaculture). And of course I would love it if I could print my own dog toys.

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

Future

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.
