Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

WHICH great challenges and social problems should the EVOKE Network tackle next?
- I think the themes and social problems are perfectly chosen and aim at the most urgent social problems of our times. Probably the theme of Food security should focus more on the regions in the world where this theme is really big instead of the developed countries where most of the EVOKE agents are from but the problem may not be that urgent at least at the moment. Maybe one could add the theme of political crisis in developing countries, things like dictatorship and suppression that have recently become a major problem for countries in the middle east.

WHERE in the world should the network try to build up new EVOKE communities?
- I think one of the main goals (as partwise mentioned above) should be to establish EVOKE communities in those countries that are actually affected by the social problems discussed in the network. Of course it isnt easy to have people in really underdeveloped countries participate in an online network but as there are already many projects bringing computers and internet connection to schools e.g. in Africa I think this would be a good point to start.

WHO would you encourage to play Season 2?
- In general I would encourage everyone to participate as the game creates awareness for all the mentioned social problems, awareness that cant be created that easily in any other way. I think the big strength of EVOKE is the playful way in which it creates this important awareness of nowadays social problems.

HOW would you change the game for Season 2?
- There are quite some things concerning the handling of the page that I would change. E.g. after 10 weeks of playing I still havent found a way to create a blog post in any other way than opening a mission briefing and clicking on the blog post link that usually appears in the "Your objective" section. Especially if you want to encourage people in developing countries to join the network, people that are not so experienced concerning the standard structures of web pages, I would highly recommend to improve the handling.

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.

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.
