Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

• WHICH great challenges and social problems should the EVOKE Network tackle next?
I think it would be a good idea to have a look at the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. We have covered many of them already in Season 1, but there are more of them that can be covered next year.

• WHERE in the world should the network try to build up new EVOKE communities?
Being an online game, it is quite difficult for some people in the developing world to access the game’s content. If you could play via a cell phone (or maybe you already can?) that would give so many more players access to the game- and that way practically anyone in the world could play.

• WHO would you encourage to play Season 2?
Perhaps Evoke could be initiated in schools in developing countries (and I guess in the developed world too) so that students could work together on the assignments and missions each week, and submit their findings as a group- that way only one internet connection needs to be established.

• HOW would you change the game for Season 2?
I would make it MUCH easier to find others’ work. It was quite annoying getting messages in my inbox from everyone saying “Look what I did this week!”. I would much rather have had a page where I could click on ‘Evidence’ > ‘ACT5’ or ‘IMAGINE9’ and then all the tagged work for that specific mission would come up. Then you could sort the results by ‘Agent Name’ or ‘Date Posted’ or by ‘Rating’ etc.

• WHAT new tools would you want as an EVOKE agent?
I think it would be helpful to have an in-game chat room for Agents to easily collaborate live. And maybe some widgets, and applications for Ning (if that’s what is used again).

• WHY would you come back for a second Season? What more would you want from the experience?
Are you kidding? We haven’t even scratched the surface of global issues with the first season! This game is a great way to stay involved in what’s happening around the world. There’s no way I had enough time to read all the work by other people that I would have liked, so next year would provide more opportunities for me to do so.

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.
