Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Just a quick idea.

I work as a librarian and would be willing to offer up an hour or two every week over the next ten weeks to do research or help people find resources for any project they are working on for EVOKE.

If you need help researching a subject, please send me a message or leave a comment. I will try my best to help you.

I noticed that there are a few other librarians out there in EVOKE, so if they would like to help also, please send me a message so we can work together.

I think the aspect of EVOKE that needs librarians is filtering and managing all the data we're producing. Do you have any ideas how we can do this?
Comment by Fiacre on March 6, 2010 at 5:19am
I was thinking of setting up a wiki (I have a website where I could do this) to allow people to manage their information, organized according to the EVOKE powers perhaps? Does this seem like a good idea?

Thanks for pointing that out! I missed it completely.

The only problem with it is
1. it seems to be drowning in advertisements, making it a little hard to use
2. people don't seem to be aware of it (it was last used hours ago, which doesn't reflect the level of activity on Evoke)
3. no one has taken on the task of helping organize it

But the question is, will another one make any difference?

Your moment of zen: it will always work if you want it to work.

Really, though, do whatever you want wiki-wise: I've always found Wikidot or PBWiki to be nice, as they don't plaster your site with ads. It always works better when it comes from the players. :)

Awesome idea! Though I'm only cousin to librarians (as an archivist), I'd be happy to put my Google-fu to good use. I wonder what the possibilities of setting up something like the IPL'a Ask a Librarian service would be. Wikis are great and all, but with all of the interest in Evoke, it could get very unwieldy. +1 for PBWiki, though.

You're signed up! I really like the IPL'a Ask a Librarian idea. And yes, I'm still rather unsure about the wiki.

I'm not a Librarian myself (I'm still at school) but I am the Deputy Head of the largest school Library in the Southern Hemisphere, and I'm all for Project Librarian! Any need for research (particularly on Antarctica - we have a benefactor who's crazy about the place) and I will gladly lend a hand. Good idea, Mr o'Duinn. Thank you.

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.
