Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Evoking Awareness, Innovation, and Action for a Changing World

Here is a list of 10 challenges and social problems that I consider would make meaningful and solutionary focuses for the next season of EVOKE, with a name for the EVOKE following the subject, and some relevant links:

BioDiversity ('Extinction Alert!')
Desertification ('Invasive Deserts')
The 'Western' Diseases (Obesity, Diabetes, Heart Disease,...) ('The Diet Plague')
Religious Fundamentalism ('Apocalyptic Destiny')
Military Industrialism/Profiteering ('The High Price of War')
Primary Old-Growth Logging ('Saving the Sacred')
Gang Violence ('Viral Violence')
Agribusiness vs. The Small Farm (...'Agribusiness vs. The Small Farm')
Ocean Ecology ('Oceans in Peril')
Human Consciousness ('Changing Our Reality') ("We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them')


Perhaps getting in to new areas of the world is going to first be a question of having EVOKE available in a more diverse range of languages. Maybe first doing a Spanish version would really open things up to much of the Western Hemisphere, and a Chinese version would also help access a big crowd (and a big gaming crowd, too!).


I think EVOKE would be great for a younger audience to play. To reach out and attract more players from the 12-17 years old demographic would be planting an amazing seed in the next generation!


An interesting change to the game might be adding in another incentive, or gaining another fulfillment, from completing each part of a mission. This could be tied in to the story and comic, where there is a short, perhaps 1 or 2 pages, of comic that comes available each time you complete one part of a Mission.


A great new tool for EVOKE will be 'media motivation'. There can be video or audio from amazing, world-changing people that are made specifically for the EVOKE network. For example, the week's EVOKE is 'Peace and Conflict', and along with a new mission and quest, there is a personal video for the EVOKE Network from Archbishop Desmond Tutu, inspiring and motivating all agents to take on the challenge!


I would be very inspired to continue participating in EVOKE if there was a focus to support agents in supporting themselves and their activities with the resources and skills needed to keep themselves 'afloat' in these times and in the days to come. This could be a sort of on-line exchange market for EVOKE agents to send resources to each other, a central HQ where agents can go for education on crucial world-changing skills, a multi-national interest free microbank for EVOKE Agents, and perhaps beginning a decentralized storage program for keeping crucial supplies on hand for requests from EVOKE agents.

I really like the idea of bonus content when you complete a mission. Easter eggs are fun!

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

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.
