Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Suddenly Facebook became just so boring.
You log on, read status updates, look at friends photos and chat about everyday things, just simply to kill some time.

On the other hand, Evoke has an enormous potential to make some real useful changes.

I'm fascinated by the idea how people are massively logging to Evoke with a desire to contribute their knowledge and their views on different world problems, suggest solutions, connect for a better future.

I'm proud to be a part of this social innovation experiment.
And yes, at least for me Facebook in this past week just became so boring ...

I must confess, unlike Facebook, evoke offers me topics to blog about and an audience that might actually read them. Still, FB/twitter have their place in maintaining my social network.

I wish that EVOKE was more robust and could perform reputation and status maintenance. But then again, my ideas do tend to be a bit out of scope with most of EVOKE.

I agree ... I have the same feeling ... people here are really interested in reading what we write. And by the way I really like your posts ... the writing style and the content.

This format is Ning and I've used it before. It really does work for finely tuned topics. Facebook is more about getting friends and sharing everything. Here everyone has a common interest in social change.

after the 10 weeks EVOKE should expand and become some sort of Facebook of social innovation.

Patricio, that would be very good if that would happen. I'm fascinated how many people share such a great ideas and sparks ... I think, definitely something good has to come out of these :)

I totally agree!

I think of Evoke as a directed Facebook, which is what the creators were sort of going for I believe. I think Facebook is still good for the mass majority, we just happen to be a subculture which loves sharing ideas. For us, this is a million times better. But there are others who do not share this passion or are have passion for things which they can find better elsewhere. It's worth bringing up and thinking about though in my opinion. Thanks!

Fourth of July on the Lake

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.
