Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I shut the lid of my laptop and sighed, rubbing my eyes. KM scouting and training missions had a way of being a blessing and a curse : the blessing part involved meeting people, talking with them, test their strong points and weaknesses and see which ones had what it takes to juggle mental limes deftly enough that they'd be able to cope with the data that needs to be integrated in local Network nodes management systems : most of the time, that means meeting awesome people with a unique point of view on what information is and getting to know to what tune their world rocks like tonight. The cursed part ? Juggling limes on your own until other jugglers join. Especially in cities like Casablanca, that generate data by the truckload every second.

Getting up from the floor and wiggling my ankles a little, I walked to the balcony overlooking Casablanca and looked at the nighttime traffic remembering the premisses of my work on the parrallels between information traffic and material traffic. Most people don't explicitly realize how much the two are alike, but they still feel the need for it. I let out a sigh that turns into a small white cloud and mentally review the list of Guilds - one of our newest, Agents-generated structures - that offered me to join their ranks to try and help organize stuff. All fascinating people and I want to help each and everyone of them, but it feels like the days don't have enough hours and the Network not enough facilitators.

That's one of the reasons why I'm so nervous about what I see here and there around the Network nodes these days : noise all over the place, as if our organization was being flooded by brilliant ideas and unable to keep them organized, making it harder for everyone to get somewhere. Things would be so much easier if the participations on our forums were point-blank stupid. Sadly enough they're brilliant, which makes it that much harder to sift not the Good from the Bad, but the relevant from the irrelevant - the signal from the noise. Is it because our mission is more and more relevant to more and more people ?

I stretch, look at the nighttime traffic some more, and think we need something, something simple to help with that. But what ?

It's late night/early morning in Casablanca and I think I could use some sleep. Tomorrow, I'll need to make sure the people I met today can juggle limes real good !

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.
