Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Share some things we've gained from Evoke

I'd like to take an opportunity to reflect on our time here on Evoke. Let's share some of the Epic wins and great connections during Season 1.

I had my first epic win when I realized I was speaking to the creator of the site, Jane McGonigal.

The second thing that happened to me while on Evoke was a complete perspective change on the world! Learning about everything going on in the world...problems which seemed unthinkable to me such as lack of clean water, food, and electricity. And then to think about solutions and have extremely intelligent people give me feedback about those solutions was incredible to me.

Please share your experiences too.

One day I hope we can look back and say the guy/gal that got us out of this horrible oil dependency got started on Evoke by hashing out ideas with other people for 10 weeks :)

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

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.
