Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

There are lot of new ways to spend money for various purposes since the web 2.0 community grows more and more. But there are still the big players like VISA, Mastercard, Banks and other intermediaries. And where you have intermediaries you have to pay a specific margin for the service.

A different approach I found here. It uses an existing network (mobile phones), with an existing technology (text messaging) and it is as simply as writing text messages.

It just makes transferring money as easy as it should be and thereby reducing transaction costs to its minimum.

How it works:
The phone acts as a prepaid wallet. You can text money to one that has never used text money before. When she/he gets the text message she/he is automatically a member of the network and can use it immediately.

Beside this idea of transferring money is not the final take (particularly because of security issues) its shows the way of how you should differentiate the way we exchange money. It is about using an existing technology and trying to avoid intermediaries to make accessible money to everyone. Also to the people that are not creditworthy and live below the poverty line. The people can be part of the economic system and can help themselves to get out of it.

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.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
