Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

So, I hear a lot of people on Urgent Evoke is suffering from The Blues. Disappointed in the site, maybe.

First of all, this is normal.

It is normal in a cycle of events to have a period of critical a****sment of a site. To maybe realize that "Oh, I have spent so much time on this site/game that i have neglected other things".

Evoke is suffering from a mid-life crisis. Week 5 is here.

The site will not die. Some agents will leave, as there have always been agents stopped being active, since week 1. But other agents come. Things change, even if some of us week 1'ers are still here, still posting, still enthusiastic.

I have been quite inactive the last 3-4 weeks. I will be active again now that I see The Blues is kicking in for some. To ask questions, to look at our assumptions.

I guess there are others too who have 'saved energy'. We are in this for the long haul.

Urgent Evoke may sound like a 'crash course' but 10 weeks of intense involvement like this is actually a small marathon. You need to save energy, you need to make sure that there is balance in your life during the 10 weeks.

What do you think? Are you suffering from The Blues yourself? If so, what is your point of view on it, and of this site, and your future involvement in this community?

Thanks for this post. I found it because I subscribed to your feed through RSS. I haven't been on the Urgent Evoke site much in the past 2-3 weeks except to read the comic book installments. I got the Blues as the email spam increased and I felt increasingly disconnected from the narrative and some of the politics. I was interested in some of the threads critiquing the politics behind Urgent Evoke and the World Bank. It's nice that the forum allows for that. The blind optimism of some players, which seemed to confuse a critical take on Urgent Evoke for the negative attacks that were happening in some places, was also discouraging for me.

Since i have had things going on in my life that require a lot of attention and work (in the best way) I haven't been able to keep up with activity on the site such that I can find the conversations and contributions that motivate me. I am convinced that putting in the effort here is worth it because there are many quality contributions. Alas, my time and attention are invested elsewhere.

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
