Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

So there's a topic up and running in the discussion forums about using EVOKE as a platform for actual collaborative projects. Alchemy showed up to chip in his two cents, and linked to this post made back in January, about the culmination of the next ten weeks of efforts.

This got me thinking. Since I've started to acc**ulate a decent number of friends here on EVOKE from all around the world, I figured I'd create a little space for myself and anyone else who wanted to join to start brainstorming about something we might be able to do if we're interested in getting an EVOKATION award.

As many of you know well from my previous blog posts, my particular interest has been towards bringing clean energy to sub-Saharan Africa, and to some extent, India and China, as well. What are your ideas on this topic? If energy's not your cup of tea, where do your interests fall?

Education, firmly in education. Mind you, since I'm at the point where I'm looking about what to do after my dissertation... I'm slightly interested in what actual products would be realized here by Evoke.

I think that it's great to start thinking about this so far ahead, and getting people to start collaborating now.

About clean energy in India, did you see Husk Power systems? http://www.huskpowersystems.com/

My interests are in building with my hands, engineering--specifically materials science and engineering--and metalworking.

Thanks for your post, Amos. My hope is to keep the conversation going as long as possible.

I hadn't heard of Husk Power; thanks for bringing it to my attention! It looks like a great project -- if I were qualified for any of the open positions they've got, I'd seriously think about signing on.

Even if you don't qualify for positions you may want to contact them, explain Evoke and such and express your interest. Act!

You know, I might just do that. Talk about the spirit of EVOKE right there -- you've got it in spades!

Good luck, and keep us informed!

Yes yes yes! Collaboration is the name of the game. +20 collaboration points for starting the conversation - more to come if you get the ball rolling! Great stuff.

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

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…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.
