Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Here are some responses to the questions asked in this mission:

1. Which challenges and social problems should Evoke tackle next? Where to build Evoke communities? Who to encourage to play season 2?

One thought was the problem with Muslim extremism and Israel. If we don't promote harmony somehow among Muslims and the Western world, there will be continued conflict and we will not come together as a wh*** world, into one harmonious entity. Therefore, we should build Evoke communities among the Muslim nations. If we bring Muslims into the Evoke network, they will befriend Christians and Jews who are already Evoke members. This is how we strengthen ties among religions: make friends and understand each other, one person at a time. We can do this by encouraging Muslims to play in season 2--and let the solution come out of that community just as the solutions were targeted to come out of Africa in season 1.

2. How would I change the game in Season 2? What new tools would I want as an Evoke agent?

I think a powerful new tool would be some way to create groups (as on the Diigo social networking site). I would change the game by promoting more collaboration: let groupings spontaneously and naturally emerge with the new tool and then require collaborative missions so that group members have to rely on each other. This would be a way of team-building. As it was in season 1, I was able to complete most missions without having to do much networking with others, and could remain pretty isolated if I wanted to. That's what ended up happening for me (because I didn't have time to engage the "social networking" part of this social networking game as much as I wanted to), so some grouping and collaborative mission-work could overcome this.

The new tool should perhaps have a way of logging and/or tracking any collaborative projects (whatever they may be--art projects, educational initiatives, economic partnerships, "sister-city" connections, whatever).

Most importantly, I think that Evoke should work toward deepening the relationships that have already been established. I met some amazing people among the handful of friends I made, and many of them are from all across the globe. I'd like to develop these relationships, so if there is a way that Evoke 2 can encourage this kind of deepening, I think it will make the world a better place....

Other tools: integration with other social networkign tools like diigo. Missions might include "create a diigo group that reflects your new Evoke group's interests and start saving websites to that group" or "create an educational ning that works on Evoke-related world-saving projects that have two or more classrooms from different countries working together in some fashion."

In other words: enhance the collective intelligence nature of this ARG.

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.
