Why I think EVOKE network has not failed

The question that was troubling me for quite sometimes now is a post by Alchemy ‘Episode 3 STORY: Did the EVOKE Network fail?’ The mere utterance of word ‘fail’ always troubles me. I tried to dig deep to find this out. I have put it in my blog post. Fail may have meaning at primary stage as: be unsuccessful, ineffective, vain, unproductive, abortive, futile, fruitless, and disastrous.

At secondary stage, it may take the form of: useless, hopeless, and worthless.

At tertiary stage, it means: uncreative, idle, wasted, pointless, unrewarding, catastrophic, ruinous, and terrible.

Now since in one way of looking at EVOKE is a idea sharing platform. Any idea cannot be futile, hopeless, worthless, and uncreative.

Another way of looking at EVOKE is a show of unity. Hence, it cannot be useless, idle, wasted, and pointless.

Still other way of looking at it is empowering, hence it cannot be unsuccessful, vain, abortive, ineffective, unproductive, fruitless, unrewarding, and ruinous.

The other way of looking at EVOKE is positive thinking. So it cannot be terrible, disastrous, and catastrophic.

Overall at the core of the heart, EVOKE is the change for good; hence my answer to “Did the EVOKE network fail?” is a resounding NO.

@Pradip - Nice post - I agree with you that the Evoke Network that we all belong to did not fail. This ARG is thriving and doing well. However int he graphic novel, Eureka does fail in the mission to spread the home made windmills, even through she inspired the child at the end. And thats ok, because through failure we learn, we innovate and next time we try we have a better chance at success.

Failure is OK, as long as you learn from it and ...you don't make it a habit...

Yes, and if we fail - let us fail hugely!
"Dream big and dare to fail." - Norman Vaughn

Norman Vaughn. Norman died just days after his 100th birthday. That he lived so long surprised none who knew him, for his was an indomitable spirit.

Norman left Harvard to lead Admiral Byrd’s dog teams on his expedition to Antarctica in the late twenties. He mushed dogs for the military, led daring rescue missions, even worked in advertising. He eventually landed in Alaska. Practically homeless, he performed menial jobs to get back on his feet and back on a sled. Norman would race in thirteen Iditarods — his first while in his seventies.

Norman scaled the summit of a mountain Byrd named for him in Antarctica just days shy of his 89th birthday.

I heartily suggest the Disney movie "Meet the Robinson's" as essential for any innovator, inventor, and agent of change. yes it is a animated movie but the lessons in it are timeless. "Keep moving forward"

oh and A Day with Wilbur Robinson is a 1990 children's picture book (slightly expanded for a 2006 reissue) written and illustrated by William Joyce is what the movie is based on and it's great as well.

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

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.
