LEARN2: Kenya's Dilemma

Agent Shakwei Mbindyo posed a question for us all here: should smallholders in African countries grow food to export to Europe? In her comment Agent Jen Shaffer expanded the question: she knows that many African nations export flowers to Europe. Are either one of these, or both, a good idea for Kenya and Kenyans? Shakwei asks, does "food miles" or other environmental concerns make this a… Continue

Ken Eklund 2020 IMAGINE 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 and 10


It’s March 10, 2020. I’m 62 years old. I’m inoculating wood mulch with Pleurotus spawn in the cool dampness of a cave, a welcome relief from the heat outside. It’s strangely calming to think like a mushroom spore, to let each microscopic bit fall where it has the best chance to awaken and grow.

This cave is a hundred years old. It was dug by hand to store wine casks, back when… Continue

LEARN1: Streamlining

"If you want to make something 10 times cheaper, remove 90 percent of the material."

The secret to this secret is "material." For me, this does not mean physical mass. Objects can be heavy with cultural, intellectual or emotional material, top-heavy with assumptions. Social interactions, in particular: sometimes I find that just removing my ego makes them 10 times better.

Hi Ken, thanks for your comment. I am traveling and with a very precarious connection, so forgive me if I do not reciprocate by looking up your blog straight away. I will, though. :-)

Hi Ken, I did a little research on you before accepting your friendship request. It is my nature and not necessarily a reflection on you. Obviously, you have passed my review. I am intriged by your request. What is it about my profile or Evoke nature do you find appealing? How may it benefit you? and me? and the greater community?
Be In Good Health.

Hi Ken! Thank you for welcoming me! My fundraising game-I don't know what I'm going to call it yet, it's my first game, but I've got Steve Havelka of the Brick Engine on my side, so I know it will be playable in a month or so. And I have 6 years of fundraising experience under my belt, so I know what the tasks will be. Plus, I can draw, so I can make the avatars and backgrounds. It will be 16 bit, so not too difficult. And there will be some challenging running and jumping sections too, I do want to keep it interesting. I look forward to having more to show you!

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.
