Evokation - Solving Real-World Problems in Virtual Gamspace

The project I would like to work on would be to create an online simulation game that would mirror real world systemic problems and allow players to work together in order to create systemic solutions. The game would by playable through an internet connection or SMS messaging. There would be a crossover effect wherein real-world events (such as the BP Deepwater oil spill) would change outcomes within the game. Likewise, players would be encouraged to take in-game solutions out into the…

The Evoke Manifesto

We live in unprecedented times with the fate of humanity in peril. It is not a question of saving the planet - the planet can go on without us. It is not a question of saving the ecosystem - the ecosystem will adapt, although perhaps in a much different form that we know now.

The challenge before us is whether or not we can save ourselves.

Team Evoke is a network of individuals who believe that humanity is worth saving. We work…

Add Fun and Games for an Energetic Evoke!


I thought Urgent Evoke was great fun and a really intriguing way to learn about complex issues. I particularly like the way that the game interacts with real people and encourages real actions.

However, I think that the challenges became a little repetitious and started feeling a bit too much like "homework." Kids in California already have a ton of homework and unless this was part of a class activity, the…

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.
