This is the place I have created for evokers to share more of themselves... I want to create a place that we can get to know one another, a place that we can share above and beyond what we are asked of us in our secret identity quests... lets make Evoke more personal and truly build friendships.
I feel like we are all constructive people working towards common goals, but it seems like we're getting tunnel vision, this is my attempt to find out who you are, So… Continue

Photography is my passion, It always has been but I truly didn't have many opportunities to get into it until I entered my twenties. There is something to be said for that moment, that you just know, man, it swells up inside you... that buzz to me, the creative juices.... like my heart is going to burst... it's that feeling that tells me I got… Continue

Food sharing is a key component to Inuit culture, not everyone in the community has the ability or freedom to hunt, the process of sharing harvested food such as meat, fish and berries has been part of the Inuit lifestyle for generations. When hunters return to… Continue

My dream challenge would ask the EVOKE network to work in collaborative process to come up with ideas on providing communities that are in environmentally inhospitable situations food solutions. My interest in this area has to do with the Inuit in the Arctic, food is shipped in on barges 9 months prior to arrival. You can imagine the foods that can last… Continue

It's my Birthday today, All my friends and family are over and it will be the 10th year in a row that I have asked all the people that care about me to donate my age in cash to the legacy movement. It's not an overly complicated thing to do, I get to sidestep some awkward sweater vests and s*** I don't need to provide people across the planet the opportunity to a basic human right that they should never have to do without. By the time I am 37, I will have donated almost 7000 dollars! I suppose… Continue

I don't know if it's been looked at but what about static electricity
It's everywhere and it's free. I think it could be applied in very small terms, perhaps a strip of material in the crotch of your pants or an armpit, nothing overly noticeable (even within the fabric itself!) but something to amplify and store a natural occurring process. Or how about up here in Canada come winter time, when… Continue

TERRAPOWER - is an emerging adaptation that takes the waste of nuclear reactors and disposes of it while providing vast amounts of energy, economic stimulation, a safer way to use uranium with less chance of human error and could reduce the energy related carbon emissions to ZERO!
A global problem requires a global solution. …

I am sitting in a modest building just off the coast of the Arctic Ocean, called Paulatuk NWT, Population 450. I am eating supper with my friends that I have now worked with for over 5 years after FINALLY graduating with a master in rural economics. The food we are eating is truly a blend: hunted game (or country food), hydroponically grown greens and milk 2% yep, definitely 2% that was shipped in by plane. The specials things about this meal are: the meat, was from an animal that was not… Continue

I always listen to our politicians trying to solve food security issues by sending planes full of food,
Firstly I think it's preachy that we aim to save the day.
Secondly I think its ridiculous because food security issues are happening in our own backyards.… Continue

Increasing food security for one is good and all....
Multicropping! If one crop fails there is a secondary crop that still brings in revenue, coffee farmers sometimes also grow certain tress, for lumber.. it's an insurance policy that doesn't cost.
And it's organic ;)
utilizing farmland for more than one species of plant at a… Continue

10 years from now, I will be married to my girlfriend, she and I will laugh at some of the things we once thought were relevant, and hopefully of gained perspective on what IS relevant. We will teach our kids (unnamed 1, unnamed 2 ...etc.?) the values that we were lucky enough to learn ourselves, and pass… Continue

So I decided to track down a lady named Jane McGonigal she kinda helped design this game, I figured start from the top and work my down? Rather unorthodox but isn't that what this site is about to be? maybe grassroots and 'fighting the system isn't necessary in this situation?
