Prepare to be EVOKED

Posted by Nathaniel Fruchter on 13 Apr under News, People and Ideas

So far, everything that’s happened on EVOKE has exceeded our wildest expectations. Agents have created, thought, discussed, and innovated their ways out of some of the toughest situations facing our planet. Evokations are taking shape. Altogether, some truly amazing ideas have been created on this network. We’d like to give everyone a chance to share their ideas and evokations through the EVOKED conference, starting during early May.

The EVOKED conference is a unique one. The evokation of EVOKE agent Sam Gutekunst (and now an official side project!), it will allow agents from the EVOKE network to give a live streaming five to ten minute talk on the EVOKE-related subject of their choice: an extension of a blog post, the results of epiphanic discussion, an amazing evokation, or maybe something else entirely.

While the EVOKED team is still working out details, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t start thinking about it! We’re currently¬†taking applications for talks. If you think you (or perhaps your evokation team) would be interested in giving a talk, don’t hesitate to sign up. We’re flexible and we’ll read over every application. ¬†Go for it!

    Alas, I do have to worry about the technology. I have a computer but no microphone for it. And I can’t afford a phone right now. So no live presentation from me, though I’d love to give one on the Human Powered School project.

    I believe prerecorded talks will be an option, just note that on the application
