A few weeks ago, I became an agent in a global network of social innovators. Urgent EVOKE: A Crash Course in Saving the World opened on March 3, 2010. It’s a game, a social experience, a learning experience, and a awareness all in one. It was designed and is directed by Jane McGonigal for the World Bank Institute.
My first impression
EVOKE has been open four weeks and already has more than 13,787 members. The game will last for about 10 weeks, concluding on May 12,2010, with a new quest and a new mission unlocked each week. In the first mission agents were asked to describe ourselves 10 years later, in the year 2020. The imagine part of the mission is more enjoyable than the rest because I get to make up things, work for my dream job, arrange my life the way I would want it to and basically playing the creator of my life.
