Pollination and Bloom Network were founded by former Evolver “Sporeganizers”, who produced community events for the Evolver online social network than ran from 2007 through 2012. That network was based on 1) “The Augmented Social Network” white paper written by members of LinkTank, formed through the first International Planetwork Conference in 2000, and 2) the original Evolver project which was a visionary print magazine and a nascent concept for a collaborative action and business network. From it emerged a global community who wanted to meet in person to share ideas and create innovative civic actions together. Thank you to the founders of both iterations of Evolver for helping us find “the others”. Sean Parker catalyzed the start of the network with a $250,000 donation in 2008, and we’ve since received two donations totaling $24,000 from the Thriving Resilient Communities Collaboratory.
