For those of you experiencing Pollen for the first time, here’s a quick overview of who we are: “Pollen is a community comprised of civic-minded connectors who share ideas, career and civic engagement opportunities and peer-to-peer recognition to create positive impact and personal and professional growth for its members.” Pollen volume 1 was shared with several hundred members on December 4, 2009.

October 6 – John Beardsley Lecture with Michael Chorost, PhD (via Kelly Groehler and Lynn Casey) The late John Beardsley, APR, was a cerebral, thoughtful man who always kept the next big thing on his radar—from psychology, technology and quantum physics to neuroscience and even pop culture. Beardsley unabashedly shared his futuristic vision through engaging, dramatic lectures that moved groups to look to the future, themselves. He passed away in September 2010, leaving a lasting legacy to the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). Minnesota PRSA, Padilla Speer Beardsley and the University of Minnesota will together proudly honor Beardsley’s contributions to public relations and business on Thursday, Oct. 6, 2011. Please join us as we present a lecture by Michael Chorost, Ph.D., a technology theorist with an unusual perspective: his body is the future. Chorost has written two books, including World Wide Mind: The Coming Integration of Humanity, Machines and the Internet and Rebuilt, a memoir about recovering his hearing with a cochlear implant.
