In July, we took our plans for Hive on the road when we tabled at the National Animal Rights Conference in Los Angeles. The response: incredibly positive. Scores of animal advocates signed up and we received lots of valuable feedback.
Everyone recognizes the problem that Hive will solve. They know that peopleâ€™s efforts to help animals are disjointed and they know from experience how hard it is to connect with events, organizations, and people in their communities. Many people came to the table already asking “Where do I sign up?” before we said a word. Half a dozen said they had the idea for a similar project. One had even drawn sketches. As we continue development work, it is clearer than ever before that Hive is a platform whoâ€™s time has come.
