We are going to open a co-operative in November 2016, where all neighbors can buy a share and become owner of Polly & Bob. All legal decisions will go through the co-operative that means full power to the members. In this way we insure that no commercial interest will ever enter Polly & Bob. All the other neighborhood networks are venture capital based and are meant to make money. Money’s interest comes first ad their place. As soon as possible we will finance or non-profit organization through membership fees of 2€ a month. 2€ for the neighborhood.

Polly & Bob is a community project. The finance has to come from the community. In our world today the people who pay have the power too. So we need to finance through the community.

Our main goal is to shape the digital society by using the internet to bring people together offline.

Accordingly we want to do the digital right too. That means to us first and foremost to give the power to the user of the platform. In regular frequencies we ask our members to decide on important questions. As a member you become part of the neighborhood board where we discuss issues and decide on alternatives. The users should decide what happens with their data, what happens with their money, what values the organization should follow. We are going to have the best privacy terms, because the user will decide on them!

We give the power to the members! Join us now!

If you want to stay anonymous, you can do so. We will not check or verify your address. We will not show your address on the platform (only the distance to you). Other platforms that do so need this data to offer good services for their advertisement clients. As we are not an advertisement platform we will not need the data. More important to us: we want to do the digital right and that means to be able to stay anonymous. You can use a fake name too. Offline you can show your face and give your real name. Neighbors who not behave well can be blocked and flagged, we will erase accounts that do anything inappropriate. Our culture lives from like-minded people. Our integrity lives from being able to stay anonymous.

About us

  • We are a neighborhood network. We connect you with your neighborhood. On this platform, in your localboard, and on our famous real-life events that we organize.
  • We are an answer to the ongoing digitalization of our society. We use the digital to connect people offline.
  • We are an answer to economical struggle of the many. Sharing begins in the neighborhood.
  • We are an answer to the rising solitude. We offer fulfilling (offline) encounters.
  • We are an answer to the declining solidarity. We make it easy to participate in local decisions.
  • We are an answer to the rising violence in the world. We are totally inclusive and take everybody as part of the community. We save resources, to stop wars on resources.
  • We are an answer to ecological problems. We use resources more clever and spread ideas of sustainability through our network.
  • We are a public space. We need public spaces in order to discuss common decision making.
  • We are a bridge. We are a bridge for people who are new in town to connect. We are a bridge to people who are here for long to the new people coming to town.
  • We are on a mission to change the way we live together in the neighborhood.
  • We dream of a world where social well-being is measured not by the number of Facebook friends you have, but by the number of neighbors who greet you by your first name during a casual walk down the street.
  • We dream of a world heading towards localization instead of globalization, where you can find more richness and value in your own neighborhood than anywhere else in the online or offline world.
  • We dream of a world where people come together in their local communities to share their wealth, knowledge, and talents with their fellow neighbors.
  • We dream of a world where each and every one of us, no matter what race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, origin, ability, wealth or age can find a community to belong to, a door to knock on, and a place to call home.
  • We dream of this world, because we believe that good things happen when neighbors come together.
  • We dream of this world, because we believe that local offline connection is what truly makes us human.
  • The world needs more connected neighborhoods.
  • Join us in the new neighborhood movement, and let’s make this dream come true.

Polly & Bob is a central support organization surrounded by localboards that act in the neighborhood.
In each neighborhood we want to establish a localboard, that organizes the neighborhood. You want to open a localboard in your neighborhood? just get in touch volker@pollyandbob.com
The central support unit serves these localboards with hints, templates, and by management of the board of neighbors (our common decision making organ), and by providing the platform.
Really local small business are part of the neighborhood community, very often a vivid part. We don’t want to exclude them. We also do not want to depend on advertisement money, because we believe that a real social network shall be owned by its users, why we finance our activities on a non-profit basis via small membership fees of 2€ per month.
And of course we do not want to bother the members with advertisement they don’t want to see. Our solution is to make the local businesses only visible when the user wants to see it. He has to press a button to un-filter the offers of local businesses. These businesses will not be charged per view or for an advert, they will simply be charged the 2€ membership fee.
Local businesses that do not stick to the rule will be excluded immediately forever. No way back!
We are a non-profit company. We need money to cover our expenses.
When each of us pays only 2€ per month we can do miracles together!
We don’t need to feed venture capitalist. We put all our money back to the neighborhood.
We talk about the small sum of 2€ per month. 2€ for the neighborhood! 2 € to re-vive the neighborhdood.
Please join and support!
We are heading towards a new age: the digital age!
First time in history everything will get digitalized.
More and more social connections go online.
We want to shape the digital society by using the technology to bring people together offline.
Our hope is that we understand better and better what makes us human: coming together offline, spending time in real encounter.
In shaping the digital society we want to do the digital right too:
1. Using the internet as a tool, a really powerful tool to connect very easily and access the world around us. Not being used by the tool, to make money tarring us online to sell more advertisement.
2. Giving the power to the users. Users decide on privacy terms, algorithms, sustainability model, management, first in the board of neighbors, later in the co-operative.
3. Build a social network not an advertisement platform, where users become the product for the advertisement clients.
4. Being able to stay anonymous. We need to have a space to turn back to us. When the internet knows more about me than I know myself, I am endangered to manipulation, especially when I don’t know or cannot decide on the algorithms that decide what I will get to see.
Polly & Bob is an invitation to do the digital right.
For Facebook it’s too late, we cannot get out of the trap. For a neighborhood network its on us. Only one network will stay. Let it be the right one and support Polly & Bob.
Let us do the digital right!
Polly & Bob are two neighbors that have found out. Its worth it to spent time together.
Polly is a single mother. She is a singer in a band.
Bob is from Pittsburg. He is new in town. He is new in Berlin.
