Evergreen core team leader Cody Thornton tells this story of how he first met Tim MacDonald, and learned about evergreen.
When Cody was in his third year at Northeastern University School of Law, the Law School hosted a symposium on Experiential Learning in the Law. Cody presented his concept of using studio/charette structures for learning the law.
He tells how during a break after his presentation, he was “tackled in the hallway” by this guy who wanted to talk more about studio teaching and learning, fiduciary duty (!???) and how pensions invest our retirement reservoirs (!!!?????).
That guy was Tim MacDonald.
That talk became evergreencore.org.
The journey from Tim’s personal passion to the movement to reform finance by adding a new form to the financial system, and to change the way we create our future as a consequence, by getting superfduciaries to go evergreen, is punctuated by many similar experiences of Tim “tackling” people who Tim could see what they, at the time, could not: they had important contributions to make.
Some found Tim had worthwhile things to say, and was offering an interesting solution to a Worthy Problem.
Some of those have agreed to included in the list.
