One Spark Results

53,299 votes were placed to disperse a crowd fund 0f $250,000.

Check out who got what…

As a brief review here is a quick look at some creators who caught my eye.  In recap I think that with 115,00 visitors and over 53,000 votes submitted there was a bit of dilution for the pay-out.  As a matter of holding my cards and realizing that the votes really counted, I only placed a vote for 3 creators: The Red Sable, Dr. Zap, and Nerdular (since Nerdular reciprocated the voting) It took effort to stave off the hecklers who wanted my vote so badly that they offered to walk me to the voting kiosk.  I used the app program for voting and it worked fine for me.   Next year there might be some tweaking of voting/venue process.  Also, these pay-outs are pending submission of each creator’s W-tax forms.  Maybe it will be adjusted again for monies based on legal paper trails.

BoneShaker (an animated 3D design made from home rendered supplies with up-cycled materials, and a real crowd pleaser) Location was at the lobby of downtown Public library:  532 votes, $2,495.36  Based on the artist bio, funds will be used to build a time machine.
