( WHY YOU’LL WANT TO TUNE IN )
“How we live with technology is the cultural issue of the next half century.” - New York Times
How we live with technology matters. It matters to our work, our relationships, our creativity, and our communities. JOMO is gaining momentum as a conscious choice to disconnect and reconnect to the tangible joys of life. Life isn't straight forward and there's no one-size-fits-all solution to finding balance in a wired world.
Find yours. Experience joy.
