How we live with technology matters.

It matters to our relationships, our work, our neighbourhoods, and our mental health. In fact, The New York Times has written that "How we live with technology is the cultural issue of the next half-century."

Hi, I'm Christina Crook, the author of The Joy of Missing Out: Finding Balance in a Wired World and a creator dedicated to helping people make meaning in a digital age.

I am inviting you to help fuel the JOMO movement, a movement to embrace the joy of missing out on the right things. 
____________

A bit about how I got here: 


The Joy of Missing Out: Finding Balance in a Wired World was inspired by my 31-day fast from the Internet where, instead of posting subpar selfies on social, I wrote letters on a broke down typewriter to my friend Marisa in Vancouver. It was a conversation between friends and open tothe world at large. The Letters from a Luddite experiment and the book caught some people's attention and I've since written and talked a lot about technology and daily life in places like The New York TimesPsychology Today, NPR and the CBC.  


In 2016 I traveled to New York City for a two-day intensive with Jonathan Fields, founder of the Good Life Project. There DailyJOMO.com was born. The premise was simple: provide people simple prompts to reconnect them to the joys beyond their screens. I talked about it on the top-rated Art of Manliness podcast and a bunch of guys signed up. The community keeps growing and I keep making it because people say it makes their lives better.

_______________

I am here on Patreon to keep building the JOMO movement.

Currently, I'm working on:

 - Building a 3-year roadmap for JOMO, including a full 2019 content plan, visual rebrand, relaunched website and manifesto.) 

- Recording the first season of The JOMOCAST, exploring the themes of technology, relationships, embodiment, and joy. It's a podcast for people who care about making meaning and finding balance in a digital age. Season One will include interviews with media theorist Marshall McLuhan's grandson, David Suzuki's Queen of Green, tech start-up founder Salimah Ebrahim, and a Jesuit about contemplative practices that can help ground our digital decision-making. 

- Completing the JOMO follow-up book. 

_______________

I am ABSOLUTELY pumped about becoming patron-fuelled.

To build this movement for more joy in a digital world, I'm relying on the generosity of awesome individuals like you.

It's time we choose joy over fear. Empowerment over anxiety. #JOMO over #FOMO. Are you with me?

Your support here means the world to me.

From the bottom of my heart: THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

- Christina
