Hi friend! (Can we please be friends?) 

My name is Christina Crook, the author 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 do this a lot of different ways. By writing books, essays, and poetry (
and performing said poetry at tech start-up conferences.) By speaking to professionals, students, and parents. By creating thoughtful prompts and ideas to help people live with more joy and peace in a complex world.

You're probably here because you know me, heard me speak, read my book, or some kind soul sent you a JOMO dispatch. However you got here... WELCOME.

____________

A bit of my story:

My first book, 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 long, thoughtful letters on an broke down typewriter to my friend Marisa in Vancouver. The experiment and 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 Times, Psychology Today, NPR and the CBC. At turns, I've been called a poet, a prophet and a pundit. That's just how easy it is to nail down what I do. 

In the winter of 2016, I launched DailyJOMO.com: a playful prompt to remind people of the joys found just beyond their screens. I talked about it on the 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.

_______________

Most of the work I've created up to this point has been made with love and offered for free. I'm here on Patreon because I want to find a sustainable way to keep creating.


Currently, I'm working on:

 - Building a 3-year roadmap for the JOMO movement, with two additional part-time team members 

- Recording 15 pilot episodes of The JOMOCAST podcast (conversations with start-up founders, authors, professional YouTubers and regular folk about technology, embodiment, meaning, and joy)
 
- Helping spearhead National Day of Unplugging across Canada (March 1-2, 2019)

- Completing my next book

_______________

I am ABSOLUTELY pumped about becoming patron-fuelled. To create new talks, books, articles, and resources to thrive in a wired world, I'm relying on the generosity of awesome individuals like you.

The best part about patronage -- we get to make things together.


The two biggest perks of patronage are the PATRON-ONLY feed + EARLY ACCESS to all the stuff I'm working on: new book chapters, talks, research projects, and interviews.

Here on the Patreon we are teammates: we rely on each other

Your support here means the world to me.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU.

- Christina
