Event description
Join NEWaukee and author John Zeratsky for a series of events about how to get offline in an online world.

About this Event

Technology was meant to connect us, but today, nearly half of Americans report feeling lonely. Research shows that when we connect offline, we feel better and live longer—yet the 21st Century is optimized for remote-control living that's online and intermediated.

Let's change the narrative. Join NEWaukee and author John Zeratsky for a series of events about how to get offline in an online world. To connect with friends, neighbors, and communities. To make time for creative projects and rewarding hobbies. To contribute to your world, enjoy the movement of time, and learn to create space for rest and reflection.

Each event will blend interviews, talks, and interactive activities to create a unique offline experience. You’ll leave with new perspectives and concrete ideas for staying sane, rooted, and focused in a world that's more distracting than ever.

January's event is about how technology gets in the way of connecting offline. Our featured guest will be Kelly Fitzsimmons, a technology entrepreneur whose journey has ranged from cybersecurity to voice recognition to virtual reality. In addition to her thoughtful perspective on technology, Kelly will share stories of how she and her teams have overcome distraction and disconnection to produce meaningful work together. Limited spots available. Ticket includes complimentary beer and wine.

Off/Line is hosted by John Zeratsky, the bestselling author of Make Time and Sprint. For nearly 15 years, John was a designer for technology companies. At Google Ventures (GV), he helped develop the design sprint process and worked with close to 200 startups, including Uber, Slack, 23andMe, Flatiron Health, Blue Bottle Coffee, and Nest.
