To the Cosmos 🌌: We can finally share a *major* secret w/ you!
We can't believe this dream is real 👀
DD HQ here. This week, we have some pretty big news to share. So, for today we're shifting our philosophical corner of the Internet into a new, every-so-often series called ‘To The Cosmos’ that will give a special, behind-the-scenes peek into what we're building at DD.
With that…big drumroll! Because we're finally able to share a major secret we've been keeping: The Daydreamers app is officially here (for Early Access members!!! 🪐🌌🔥).
Before we get into the what, let us explain the why: if you've been in our orbit from the very beginning, you know that when we set out to create a way for all of us adults to get off the work-sleep hamster wheel + into the flow we immediately wrote off being on technology more often.
In our brains, creating an app was completely out of the question. Wasn't tech the root of all our issues?
Well, it's complicated, we've learned. The issues we're facing in society (hint: burnout, a terrible relationship with productivity + self-worth, etc) aren't just an Internet thing. Bertrand Russell was writing about them all the way back in 1930.
Most importantly, we've heard from you. After many months of testing and getting feedback 💭 from our Early Access crew - our team decided that the most powerful way we can live more fulfilling, meaningful + beautiful lives was to put technology back in the place where it belongs: as an aid to help us create more often + live life better, rather than the main point.
Basically, to help us all become more human, less robot.
And now, this means we're one tiny step closer to our big vision: giving the world back it's creative spark.
Onto the important stuff - TLDR ab the app: We've spent the last few months crafting a digital experience that is deeply rooted in the analog world - tethering us back to *reality* by helping us create IRL, guided by tech and real humans.
While the Daydreamers app is only one part of the experience, trust that each + every choice, from the way we share notifications to prioritizing your creative habits in a slowly + intentionally, is rooted in using technology for good.
Since we're not officially launched, over the next few weeks we'll be sharing a lot more behind-the-scenes of what we're creating. But for now, we're making space to slow down + celebrate 🎉.
Even when you're doing world-changing stuff, it's easy to get caught up in forward motion (cue the burnout hamster wheel). Pausing to appreciate is a major way to push back against the status quo's productivity obsession. You feel us?
So, let's celebrate all of you - our past, current + future members who have been supporting us since Day 1. And, our team @ DD HQ who's bringing all of our dreams into reality 🛸.
With that, we have an extra sprinkle of something else to celebrate: We're giving 25 community members immediate access to the DD membership (+ a special gift 💸!). Respond to this email with a “🛸 emoji" and your thoughts on what creativity means to you + you'll get the special password to sign up ASAP.
No matter what - let's be human > robot way, way, way more often. And make more space to play + dream + create - so we can change the world (and universe) together 🌌.
