“Every single human on this earth wants one thing: a connection...” This idea, echoed by Bryan Kramer during our interview, resonated with me. When we walk down the street, or look at photos in an album, we always look to the eyes, that portal to the other person’s soul. We need a connection, even when we think we don’t. “No man is an island,” right?
Although we are living in the greatest technological and inventive time in all of history, it can isolate us. There are actually great opportunities to connect with our community: finding common musical interests, good tastes, or shared resources. Our mission with Content is to facilitate those connections, to provide a way for our community to know our neighbors and develop stronger empathetic relationships and experiences. With that in mind, we invite you to slow down and read about the lives of these great people featured in this issue. Then, move past the consumption to find ways to connect.
