Sorry, this entry is only available in German.
We’ll be talking on two exciting topics in June and July: about the “Future of Work” and our place in the “Internet of Things”. For this we’re invited to the “Work Awesome – Conference on the Future of Work”, the “Work Awesome – Conversations on the Future of Work”, and “The IoT – Kitchen Talk – ROBOTS, CYBORGS, SENSORS”. Please come by, say hello, and join the conversation!

Looking for a smart solution to free your surrounding from being clued to their screens? You found it! You can now invite your partner, friends, colleagues and kids to a shared Offtime. Check out our latest release that allows you to invite other people to your Offtime (Version 3.0+ on Android, Version 2.0+ on iOS). The ones who have Offtime already installed get a direct push notification directly to their screen that they just have to accept in order to go into an Offtime with you, everybody else gets a charmant email that you would like to give them their attention with a link to download the app and accept the invite. At the end of the shared Offtime an overview is shown with who stayed for how long. You’ll be surprised about the magic effect this has!
Enjoy your shared Offtimes!

1. Schweizer Digital Detox von ( OFFTIME ) – Sei mit dabei und erlebe Freiheit und Fokus! Continue reading
Dear ( OFFTIME )-Fan,
we proudly present two events – one free, one behind the paywall – together with the Berlin Tech Open Air Festival:
Why analog counter-culture will disrupt technology
We invite you to a fireside chat between André Wilkens, author of “Analog is the new Organic” – a book that has recently seen a massive hype – and Michael Dettbarn, designer and co-founder of ( OFFTIME ). Wilkens and ( OFFTIME ) both promote human approaches to the problems of hyperconnectivity and the age of distraction: After all, our way of life has to follow individual needs and desires and not vice versa. Together with you we want to exchange perspectives on the power of (digital) renouncement and ask: Where’s the human in the digital?

The Power of Off in a Connected World,
talk by Michael Dettbarn
Today, getting off the grid has become almost a political statement and it is for many a form of personal liberation. Their aim: finding and shaping environments where digital connectivity is limited and other social rules apply. These “other spaces” are not only good for our health, productivity and creativity – they also hold the potential for transformative change by offering opportunities to play, experiment and try out new utopian ideas.
