What did I do this year? Ready for my 2015 digital detox

alessia-camera-digital-portrait

We’re interconnected. We’re FOMO sufferers. We feel guilty that we’re constantly plugged in.
Alright, when I think I’m not sharing enough stuff on either Twitter or the social media in general, it means I need to step out of the hustle and enter a digital detox rehab retreat.
So, I’m almost ready to leave London and switch off for a bit. 😀

But before leaving, the question is: what did I do this year? Did I work enough? I’m never satisfied and I always think I could have done more. So, this is a great collection of stuff I’ve done and I have to be proud of! Maybe you can be inspired for your new year’s resolutions! 😉

  • Projects need to evolve
    I think we always need to learn & grow, and our projects are just following us. This year we’ve expanded This is Not Art to make the network bigger, involving new people, artists and stories. It has meant step out from a comfort zone we’ve been living during the last 3 years. But it wouldn’t have made any sense keeping it. Now we’re looking for people helping us creating content from all around Europe.

  • I joined a seed-stage startup where things are continually changing
    After two years working at PlayStation, I decided to join Rentecarlo, where things are different, everyday. Goals are set weekly, new ideas just take 1 day to be implemented and if you really want to learn, you can, even if it’s the hard way. Meaning you’re doing a lot of mistakes. And you’re working hard. But I’m having a lot of fun.

  • Be open minded and don’t be scared of sharing your ideas with people
    You need to be a bit lucky and be open to new ideas, tools and experiences. You need also to know you can’t know everything.
    I’ve worked with a bunch of incredible people to create Secret Sauce conference and I’ve learned a lot from the team, from the speakers and myself too.  It’s been un unforgettable experience working with the awesome Vincent, Silvia, Jordan, Gioia, Eva and I hope it won’t be the only one.
  • Collaboration is key, everywhere, every time and interviews are a very important step of establishing one. This year I’ve been interviewed by: 
    Italian Kingdom, an online magazine telling stories of Italians living abroad
    Unco Mag, an online magazine telling stories of people achieving their dreams
    MarketingArena, a very cool digital marketing agency in Italy

Now I’m ready for my digital detox. See you soon! <3

    […] During this year of blogging and consultancy for startups, I realised that, even if women are engaged in amazing projects, they’re less exposed than men and that’s not fair. We’re working twice as much, why can’t we have the same treatment? We’re always involved in diversity and equality topics or easily involved in the fashion industry or blogging contests, but why can’t we just talk about tech or engineering? Is it that strange asking a woman about her love for tech? As I’m in love with tech, I’ve decided to interview the most amazing women I know and not only because we share the same love, but also to give them exposure and highlight what they do. And of course to give you a bit of insight of what I feel about tech. […]

    What did I do this year? My 2017 new year's resolutions – Alessia Camera

    […] Last year’s digital detox article have ben tremendously successful, so I decided to keep it like a yearly meeting. But before, what am I worried about this year? Last year I was experiencing FOMO, this year I see everyone’s digital bias. How is it possible that everyone’s thinking of appearing rather than learning? People are pushing perceptions rather than been recognised for their work or expertise. What’s going on? Are we getting into a world of people pretending to be, when the internet and information can help us learning everything on a fingertip? […]
