“Technomedia” – Technomadia In the Media

We’re honored to be invited to several interviews, present at major conferences, write, teach courses.. and even host a TV show.

Be in touch if you’d like to include us in something.

Want to book us to speak at your event? Well, you can ask. But quite honestly – we designed our lives to be location independent so we didn’t have to be in a particular location at a particular time. We route by serendipity and having commitments is counterproductive to that. But hey, serendipity works out sometimes, and if we’re in your area anyways – we might be open to being a last minute addition.

Publications & Online Courses We Contribute Towards:

  • Escapees RVers Online University – We’re instructors of the ‘Staying Connected’ course
  • RV to Freedom – We regularly help out with this online university by fielding questions on mobile internet.
