Hi πŸ‘‹ I’m Jay Springett

Writer, Podcaster, and Strategist

Welcome to thejaymo.net! My homepage on the World Wide Web since 2009

I am interested in the design, administration and flourishing of worlds of all kinds

My primary thesis: All techno-social systems should be seen through the lens of worlds

I’m currently writing my first non-fiction book: The Web Was a Side Quest β€” an exploration of worlds as a medium and how they came to be. My essay collection on World Running can be found at worldrunning.guide

Since 2018 I’ve been making Permanently Moved. A 301 second long personal podcast that condenses complex ideas into digestible bites

An early voice in the Solarpunk movement, I’m committed to envisioning and navigating towards sustainable, regenerative futures

My new interview podcast on creativity and aphantasia is called Experience.Computer

Permanently Moved is an iTunes Top 100 personal journal.
301 seconds in length. Written, recorded and edited by me weekly since 2018.
