Speaking of Dwell magazine, has anyone actually subscribed to it? Any
value for technomads/minimalist living? From what I see on their
website, it's more about showcasing "artsy" living spaces and extreme
styles, not speciifically anything about downsizing life, technomadia
or minimalism.

Comments?

I had a subscription a few years back. It's really more design focused although it seems to have slightly more of an ecology / sustainability outlook than other magazines in that area (e.g. Architectural Digest).

It's not aimed at minimalism as a philosophy, although it tends toward minimalism as an aesthetic. I certainly can't recall any articles on technomadia / frugality / downsizing.

I subscribe, have done so since year one.  Lots of value in seeing things in a new way.

It always makes me chuckle when I see our self-created name of 'technomadia' used as a more general term.  Technomadia is our own personal identification that we created when we set out.. it's kinda like a shared last name to us.   I believe the term 'technomadism' would be the more general usage of the word.

Point noted, but my intent was to liken the word to the actual
grammatical expansion of the term by adding 'ia' at the end, much like
'academia' or 'bacteria'.. The term "technomadism" to me sounds too
close to "masochism" (audibly) :)

How about I use "technomadium" (much like 'bacterium') instead..

Or "technomadicissitude". Doesn't really make much difference, people generally won't have a clue what you're talking about.
