“We are addicted to our phones not because we rely on them, but to the extent that we recruit them to a harmful project of self-avoidance. They do not mean to hurt us.

Two Desks Available at Friends Work Here

Two desks just opened up at my Brooklyn based co-working space called FRIENDS.

We tend to like folks who love what they do and continuously strive to grow and get better. We appreciate people who love the internet as much as we do. We want doers and kind souls.

Become a FRIEND.
