It’s always nice when an idea has a little bit of staying power. A few weeks ago, Yahoo Health featured a piece about 8 Ways to Embrace JOMO, a reference to the “Joy of Missing Out that I wrote about a few yearsa ago, after being inspired by Caterina on the Fear of Missing Out. From there it bubbled up in a few places online, which is a welcome contrast from most things on the web, which disappear quickly and seldom value conversations that start on personal websites.
We all owe @caterina a round of applause, because anybody else who coined "FOMO" would have had a TED talk & 2 and books about it by now.

As when [in 2014](http://www.jwt.com/blog/consumer_insights/whats-big-100-things-to-watch-in-2013/:>JWT’s annual list of things to watch named JOMO a key concept for 2013 (and revisited the idea <a href=), when it inspired more discussion), I don’t think this is some particular insight on my point so much as it’s an articulation of a larger concept in culture that just didn’t have a convenient name.
