Obsessed with the past or the future, we use our digital tools to become lost in ourselves. Yet, by doing this we neglect the vanishing present and the lessons of the past, leading to the losses of a future that are often preventable. With creative nostalgia, we should pair a message of hope and social kindness to the experience which media and technology brings. By doing so, we are undoubtedly "LostAgain", but this possibility may indeed bring about productivity for individuals, collectives, and society.
