The Japanese Concept of Omakase: I’ll leave it to you

This week I had the pleasure of collaborating with Chang Che on a video essay on the Japanese concept of “Omakase,” which literally means “I’ll leave it to you.” But the word means more than that. It evokes a calculated surrender to another, a leap of faith towards the unknown, and a willingness to relinquish control of a situation.

Chang discusses what we lose when we have the ability to control too much of our time in a techno, post-pandemic world.
