Atmota is an online magazine focusing on contemporary Asian stories and providing analysis on culture, politics, economics, and technology. At the heart of Atmota is a devotion to data and finding the personal and societal threads within.

In the years to come, Asia will continue to yield its economic and cultural influence on a global scale, and its sense of singularity will be further tested and defined. The challenge is not only to distill what is newsworthy, but to hopefully reveal the clues and trends that will outline how East and West will integrate into a shared future.

Atmota = (Atom + Modal)
A kernel that conveys a larger pattern.
