What's in Your Backpack (or Messenger Bag)?
Hey, everyone, I've got a question: What technology do you carry with you on a daily basis? Which things can you not imagine working without?
I'll get things started: On an average day my messenger bag has my 15" MacBook Pro Retina, an iPad 2, a Kindle Paperwhite, a 1 TByte USB drive, and assorted cables and power blocks. There's also a composition book, a bunch of pens, and a small cloth bag that holds stevia packets, salt substitute packets, tea bags, non-dairy creamer packets, and other assorted condiments. What else? Oh, yes, a 3-way outlet expander (for being a good neighbor at coffee shops and airport boarding gates) and some earphones (or a set of headphones connected to the bag with a carabiner). An iPhone 4 is generally in a pants pocket (with a Leatherman multi-tool in another pocket).
That's my basic "office in a bag." What does yours look like?
