My Experiment With Digital Nomadicism

  1. I only brought my iphone to sxsw and felt pretty connected. but then again I'm – gasp – laptopless anyway…so I don't really know what I'm missing.I also rely heavily on the cloud, as its not uncommon for me to jump between 3 or 4 computers in a single day. I'm all about lugging around the minimum. So if you can get by on the touch I say go for it!

  2. I could totally live only on my iPhone.The only reason I bring a laptop anywhere is so I can SSH into servers in a pinch if something goes wrong. Most trips, my laptop acts as nothing more than a big battery for the iphone.This Summit I'll be traveling with the eee and likely won't even crack it open.

  3. I have been trying using just the touch since I got it for Christmas. Unfortunately I find typing more than a few sentences very taxing. For any serious writing (which I am supposed to do with reasonable frequency) think I will still need a real keyboard. (This took 3 minutes to type with corrections!)

  4. Haha… I know the feeling. It took me about a month or two to really get(somewhat) proficient with the Touch's keyboard. I'm a longtime Blackberryuser, so I had to learn some new muscle memory skills. I still have theBlackberry, but find that I'm quickly getting up to speed with the Touch.Nothing will ever replace a “real” keyboard, tho! It's like playing realguitar instead of Guitar Hero 🙂

  5. The problem I have is that I prefer a large screen – the bigger the better. I've got the 17″ MacBook Pro, not because the 15″ is a lot worse, but simply for the extra screen space. If I could have a lightweight lappy with a 22″ screen, I'd take it! In fact, the recent issue of Mac|Life has an artist's conception on the cover of a MacBook with fold-out screens on either side… I'd buy one of those in a heartbeat.There was a trend for a while where phones were getting smaller and smaller and smaller–pre-iPhone–and I couldn't figure out why people wanted everything smaller. As far as I'm concerned, I'd be thrilled if the iPhone added another inch or two 😉
