What do you carry with you?

Hi,

As some of you know I am yet another student intrigued by coworking and doing my thesis on the topic of mobile work. I am in the process of designing a few products for this venture and was wondering what most mobile workers carried with them on a daily basis when you leave the house? Please let me know what you carry with you when you have a chance. I am interested!

You can email me directly at [email protected] (I recently got married, thus the different last name) if you don’t wish to share with the entire group.

Thanks for your time.

Cool study!

My iPhone is the ultimate mobile communication device, mostly because almost my entire workflow exists online. Anywhere I can get internet, I can work.

Beyond that, I carry a Macbook Air (soon a 13" Macbook Pro) for a focus on portability because I am moving around so much.

It’s worth noting that I do keep a 24" iMac on my desk at IndyHall for “heavy lifting” tasks.

I live a highly digital lifestyle, I haven’t carried a paper/pen notebook in 4 years.

That’s interesting, I feel like no matter how advanced technology becomes, you just can’t do without the conventional notebook and pen. I’ve noticed a lot of people have them when I visited coworking sites. I guess it depends on what you do and how you work.

Thanks Alex.

cell phone (no iPhone yet)
17 Inch Macbook Pro

Half page paper notebook - we like to scribble before we go digital. There seems to be something impersonal about taking notes with a client on your laptop. I think they feel your surfing or working while there talking - that will probably change

I like the spiral bound TUFF BOOK

24 Inch iMac in studio with extra 17 inch old cinema screen with the HUGE power supply adapter (love it)

To go anywhere: iPhone, small wallet, a few plain unruled index cards, an extra fine sharpie, a rubber band, keys. Wish my iPhone was a better index card and could unlock my doors and pay for stuff :slight_smile:

To go to work work: add MacBook pro, short bit of power cord, iPhone cable, Bart pass - all in a sling backpack with hidden pockets spewing receipts.

Speaking of Receipts, as a fairly new mobile business owner, what do you consider worthy receipts to hold on to?

Hi people, this is Marvio from Florianópolis/Brazil! This is my first
experience with coworking, so, let's see what happen!!!

Answering your question Diana, I carry a lap top (HP Pavilon -
4GB-320HD), e simple cell phone, an appointment book and pen (I never
know when my inspiration will come, so I always carry that), visiting
card and cable force for note book; every thing inside a simple brief

I hope it helps you in your thoughts! I don't have a perfect writen

Hi Diana, I’ve blogged about how this has evolved for me over the years.

This is the 2006 version: http://perfectpath.co.uk/2006/10/31/the-one-man-social-media-empire/

And here’s something from this time last year: http://perfectpath.co.uk/2008/09/04/social-media-empire-lite/

These day’s I’m really trying to keep from constantly carrying everything around on my shoulder. The essentials are notepad, mobile (still on the N95!) and iPod Touch and much of the time a bottle of water!

interesting stuff, thanks for asking.

Curve. Can't give up the keyboard. Then my Sony Vaio with Verizon
aircard. With a few tweaks 6hr battery life. Stereo bluetooth
headphones. Water bottle. post-its. wallet and keys and I'm out the

work whenever and wherever I can in between shuttling 3 kids around.

I'll second the BlackBerry Curve. That and a pen and small packet of
index cards are the only things I always carry.

If I'm going to do work, I add a backpack with a MacBook, ThinkPad
T400, and a cheap pad of paper, not to mention earbud headphones.

iPhone + headphones
wallet (sometimes there's business cards in there - I tend to be
horrible about carrying them!)
pen
small pad of paper (usually just scraps stapled together)
chapstick
pile of hair ties (I've got a lot of it)

To/from work:
15" macbook + cord
moleskin planner
business cards
shades
various bills/bits of paperwork I think I'll actually get to if I
carry them around :slight_smile:
another pile of hair ties
water bottle
coffee cup

Good luck!

I'll second the BlackBerry Curve. That and a pen and small packet of
index cards are the only things I always carry.

If I'm going to do work, I add a backpack with a MacBook, ThinkPad
T400, and a cheap pad of paper, not to mention earbud headphones.
