Technomads / Ignite Toronto 4 / Sept 2010 Technomads / Ignite Toronto 4 / Sept 2010 Presentation Transcript

  • The things we own end up owning us.
  • We all buy too much shit
  • Most of it we rarely use
  • Some of it we never use
  • We buy this crap and then we store it. And then we brag about how much stuff we have.
  • But honestly that just turns us into stuff babysitters. Good job. Really.
  • Americans spend $22 Billion on storage every year.
  • More than 7.5 sq ft of storage space per person in the US
  • Most of this crap we could just borrow from a friend. I’m not saying don’t spend money. I’m saying think more about what you are spending your money on.
  • The one who dies with the most toys wins?
  • Bullshit.
  • The one who dies with the most experiences wins.
  • WTF experiences? •Go places •See things •Try new stuff •Have dinner with friends •Ride your bike •Fuck the same old shit and your lame comfort levels
  • I have an idea. (as represented by this awesome lightbulb)
  • Maybe spend your money on doing things rather than buying things. Spend your time experiencing things rather than buying things.
  • “Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” - Dr. Ferris Bueller, Esq
  • Modern technology helps
  • So what are you waiting for? You only get one shot at life. Are you doing it right?
  • I’m trying to start a REVOLUTION
  • Neo-minimalistic über connected travel addicts thetechnomads.net
