Oliver has been in the hospital since Friday and should be getting out today (Tuesday). I spent the whole weekend at the hospital, with Tanya. What is really cool is who connected we now are. Even though I was at the hospital, I was still able to tap into my inner geek.
I have always been fascinated by computers, ever since my dad introduced me to one when I was 5. Since then, computers have become more and more integrated into my life.
This means that for 25 years of my 30 year life, I have been using computers. Which is to say, computers are more apart of my day then coffee, so being confined to a hospital for the weekend, I brought along my setup.
The always connected setup
With the right tools, I am able to do pretty much anything I can do at home. The best part is that I don’t have to carry around a huge laptop to be connected. Here is what I have on me:
- a wifi iPad
- a cell phone
- an iPad keyboard
- a suite of applications to enable me to work
- a dropbox account
- a gmail account
With these tools and services I am able to communicate with family and friend, update this website, work on a completely different website and stay entertained.
The picture above is me hacking away on my iPad working on a website after a long day at the hospital.
