I was inspired by Hugh’s recent post on his portable studio, I got thinking about what I carry around every day – what are the tools of my trade?
My main use bag is the Rapha backpack from the legendary cycling company. The build quality of their stuff is second to none and this bag is no exception. The detailing is wonderful with little touches of their trademark pink here and there. The bag itself has a good selection of external and internal pockets including a laptop divider. It’s big enough to house my essentials while being small enough that I have to judiciously pick what I carry. Here’s today’s inventory
That’s my daily load – all I need (and more really) to get my gig done. What’s your haul look like?
My latest official card – this one has my job title as Editor: Next at Microsoft – which is where the tag below takes you. You can grab a Tag reader for most mobile devices by browsing to http://gettag.mobi from your device. My other job title is Senior Director, Storytelling which according to Fortune.com is a “wacky” job title :)

As you may have noticed, things have gotten pretty slow with updates to this blog of late – it’s been a hard decision to not post as much here given Geek in Disguise has been a labour of love for about 5 years. My new home is taking up much of my time though so if you haven’t had chance to wander over to Next at Microsoft, now may be a good time. The content is pretty similar (though some of the random stuff is now on my Posterous site) so I’d encourage you to update your bookmarks or RSS settings and sign up to Next as it’s where I’m going to be putting a lot of my energy in 2011. There will still be the odd post here for stuff that doesn’t fit with Next.
Here’s a glimpse of what you may be missing on Next
I’m also an occasional author of posts on the official Microsoft Blog – a few recent posts have been
Microsoft Welcomes the Boys & Girls Club to CES 2011

So come on over to Next…the water is warm
spotted in Vegas…one Hugh MacLeod, looking well, drawing brilliantly and quick witted as ever. Hats off to Intel for nabbing him for the show!
as for The processor is an expression of human potential – it’s created a ton of jobs, wealth and amazing things so I can’t disagree with that.
