Do you need more gadgets to accomplish your work? Walking through the British museum a few years ago looking at early copies of the Bible, I was reminded those early translators didn’t have Google, or any other sophisticated technology. But they did remarkable work that lasts. Back then I posted this quote from Hugh Macleod:
“There’s no correlation between creativity and equipment ownership. None. Zilch. Nada. Actually, as the artist gets more into his thing, and as he gets more successful, his number of tools tends to go down. He knows what works for him. Expending mental energy on stuff wastes time.”
What do you think? Could you do great work with fewer gadgets? If your mobile phone, laptop, pad, or Internet access was taken away tomorrow, how would that effect your impact on the world?
