My technology ecosystem:
Tyler Cowen has an interesting post about what technology he uses. (It is interesting less because it is hugely insightful and more because it is somewhat quirky.) http://marginalrevolution.com/marginalrevolution/2012/05/my-personal-tech-ecosystem.html

My own technology ecosystem, in case anyone is interested:
- Samsung ultraportable laptop, which docks with printer, keyboard, screen, external hard-drive etc when I am home. It runs Windows 7 and the basic size, weight and power are similar to an 11 inch Mac Air;
- HTC HD Desire smartphone, if choosing again I would pick something smaller and lighter;
- A mobile broadband USB stick, a few years old but it still works;
- Dropbox. This is essential, since I have desktops at the Financial Times and the BBC. (Get yours here: http://db.tt/WNQDqmxK);
- A Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 inch. Very nice and light, works well as a hotspot, but the software and choice of apps is noticeably inferior to those on my wife's iPad. (I find the iPad heavy and am very surprised Tyler carries two around.)
- A small Kindle. It's so light, why not? I often forward long documents from magazines or my own work to proofread on the Kindle.

Some curiosities about the way I use software, if anyone is interested: when I use Facebook (which is not much) or Google +, I do so on a separate browser from the browser I typically use. This is partly because I have two Google accounts, and partly to resist temptation. And I have also deliberately signed out of Twitter on my main computers - I tweet via a bookmarking service (Delicious/Andricious + Dlvr.it) and I read other people's tweets only on the Galaxy Tab. This is purely about avoiding distraction.

In case any of that is of interest. What about you?
