My colleagues here on ZDNet have been writing lots of great stuff about which technology you'd have to pry from their dead fingers.
I think that when my time comes you'll only find that my fingers are crossed -- you won't find any death grip on a gizmo or gadget.
That's not to say that I don't appreciate my computers, cell phones, hi-fi, DVD players, and all the wonderful technologies: Internet, LCDs, HTML, CSS, etc. I do. It's just that neither one of them is something that I feel couldn't live without.
If I didn't have my MacBook I could use someone else's computer to still do my work because so much of my technology and services are "in the cloud." If I can't find that CD of my favorite music, well, I can go to many other sites and play that album.
Where did I put that photo? I'll search for it online.
More and more, every day, I'm finding out that I don't need to own much. More and more of my life is being digitized and put into the cloud.
I like it, I like not owning CDs, books, computers, etc. Owning physical things is a burden.
The last time I moved apartments I had so much stuff to move and so little help that I felt my stuff owned me. I didn't like that feeling.
Ten years ago my family was flooded out of our home. We had to throw away huge amounts of stuff. It felt good. I was sad to lose a few things of sentimental value but overall, it felt very cleansing.
The more of my life I can put into the cloud and reduce my ownership of physical things the better.
