I don’t stuff any more, at least it feels that way. I have a mini bookshelf, no CDs, no newspaper tear-outs, ideas/thoughts that live in a digital diary and on the Internet, and a few frames.
But I do own a lot of digital products which I buy in micro-payments. These purchases includes apps, music, and Kindle books from $.99 to $10.
The fact is that I’m still buying stuff; it’s just not physical so it makes me feel like I own nothing.
I also get more out of my digital items. Before you had to come to my house to see my photos. Now virtually all of my images reside on Facebook, Instagram, and on Flickr in a social contract.
These are yours as much as mine, and I won’t take these photos away: you can comment on them, you can tag them, and they are as much of a part of our friendship as they are my own objects. - Richard Banks
We’re still living in a post-Napster mentality with the perception that the Internet is mostly free, even if we’re paying in a little bites that don’t take up any physical space.
