Digital Nomad....Rural Nomad!!!

Hello Everyone

I know that it's been awhile since my last post but I was waiting for the right story to post.

And, here it is

Brightflocks story as told by Laura - Jane on the Digital Nomad site. Way to go L-J!

Here is how she started the piece.

"Bruce Eric Anderson recently mentioned that he’s no longer a jet-set nomad who circumnavigates the world in first class. Bruce Eric has happily become a zip-code nomad who stays pretty close to home.

But if there are jet-setters, zip-coders, and fraggers, then what kind of nomad am I? I’m a rural nomad.

My husband and I live on a small Canadian island. We run our Web consulting company from our century-old farm-house, which is surrounded by acres of agricultural land. But we haven’t always been rural nomads who live in farm-country."

Since Laura - Jane and her husband Cam happen to be neighbours of mine I am rightly proud of the fact that their story has been featured on the Digital Nomad blog.

Cardboard Laptop Stand

Hello Everyone

Here is something very cool and inexpensive too.

Get your laptop off the table and stop hunching over to see the screen with this cardboard laptop stand. It’s small, light, free & green and it will help you cut down on the trips to the chiropractor. Did I mention it’s super easy to make? I originally found this idea at Thingiverse.com, where Erik Skiff whipped up a pretty cool acrylic stand. I didn’t have any acrylic and more importantly I didn’t have a lazer cutter make the cuts, so I did it on cardboard. I modified the design a little so the pattern would fit on a regular letter sized sheet of paper. Check out our tutorial…

Just add cardboard.
