Vacation = Out of the Cloud

I have a habit of being connected online which at times borders on an addiction. I connect via my iPhone, desktop computer at church and laptop at home or on the road.

Not on vacation. Nicole and I are headed to Estes Park, Colorado tomorrow. From May 8 to May 19, I will not:

  • Boot up my laptop.
  • Use my iPhone in any way other than as a phone.
  • Check my email – @gmail.com or @cor.org

Goodbye Twitter, Facebook, WordPress, Google Reader, Remember the Milk, Google Docs, Spark People. For a few days, at least…

I will have a blog post pre-scheduled here for May 18 and I’ll come back online May 19.

Until then, enjoy of the top posts from the last 30 days:

Why I Use Google Docs (2 of 6)

I use Google Docs because it exists in the cloud and I get the same access to my documents at any computer connected to the internet. This is great as right now I may find myself working at Saint Luke’s Hospital, Resurrection, home or on the road. I have all my documents wherever I go in a common easily editable and sharable format.

I also use Google Docs as a document management system. I scan documents and upload them to Google Docs. I can view them online any time and do not have to keep the hard copy. I will always be able to print hard copy if I need them. What is this Google Docs of which you speak? Check out this video…

How do you manage documents – word processing or paper filing? Suggestions?
