New Years Challenge

This sounds like my sort of challenge:

I have a feeling, somewhere deep in my urinary tract, that 2010 will be the year that I can finally live digitally. By this I mean that I can get through life without buying a physical piece of media. Be that DVD, Blu-ray, CD, Book, Magazine or any other thing that has a physical existence.

Instead I shall be surviving on a diet of purely digital media – downloads of music, films and books.

A Year of Living Digitally (Random Acts of Reality – http://randomreality.blogware.com/blog/_archives/2009/12/31/4417117.html)

I’m very much in to my gadgets.  I have a smart phone, an MP3 player and an eBook reader.  Should be pretty easy (… famous last words for New Year’s Resolutions)

To be honest, I do this quite a bit already.  I haven’t bought any new paper books since I got my eBook reader, and I’ve not bought any new CDs for a while, only the odd MP3 single.  I’ll just have to see how the rest goes.  Here’s hoping it won’t go the way of my past New Year’s resolutions.

About The WalkingPlasterDispenser

So who is the Walking Plaster Dispenser? Well, I'm a volunteer First Aider, working with a well-known First Aid charity to help out random people I've never met before (or, more usually, when) they hurt themselves. This typically involves walking briskly (never run...) around after people who are silly enough to do sports or some other suitably daft activity in their free time. In my spare time, I am a graduate engineer, working my way through a graduate scheme with a big engineering company.
