Technology has made it possible for many of us to do our jobs from anywhere that has an internet connection. A few years back I got it into my head that it would be incredibly cool if I could do my job while living on the road full time.
I am literally obsessed with the thought of ways I could make it happen.
How cool would it be to work from a coffee shop in New Orleans one week and the next week from a tent on the beach on North Padre Island?
This last week, I got a chance to have a peek at what it might be like to be surrounded in all the things I want to see and still get all my work done.
That picture you see above this post (click it so you can see the full image) was taken while I was exploring New Orleans and taking notes on my phone for this post. At the same time I was flipping back and forth to the V7N App so I could check on the forum.
Seriously, how cool is that?
It was an opportunity to test out my theories and learn what would and wouldn’t work.
The most important thing I learned is that you always need a backup plan because you can’t always count on WIFI to be dependable. Yes, you can resort to your smart phone or tablet for a lot of things but I sure wouldn’t want to blog or run a forum full time from either one of them using 4G services. On the flip side of that the cool thing about being mobile is you can always move to where the WIFI is more dependable.
In the coming months I need to learn more about cloud computing.
There is so much to learn and see. So little time….
