I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a gear weenie, but I’m in good company – most IT workers share my enthusiasm. Friends in real life are cringing at the thought of the “Adam Paparazzi” in their face. Similarly friends on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, and RunKeeper are rolling their eyes in agreement as they read this and see another status update roll by.
As a self proclaimed technology enthusiast; most of my activities are GPS tracked (along with my vitals), and a camera is close at hand. I enjoy sharing my experiences – most of my childhood friends and family live in Eastern Canada (2,500km away), so technology is the great connector. The way I see it; while having a camera on (or in your face) can be annoying at the time, eventually this media will become invaluable to your family, friends, and yourself as your memory fades.
My latest piece of gear is a camera that mounts on a helmet / bike and a YouTube Channel.
