21 Lbs of Technology: Behind The Bali Workflow Project

Scroll down ↓

By the time you read this, I’ll be in a plane to Hong Kong…

The great Bali Renegade Workflow Project has officially launched. For the better part of the summer, I’ll be operating out of Bali, working part of the time, exploring part of the time and enjoying my family and the pace of life all of the time.

In my post last week, I shared some the ways I’ll be experimenting with my content creation pipeline and workflow in order to get the most out of my time on the other side of the world. But, today, I wanted to spend a few minutes sharing with you all 21 pounds of technology that’ll be coming along on the adventure with me. Normally, I’d never travel this heavy, but since we’ll be more “living” in Bali for a month or two, rather than “visiting” for a week or two, it made sense to bring what I needed.

Also, because this is such a lush, rich part of the world, I wanted to make sure I was able to capture it with a level of technology that really did it justice. Which is kind of funny, because the other “capture” technology I’ll be leaning on is a few old moleskine journals, aka, the anti-technology.

This Friday will start the official Summer Guest-posting Festival, too, so stay tuned for some amazing insights, thoughts and stories from folks who are doing powerful things with their lives…

  2. Traveling like a true blogger: A gadgets to clothes ratio of 6:1 !!

    Good luck Jonathan – have a great flight 🙂 Can’t wait for updates.

    Holy crap you got a lot of stuff! You better be taking some amazing footage 🙂

    A few thoughts:
    Traveling with tripods can be a HUGE pain, but if you make sure to use them, they’re totally worth it.

    Powershots are amazing. Even just using that with the mini tripod you have your boom mic on is awesome for the times where you’re just walking somewhere and wan to snap a few pictures w/out grabbing your whole camera setup.

    Excited for you Jonathan. Can’t wait to see the results!

    I just wanted to drop in and say hi! I just finished Career Renegade and I love it. Now I’m going to read it again with a notepad I’m currently in the “R&D” phase of sorting out the various strategies to liberation through internet entrepreneurship. I had never heard of you but I was at the book store, saw your book, perused for a bit and thought ‘lets see what his take is’. Man I’m glad I did! Really great information and inspiration!

    Take care and have a great experience in Bali!

    hahaha, Jonathan, that’s awesome. And I thought I travel heavy with iPod, SLR, little camera, laptop and external hard drive 😀

    But I can’t wait to hear from you blogging from a hammock somewhere on a relaxing terrace in Bali!
    Have a safe trip and enjoy the time with your family!

    Hey Jonathan! I’ll be out in Bali visiting with my Dad…he lives there and has an annoying habit of calling me in rainy London while he’s basking in the sunshine! Maybe I’ll spot you out there!

  8. Excited to see how you manage it. I too need to buy a smaller camera and a small tripod while travelling through Eastern Europe and make it work.

    Always a fun challenge when wireless is dodgey and infrequent, it certainly makes you appreciate making use of every opportunity when you can.

    Enjoy
