What’s Your Daily Digital Diet?

Each day we seem to add yet another device, application or website to our menu of favourite (or most useful) digital items. It’s as if we consume them in our hunger for the next-new thing. But our digital diet changes over time – sometimes on a daily basis, with one new application supplanting another. Think Foursquare during a conference. Then think Twitter back at the office.

John Johnston compiled a list of digital devices that he uses on a daily basis. A number of people have shared their digital diet in the comments. But because it is such an interesting idea, I thought I’d publish my own list and then track it over time using a new Digital Diet category. So from time to time I can track how my daily digital diet changes. It may give me a sense of the trends as they occur. Time will tell.

Here’s what I use daily:

Lenovo T60 Notebook Desktop PC
BlackBerry Pearl Canon 450D Camera
Xenyx 502 Mixer Logitech webcam
Dell Mini Netbook with inbuilt 3G Gmail
Google Apps (mostly docs) Saasu
iTunes Skype
Adobe Connect Facebook
TweetDeck PeopleBrowsr
Outlook Live Writer
Microsoft Office Google Chrome
Twitter TwitterBerry
WordPress Adobe Photoshop
Adobe Acrobat Adobe Dreamweaver
MyPhpAdmin YouTube
Feedly Flickr
Canon MP560 Printer TiVo
JVC video camera Union XR bike computer

There are other things that I use, though not EVERY day. What about you?

  1. Daily? Flickr, twitter, netbook, mobile, digital camera, google chrome, msn, skype, (workdays outlook and ie), wordpress, gmail, facebook, google reader, moodle, yahoo widgets – weather…

  2. Seeing it in writing like that is pretty amazing, we take so much for granted – daily for me Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, wordpress, Egnyte, RingCentral, CoTweet, Custom built Laptop, google chrome, google alerts, brand titan…

  3. That’s quite a list you’ve got going there 🙂 It also makes me realise I did miss a few, but perhaps because I don’t use them every single day. I’m thinking of Flickr, Photoshop and such like. I also failed to mention WordPress!
    Good idea to track it over time. I too will probably update my list in 6 months or a year to see how it has changed.
