This episode is about how
I moved all my data into the cloud. This has been an essential part
of adopting a digital nomad lifestyle but is also relevant for
anyone who wants a more minimalist, clutter-free life.
I digitised any data that could be, such as music, movies, photos,
books, and documents. Once digital, I moved all my data into cloud
storage of one kind or another. Then I got rid of all data clutter
that was part of my stuff: CDs, DVDs, photos, spare computers, etc.
Now all my data lives in the cloud.
In the episode, I explain how I implemented a zero data system, and
I outline some of the key issues to address. These include privacy
(encryption), backup, redundancy, and sync vs archive.
