A Computer Science Professor’s Backpack

Every morning I read through my favourite technology blogs and one series of blog posts that I confess to enjoying are the Featured Bag posts on Lifehacker. These are basically a series of posts where different people from different jobs/walks of life describe the kind of bag they use and what they keep inside it. I find this interesting because I’m always looking for ways to ensure that what I carry to and from work, to research meetings, and to conferences is lightweight and maximizes functionality. A collection of user submitted bags/backpacks can be found on the Lifehacker Go Bag Show and Tell (hosted on Flickr).

So with that said here is my backpack:

My BackpackMy current bag is a T-Tech by Tumi Prince Computer Backpack. To give my laptop, tablet and phone extra protection I also use Dodocase Durables waxed canvas sleeves.

In the main compartment of the backpack I keep:

In the front pockets I keep:

  • Apple earbuds+mic
  • work keys (with usb flash drive attached)
  • iPhone 5
  • pen
  • Adonit Jot Script bluetooth stylus
  • business cards
  • reading glasses

So that’s it — that’s what’s in my backpack :).
