Re: New Escapologist and ERE

Would you still say you own about 20 things? I reread your first article and really enjoyed the minimalism link you posted. I'm on that journey myself and hope to get there soon. http://theschooloflife.typepad.com/the_school_of_life/2010/05/timothy-eyre-and-robert-wringham-on-minimalism.html Thank ...

<t>@Maus - thanks for the support. Glowing praise!<br/> @rcamp - The eBook thing is a fair question. We've resisted an eBook version for much the same reason Jacob did. It also goes slightly against some of the ethics we promote in the magazine including a distrust of portable gimcracks.<br/> It's a...

<t>I'd have to move. I couldn't live with a commute like that. But until then, my thoughts are:<br/> 1. Carpool with your colleague. Play the 'better for the environment' card, perhaps also explaining that you struggle to afford your own car. Also, be good company when you're in his/her car: be a so...
