Stand up for Change

Many students carry heavy book bags to the detriment of their posture and could benefit from traveling a lot less loaded down. Also, it is simply easier to travel lightly. We have less chance of losing or damaging things! 

You don't have to be a student either to realize the benefits! How does the cloud help you to travel and work efficiently?  

Documents online in Dropbox or Google Drive

Photos in Flickr or Instagram

Books and articles on Kindle or ebooks

Music on your MP3 player or iPod. 

What can you add? How can you lighten the load for students or for yourself?
