What's in your bag? is a recurring feature where we ask people to tell us a bit more about their everyday gadgets by opening their bags and hearts to us. Show us your bag in this forum post. This week, we're featuring the esteemed Dante D'Orazio.

What you’re looking at here is what I carry in my bag everyday. This is what I take with me from my apartment to my desk at the Verge’s New York City office; this is the bare minimum that I carry, and is therefore what I hold most near and dear. When I head off to cover a press briefing, event, or convention, my bag swells quite a bit, but I’d say 95 percent of the time I carry everything you see here — even if I’m going on a weekend trip or a vacation. Back in my school days I favored carrying everything I had in a big backpack (why sacrifice computing power for a couple of pounds off my back?) — including that damned 1000+ page AP Euro textbook my teacher mandated his pupils to haul to class everyday. Needless to say, that’s all changed, and I now put a premium on weight.
