I agree that technology can add to the mental clutter, but I don’t think it needs to. I find technology is the ultimate thing for a minimalist: it allows them unlimited growth (through the information available on the Internet) and allows them to stay connected with the rest of the world.
As a digital nomad, I look for ways to live more simply and develop location independence through utilizing the technology that’s around me. I take as few gadgets with me as possible — the less the better! 🙂
I’m not sure if minimalism is the new black, but it’s definitely a growing trend! I think it’s a natural response to having so much available to us.
