What’s in your geek go bag?

So, Scott Reuter (@sct_r on Twitter) and I were having a conversation the other day about go bags and he brought up the notion of a comm / social media go bag. I still don’t have a comprehensive answer to this one, though I’ll be posting the contents of my geek packing list in a comment shortly and hope that you will too. This site is my favorite so far. Please leave your list or your favorite link in the comments here.

Everyday Carry, or EDC, generally refers to small items or gadgets worn, carried, or made available in pockets, holsters, or bags on a daily basis to manage common tasks or for use in unexpected situations or emergencies. In a broader sense, it is a lifestyle, discipline, or philosophy of preparedness.
