There’s a lot of people out there that have interesting ideas about what minimalism is and is not. Becker does a nice job of explaining in my opinion. So click on the above link and check him out.
Minimalism is subjective. I’ve been listening to podcasts and visiting websites trying to see how everyone’s ideas on the subject compare to mine.
There’s a lot of patting-self-on-back. Some of it comes off as a bit pretentious. I really don’t think that any of these folks are trying to come off that way so try not to pay that any mind. They’re proud of what they’ve accomplished and that’s a good thing I think. Although I do think It’s kind of funny that they call themselves minimalists but a half hour long podcast has intro music, sponsor/ad, and then a few minutes of rambling before they get in to anything viable.
