Many years ago, my best friend and I were so convinced that life was increasingly becoming about 'stuff and things' that we registered the internet domain name www.stuffandthings.com. Like many of my possessions - DVD boxsets I will never watch, books awaiting that elusive relaxing beach holiday, enough Lego to start a shop - this is now gathering dust. As Charlie Brooker has said, we live in a stuff-a-lanche, and I want less.

Yet even in these austere times, many of us continue to accumulate goods, defining ourselves to varying extents by what we own. We use things to signal who we want to be and where we want to belong. They become our legacy. Our journalist Dr Christian Jarrett considers this lifelong relationship with objects.

If you're a fan of shiny tech things, have you tried out The Psychologist on tablet, smartphone and Kindle yet? It's available to Society members by logging in via www.tinyurl.com/yourpsych. It's early days and development of our online presence remains in the pipeline, but good things come to those who wait!

Managing editor
