Kelly Sutton (born Michael Kelly Sutton, May 4, 1987) is a software engineer, entrepreneur, and minimalist living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He is best known for starting the websites HackCollege and Cult of Less.
Cult of Less
Sutton founded the website, Cult of Less as a way to "unclutter his life." The site lists all of Sutton's possessions and past belongings. Because of the website, Sutton is a known figure among digital minimalists. With his lifestyle, Sutton claims to live out of two suitcases and two boxes. "Digital minimalists" are individuals that replace physical media (such as books, DVDs, CDs) with digital media, either through purchases or rentals through services such as Netflix, iTunes or Amazon.
Sutton began the Web site HackCollege in September, 2006. It has been called "One of the best websites for making college life easier and more enjoyable" by the USC Daily Trojan. Since its inception, site has grown to include a show. The show was briefly a part of the Revision3 network.
