Are you one of us? Read on. You might be.
Digitally-enabled people, on the move, creating a global village. Technomadic is a word we use to describe the way we are beginning to think and behave as a species. Nearly two billion people are already living a lifestyle affected by the internet.
Some are traveling first class in fancy suits to their next board meeting, trying hard to pull themselves away from their constantly-bombarded smartphone. Some have fully equipped RV’s, and bounce around from place to place at leisure, while maintaining an optimal work schedule online. Some keep it simple with a thumb, a backpack, and a laptop.
Others of us are more stationary technomads, living in suburbia with a lightening-fast fiber optic internet connection. Some are still dialing up at internet cafes, or connecting via packet radio from a faraway island. No matter how you get here, connecting via the internet puts you in touch with your human family. Your social circle is no longer limited to your family, co-workers, and neighbors. The internet allows us to become more aware of the breath in others on the opposite side of the world, in cultures completely foreign to us.

As best we can tell the word “technomad” originated in the 1980s with Steven K. Roberts who set off on a 10,000-mile journey across the U.S. with a wired and solar-powered recumbent bicycle.
Since that time, humanity has become freer to continue fostering relationships and working on projects without the requirement of geographical proximity.
As the word and the lifestyle have gained recognition, several interchangeable terms have surfaced and stayed, such as digitally-enabled nomad, neo nomad, and location independent professional.
Our vision is to propagate useful positivity and action steps to catalyze meaningful change. We want to inspire you to chase your dreams.
