Review:

New digital technologies promise to enable large numbers of people to work wherever and whenever they wish and to choose between a stationary or nomadic lifestyle. In Digital Nomad, Makimoto and Manners explore the new potential for modern nomadism, beginning with the technology that is making it possible. They cite some examples of current nomads, such as the president of a major European technology company who does not have the traditional perk of the president's office. Instead, he spends his workweek traveling around Europe from one company site to the next. Digital technology has made it more economical and efficient for the company to work this way. But the authors point out that there is more to nomadism than the technical ability. They discuss how nomads tend to be difficult to track, making them difficult to tax and control. Many governments see nomads as threats and some governments are currently discouraging nomadic lifestyles that have existed for thousands of years. How will world governments react then to those who opt for a high-tech nomadic life? The authors also discuss what parts of the world may be most attractive to tomorrow's digital nomads, speculating on how future technological developments may further enhance the ability to live and work on the go. It's debatable if many people really want a life with no physical roots, but Makimoto and Manners's speculations read like a dream come true for those who'd love more variety in their work lives.

From the Publisher:

This is a highly readable book on how technology will change our working lives in the 21st Century. As companies downsize, merge, de-merge and acquire to obtain the capabilities they think they need, people will be forced to ask themselves: Am I a nomad or settler? This choice will become a mainstream lifestyle option and this book will explore this proposition. What makes this book different is the way it relates to the probable and possible - not speculative dreaming. It also focuses on microelectronics as the key enabling factor for products that will enable nomadism.
