Description
"Digital nomads are knowledge workers who actively seek a lifestyle of freedom, using technology to perform their work remotely, travelling far and wide, and moving as often as they like. They have left their local coffee shops behind and now proudly post their "office of the day" photos from exotic locales, but what do their lives really look like? This book takes readers into an expatriate digital nomad community in Bali, Indonesia and presents new manifestations of classic questions about community, creativity, and the role of place in the modern human ecosystem. It explains why digital nomads leave their creative class cities behind, arguing that creative class workers, though successful, often feel that their "world class cities" and desirable jobs are anything but paradise. This book follows nomads' work transitions into freelancing, entrepreneurship, and remote jobs. Then, it explains how digital nomads create a fluid but intimate place-based community abroad in the company of like-minded others. It shows why and how individuals blend in-person and online activity in their pursuit of community and freedom. This book provides insights into individuals' efforts to live lives and create work identities that balance freedom, community, and creative fulfilment in the digital age, and it provides insights into a larger cultural discourse about the future of cities, work, and community"--
