  • Technomadism - Becoming a Technology Enabled Nomad

    by Cherie Ve Ard and Chris Dunphy

    Why wait until retirement to explore the world? Technology is making it ever easier to work remotely, so why limit yourself to roving between local coffee shops when you can embrace a life of full time travel and a location independent career? Many are now exploring a technomadic lifestyle, and many more are looking for inspiration and advice to help them take the leap, cut the cord, and leave the conventional definitions of fixed-place home and work behind. Core conversation hosts Chris Dunphy & Cherie Ve Ard of Technomadia.com have been living and working technomadically without a permanent home base for nearly five years now, and they will share their stories, practical advice, and insights about this lifestyle. Topics covered may include selecting the right arsenal of technology to work successfully on the road, creating a mobile friendly career, selecting your ideal travel modality (wheels, sails, backpacks, or...), and logistical issues such as domicile, voting, vehicle registration, and more. Come learn how to make the leap to a life embracing wanderlust, or if you are already nomadic come and share your story and connect with other nomads. This session will be followed later in the day by an informal Nomadic Meetup.
