Technological Bedouins

Technological nomads, technological Bedouins, or New Bedouins are all phrases for the same thing: Those who, thanks to the development of the sensor web, and VR systems such as both are, are able to run businesses, and sustained income, entirely from mobile locations. Cyber cafes, Internet enabled cars, park benches, shops and pubs. No offices, no difference in productivity being ?at home? or on the move. Truly a technological nomad.
