Technomadics

So I just read the story of Steven K Roberts, a technogeek and a nomad. It's hard to explain his philosophy, exactly, but I must say that it is very enticing.

He has essentially combined technology with the ability to live a nomadic lifestyle. The original form of this was a bike with a solar charger and a laptop, the Winnebiko. Eventually it evolved into something much larger and more sophisticated, but inevitably, it become too large and unwieldy, making the nomadic lifestyle much more complicated.

Its something I've thought about before, but I have to admit that it would be hard for me to commit to such a thing. My ultimate goal would be to travel the world with a suitcase and a laptop. I'd just be doing whatever business I feel is appropriate, from wherever I feel comfortable.

This is something which I don't know that I'll ever do, but seeing this makes me think that it might not be that hard.
