I’m fortunate enough that I run a business that can be managed from anywhere. The laptop lifestyle is a modern invention that depends upon the internet. Without it, there would be no digital nomads.
Thanks to progress in technology we have an abundance of advances across the disciplines; medical science, finance and education, to name a few. There’s also brand new products and services that are both appealing, addictive yet potentially corrosive. Social media is one such example.
Not for the first time in history it’s possible for the common man to amass a following of the magnitude necessary to influence others on a large scale (preacher men were pretty big back in the day). These folks are able to shape attitudes, ideas and trends globally. Anyone with access to a smartphone and WiFi connection can become a self made star.
With that comes responsibility.
