While most people were commuting to the office, a small group of remote workers traveled the world as digital nomads. Some predict there’ll be a billion of them by 2035. What would that mean for the future of work, life, culture, society, and business?
It might be surprising, but the idea of location independence is nothing new. As far back as the 1960s, sci-fi writer Arthur C. Clarke said people would be able to “work from Bali, just as well as from London” by the 2010s. Lauren Razavi was one of the early adopters who proved him right, building a career on the road. Today, she’s one of the digital nomad movement’s leading voices and activists.
In her debut book, Razavi delves into the origins of digital nomads and the history of work from anywhere. She introduces us to the people, values, and ideas shaping a borderless world, from visionary designers and self-help gurus to crypto-anarchists and climate refugees.
Global Natives is a vivid, thoughtful exploration of how the internet has changed the human relationship with place. If you’re curious about digital nomads and borderless living beyond the hype, this is the book for you.
