Help Coin a New Word

I’ve been thinking for a few days that there’s a gap in the language that needs to be filled, and as always, I turn to the hive mind of the internet to help out.

In fact, it’s the internet that’s created the need for this word. It’s made possible a new kind of career: a person who has a purely web-based job, like freelance writing, programming or web design, who has no fixed address and who constantly travels because they can do their job from anywhere, and because they can. I know several people who fit this description.

What’s a good word for this? I thought of “web nomad,” which is descriptive but isn’t catchy. Let’s see if you can do better.
