Help Coin a New Word

Help Coin a New Word June 8, 2013

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.

"So, following on from my exchange below with Quath, do you remember any particular Biblical ..."

"I think the idea is that 'most people' would not in fact have been receptive ..."

The Fountainhead: The Sexy Lamp
"So, after she's written a press release saying 'If you're not the kind of person ..."

The Fountainhead: The Sexy Lamp
"So, when does this all-powerful deity get serious aboot Satan. Hitler, a Catholic, is in ..."
