Would consultants or other professionals who are constantly traveling be considered digital nomads? This is my answer to the question on Quora.
I think the main definition of digital nomads is being people who make their nomadic lives work through digital means.
Those techniques are being picked up more and more by people who are not really nomadic, but merely in transit, or location independent in general.
I live in a particular place, but I partake of a wider world of opportunity through digital means, and envisioning myself as independent of my surroundings.
We all have the potential to be digital nomadlike, or use digital nomad strategies to make our lives more seamless.
