“Digital Nomad” has become the catchphrase that describes a new lifestyle in which people have been freed from constraints of time and location, thanks to the progress of mobile intelligent devices and high speed communication networks. A book with this title was published in 1997 by the author and David Manners of the United Kingdome-based Electronics Weekly [1]. The first version was written in English; Japanese and Chinese versions the following year. Figure 1 shows photographs of the books and the authors.
We have observed gradual changes in lifestyle from the traditional way to the nomadic way, notably in the past decade. It was quite common, by the turn of the 21st century, for a large number of people to commute to their workplaces every morning, for example offices in the centers of large cities, at 9 or 10a.m., either in cars or in trains every morning, and to leave in the evening at 5 or 6p.m. The regular movement of people, back and forth, creates the phenomena of heavy traffic for cars and the “rush hour” of trains.
In the time frame of the mid-1990s, when the book was published, cell-phones were just about to take off, but their capabilities were limited to talking. The situation is quite different today with the emergence of personal and intelligent mobile devices such as mobile PCs, tablet PCs, and smart-phones; most of us are enjoying the nomadic lifestyle in one way or another.
