One of the earliest known uses of the term digital nomad originally was in 1997. It was the title of a book published by educational publishing company Wiley. It was written by Tsugio Makimoto and David Manners. It is unknown if the phrase was coined in this book or if they took a term that had already existed.
Digital nomads can use wireless Internet, smartphones, Voice over IP, and/or cloud-based applications to work remotely where they live or travel.
Digital nomads may use co-working spaces, cafes, house sitting agreements, and shared offices, such as a TEALcenter. The foundation of the digital nomad movement is remote work, allowing people to do their work at home or otherwise through the Internet.
Digital nomads tend to travel while they continue to work with clients or employers. Services such as PayPal are popular among digital nomads. Skype, Facebook, WhatsApp and Zoom are also common tools for people to use to communicate through voice, text, and video chat across long distances. YouTube has also been used by digital nomads as a means by which to earn revenue without having to have a central workplace or living space.
An important step in being a digital nomad is ensuring that all relevant documentation (such as visas and passports) is kept up to date. If you do not, it can lead to legal difficulties when traveling abroad. A solid grasp of any official languages of the countries you are visiting is also important, as a lack thereof can prevent a person from engaging with the locals.
