The New Digerati IRL


The new digerati have brokered a new online/offline balance as they find their “first life” in the real world unexpectedly attractive: face time trumps Facebook. They do not respond to emails on the weekend, as they are hiking, traveling, or engaging in some world changing social endeavor — from running an AIDS marathon to volunteering for the Obama campaign to founding their own non-profit. They share the sensation that one’s fortune is not made in front of a screen and that “quality of life” is the prerequisite of a good life. The new digerati want to be connected but only for a reason. They build their own social networks and take advantage of the communication tools at hand — but they have matured their use of them. They scoff at those who spend their time chained to the PC, while they themselves enjoy utmost mobility.
