Net and nomadism

Date of publication: September 1, 2000

Abstract:

This paper analyzes the links between internet technology and relationships in three ways which offer different ways of experiencing time-space relationships: 1. Netrade and client networking: wired in individual and business relationships. These new relationships underline the enjoyment factor and entail maximum interaction and versatility. 2. Worknet and flexorganization: wired in the organizational sphere. The company becomes a delimited area. Planning and experimenting with new types of relationships becomes easier. 3. Mobility and job jumping: wired as an individual. Experience goes along with the desire to explore new cognitive frontiers. Computer delocalization requires personal skill in working constructively on memory and emotional appeal.
