Technogypsie

Technogypsie (also Techno-Gypsie or Techno Gypsy) is a term for a modern day nomadic person who balances the arts and sciences in their lifestyle. According to Technogypsie artist Leaf McGowan, one of the Chief Executive Officers (CEO's) of Technogypsie.com, the term was created by Anthropologist Thomas Baurley in the early 1980s during his ethnographic studies of modern day nomadic peoples, especially those traveling with a "technology" job and "artistic" skill. Many of his case studies were attendees of the International Rainbow Gatherings, Burning Man festivals or sub-cultural events.
