Cruisers Forum

My first ever forum post. #72. How cool am I?

Technomads Moving from Land to Water... - Page 2 - Cruisers & Sailing Forums

I wanted to add to this thread because I'm fascinated by the sociology of the cruiser world, with its own cliques and hierarchies, loud mouths, silent majorities? - oppressed minorities? It is really fascinating. I wonder if anyone's done a dissertation on this world. An ethnography of course.

Anyway, regarding this particular thread, these Technomads are on the "adventurers but not sailors" end of the spectrum, and I am feeling some.... kinship. More on "cruiser social stratification and social networking" in a later post. Ha. You can take the girl out of school, but you can't take school out of the girl.
