Abstract

Proliferation of digital technology, especially digital-wireless and broadband technology have change the way human life: their lifestyles, their relationship, their behavior, the way they works, their socio-culture and the way they communicate or interact with others. From those facts as starting point, this project takes Urban Nomads as the main topic (the topic was inspired from the way of Gypsies life, how they live, socialize and built their own community).

This work discusses how the definition, the impact and influence of urban nomads toward their own body, personality, life, behavior, lifestyle and then grow to the bigger community outside their body (family and friends relationship) to the local society (interaction) then toward the country where this community live and at the end to the global society. It is not only interpersonal relationship among urban nomads themselves but also in term of socio-culture, economics and spatial where they move, live and interact. While discussing several cases in their relationships to these levels this papers states that urban nomads definition is a new urban society where the integration of high technology, spatially (both time and space), mobility and independent lifestyle that has become a personality.
