NOMADLIST

In the 1960s, futurists were predicting that we would be able to take our work operations on the go, being able to work as easily from London as we would from Bali. As long as you have internet and your trusty devices, wherever you decide to settle in can become your office. As a way to guide these wanderlust-driven individuals, Nomad List was born: A community-based platform for rating cities around the world based on standards like cost of living, friendliness to foreigners, weather, and Internet speed. Thousands of nomads leave their impressions for potential future residents, making it easier than ever to decide your next remote office.

ROOM MATE HOTELS: BEMATE

The rise of Airbnb and other local apartment rental options has shifted the way we think about our travel accommodations. However, a key component that seems to be missing when we enter these hyper-local places to stay, is the range of amenities that hotels offer that local apartments don’t: room service, daily cleaning, concierge services, you name it. When you decide to take up an apartment, it’s your duty to keep it in the state you received it, and when you’re an urban nomad, you don’t really have time for chores. BeMate matches guests, apartments and hotels to provide the best of both worlds: a cozy, local, homey environment with the five-star services of hotels, filling the missing gap in 21st-century accommodation. In addition, BeMate offers free citywide Wi-Fi connectivity for its guests using WiMate technology, which has earned them the Worldwide Hospitality Awards, rounding out each guest’s experience.

Sign: Slack in The Reign of the Urban Nomads

SLACK

Slack has made waves in the corporate sphere in recent years as a revolutionary tool for workplace communication and organization. The platform is centered around ‘channels’, which are specific chatroom-like interfaces which allow for quick sharing of important information between employees, while archiving all that information for later searching. The main draw for Slack is that it increases productivity by not having to ask people what they said or what the latest update is– you can simply search for it in the related channel, decreasing our time lost finding things out and enabling us to keep up with work wherever we are.

Sign: Zoom in The Reign of the Urban Nomads

ZOOM

Video-calling is nothing new. However, the features and innovations that Zoom has put on the table have made countless meetings, school lessons and even parties happen in an age of confinement and social distance. The ways in which we are forced to reimagine gatherings have placed Zoom at the center of most digital conversations, amid virtual backgrounds and shared screens. Whether or not we’re on the go, Zoom frees us from the conference room letting us take meetings and conversations wherever we may be, at any time.
