Digital nomad told he's not a criminal for blogging, released without charge

Recommended Posts

Digital Nomad....is that the same as Digital Pikey?

Digital Nomads are indeed a Digital Pikey or Digicoys.

The Title of the thread should really be changed.

For the benefit of the two of you that apparently enjoy that phrase so much? I don't think so.

the hatred of the retirement set for people who manage to make their living on their own terms never ceases to astonish me.

call me a pikey, digital nomad, whatever.

the fact remains that i have not set foot in an office or worked a 40 hour week in almost 10 years and i have no intention of doing so.

if it bothers you that i can work in bankgkok, chaing mai, koh phangan or vancouver as the urge takes me, well im sorry about that.

None of that really bothers me at all.

However, if one is running around doing stuff illegally and flapping his/her gums about it, kind of like rubbing it everyone's face then that does bother me & . I'm not suggesting that YOU are doing that, I'm talking about others.

else wise......live and let live. ;)

Good luck to you mr hoohaa.

Couple of things ... that was written 5 months ago ... facepalm.gif

I did like his opening line, second paragraph ...

Me personally, I am a loner. There is nobodies company I enjoy more then my own. I know that sounds sad and depressing but it’s the truth. I prefer to live alone, travel alone and work alone.

It's an easy assumption to make that many Digital Nomads are of that ilk.

jspill ... echoes for you ... rolleyes.gif

.

Could be me.. i love my own company always been that way always will be. But think this is true for many people moving here. You do leave a lot back home.. so ties with back home are not that important for those of us that live here.

I've actually met Rob ... he is a big bloke, as in Gym wise.

Quite affable.

Don't get into a drinking competition though ... as a few friends (Rob, no names now ... whistling.gif ) lived to muse their headaches over the following day ... burp.gif

Just quietly ... so did Rob !

I didn't hear anyone rattle your chain. Since you're here, what's your point? Edited by neverdie

Sure I can go out to have fun, though I am quite ok being alone. As for drinking, that does not happen often.

And yes I had a major hangover that day.

If that was my blog it'd be much better, and older than 7 months. It's ok though, the Vietnam articles are good.

The only illegal part is the visa, though heard it more then once mention that Thai immigration does not care about it (even had them tell me they don't consider it working in Thailand though we all know how things can change or how they can say things that don't hold up). Though I would not be so stupid as to rub their face into it.

That's OK ... when I, like you, get to the ripe old age of 72, I hope that 'i have not set foot in an office or worked a 40 hour week in almost 10 years'

But, for me ... that's decades away yet.

Someone ring that god Damn Bell ...

That's better ... glitter_xmas_bells.gif

Why do you people with no employable skills seem almost proud of the fact as though writing drivel on the internet is some amazing feat?

Why do you assume those who look at you with contempt are in the 'retirement' set?

Are you that jealous of those of us who have been gainfully employed, not to mention well financially rewarded, in Thailand in a traditional sense you have to resort to fantasy stereotypes? I bet you'd love to set foot in my office and have an ogle of some of the babes who work in there...

Ohh you tend to overlook those 'retired' and 'old' cracks after a while.

The amount of time that guys like myself, MRTOAD, ATF, Soutpeel and a few others are called old and retired cannot be counted. What these people overlook is that most of us are nowhere near retirement age.

What is old anyway?

To a digital pikey, anyone that wasn't born after 1985 is ancient anyway....lol.

who says i write?

as for no employable skills, i did work for microsoft for 12 years in thailand before i chucked it. I was well compensated thank you.

"have been gainfully employed"? so would i be correct in numbering you amongst the retired?

it would seem i am not the only prone to assumption.

People seem to have a strange idea about digital nomads, sure there are those that barely make a living but quite a big group that makes nice money. There are so many things you can do without having a physical office or workplace. Its just unimaginative people who think otherwise, when they started outsourcing things to cheaper countries this was the next logical step.

There are quite a few companies too now that let employees work at home. Many digital nomads are just self employed professionals. You don't have to be young to be one.
