The time of the fixed address has come to an end. For most humans, the future will be one of constant, itinerant movement, seeking jobs, seeking safe places, seeking adventure.

A popular book will come out in the next few years that will make the case that the nature state of mankind is that of movement, and we become unstable when moored to one place for too long. This will spark a worldwide revolution, where people will quit jobs, sell homes, pull up stakes, and move. Magazines will detail the history of nomads, as well as techniques used for a life on the road.

The road is our future, and we will spend it traveling.
