The Urban Metrosexual Gets A Tech Upgrade
Dominic Basulto looks into the emergence of the terms digital equivalent: the datasexual.
Dominic Basulto gives the term ‘metrosexual’ a tech upgrade in his post “Meet the Urban Datasexual,” in which he parallels the metrosexual to those who collect large amounts of personal data. The “datasexual” loves technology and the digital world. Instead of focusing on their clothes and their style, they enjoy collecting, recording and analyzing personal data, and are fond of infographics, data visualization, and the quantified self movement.
