Beyond those whose focus is on a given geographical area, is the the complementary set of Ambassadors whose interest and expertise lies in technologies, cultures and communities that are non-geographical.
The technomads are people for whom the global availability of a strong technological infrastructure is a given, and who work and live leveraging it, maximizing its benefit to themselves and their extended communities, without being tied to a specific country.
