From the Centre For Future Studies comes this wonderful definition.
Social shift analysis
For example: ‘Transumers’
- They are consumers driven by experiences. They increasingly live a transient lifestyle, freeing themselves from the hassles of permanent ownership and possessions. The fixed is replaced by an obsession with the ‘here and now’, an ever-shorter satisfaction span and a lust to collect as many experiences and stories as possible.
