I'm a "Bobo"

...Yes, I'm a "bobo" --"bourgeois bohemian."

"Bobo" is a new term that I recently learned after reading Jin Wang's Brand New China: Advertising, Media and Commercial Culture. According to Wang (2008) " 'these are highly educated folk who have one foot in the bohemian world of creativity and another foot in the bourgeois realm of ambition and worldly success. The members of the new information age elite are bourgeois bohemians.' " ...So apparently if you are enjoying the "new information age" or Web 2.0 media, you are also a Bobo. ;)
