While some forms of digital working and organizing resemble their non-digital versions (e.g., professors giving remote lectures during the COVID19 crisis) several genuinely novel forms have emerged such as crowdsourcing (e.g., sourcing ideas from internal and external Internet “crowds”), open online collaboration (creating free digital goods such as Wikipedia), digital nomadism (people escaping settled 9-5 living through digital means) and digital hermitism (people withdrawing from society using digital tools).
