Digerati is a noun that refers to people with expertise or personal involvement with information technology.
Our word of the day is a portmenteau, meaning a combination of two words that forms another word. Digerati combines digital — meaning related to computer technology — with literati — meaning a group of people involved in the literary world — and gives us a word that means ‘people involved with the world of digital technology. The word emerged during the 1990s.
