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.

I had a feeling the digerati would enjoy my latest novel. Its themes of digital technology seemed likely to resonate with those in the tech world.
