What it means to be Electrate.
Electracy is the neologistic term created to label the level of adaptiveness to new technology. To be electrate is to technology, as to be literate is to language. The newly developed term combines the words electric and literate to create a word that enables us to have conversations that easily distinguish between tech-savvy people and those that are not. To be able to operate computers and other technology in today’s age is becoming important enough to sub-categorize the people who are good with it as “Electrate.” In today’s society, much of the entertainment is digitally produced which calls for thousands of electrate individuals.
