In the comments in the previous post, Melinda (thank you very much, Melinda!) puts a link to an Atlantic article “The Freelance Surge Is the Industrial Revolution of Our Time” which is right in the core of what we are talking about here at EOW, enough so that I felt it should be in its own post. (Are we “EOWers”? Can we have T-shirts? Dental?) It looks like the piece is the beginning of a series that the Atlantic intends to do on how work is changing, again, something that dovetails with what we are doing here. Even just reading it gave me ideas on whole new things that will develop in the economy. I don’t doubt that many “freelancers” (an oddly romantic military term!) want many of the things that people had in a more institutional, industrial era, but we will want them in ways that fit how we work now, rather than forcing people to hew to the older standards. Just as an enormous untapped set of markets alone…..this has tremendous possibilities!
