Here’s one for the little people, the freelancers, the intrepid, the cast aside, the let go and left behind, the consultants and the small business entrepreneurs. The world is tilting in your direction.
From Amazon to eBay, from Facebook to Twitter, from AirBnB to the Khan Academy, technology is tuning into the frequency of the small scale and the individual. These tools, these opportunities are tough for The Man to engage with and leverage – but the individual, the citizen, the friend, the compadre, for them these tools are given from Heaven above to use and own.
A recent theme is to reference economies of unscale – here, and here.
The fragmentation and globalization of work is putting each of us under pressure – more and more of us will be freelancers, whether we like it or not. Knowing that the tools are on our side – well, sweet.
