The TW Reads are collections of links to articles from the web, curated by Third Wave. Each collection is focussed on one topic.

Learning from independent workers

Bryan Boyer has written a fantastic series of essays about the future or work. He looks at trends and motivations among independent workers today to provide a framework for designing services and policies for the work of tomorrow:

  1. Bye bye, Busytown
    Understanding independent work
  2. The Leading Edge
    Independents are an early warning system for the economy
  3. Market realities and networked dreams
    Independent work between the cracks of the old economy
  4. Fringe benefits
    Independent work beyond the individual

On the “second machine age”
