Writing in the Daily Beast, Andrew Sullivan collects some interesting ideas about work and jobs. The experts cited seem to agree that it’s time for people to make their own jobs again. This idea sounds great, but I don’t think it’s realistic (even when it’s pushed by Seth Godin in Linchpin).
Can enough people make their own jobs to make a difference? I don’t know. But thinkers who present this model do not give any kind of model of what such a society would look like or how it would work. I’d like to see a blueprint before I buy in.
A big thank you to Bill Savage for sending me Sullivan’s interesting post.
