Feels like Uber is getting a lot of media coverage these days, for better or worse. The title of this New York Times article is "Uber's Model Could Change Your Work" (Click the pic above to see it). I share this not because I agree with the author here, but for the dialogue that it stimulates. Warning-the tone is unnecessarily negative and conveys one emotion above all others, fear. Disrupting the status quo in an evolutionary or revolutionary way is how innovation happens. The #futureofwork is coming no matter what we do, so I'm not sure what this article expects people to do with their information other than to be cranky. We can influence whether it is for the better or worse. Having a tech company's model re-draw the boundaries is not necessarily a bad thing, it's different. The question for us individually is whether we are willing to adapt ourselves into the talent of the future and bring about positive outcomes. Work is changing and has always changed so there is no use fighting it. Leverage it.
