Remember old times when you had to wake-up early and go to your smelly / tiny office? Work with people you hardly bear / talk to? Do tasks you cannot even remember the purpose / instructions ?
Hopefully, soon that will be the “old school work”.
If we think of the disrupting economy, we might see The Work as the next big disruption. Looks at how Airbnb changed the way people travel or how Uber the way people commute, and how Square is killing the way people use coins etc.
Tech start-ups have this amazing ability to disrupt old-fashioned industries and improve them. The next big disruption must be Work. Because it’s something central: we spent more than half of our lives at work, no matter where we are in the world, work is something we have in common.
Crowd-sourcing marketplaces have already began the disruption process. Odesk or Elance make it easy to get job and get paid online. With Tasksrabbit, you can accomplish small daily tasks for someone and get paid.
Soon, you will be able to work
- from anywhere: at home, on the beach etc.
- on anything you like: using social data, jobs will be targeted on what you like
- at any-time: the web is open 24/7
- with anybody: with people doing the same job or sharing the same passions
… and if you enjoy your daily job then it’s become a HOBBY !
