#Rethink ––> Revolution

Here in its infancy, I'm beta testing Officelessness on the people I always turn to – one of which being my colleague and frequent collaborator Ben Spear, who suggested I watch this talk (see below) he attended in early 2012 with Sara Horowitz, founder of Freelancers Union. As a both community and viable way of working, the concept of "freelance" has made epic strides since even just a few years ago. We have access to healthcare (Thanks, Obama) – which gives us one less reason to stay tethered to a corporation; and an ever-increasing number of progress-enabling technologies like Squarespace, MOO and Wave that empower people to create professional consumer-facing personae to grow their own businesses. Hats off to Ms. Horowitz for pioneering with legislation designed to promote equality for independent workers to thrive in the world today.
