Answering the question ‘What is the Future of Work’ solves the wrong problem really well, for a number of reasons.
1] There are many possible futures – it is not yet clear what the future is, so we should be asking what is …
A Future of Work?
2) What the hell is ‘work’ – why do we care about it
… if you ask most people if all their creature comforts were taken care of – would they continue to do what they are doing …. they will answer ’no’ – the question then is what is …
The/A Future of Income?
3) and finally … the future is already here, so let’s call it
The Present of Work
…. and by the ‘Present of Work’ – life, labour, time to do your work is not a gift, not a present – I should be paid fairly and equitably for my contribution
BTW – just spotted that you sent me the book – very kind – no idea how I missed that … will be fun to do the thing – will ping you n a week or so to get something set up.
