July has been a big month for public discussion of the gig economy. For those interested in the issue, here are three of my recent pieces:
1) Is Your Digital Boss Cheating You? (part of a collection of “5 Ways to Take Back Tech”)
2) Serfing the Web: On-Demand Workers Deserve a Place at the Table (with Trebor Scholz). If you have comments for the FTC on the gig economy, their deadline is August 4.
3) Uber and the lawlessness of ‘sharing economy’ corporates (with Siva Vaidhyanathan)
In related news: for anyone interested in the future of legal regulation of the interaction between software and work, please submit an abstract to “Unlocking the Black Box: The Promise and Limits of Algorithmic Accountability in the Professions” (due by August 23).
