      Employment at a company is itself a bundle of various services and infrastructure, and micro-entrepreneurs piece these together on their own.

      Wow-wee. So many great resources, and/or startups that were mentioned in this article, that I am thrilled to check out. We are clearly entering an entirely different age of work, and Li Jin does a wonderful job depicting all of these changes.

      The internet is empowering an entirely new age of work away from our previous way of industrialization era life-long jobs.

      However, we need a better way to educate individuals for the realities of the work that is available upon graduation from K-12, as well as college. As clearly we are behind the ball in this regard.

      Flexible learning, and continually iterating on your share of skills is essential to dare I say "survive" in the 21st century workforce.
