10 Companies Radically Changing the Way We Work, from Business Insider, is interesting on several levels. First off, it's a nice list of innovative companies.
But what really hit was 4 of the 10 companies listed fall into the freelance, independent work, mobile work arena. These are:
Fancy Hands, which provides online access to hireable assistants who will do a wide range of small tasks for relatively small amounts of money. One of a number of online micro-job sites, you can hire folks to do everything from walking your dog to doing your shopping.
oDesk, which is one of the leading online job marketplaces.
LiquidSpace, which allows users to quickly, easily and affordable book office space, conference rooms and meeting spaces on an as needed basis.
So it's pretty clear the author of this article considers independent and mobile work to be the future of work. We agree.
