Historically speaking, work was a concept that usually referred to physical labour. Building, baking, slicing and dicing were all forms of industrial labour. This form of labour was dependent on a hierarchical system where people would do what they were told. Order was established by workers following orders. However, with the introduction of the internet and liquid labour, information now flows free and constant.
Liquid labour is dependent on the free flow of information. The internet enabled information to flow free. This allowed labour to be always available and unrestrained by borders. Liquid labour is derived from the distributed network because without this continuous free flow of information, liquid labour wouldn’t exist. Information in a distributed network flows freely and is communicated in a controlled manner. Liquid labour is an inexpensive way to coordinate a network and it makes for quick decision-making.
Bottom-line is that we are no longer in one place. Due to a distributed network and liquid labour we can now work anywhere, anyplace and anytime. So, my question to you is, will industrial labour ever cease to exist?
