Tech and labor links

Some interesting items I found this morning:

-- "How the Internet is making us poor," by ex-Sciam colleague Christopher Mims at Quartz. The tech-driven disemployment he describes is unquestionably real and important, though whether being a tech person oneself is a great safeguard is debatable; being a technologically adept design person (I'm married to one) might be a better strategy.

-- "Gangs are not using the Internet to recruit new members or commit complex cybercrimes, according to a new study..."

-- Joel Kotkin on the "unstoppable rise of telecommuting." I've been doing it, on and off, for 20 years.
