Gig economy

I heard about this on NPR one afternoon awhile ago. The idea is, our American society is shifting from having single-job careers (working a 9-to-5), to a workforce of freelancers who have several different jobs, maybe in several different career paths (at the same time). Interesting. And I actually know quite a few people in this boat. I don't think I would do very well with this though. I mean, I'm sure I would do "whatever," but I kind of like things a little more cut and dried. But I can see it happening. Anyway, HERE is the article in The Daily Beast by the lady I heard on the radio (Tina Brown).
