The Jobs (and the Intellectuals) of the Future Begin to Appear

  • I know someone who just quit his job with a big company to do just what you describe: Write apps. Other software developers who work for bigger companies do this on the side to make extra money, 99 cents at a time.

    Such opportunities are not just for the high-tech folks. Personalized services, like going shopping for someone, cleaning, waiting for the cable guy so the homeowner can go to work…

    The opportunities are almost endless. Government should be fostering the entrepreneurial spirit, not crushing it beneath tons of bureaucratic sludge.

    Thate there are people who are stunned that jobs can exist without a government subsidy no longer surprises me.

    But then again, I’ve seen a lot of strange intellectual contortions. I used to live in East Germany.
