When it came to the future of work, the prophets of the past swarmed. Karl Marx believed that it would be possible for anyone to “hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, practice livestock breeding in the evening and criticize after dinner … without ever becoming a hunter, fisherman, shepherd or critic”. In turn, […]
This week, I changed my picture on Xing. Xing is a European career-oriented social networking site for enabling a small-world network for professionals. I thought about changing the pic, because I am about to change my job. So I thought that a new pic would match to a new job.
