New skills

I wonder what new skills people will develop, if the economy shifts decisively to on-line. There are a lot of smart and capable people out there in the service economy who, at least for now, find themselves out of work.

Once upon a time, the Web created new opportunities for employment. Similarly, the on-line economy will open up new sectors of useful and rewarding work that we’re very likely not even thinking of yet.

Maybe it’s time we did.
