    1. Economy, Society, and Public Policy

      David Brancaccio and the kind folks at Marketplace are doing a public virtual bookclub with this book as their text for twelve weeks through the Spring of 2020.

      Given the complexity of the subject and the public nature, I might suggest that they consider using the opensource and free Hypothes.is platform as an academic discussion tool for allowing everyone to highlight, annotate, and respond to the text and conversations.

      I suspect the Hypothesis team would be happy to do a quick run through of their platform as well as potentially creating a private group if they preferred.

    1. “Crowdsourcing is a broken labor model,” said Clouse, whose fund led the Series A round. “You can’t build an enterprise-grade business on top of a crowdsourced marketplace, where both the employers and the workers waste most of their time navigating the chaos. Cloud labor is the future of work, but delivering on that requires a new approach and a new type of workforce — with CloudFactory leading the way.” While crowdsourcing marketplaces like Amazon’s Mechanical Turk can work for handling a moderate number of tasks, fast-growing companies relying on these services quickly start hitting a ceiling. Unlike crowdsourcing solutions, CloudFactory lets companies scale rapidly without losing control of quality or costs. CloudFactory replaces the inefficient marketplace model of crowdsourcing with a curated, closely managed workforce and intelligent algorithms that match the right task to the right worker at the right time.

      proposition: the pendulum from open/bottom-up swings back to more top-down and curation

    1. Field Engineer Story

      First field engineer in the field of telecommunications and networks:

      Telecommunication engineering has seen immense advances in the recent years and thus, the role of a field engineer has also evolved. Telecommunication engineering is among the most evolving industries in the world. It is a branch of electrical engineering and it dates back to the 18th century when there were beacons and telegraphs used for communication.

      The first field engineer in the field of telecommunications and networks was Claude Chappe, who was a French engineer. Then we have a long list of field engineers such as Thomas Edison, Carlos Slim, and many more. After the advent of computer networks and the internet in the 20th century, the role of a field engineer completely changed.

      Who created the first telecom company that offers a link between consumer and employees?

      The telecom industry is expected to expand even more in the coming years, but to date, the world's top telecommunication companies have reached a market value of over $50 billion. China Mobile Ltd., Verizon Communications Inc., and AT&T Inc. are the leaders in the world of telecommunication service providers. These companies serve as a link between the consumer and the employees, allowing them to communicate whether they're using traditional wired telephones or mobile phones.

      We created the FE On Demand Freelance Marketplace Platform to streamline engagement between field engineers and businesses looking for them.
