Broadband, as I have written in the past, is freeing us from the geographic restrictions. Broadband, the platform, is changing the workforce, innovation and entrepreneurship. Virtual workers, virtual start ups are now becoming part of popular vernacular. Going Bedouin is the buzz.
The trend is so closely tied to the proliferation of broadband and wireless connectivity, something we are pretty obsessed about. Connectivity is only part of the equation, for the virtual nature of work brings up lifestyle issues. It brings up questions about how to work, and when not to work.
Big issues, and I have faced many of them in my short life as an entrepreneur. And that’s why we are launching the newest member of GigaOM family, WebWorkerDaily. Hope you can join in the conversation, and share your thoughts, insights and inspirations.

uh, nice posting over there, but what exactly is the point? is there some distinct content focus or personality that we should see evidenced within the writing, or simply an alternate domain with similar topics and same writers? if you’re really gonna go at it with that proletariat-style title, perhaps you oughta consider a more simple forum approach, or a digg style site where you might lead discussion on interesting articles and items (hmmm, you could do this with the pligg english implementation of meneame.net’s open source digg clone…just a thought 🙂
good questions. While we deal with mostly issues of technology, and business here at gigaom, webworkerdaily is more about “how you work” and lifestyles and other related topics. for instance, there are issues of dealing with cabin fever, or working remotely and still trying to be part of a team.
on the forum suggestion, we are waiting to get the design/backend implemented and of course, it will be open to discussions and all your thoughts and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
I am not sure about the pligg and would have to look into it. If you would like to be part of the weblog, just let us know … we are always looking for thoughtful folks like yourself.
