Good post by @bryce on my "continuous partial employment" riff. It's derived, of course from +Linda Stone's "continuous partial attention", but also a hat tip to @heymarci for "slash careers" (I'm an x/y/z) and @danpink for Free Agent Nation.

I think the "gig economy" will be a reality for some of my kids. Not because there aren't jobs to be had (although there be fewer of the traditional form) but because they want more flexibility in their life.

We often think of freelancing as being a sad form of partial unemployment, leaving people perpetually stressed and poor (and that can certainly be the case for many in the market) but don't forget that this also describes many of our most creative industries, from Hollywood (teams form for projects and then dissolve) to open source and community project development.

As the economy shifts this way anyway, countless sites are growing to make the market for spot talent more efficient, from the original guru.com, Elance, and Topcoder to specialty sites in graphic design and technical writing. It will be interesting to watch to see if they can become a viable lifetime career choice for many, rather than a stopgap between full-time jobs.

:: The Rebel’s Manifesto

1. Do the opposite of what you were taught in school.

2. Care not for the opinions of others. They are based on their own thoughts and fears.

3. Study the work of other rebels. Steal things from them. Research with fury.

4. Forget about the competition. They are on a different path than you. Trends are for suckers.

5. “There’s nothing we really need to do that isn’t dangerous”— John Cage. Do the things that scare you on a daily basis.

6. Make a mess.

7. Embrace your darkside. Your so called “Dark Qualities” (or labels) are a source of great power. Find a way to incorporate them into your work. Feature them. Pay particular attention to what makes you angry.

8. Exercise your voice. Put your thoughts, ideas and opinions out into the world even if it scares the shit out of you (see number 5).

9. Expand your horizons. Leave home. Visit other places/cultures. Wander aimlessly.

10. Never limit your playtime. Even if your brain is telling you otherwise. All of your best stuff comes from it, if you allow yourself to remain open to the unknown.

11. Question EVERYTHING.

13. Follow your heart.
