Work Futures is a community exploration of critical themes underlying our understanding of work, ranging across the deep tectonic changes going on in our rapidly changing economy and society. I'll be sparking the community discussion with long-format writing, original and secondary research, and active curation of what's showing up on my radar.

This work is an outgrowth of the publication Work Futures at Medium, and I will be transitioning much of what I have written there to stoweboyd.com/workfutures.

Unlike a lot of other writing about work, my approach is not rah-rah aspirational mumbo-jumbo intended to motivate would-be business leaders, a recapitulation of the sayings of famous entrepreneurs, or the tired repetition of conventional, bronze age wisdom. 

One of the goals of this project is to craft a book from the long-format writing developed, with input and feedback from patrons. More to follow on that under the Working Futures imprint.

As my decades of writing shows, I'm interested in digging into the economics, politics, history, technologies, and future of work, from the viewpoint of the individual, the workforce, and the business, and I have little tolerance for unsupported biases masquerading as universal truth. 

I thank you for your interest and support. Let's make this happen.
