Hi Dewayne,

One leading thinker in this field is Trebor Scholz. He has a new book – Ours to Hack and to Own – which argues that “gig” workers should organize into cooperatives. http://www.orbooks.com/catalog/ours-to-hack-and-to-own/

The book will be launched at the 2nd Platform Cooperativism conference in NYC, Nov 11-13. http://platformcoop.net/2016
