“The other possibility is one in which workers own their own platform. That might be set up as a platform cooperative. But we need to think about “platform” as something that can be as small as one worker’s self-owned shop, and that can be used in ways that prevent value extraction and alienation.”
Lots of good thinking in this about passion, work, platforms, and more. I especially like the way in which the emphasis was on worker ownership and a broadening definition of platform.
